Newbie with a question - Fulton County Chief of Police. Does anyone here know the policy of the Fulton County Police Chief with regard to signing ATF Form 1? Will he sign it or not? I can't find anything on the web where this have come up before. Update: 9/11/16 Disregard as I found the answer. ATF regulation has changed July 2016. The new regulation only requires that the CLEO be notified. His signature is no longer required.
