If you live in a city in where the Chief law Enforcement Officer (CLEO) will not or easily sign a Form 4, there are several solutions.

Baretta 22 SuppressedClass 3 Weapons include suppressors, , short barrel rifles, machine guns, and other destructive devices.

The most common solution is to create a NFA revocable trust to hold title to the firearm or class 3 items.

Violators may be fined up to $250,000, and imprisoned up to 10 years, or both.

In addition, any vessel, vehicle or aircraft used to transport, conceal or possess an unregistered NFA firearm is subject to seizure and forfeiture, as is the weapon itself.

An individual, business, or NFA Firearms trust may not register an unregistered NFA firearm.  Only a manufacture, maker, and importer can register a firearm.

Possession of an unregistered NFA firearms is a crime.  The ATF states that if you are in possession of a contraband firearm, you should contact the nearest ATF office to arrange for its disposition.

WARNING – although this is the advise of the AFT, they also state that mere possession is unlawful

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has an article on an odd application of the NFA and consequences of an improper transfer. This type of result only furthers support that NFA restricted items should be help in a NFA Gun Trust to help avoid invalid transfers.

The US District Judge said that Olofson, knew that the gun fired automatically and gave it to someone else to use on a shooting range. This is a technical violation of the NFA and could have subjected Olofson to 10 years in jail and $250,000 in penalties.

If you want a Silencer, Short barreled Riffle, or Machine gun and want to protect your family and friends from an accidental transfer or a case involving constructive possession, you should Contact Gun Trust Lawyer® to explain the benefits of using a NFA gun Trust.
