I don’t have an account on The High Road, so I have no way to respond to this other than here.Â It’s very important to make a distinction between asking for a document, and making a legal inquiry.Â The office that handles FOIA requests can handle one type of request, but not the others.Â All that needs to be asked is this:
Pursuant to the federal Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. Â§ 552, I request access to and copies of all documents relating to the FFL Holder: Joshua Alan Sugarman 1730 Rhode Island Avenue NW #1014 Washington DC 20036 License Number: 1-54-XXX-XX-XX-00725.
That should be all you need.Â Anything else:
Justification of how a 501c(3) non-profit corporation can obtain a type 1 FFL when the intent of having a type 1 FFL is to: devote time, attention, and labor to dealing in firearms as a regular course of trade or business with the principal objective of livelihood and profit through the repetitive purchase and resale of firearms.
This is a legal question, not a request for documents the government has, which is what FOIA governs. It’s important to stick to that, and remember that a FOIA request isn’t The Inquisition.Â The less complicated you make things for the bureaucrats who handle this stuff, the more likely the request will be successful.
