ATF Proposing Changes To NFA Gun Trusts
Looks like the administration is trying to go after NFA gun trusts:

Quote:The Obama administration is working to close a loophole in the nation’s gun laws that allows for some machine guns and sawed-off shotguns to be sold without the buyer submitting fingerprints or photographs.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is working on a new regulation that would require more background information when the weapons are sold to someone through a corporation or legal trust.
I've heard rumblings of this coming down.

You wouldn't be able to run as many people over with that car if it didn't drive as far. It should only have a 10 gallon fuel tank.

God forbid someone has a little freedom in this country.

Very little crime (if any) is committed with NFA items. God forbid we make the process more smooth for law abiding gun owners.

Not sure the administration is connected to this.....maybe they are. When I first saw this mentioned it sounded like somebody at the ATF proposed this. On the plus side this will eliminate CLEO signoff.
The law? The law is a human institution...

Toss in legal NFA items and it probably is zero.

There goes the chances of all those criminals using their lawfully registered NFA firearms to commit more crimes. Damn feds...always one step ahead of the criminals.Rolleyes
Welcome to ObamaNation part deuxUtg
We all have the FDA administration to thank for this, it's his signature at the bottom of that law..
I love how any part of a law that makes life easier for gun owners is automatically a "loophole."
I'm waititng for tptb to close that dangerous gun store loophole where a law abiding citizen can walk into a store, fill out a mountain of paperwork, undergo a few tbackground checks, fork over a shitton of money and walk out with a weapon.
Quote:Obama offers new gun control steps

WASHINGTON (AP) - Striving to take action where Congress would not, the Obama administration announced new steps Thursday on gun control, curbing the import of military surplus weapons and proposing to close a little-known loophole that lets felons and others circumvent background checks by registering guns to corporations.

Four months after a gun control drive collapsed spectacularly in the Senate, President Barack Obama added two more executive actions to a list of 23 steps the White House determined Obama could take on his own to reduce gun violence. With the political world focused on Mideast tensions and looming fiscal battles, the move signaled Obama's intent to show he hasn't lost sight of the cause he took up after 20 first graders and six adults were gunned down last year in an elementary school in Newtown, Conn.

One new policy will end a government practice that lets military weapons, sold or donated by the U.S. to allies, be reimported into the U.S. by private entities, where some may end up on the streets. The White House said the U.S. has approved 250,000 of those guns to be reimported since 2005; under the new policy, only museums and a few other entities like the government will be eligible to reimport military-grade firearms.

The Obama administration is also proposing a federal rule to stop those who would be ineligible to pass a background check from skirting the law by registering a gun to a corporation or trust. The new rule would require people associated with those entities, like beneficiaries and trustees, to undergo the same type of fingerprint-based background checks as individuals if they want to register guns.

Vice President Joe Biden, Obama's point-man on gun control after the Newtown tragedy thrust guns into the national spotlight, was set to unveil the new actions Thursday at the White House.

The event in the Roosevelt Room will also mark the ceremonial swearing-in for Todd Jones, whose confirmation to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives after six years of political wrangling to fill that position was another of Obama's post-Newtown priorities. A Senate deal to approve the president's pending nominations after Democrats threatened to change Senate rules cleared the way for Jones' confirmation last month.

Still out of reach for Obama were the steps that gun control advocates and the administration's own review say could most effectively combat gun violence in the U.S., like an assault weapons ban and fewer exceptions for background checks for individual sales. Only Congress can act on those fronts.

Although Obama and Biden have said the fight is not over, there is scant evidence that there is more support for gun control legislation than there was in April, when efforts died in the Senate amid staunch opposition from the National Rifle Association and most Republican senators.

"Sooner or later, we are going to get this right," Obama said that day in the White House Rose Garden, with the families of Newtown victims and former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords - herself a victim of a gunman - at his side. "The memories of these children demand it, and so do the American people," the president said at the time.
