New NFA Trust Rules Go Into Effect July 13, 2016

New NFA Trust Rules Go Into Effect July 13, 2016

| January 25, 2016 | 2 Comments

The ATF published 41F on January 15th. This means that the new rules for NFA Trusts will go into effect on July 13th. Any application submitted before July 13 will be processed under the old rules. I helped several people submit Form 1s recently, and I am sure the ATF is swamped with applications. I […]

We have been watching “41P,” the ATF’s proposal to change NFA trusts. Despite significant comments from the public, the ATF has decided to roll out some changes. New requirements under 41F (what 41P will be named after it is enacted): Each responsible party in a trust must provide proof of citizenship, or a certification that a […]

My Form 1 came back for my MasterPiece Arms MPA930SST yesterday. A few interesting factoids: Someone at the ATF was working at 6:22AM Central time on a Saturday. It took the ATF 36 days to process my stamp, including weekends. I am not sure if the ATF works on Sundays, so that’s 31 working days. […]

ATF Ruling on 41P Gun Trust Changes Delayed Until May 2015

The ATF expressed interest in changing how NFA Trusts work late in 2013. The worst of the changes was the required fingerprinting of each trustee, photos of each trustee, followed by a LEO sign-off and background check. The ATF asked for comments, and the firearms community responded en masse. According to a post by the […]

Sometimes beauracracy works in your favor. The ATF ruled that trusts were not people. I am not sure why they decided this, perhaps it was to circumvent due process afforded citizens. Anyway, 18 USC 922(o) states that : (o) (1) Except as provided in paragraph (2), it shall be unlawful for any person to transfer or possess […]

According to Rule 1140-AA43, the ATF has listed “01-00-2015” as the nearest date that they will make a ruling. The ATF, under the direction of Barack Obama, is considering making changes to how trusts […]

When I read about the ATF’s desire in 2013 to change how NFA applications by Trusts were handled (I have one) I decided to add a few last-minute firearms to my trust. The ATF wanted to change the rules by the end of 2013, but there was enough outcry that they pushed a decision back […]

Historically, real or proposed gun legislation has spurred firearms ownership in the United States. Obama’s saber rattling after the Sandy Hook shooting in 2013 caused the sale of over a million firearms in December 2013 alone. The ATF has proposed massive updates to the NFA application process. The biggest change is the requirement that all […]
