The Guns of U.S. Presidents

NC NFA Gun TrustTheodore Roosevelt carried concealed pistols and almost never went anywhere unarmed. No matter what your current political affiliation is these days, it is safe to say that when it comes to U.S. presidents, firearms and the public’s positive perception of their use—we miss “the good old days.”

In this, an election year, the candidates’ positions on Second Amendment issues are being debated at many levels. New Executive Orders and legislation have placed the White House at the center of the never-ending discussion on a citizen’s Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

However, it wasn’t that long ago when firearms were not only welcome in the executive mansion, but at least eight of our Chief Executives* were proud of their NRA Life member status. One Commander in Chief, Ulysses S. Grant, even served as President of the NRA following his tenure in the White House.

Do You Need an Attorney for an NFA Gun Trust in North Carolina?

North Carolina NFA Gun Trust

ATF 41F changes go into effect on July 13th. Why not get your existing trust proofread and reviewed? The new changes will significantly alter the way that individual members of NFA gun trusts operate with regard to possessing NFA items. Contact North Carolina Gun Trust to obtain your NFA Trust before the deadline!

Is an attorney necessary to draft an NFA gun trust in North Carolina? When the ATF approves your transfer application, they are not declaring your trust legally valid. In fact, if a gun owner or his heirs later discover a Dealer or DIY trust was never properly created or invalid, there could be penalties for unlawful possession of an NFA item. Weigh the pros and cons:

Grass Roots North Carolina: North Carolina Attorney General Candidate Buck Newton Supports Gun Rights!

NC NFA Gun TrustBuck Newton, Republican candidate for North Carolina Attorney General, has consistently supported gun rights in the NC Senate. Jim O’Neill, one of his primary opponents, as recently as last Friday has spoken out against them …

On Friday, Senator E.S. (Buck) Newton (R-11 – Johnston, Nash, Wilson, GRNC ****) argued gun rights with his Republican primary opponent for NC Attorney General, Jim O’Neill. As the discussion developed, it became clear that O’Neill has an entirely different notion of the definition of “infringed” than the rest of us do.

O’Neill’s Recipe for More Gun Control
It has been reported that, at the Republican Council of State Forum, O’Neill attacked Newton for supporting HB 562, last year’s pro-gun legislation, which held the line on the freedom of action and commerce among law-abiding citizens. Apparently, O’Neill wishes for peaceful, unassuming gun owners be entangled in yet more red tape as they conduct their private affairs. If O’Neill had his way, a simple act like a father gifting a handgun to his son or daughter would be a prosecutable offense. This is clearly not a pro-gun freedom stance. It’s not even a pro-Republican stance.

Your North Carolina Gun Trust: What You May Not Know and Why Getting it Done Right is Absolutely Crucial!

Saving a Few Bucks Can Cost a Fortune - Do-It-Yourself or DIY gun trusts, copying a trust agreement or discount NFA trusts may put yourself and loved ones in enormous jeopardy. In a worst case scenario, you could be arrested and charged with illegal possession of Title II firearms. Defects in bargain NFA trusts can also be costly- fines up to $250,000 per violation and imprisonment up to 10 years. Last but not least, you become a felon and suffer forfeiture of all your firearms. Why chance it? A highly experienced and specialized North Carolina NFA Trust attorney is imperative.
CLEO Sign Off Not Required – The ATF requirement that individuals obtain the signature of the Chief Law Enforcement Officer (CLEO) of the city in which you live, on Form 4, Machine gun/suppressor transfer documents, does not apply to gun trusts. No CLEO signature is required on ATF Form 4 transfers to a gun trust. Many Police Chiefs and Sheriffs (CLEOs) now refuse to sign. ATF Form 4 transfer forms making acquisition of Title II items difficult. The use of a gun trust to acquire Title II items solves this problem..
No Fingerprint Cards Required – The ATF requirement that an individual supply two sets of fingerprint cards with every Form 4 transfer does not apply to transfers to a gun trust.
No Photographs Required – The ATF requirement that an individual supply two photographs with every Form 4 transfer does not apply to transfers to a gun trust.
Continuity, Breadth and Mutuality of Possession – A properly drafted gun trust can allow various persons to possess and use NFA Title II firearms owned by the trust. Several trustees with authority to possess the trust’s NFA Title II weapons can be designated. ATF regulations for individuals limit the possession of NFA Title II firearms to the registered owner only. Gun trusts can be drafted to allow various persons to use the trust’s NFA firearms over the years without the need to transfer them upon the death or incapacity of a trustee or beneficiary of the trust. Family members or friends can be designated as authorized “users” of trust Title II firearms. Nevertheless, when the trust terminates, its property must be distributed to the beneficiaries and a transfer tax paid on each NFA item.
Confidentiality – When a gun trust purchases a Title II firearm, it must submit a copy of the trust to the ATF with the Form 4. The NFA gun trust is otherwise confidential. It is not filed of record and, other than NFA firearms purchased by the trust which must be registered with the ATF, its assets are confidential and need not be disclosed.
