National Firearms Act/Class III

Most people assume that suppressors, machine guns, short barreled rifles, and shotguns are illegal to possess.  We get this question asked quite frequently in the shop.  With the right paperwork these can be legally obtained, possessed and enjoyed.  

Class III possession is an easy process when completed in the right manner.  It takes patience due to long waits.  Purchasing can either be done by an individual tax stamp or through a trust.  See below for some facts regarding those.

What is 41F?
On January 15, 2016 the rule known as 41F was published into the Federal Register by ATF.  This new rule affected the transfer of items that are regulated by the National Firearms Act (NFA).  It significantly altered the way individual members of "gun trusts" or "NFA trusts" operated with regard to possessing NFA items.  The rule became effective July 13, 2016.

Requirements for a responsible person when submitting Form 1 and Form 4 applications.
Rule 41F mandates that any responsible person submitting a Form 1 or Form 4 application on behalf of a trust must include:
  1. A 2x2 photograph (passport) taken within one year prior to the date of application.
  2. Two completed fingerprint cards.
  3. A completed NFA Responsible Person Questionnaire (ATF Form 5320.23).
  4. A Copy of their NFA Trust.
Responsible persons must submit all pertinent forms to their Chief Law Enforcement Officer (CLEO).

What is a "responsible person" by definition?
According to the rule, a "responsible person" is any member of a trust "who [has] the power and authority to direct the management and policies of the trust or legal entity to receive, possess, ship, transport, deliver, transfer, or otherwise dispose of a firearm for, or on behalf of, the trust or entity."  The definition effectively includes any individual who might be involved in the acquisition or construction of a NFA Firearm.

Removal of CLEO sign-off requirement
One of the good things to come out of 41F is the removal of the CLEO sign-off requirement for individual applicants.  Now individual applicants need to submit a notification to their CLEO by way of sending them a copy of all pertinent documents.  While trust applicants were not required to obtain a CLEO sign-off before, they are now mandated to submit notification when a NFA item is manufactured or transferred.

Trusts still have value!
Even after 41F went into effect, trusts are still eminently useful as a means for inexpensively transferring NFA items to one's descendants in the event of the trust holder's death.  In addition trusts are still the most legally sound method of responsibly sharing NFA items with others.
