    Received this response from Ruppersberger’s office. (The italicized text is from the ATF…)
    1. Form/eForm xxxxxxx, control #xxxxxxxxxx, was received on 05-24‐2023. As of 11‐14‐2023, it is “PENDING”. It appears that the Form 4 application is awaiting final processing.
    2. Form/eForm xxxxxxx, control # xxxxxxxxxx, was received on 06-15‐2023. As of 11‐14‐2023, it is “PENDING”. It appears that the Form 4 application is awaiting final processing.
    I trust the foregoing has been responsive to your inquiry. Should you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me.


    I am so pleased our office was able to help facilitate a response from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in regard to your ATF registered silencers applications inquiry. I hope you find this information helpful as to the specific details of your approval process and where the ATF is in their process of approving your applications. At this time, it is customary to follow the standard waiting time for your approval applications to be processed by the ATF, as the applications are awaiting the final processing stages. With this formal response from the ATF, your ATF inquiry case will be closed with our office.

    Translated: “ATF has it. Wait your turn.”

    (Nevermind the ATF is processing many out of order.)
