Proposed NFA Form Changes

From - http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2...-form-changes/

From According to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affiars a series of changes are being proposed to the NFA transfer process (the process involved in acquiring a machine gun, suppressor, short barreled rifle/shotgun, etc.). These changes will:

Eliminate the requirement of a law enforcement official to sign your forms
Require each responsible person of a corporation, trust or legal entity to complete a specified form 1 or 4
Require each member of a trust to complete and to submit photographs and fingerprints with forms
Require that a copy of all forms be forwarded to the chief law enforcement officer of the locality in which the maker or transferee is located
This series of proposed changes seemingly eliminates the benefits of forming an “NFA Trust”, a popular way to easily facilitate navigating the difficult NFA process. The elimination of the dreaded law enforcement signature for individuals however is a definite benefit.
