Many of our Gun Trust clients and readers have asked what they can do to help prevent the implementation of 41P.
As you may be aware, Firearms Industry Consulting Group® has reported that the Administration is working through the Holiday Season on new regulations to limit our Second Amendment rights and that ATF intends to move forward with ATF-41p in the New Year.
The efforts to strip funding for 41P have been removed from the latest budgets and as a result will have no effect on implementing 41P. What will be implemented and when it will be effective is still unknown, but it looks like that there will need to be an appeal. Below are the two amendments that were removed that were designed to be an end run around 41P.
Amendment 302 provided “that such funds appropriated for BATF shall be available to investigate or act upon applications for relief from Federal firearms disabilities under United States Code”
Amendment 320 provided ATF was prohibited from “the use of funds to propose or to issue a rule that would change the Chief Law Enforcement Officer certificate requirement with respect to purchase of suppressors and other firearms regulated by the National Firearms Act.”
In that vein, we need your help to to FIGHT the ATF, when if it implements any final rule in relation to ATF-41p.
Unfortunately, with the magnitude of this type of litigation, FICG needs funding and has set up the website – www.FightATF41p.com – to provide the background on ATF-41p and to seek donations. Some of our viewers may remember that we hired FICG® to draft our Comment in opposition to ATF-41p. We will continue to keep our 41P webpage updated. If you are considering creating a trust to purchase a suppressor, SBR, SBS, DD, AOW, or Machine Gun you should consider acting quickly.
Please take a minute to review www.FightATF41p.com and consider a donation to FICG® to support bringing the FIGHT to ATF.
Remember, many of the advantages to use a Gun trust over individual ownership will not be changed by 41p. There are many online Gun Trusts that do not provide the features and advantages that can be incorporated into a well drafted NFA Gun Trust. If your trust doesn’t deal with
- The proper way to purchase an NFA firearm
- Who can use, when they can use
- Who can possess, how kids are involved or if they can,
- Multi state ownership and possession
- Who can sell?
- H0w to properly sell trust assets
- What happens if I become incapacitated, or a prohibited person.
Many of the trusts we have reviewed, do not address these or the many other issues that are important for firearms ownership, possession, transfer, and use. If you would like your trust reviewed under the federal issues, just send us a copy for a complimentary trust review.
