As our viewers are aware, Firearms Industry Consulting Group (FICG), a division of Prince Law Offices, P.C., has been spearheading the attack against ATF’s most recent proposal, ATF 41P. We were the first to blog about the devastating effects of ATF 41P. We also declared Tuesday, September 3, 2013, the NFA Day of Reckoning, where we provided sample letters for individuals, Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs) and CLEOs to submit, which was extremely successful. And these are just a few of the numerous articles that we’ve published, let alone the time we’ve spent defending the industry against ATF 41P.
Unfortunately, our resources aren’t unlimited and we are requesting financial assistance from the industry. Experts are required to debunk ATF’s assertions and conclusions. A monumental amount of time is required to review all filed comments and file a proper comment, with supportive evidence, including affidavits and expert reports. We cannot do this alone and hence, we are requesting your assistance.
We only have one opportunity to attack ATF 41P. Any issue not properly raised and supported in the comments is waived. Therefore, it is imperative that we ensure that we have sufficient funding to raise all issues (or as many as possible) with supportive evidence.
Anyone wishing to donate to our initiative to invalidate ATF 41P can either mail donations to Prince Law Offices, P.C., 646 Lenape Rd, Bechtelsville, PA 19505 or call our office at 888-313-0416. Simply include a note or inform that staff that you are donating in relation to ATF 41P. Also, if you wish to donate using Paypal, you can use our Paypal address of email@example.com.

With our 2nd Amendment rights being attacked at both the Federal and State level, and the ATF (Burea of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives) trying to close down FFLs (Federal Firearms Licensees) for minor infractions while making FFLs the scapegoat when the ATF's records are inaccurate, I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am one of only a handful of attorneys across the US that practices in the niche area of law known as firearms law. I decided to concentrate my legal practice on firearms law not only because I am a shooter and firearms enthusiast, but also to ensure that our inalienable Right to Keep and Bear Arms is never encroached upon.
I handle cases at the Federal and State level for both FFLs and individuals. At the federal and state levels for individuals, I actively defend the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution and Section 21 of the PA Constitution, as well as, help individuals with:
- License to Carry Firearms Denials;
- Challenges to Erroneous PICS Denials;
- Relief from Firearms Disabilities;
- Estate Planning Advice;
- Gun/NFA Trusts; and
- 42 USC 1983 Actions for Deprivation of Civil Rights
At both the state and federal levels, I represent FFLs and SOTs throughout Pennsylvania and the US regarding:
- ATF Compliance Inspections;
- Warning Letters and Hearings;
- FFL Revocations;
- Corporate Structure Advice
- Indoor/Outdoor Range Implementation; and
- Forfeiture Proceedings
In following my love for firearms and firearms law, I have taught several Continuing Legal Education (CLE) seminars on Firearms in Estates and Trusts and Firearms Law 101 for several Bar Associations, including Berks, Cumberland, and Dauphin Counties. I also planned and taught several Firearms in Estates CLE classes for the Pennsylvania Bar Institute (PBI).
While at Widener Law School, I was a member of the Widener Law Journal. I wrote an article on the Inaccuracy of the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record (NFRTR). I also had an article published on Fee Disputes in Workers Compensation cases in the Widener Law Journal, Volume 18, No. 2.
You can often find me posting on several internet forums, including Subguns, Uzitalk, AR15, and PAFOA. I also hold PA Firearms Law classes for local ranges to inform the public on the firearm laws of the Commonwealth.
Following in my father's footsteps, I am also a Board member for the Pottstown Police Athletic League (PAL).

Put up a paypal donate button…i know they are anti gun but it makes donating REALLY easy.
PayPal charges you, but the donation levels you get more than justify the money you don’t miss.
I can’t even begin to describe how frustrating this whole fiasco is to me. Because the Obama administration didn’t get their way with gun control, they are acting like little children and trying to make it as difficult as possible for regular citizens to acquire suppressors. It’s insanity. In my jurisdiction, the CLEOs will NOT sign off on any NFA item which means that unless I move to another county with a 2A friendly Sheriff, I will be essentially prohibited from acquiring any new NFA items. This is crazy!
There must be something the legal community can do about this, right? Is there some sort of legal remedy to stop the ATF from doing this?
