Alerts & "Bounces"
Points to note with JPFO alert emails.

Alerts can sometimes bounce!

Note - (July 2011) We notice sometimes that out of the thousands of alerts sent out, there can be rather high numbers of "bounces" - on checking with our provider it would seem that now and again an ISP makes some change to their email settings and that can result in non-delivery to those using that ISP.

If it happens to be something like Hotmail, Yahoo or even gmail - then many can be affected temporarily. For those who miss out on one of our sendings, we apologize, but the provider does try to stay ahead of things when they can by making changes in their own settings to reflect ISP changes and so control the bounces, which we like to see as zero!

If in doubt, please check the alerts archive to make sure you have not missed anything. Also, if you get alerts do please open them!

Chris, Webmaster.

Some further information sent in by a member



(Index of associated material)


In ATF Ruling 2008-2, the first criteria for an automated A/D Bound book system is:

"1. All data entered into the computer system must be recorded into the database and cannot be capable of being edited or modified at a later date without generating an audit trail. The software system must retain any correction of errors as an entirely new entry, without deleting or modifying the original entry. The system may allow for entries in a notes column to explain any correction."

This is an impossible requirement. There is not a computer system made that is not capable of being "edited or modified at a later date … ". A software system could be built which would generate an audit trail, but any competent computer person can easily modify the content of the automated A/D Bound Book and bypass (evade) any audit trail. Therefore, every system being used by every FFL fails to comply with this requirement. Is this intentional? When BATF comes to audit an FFL, they can always find this violation …

♦ — A&D is a licensed dealer’s acquisition and disposition book, separate from his 4473s, and in which the dealer logs in all firearms as they come in, and as they are sold.
