Michigan Governor Rick Snyder has signed into law a reform legalizing short barreled rifles (SBR) and short barreled shotguns (SBS). Not long ago, the Great Lake State also legalized silencers. Thus, Michiganders (Michiganians to some) may register the full range of firearms regulated under federal law by Title 2 of the National Firearms Act (NFA), including fully automatic firearms--so long as these firearms comply with federal regulations.
When registering NFA firearms, Michigan residents may use an Arsenal Gun Trust by Arsenal Attorneys. This way, the registration of the NFA firearms with BATFE can be completed without fingerprinting, mug shots, or sign off by local police. Additionally, by using a legal entity like the Arsenal Gun Trust, Michigan residents may take advantage of ATF eFile. This relatively new system processes NFA tax stamps and registrations in as little as 1/4 of the normal time. Otherwise, tax stamps for NFA registrations made by an individual person could take as long as 12-14 months.
The Arsenal Gun Trust offers the added benefit of enabling the client to permit legal possesion of their NFA firearms by others they have named in his Arsenal Gun Trust.
Arsenal Attorneys' Managing Attorney, Matthew Bergstrom (MSU '94, Indiana U Law '97), is a Michigan native, and he serves Michigan residents together with the firm's in house Michigan-licensed attorney. Each Michigan client receives a personal consultation on the use of their Arsenal Gun Trust for NFA firearms. Then our attorneys prepare all the documents ready for the client's signature and immediate use. Each client receives an extensive document package designed to help the client's loved ones comply with the law when they inherit the firearms in the trust.
