Are you interested in owning or using Class III Firearms including machine guns, short barreled shotguns, and silencers? The experienced and passionate firearm attorneys at Wright & Schulte, LLC are committed to protecting American’s Second Amendment right to Keep and Bear Arms.
Nationally, this means every American citizen has the right to own rifles, handguns, and shotguns when in compliance with state and national regulations including Class III. It also allows the sale and use of Class III firearms regulated by the National Firearms Act (NFA). These firearms include:
- Destructive Devices (DD)
- Short Barreled Rifles (SBR)
- Machine Guns
- Short Barreled Shotguns (SBS)
- And any other firearm (AOW)
Class III firearms require compliance with the NFA and must be purchased through a licensed Class III Dealer. Class III firearms and other firearms may be owned as a trust, a corporation, or an individual. For the safety and legal protection of Class III gun owners, Class III firearm owners should establish a NFA Gun Trust. This will allow you to own short-barrel rifles, automatic firearms, silencers, and the other items listed above while allowing others to use and possess these items as well. Adding co-trustees, enables use of NFA items among trustees.
A gun trust is a necessary instrument and estate planning tool for any individual wishing to own NFA class II or III items. Without properly preparing for distribution after death, transfer of these highly-regulated items can become complicated and costly. To avoid expensive and lengthy probate proceedings, gun trusts are drafted to pass these items to specific individuals listed in the trust.
