Bechtelsville, PA.— Firearms Industry Consulting Group® (FICG®), a division of Prince Law Offices, P.C., has started www.FightATF41p.com in order to draw awareness to the seeming imminence of ATF’s implementation of ATF 41P and to raise money to fund litigation seeking to overturn any final rule promulgated by ATF.
FICG® spearheaded the opposition to ATF 41P during the rule making process. FICG® first declared September 3, 2013 as NFA Day of Reckoning which was a success. Shortly thereafter, Americans Opposed to ATF 41P was started.
Two comments were filed by FICG® during the rule making process. FICG’s® initial comment was the largest and most comprehensive in the docket, exceeding 500 pages. The supplemental comment was an additional 60+ pages. Attorney David Goldman of www.guntrustlawer.com retained FICG® to draft a comment to be filed on his behalf. During the comment period, FICG® published almost three dozen blog articles on ATF 41P, the comment period, and ATF’s actions post-comment period.
ATF 41P’s proposed rule sought to designate any person who could control a legal entity (trust, corporation, LLC, partnership, etc.) as a responsible person and those responsible persons would be required to submit fingerprints, photographs, and obtain the Chief Law Enforcement Officer (CLEO) signature with any application submitted to the National Firearms Act (NFA) Branch. As many CLEOs refuse to sign applications, even with state legislatures passing “shall sign” legislation, ATF 41Ps implementation, if consistent with the proposed rule, would result in a de facto ban on NFA firearms for individuals in those areas.
Litigating a case against the United States Government is complex and requires competent counsel, who are versed in Administrative Law. FICG’s® attorneys dedicate, concentrate and focus their practice around the Second Amendment. Additionally, Attorney Tom Odom worked for ten years in the District of Columbia handling administrative and regulatory matters, until becoming a Law Professor, where he taught Administrative and Constitutional Law and published three books on federal constitutional law.
FICG® is currently reaching out to industry members to help bring the fight to ATF.
Will you join with us to bring the Fight to ATF? Together, we can show ATF that we will not tolerate its overreach and violations of the U.S. Constitution and Administrative Law.
