NSSF, ATF Launch Operation Secure Store

NSSF and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) announced during the 2018 SHOT Show the launch of Operation Secure Store (OSS), a comprehensive joint initiative to help Federal Firearms Licensees (FFL) make well-informed security-related decisions to deter and prevent thefts.

Central to the OSS initiative are NSSF's prior partnerships with ATF to help prevent thefts from FFLs through educational programming, such as the ongoing series of regional seminars hosted by ATF. Additionally, ATF's and NSSF's matching-rewards program is an anchor component of the program, effectively doubling the money offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for thefts from licensed retailers.

“No one wants to prevent the theft of firearms more than the licensed retailers who sell them,” said Stephen L. Sanetti, NSSF President and Chief Executive Officer. “There is no one-size-fits-all solution to helping prevent thefts from firearms retailers, which is why Operation Secure Store is so important.”
