Florida Employers have to let employees keep guns in their cars if they have a concealed weapons permit. But, businesses can still have a no gun policy for customers for now.
U.S. District Judge Robert L. Hinkle states that there is no second amendment right to bring your gun to someones property and that customers would have the same right as employees under the new legislation but for the working of the statute which may be fixed later.
The law defines employer as a business with employees who own guns.
Often I am asked if there are annual fees associated with a NFA Firearms trust. In most states, there is no registration of a Firearms trust and because it is revocable there are no tax returns or governmental fees associated with the yearly maintenance of the NFA trust. This is one of the major benefits of using a NFA trust over a Corporation or LLC to purchase class III firearms.
NFA TRUST FORMATION is a process of creating a Trust for the specific purpose of Purchasing Class III firearms and transferring Class III firearms. A NFA TRUST is specifically created to comply with the TItle II requirements in dealing with Class 3 firearms. Class 3 Firearms are items regulated by the National Firearms Act ( NFA) and are typically sound suppressors, silencers, short-barreled shotguns or shotguns, and machine guns.
Most NFA Trusts are formed to bypass a CLEO signature, but there are many additional advantages to purchasing class 3 firearms with a NFA Firearms Trust. These include dealing with issues of constructive possession, transfer of the assets upon death, and avoiding many of the improper purchases and transfers that contain criminal penalties.
NFA trusts are private, no one knows about them unless you disclose the information
Multiple people can be in possession or use the NFA class 3 firearms.
You can protect your spouse from potential criminal liability that is associated with individual ownership.
No CLEO sign off is required, no fingerprints
The time to acquire items is significantly reduced
If you send the certificate of Trust your application will be denied. You must send the full Firearms Trust with the Form 4
There are no yearly state or federal filing fees associated with a NFA trust. We recommend opening a bank account at a bank that has no fees to keep the costs lower. If the Trustee and the Beneficiary are different people the trusts require an annual Accounting. - A listing of the assets and their values
You may use your NFA Firearms/Gun Trust to purchase items in the future. Assuming you are in a state that allows the purchase of the items you desire, you may use your firearms trust to purchase additional items without creating a new trust.
You can purchase items this year, next year and in the future with a NFA trust as there are no limits to the number of items that the trust can contain or purchase.
Only the ATF and those you choose to tell will know about your NFA Gun Trust. Like most revocable trusts they are not kept on file in most states so there is publicly available information on who created, manages, benefits from or what is contained in the trust.
When you fill out your form 4, a check for the fee, a copy of the full declaration of trust, and an assignment of the weapon should be sent in with the application.
