Frequently, FFLs inquire as to whether they can sell a firearm to an individual who lacks government-issued photo identification. Consistent with 27 C.F.R. 478.11 and 478.124©, a purchaser may be identified by any combination of documents that together establish all of the following required information: 1. Name; 2. Residence address; 3. Date of birth; and 4. Photograph of the purchaser.
Thus, a purchaser could use a government-issued non-driver license photo ID, in combination with a Social Security card, or other form of ID, that establishes the required information. If you ever have a question, before proceeding with a sale, call your local ATF field office to inquire as to whether the documents you are utilizing are acceptable.
