WHAT IS AN NFA TRUST?
An NFA Trust is a method of owning Title II (commonly referred to as “Class 3”) firearms that provides substantially more legal protection than individual or corporate ownership. Created pursuant to and in conformance with the National Firearms Act, an NFA Trust is commonly drafted as a revocable living trust for the limited purpose of holding title to Title II personal firearms and weapons.
NFA Trusts are commonly used for ownership of federally regulated firearms, also known as Title II, Class 3, or NFA firearms. Title II firearms include short-barreled rifles and shotguns, silencers (suppressors), machine guns, destructive devices, etc.
There are several important benefits to using an NFA Trust:
NOTICE REGARDING DRAMATIC CHANGES IN FIREARMS LAWS AFFECTING MILLIONS OF LAWFUL GUN OWNERS
Attention! Your spouse, significant other or family member may soon be in possession of “illegal” firearms and items that could, if discovered, put your entire household in legal jeopardy with possible jail time.
Firearms Laws concerning the definition of “Short Barrel Rifles” and “Pistol Stabilizing Braces” are about to change dramatically! An Executive Order on these points is likely imminently forthcoming. If you or someone in your household currently own an AR15 Pistol that does NOT meet ATF’s new (and arbitrary) definition of “pistol,” you will soon have 4 OPTIONS from which to choose. Your choice could have dire consequences.
YOUR OPTIONS ARE:
OPTION 1:Immediately Destroy or Surrender the item(s) to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF).
OPTION 2: Change the configuration of the Pistol to make it compliant with the new ATF Regulations (good luck with that!).
OPTION 3: Register each item as a Title II / Class 3 Short Barreled Rifle with the ATF. By far the best way to accomplish this is by using an NFA Trust (as discussed here).
OPTION 4: Put yourself and your family at risk of being arrested on Federal felony charges by ignoring the new Executive Order and doing none of the above.
