Not a joke. This is an actual press release from the DOJ:

If you are asking yourself, “Wait a minute, Don’t guns already come with locks and have a for a while now?” Well, yes.

The DOJ published their press release announcing the new rule for the New Year, along with a Best Practices Guide for federal firearms licensees (FFLs). The rule says it codifies a Gun Control Act provision that requires all firearm retailers to certify that they do, in fact, offer some sort of secure storage option for sale at the same location from which firearms are sold. That includes a safe, gun safe, gun case, lock box or other device that is designed to be or can be used to store a firearm and that is designed to be unlocked only by means of a key, a combination or other similar means.

NSSF notes, however, that firearm retailers have already been doing this. Firearm retailers have had to certify to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) when they apply or reapply for their federal firearm license that they make secure storage devices available for sale. This rule handed down by Attorney General Garland only implements what’s already being done. This is nothing new or earth shattering, despite what the Biden administration would have you think.

Since 1997, firearm manufacturers have been voluntarily providing free locking devices with each new firearm they ship from their factory. That’s a lock in the box of every new gun. Some manufacturers had already been providing free locks for decades.

Beyond all that, there’s already a law that requires what firearm retailers have been doing. The bipartisan Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), that President Joe Biden wants so desperately to scrap, includes a provision called the “Child Safety Lock Act of 2005.” That portion of the law requires firearm retailers to provide a safety locking device with each handgun they transfer.

Biden’s DOJ orders gun dealers to issue gun locks, which they already do (

For over 2 decades, the gun lock has been offered with firearms, but somehow this escaped the best and bright minds of the Biden DOJ and in an effort to look butch in Gun Control to its core, they came up with this regulation.

Make you feel good that we have “experts” in the field proudly coming up with solutions that have already been up and running. I am sure next they will mandate showers and/or bathtubs in new home so people can properly wash themselves.

  1. Nothing new. Look at the laws your local idiot liberals have been pushing- regurgitation of laws already in affect. It keeps the liberal morons calm…

  2. Well, I was down to the Used Car lot,just last week, inquiring about a certain little two seater I’ve been yearning quite a bit. We got most of the details worked out when the dang salesman threw me a curve.. He asked me what kinda garage I was planning on parking it in. When I said all I have is a car port he just started stacking my paperwork up and told me to come back when I was ready to be a responsible sports car owner and could provide a proper garage and locking doors.
    I’ve got a buddy who Has a garage,, and I’m thinking I can get him to buy it for me.

    1. That could be construed as a straw purchase, you wouldn’t want the DOT BoSCP (Bureau of Sports Car Protection) on your case.

  3. Careful here.

    Do not be sure the regulatory or statutory definition of “secure gun storage or safety device” may have changed. It may now excluded a simple padlock, and require an enclosure of some kind.

    Did not have to be a firearm law or an ATF regulation that changed it either, a rider on a bill naming a Post Office could have done it under the radar.

    1. Whuut? You mean people can and will change the definition of a word to forward their agenda?
      Yeah, you are right, and I absolutely had not considered that.
      I read something recently,,
      No matter how cynical you are, you’re still naive.

      Thanks for pointing that out..

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
