North Las Vegas, Nev.– The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) -- the trade association for the firearms industry -- has announced a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the theft of firearms from the Guns World LLC Federal Firearm Licensee (FFL)
ATF is offering a reward up to $5,000, which will be matched by the NSSF for a total reward of up to $10,000.
This reward is part of a larger national cooperative initiative between the NSSF and ATF in which the NSSF matches ATF rewards in cases involving the theft of firearms from federally licensed firearms retailers. ATF works closely with members of the firearms industry to curb the criminal acquisition and misuse of firearms.
