How Do I Select a Gun Trust And Firearms Attorney In Texas ?

What Is A Gun Trust Texas TX

Alex Kincaid Gun Enthusiast Before choosing a gun trust or firearms attorney in Texas, clients should question their potential attorney about the attorney’s prior experience with gun laws.

At a minimum, they should ask the following questions:

 

1) Where did you learn about the gun laws?
2) Do you have any gun-related criminal law background?
3) Have you written any articles or taught gun law classes?
4) What estate or business gun-law related issues have you resolved for your former clients?

If your estate or business involves firearms in Texas, make sure your attorney is well-versed in both state and federal gun laws. After all, there are thousands of gun laws on the books, and without some prior experience, you should question the attorney’s ability to protect you. Remember, each attorney’s particular knowledge and experience that they can offer to their clients is different, and not all gun trusts are created equal.

Gun Trust In Texas For Firearms That Are Subject To The National Firearms Act

Alex Kincaid Gun Trust InformationGun owners in Texas who are considering adding an NFA firearm (firearms subject to the National Firearms Act) to their collection should consider creating a gun trust before they make the acquisition.

The most popular NFA firearms in Texas are suppressors, short-barreled rifles, short-barreled shotguns, and fully automatic firearms. The National Firearms Act was passed by Congress in 1934. The NFA imposed a special tax on NFA firearms, and restricts the possession and transfer of NFA firearms to the person who has paid the tax. If you are considering acquiring or building an NFA firearm, you need to know the laws that pertain to these special firearms. Readers are encouraged to read Alexandria Kincaid’s book, “Infringed” to more fully understand the laws, including the NFA, and avoid committing an accidental felony.

What Special Laws Apply to NFA Firearms In Texas ?

The National Firearms Act (NFA) regulates the possession, use, and transfer of several different types of firearms in Texas. These firearms are commonly referred to as “Title II” firearms and include machine guns, short-barreled rifles and shotguns, suppressors, destructive devices, and “any other weapons” (AOWs). State laws may also further restrict the possession and use of these weapons. In many states, it is legal to own and use
suppressors, destructive devices, and AOWs as long as the NFA regulations are followed.

Gun owners in Texas wishing to acquire Title II firearms can do so by registering the firearm in their own name or in the name of an entity. If you choose to acquire the NFA firearm in your own name, you must submit fingerprints, a photograph, pay a $200 application fee/tax, and obtain the signature of the Chief Law Enforcement Officer (CLEO) in the jurisdiction where you live. In some cities and counties, the CLEO signature is very hard, if not impossible, to obtain.

The Best Way To Own Title II Firearms In Texas

Even when you can obtain the CLEO signature, individual ownership is not the best way to own Title II firearms in Texas. Only the individual in whose name the firearm is registered will be entitled to possess the NFA firearms. Leaving these firearms accessible to other people living in your home can be a crime.

As a result of the drawbacks of individual ownership, combined with the CLEO non-participation in the application process, many gun owners in Texas have resorted to forming an entity to purchase and hold Title II firearms. There are several advantages to using an entity to purchase and hold NFA items:

• No fingerprints are required.
• No photographs are required.
• No CLEO signature is required.
• In contrast to individual ownership, multiple people may possess the firearms.

The question then becomes which type of entity is best to hold Title II firearms In Texas. The answer is usually a firearms trust

Business entities such as corporations and limited liability companies (LLCs) in Texas can be used to obtain Title IIAlex Kincaid Get Your Gun Trust firearms. The problem with these entities is that they all require fees and a public record with the state. You must pay an initial fee to form the entity and in many states, a yearly fee to maintain it. Further, these types of entities are designed to earn money rather than to hold, share, and distribute firearms.

Business entities in region~ rarely address what will happen to the firearm when the creator of the entity becomes incapacitated or dies. Despite these drawbacks, some gun owners choose to use a business entity due to the ability to obtain asset protection of the firearms with such an entity. When gun owners create an LLC to hold firearms, the LLC is still often combined with a gun trust, so the gun owner receives the best of both worlds: asset protection and estate planning combined.

Gun Trust In Texas Can Be Kept Private

In contrast, a trust does not require any fees with the state and can be kept private. Because trusts in Texas are primarily an estate-planning tool, they are designed to hold, share, and distribute assets. A proper gun trust will address what happens to the firearms when the creator of the trust becomes incapacitated or dies. While a person could use a free trust provided by a gun shop (which is the “unauthorized practice of law”) or downloads one from a discount online source, these products do not protect a person’s family and friends adequately.

A proper firearms trust is designed for owning, sharing, and eventually distributing firearms, ammunition, and accessories.

Texas, The state of Texas is considered to have some of the nation's most lenient gun laws. Public concerns over gun control in Texas have increased in recent years as Mexican drug cartels continue to commit violent crimes near the Texas border with Mexico. Texas Concealed Carry Gun Store

There are many in Texas that are pushing for even more lenient gun control as they feel that Texas citizens need to protect themselves as they have lost faith in the government in being able to provide even the basic protection as a result of the Mexican cartel’s recent incursions into US territory and have committed violent crimes on U.S. soil including murder.

In response to recent shooting in the country gun control proponents has set their sight on states such as Texas thinking that gun control is the answer. Texans have no intention or bowing to such unfounded pressure and Texas politician have had the courage to openly support firearms. In a recent quote: “Yet here in Texas, which has a long-cherished history of independence and an unshakeable pro-gun culture, talk of limits on weapons is met with resolute defiance"

Republican Gov. Rick Perry said that the effort by the "political left" and news media to exploit the Connecticut massacre to push for gun-control measures "disgusts me." State Rep. Jason Villalba, a Republican from Dallas, has proposed putting an armed "marshal" in every public school. Republican state Rep. Steve Toth, who represents an area north of Houston, has vowed to make it a felony to enforce federal gun bans within Texas' borders.

Two Texas school districts have adopted policies allowing teachers and faculty to carry guns on school grounds. Three districts allow guns in schools. Recently, The Texas Legislature adjourned its regular session on Memorial Day after passing fifteen pro-Second Amendment measures. This is more than any other state in the country.   

Clearly Texans and their elected officials understand that their proud history of guns going back over 200 years not only assures an individual’s right to self-defense, they seem to be a rare group of citizens in the country that understand the constitution and by their actions and words support the 2nd amendment. The Republic of Texas is a model for other states to follow. Learn about Texas and other Pro gun states on US Precision Defense.  

 

Texas, The Texas state constitution states; Every citizen shall have the right to keep and bear arms in the lawful defense of himself or the State; but the Legislature shall have power, by law, to regulate the wearing of arms, with a view to prevent crime.

From the very beginning of Texas statehood Texans have recognized its residents the right keep and bear arms, and to this very day is one of only a handful of states that have never wavered from this belief. In fact Texas is known for being probably the most proactive state in supporting the second amendment, and have had its laws copied by other states.

Recently the federal government has tried with great effort to force gun control measures on the states and Texas has been the single most proactive state in pushing back against the Federal Government and their disregard for the 2nd amendment.

Texas Supports the 2nd AmendmentRecently, as part of what has become dubbed "gun day" by supporters and opponents alike, The Texas House enthusiastically approved a bill, introduced by first-term, Tea Party Republican Rep. Steve Toth, which promises to bring tensions between the federal and state government to the boiling point if cleared.

The bill would shoot down within state borders any federal laws banning assault weapons or high-capacity magazines, or expansion of background checks for firearms owners. "There are 27 amendments in the Constitution but only one says `shall not be infringed,"' Toth said. "The Second Amendment is the amendment that keeps the people free."  The phrase “Don’t mess with Texas” is taking on new meaning.

As a result of The Texas Houses actions the democrats are furious and one Liberal Democratic representative rebutted: Rep. Gene Wu, took to Twitter to slam his Republican colleagues: "In case your head is too thick to understand: State law will not trump federal law." Even with this statement the State of Texas is ignoring the rants of the liberals and is staying the course in its protection of the second amendment, even when the federal government will not.

This one Texan sums it up pretty well how Texans think: US Rep. Steve Stockman, a Republican from Friendswood Texas, sent the following message to "all persecuted gun owners and unwanted manufacturers": Come to Texas!!! The state which believes the whole Bill of Rights should be followed, not just the "politically correct" parts. Your rights will not be infringed upon here, unlike many current local regimes.
