I don't apologize for my position, and neither should you. It is a constitutionally protected right in this country to possess and own firearms. This has been obvious to everyone from the beginning of the United States of America until the District of Columbia thought otherwise. Mr. Heller disagreed, and his case went all the way up to the United States Supreme Court. DC v. Heller was decided in 2008 (554 U.S. 570). Then, in 2008 which was only 217 years after adoption, the Second Amendment was declared, affirmatively, to protect an individual's right to keep and bear Arms - something you and I already knew and practiced.
However, just because it is a constitutional right, and a fundamental one at that, does not mean that the government won't try to limit it. They have, and do, and continue to limit this right for a multitude of reasons. This is why it is essential to have me take a look at your situation, and get started with your Second Amendment defense.
It is also why it is essential to have me further protect your Second Amendment right with an NFA trust. Beginning July of this year, Rule 41F is effective: this compelled some changes to Title 2/Class 3 firearms transfers. The upside is that now only "notification" to the Chief Law Enforcement Officer ("CLEO") is required.
"Responsible Persons" ("RPs") can submit the new form, 5320.23, with his/her/their fingerprints and passport'ish photo(s) to the ATF. The new form eliminates the old Form 1 and Form 4, and incorporates Form 4473. Form 5320.23 is what gets sent to the CLEO as "notification" when their is a transaction. Certified Mail comes to mind as a good way to "submit" the form so that if the Federal government has questions about it, you've got the proof you notified the CLEO.
There's more here, so get me on the phone, and set an appointment to come in a get your NFA trust off the ground. All that said to say an NFA trust is my recommendation - especially in light of the election in the coming weeks.
