The 2nd part of Obama's new administrative gun laws ban the use of the "Trust". He has ordered the BATFE to close this practice? I would check this out very close.

Is that a done deal or something going up for vote?

And, more importantly, are already existing trusts grandfathered?

Suppressors/silencers are legal. Just pay the BATFE $200 for a tax stamp to own one. I have one for my AR-15.

It has only been proposed at this time. I have my new SBR lower paperwork already turned in. We have a trust setup for all of our suppressors, SBR, and AOW guns.

I would expect items already owned or with paperwork submitted would be grandfathered in. Any new applications, even under the same trust, would probably have to follow the new process/requirements.

Unless Obozo gets his new anti-trust law passed, getting a trust is the easiest way to obtain Class 3 weapons. No CLEO signoff or fingerprinting like on a standard individual purchase. Obozo,wants to change the way trust are done with the BATFE,and also make everyone/thing in the trust have a CLEO signoff,and also fingerprints.

I paid $450 for my trust,but have seen them for $350. It's a very simple process,and I did it over the phone with a lawyer in Houston,and then he Emailed me the trust in pdf file,and I printed it off. I can also make any changes to the trustees whenever I want,just by adding or deleting people in my trust.

Purchasing suppressors is a simple process with a trust at this time.Just go to your local dealer,and pay for the suppressor. I then write down the serial# of the item,add it to the amendment sheet of the trust,give a copy of the trust and a $200 check for the BATFE to the dealer,and he sends all of his/my paperwork to the BATFE.
Your waiting time doesn't start until the BATFE cashes your check,but once you receive the Tax stamp,then you can pick up the item at the dealer.
