Fix My Gun Trust

On April 10, 2015, at the NRA Convention in Nashville, Tennessee, ATF NFA Branch attorney Bill Ryan expressed his opinion that invalid fill-in-the-blank gun trusts were the largest contributor to the backlog of unapproved NFA applications that caused wait times to reach one year or more as recently as one year ago.

The number of invalid trusts cause the NFA examiners to waste time reviewing applications, only to send the applicant a rejection letter, then later review another corrected filing at a later time.

Mr. Ryan also singled out a D.I.Y. template marketed by a major manufacturer of NFA firearms as one of the worst examples of a fill-in-the-blank gun trust, stating that it has numerous problems and even directs the trustee to violate the NFA.

If your current documents have resulted in a rejection from the NFA Branch or you’re just not satisfied that there were done right – EVEN IF YOU’VE ALREADY TRANSFERRED NFA WEAPONS INTO IT – you can use to “restate” your trust.  We’ll give your 2A Trust the same name as your existing trust, but it will provide the language and instructions that the ATF is looking for, so you won’t have the problems expressed by the NFA Branch attorney.

Please don’t hesitate to email us if you have questions about restating your gun trust.
