Quote for the Day

Failure to address the new issues raised by Rule 41F will expose owners of firearms trusts to the risk of committing a new kind of accidental felony, i.e. related to a failure to document an RP [responsible person]. Firearms trusts must be reviewed–and likely revised–to clarify the roles of the parties involved and whether or not they are RPs. If new NFA applications are made following implementation, it might be advisable to limit the number of “responsible persons” as defined by Rule 41F to avoid substantial paperwork or risking liability for unlawful transfer of an NFA firearm. The legal consequences of failing to comply with the NFA can be severe, including fines of up to $250,000 and up to 10 years in prison, as well as confiscation of the firearm(s) involved.
