We've served clients all over the world by phone and email, including clients serving in Iraq, Afghanistan, and aboard a US Navy destroyer 'somewhere in the North Atlantic.' Most recently we served a groom in Las Vegas as his bride was in the next room preparing for their wedding. These experiences underline our commitment to accommodate our clients and to provide high quality services at a reasonable cost.

Our Arsenal Gun Trust clients increasingly request BATFE permission to manufacture or make an NFA firearm. Most often these situations concern the building of a short-barreled rifle (SBR). A manufacturer must identify themselves by engraving their name on the firearm they have created. In the case of an SBR, particularly one built on the AR15 platform, it can sometimes be challenging to find space available for this engraving. We wanted to share a video demonstrating how the engraving could be located in the trigger well.
We provide clients extensive guidance in this process, including the preparation of a Form 1, the specific legal requirements for the engraving, and practical help, including the placement of engraving and the best name of a trust considering these purposes.
Special thanks go to our friend Jeff May of US Tactical for providing us this video of his gunsmithing skills and capabilities.
Recent media reports and a White House press conference brought attention to ongoing efforts by the Obama Administration to expand gun control through executive orders and regulatory changes bypassing Congressional approval. This agenda includes a proposal to change the rules concerning use of trusts for firearms regulated by the National Firearms Act (“NFA”). This proposal has not received final approval. If that approval is given, an effective date for any new rules must be announced with enough advance notice to provide regulators and the regulated enough time to come into compliance. Thus far, the proposed rule changes would seem to allow continued use of trusts for NFA firearms particularly for two very important benefits: to allow possession of NFA firearms by others and to create an estate plan for the inheritance of a gun collection outside the court system.
For those who believe future gun controls will make gun ownership more difficult, then they should consider acting now to get their affairs in order before any new gun controls take effect. Arsenal Attorneys continue to monitor developments closely, and we are ready to help clients get their affairs in order in light of the continued efforts by the Executive branch of the Federal government to restrict gun ownership.
In light of recent proposals by the Obama administration to initiate new gun controls on NFA firearms, we believe now is the time to act. If you do not already have an Arsenal Gun Trust, now is the time to contact us to create one and to use it immediately. If you are one of our existing clients, use your Arsenal Gun Trust immediately to submit applications to BATFE for NFA firearms.
The reported executive order concerning NFA firearms is still in the proposal stage. We will shortly recommend ways to exercise your rights to influence the rule-making process. We will probably not see any final decisions, if any, and an effective date for new regulations until months from now.
Nevertheless, act now to have the best chance to avoid future restrictions that could make your applications to BATFE more difficult at a later date.
Arsenal Attorneys is committed to answering your questions about estate planning, firearms, business law, litigation, and criminal defense issues.
We'll gladly discuss your case with you at your convenience. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
