Is there a grace period for 41F?

ATF sealRecently Arsenal Attorneys™ sat down with an ATF officer with 15 years of experience, and we discussed two rumors concerning 41F--the new rules for registering NFA firearms (silencers/suppressors, short barrel rifles, etc.) commencing July 13. Both rumors involve grace periods.

The first rumor concerns whether the fingerprinting and photographs required by 41F will be waived for applications made within 24 months of the applicant's last application to register an NFA firearm. Although ATF announced this policy in its own official statement on 41F published in the Federal Register, they have broken their promise. All new applications to register NFA firearms under 41F, starting July 13, 2016, must include the fingerprints and photographs of each responsible person at the time of the application.  

The second rumor appears to have no basis in fact whatsoever. Our source told us there is a rumor claiming there will be a six-month grace period after July 13 during which ATF will accept applications without fingerprints and photographs. This is false. 

Because of 41F, we recommend you submit applications to register NFA firearms before July 13; however the world will not come to end on that date. The new version of our Arsenal Gun Trust™ will minimize the effects of 41F and allow you to enjoy optimal security and privacy for your gun collection. Therefore our clients will continue to enjoy the opportunity to register new NFA firearms, allow possession by others, and provide an estate plan for their collection.

Arsenal Attorneys™ is perhaps the only law firm offering direct attorney-client relationships for the creation of a gun trust for NFA firearms. We use no middle man, so you know who is responsible for the work. You and your successors will likely have the opportunity to seek our support in the future even if you relocate to another state, which would be an entirely different jurisdiction with its own laws. Not only is the Arsenal Gun Trust™ designed to be portable and valid in other states, subject to local gun laws, but our national law practice could be there just when you need us.

Our law firm provides a variety of other services, including general estate planning, business services, criminal defense, and civil litigation. While we serve a variety of clients, we are renowned for our solutions tailored for the special needs of gun owners and the firearms industry. We represent many new and growing businesses in the firearms industry, including gun ranges and manufacturers. Arsenal Attorneys™ has also served as the general counsel for a presidential campaign. Please consider us when you face a new opportunity to pursue or an emerging problem to solve.

If you're located in metropolitan Washington, DC, watch for details of special events organized by our law firm. Our "Essentials of Self-Defense Law Seminar" is very popular and takes place at NRA Headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia. We also lead the organizing committee of the "National Capital Friends of NRA", whose banquet at Army Navy Country Club in Arlington, Virginia raises money for educational programs.
