Recently, our friends at the Firearms Coalition have alerted us to the fact that the ATF is proposing changes to NFA transfer regulations. Needless to say, these would not be positive changes. As though they weren’t slow enough already, the proposed changes would slow NFA transfers down even further, and worse, they would make NFA ownership near impossible in many areas of the country. To better understand this issue, the Firearms Coalition is recommending this posting, written by John Pierce.

Fortunately, there is an online location where you can still voice opposition to these proposed changes, but time is running out. Comments must be posted by this Monday, December 9th. GRNC encourages its supporters to take a moment to visit this site and leave comments to help fend off this attack on your gun rights.

The background provided by John Pierce may be helpful in considering this issue and composing your comment. His posting even contains some excellent suggested comments.

Below, you’ll find a link to the comment page for these new proposed laws. Your comments are needed. Also below, under “Deliver This Message,” you’ll find a sample comment that you can use.

(The suggested comment below is just one of several suggested comments, written by John Pierce, and available at this location).

The proposed rulemaking intrudes unnecessarily upon the sovereignty of states by interfering with the lawful uses of trust instruments for legitimate estate planning purposes.  In addition, the proposed rulemaking demonstrates a complete lack of understanding of the many ways that a trust might be used to pass assets on to one’s heirs.  By defining the term ‘responsible person’ so broadly as to include beneficiaries, one finds oneself having to contemplate the absurd possibility of fingerprinting, photographing, and securing CLEO sign-offs for unborn children.
