Approval must first be given by the ATF in order to legally own a Title II weapon:
Short Barrel Rifles (SBR)
Short Barrel Shotguns (SBS)
Fully Automatic Firearms
A gun trust can help streamline the process of obtaining these firearms by speeding up the ATF approval process and bypassing some of the transfer requirements. Using a trust can be especially helpful in situations where you area’s Chief Law Enforcement Officer is unwilling to sign the ATF Form 4 or Form 1 required for transfer.
