Official Summary

Fairness in Firearm Testing Act - Amends the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to direct the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to make a video recording of the entire process of its examination and testing of an item for the purpose of determining whether the item is a firearm (and if so, the type of firearm) or ammunition. Bars ATF from editing or erasing any such recording. Directs ATF to make available a digital video disc that contains a copy of the recording:
(1) at the request of a person who claims an ownership interest in such item; and
(2) to a defendant in a criminal proceeding involving such item. Provides that an item which ATF has determined is a firearm or ammunition shall not be admissible as evidence unless:
(1) ATF has complied with the requirements of this Act to make its digital video disc available; or
(2) such compliance has been waived in writing by the person against whom the item is offered as evidence.
