In September of 2013, the ATF proposed a rule change called Regulation 41P for way that gun trusts and other entities would be allowed to purchase or transfer items such as suppressors, short barreled rifles, and fully automatic weaponry. Once the regulation is put into place trusts and other entities will be required to submit fingerprints, photographs, background checks, and get a sign off from the chief law enforcement office (CLEO) in their area. When these rules are changed, a comment period is opened so that the general public can voice its concerns about the proposed rule change. The American Suppressor Association and other groups organized the largest comment turn out for any federal rule change with a historic 9,479 comments entered. By law the ATF has to respond to all of these comments in writing before the final decision on the rule can be made. The comment period for 41P ended in December 2013. The ATF has indicated that it is coming close to answering all of the comments and could likely reach a final decision as early as May 2015. Once the final decision is reached a 60 day grace period would take place to allow for legal challenges and Congressional review.
Once this rule passes, the benefits and streamlined purchasing afforded to gun trusts will be removed and replaced with more regulation and hassle.
