Federal law prohibits an individual from acquiring or possessing ammunition if he or she:1. Has been convicted of a crime punishable by more than one year of imprisonment.2. Is a fugitive from justice.3. Unlawfully uses or is addicted to any controlled substance.4. Has been adjudicated as a mental defective or has been committed to a mental institution.5. Is an alien illegally in the United States or an alien admitted under a non-immigrant visa.6. Has been discharged from the Armed Forces under dishonorable conditions.7. Has renounced his US citizenship.8. Is subject to a court order restraining him from harassing, stalking, or threatening an intimate partner or such partner's child.9. Has been convicted of a domestic violence crime.
The law also prohibits anyone under indictment or information for a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year from lawfully acquiring ammunition (18 USC 922(g) and (n), 27 CFR 478. 32), but he may continue to lawfully possess ammunition obtained before the indictment or information, according to the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (BATF).
For initial orders only, federal law requires that any individual purchasing or receiving rifle ammunition is at least 18 years of age and at least 21 years of age for pistol ammunition. Consequently, in non-face-to-face transactions, we are required to keep proof of age requirements via a signed statement. This information can be found in Title 18 USC Chapter 44, Section 922 (b) 1, and 922(x) 1.
***Legal Note: A 37mm launcher is exempt from NFA laws and tax stamps as long as it is used to launch flares, smoke, or gas. The launching of any anti-personnel munitions makes it a destructive device and subject to NFA laws and tax stamps.
ATF has previously held that devices designed for expelling tear gas or pyrotechnic signals are not weapons and are exempt from the destructive device definition. However, ammunition designed to be used against individuals is available for these 37/38mm devices. This "anti-personnel" ammunition consists of cartridges containing wood pellets, rubber pellets or balls, and bean bags.
When a gas/flare gun is possessed with anti-personnel-type ammunition, it clearly becomes an instrument of offensive or defensive combat and is capable of use as a weapon. Since these gas/flare guns have a bore diameter of greater than 0.5”, fire a projectile by the means of an explosive, and, when possessed with anti-personnel ammunition, are capable of use as weapons, the combination of the gas/flare gun and anti-personnel ammunition is a destructive device as defined in the GCA and NFA.
As a result, registration as a destructive device is required. Any person possessing a gas/flare gun with which anti-personnel ammunition will be used must register the making of a destructive device prior to the acquisition of any anti-personnel ammunition. In addition, the gas/flare guns are classified as firearms as defined by the GCA when possessed with anti-personnel-type ammunition.
