BamaCarry Inc and NFA Gun Trust


Have you been thinking about getting a “Gun Trust” but thought it to expensive or hard to do? Here’s where you can get it done for $99 and get a membership to BamaCarry, INC, the No Compromise gun rights group in Alabama. It’s really easy! This should answer all your questions.

FAQ on Gun Trust and BamaCarry membership

What is a gun trust?

By design, a trust is estate planning. It is also a legal entity, and legal entities can own firearms, including those regulated by the National Firearms Act. Those include machine guns (registered before May 19, 1986), short barreled rifles, short barreled shotguns and destructive devices.

How can BamaCarry offer a gun trust?
BamaCarry has partnered with a well known gun trust lawyer. The trust is prepared by a lawyer, not BamaCarry. David Goldman’s firm is preparing the trust.

Does the trust end with my BamaCarry membership?
No your trust lasts a lifetime. The membership package is how the lawyer wished the trust be packaged.

What if I am already a BamaCarry member?
If you are already a member, then another year will be added to your membership.

Why should I buy a gun trust?
You should only by a gun trust if you wish to own NFA items. Ownership through a trust is easier and more flexible than as an individual

What are the advantages of NFA ownership through a trust?
1. Faster application approvals
2. Co Trustees can be in possession of the items without you being present.
3. Certain applications (Form 1) are available for entities to file online, cutting the wait time by months.
4. No need for CLEO signatures of approval, fingerprints or photographs.
The only advantage to owning NFA firearms as an individual is the initial fee of the trust. BamaCarry has made that a non issue by saving you 200$.

What additional fees are involved?
The trust does have to be notarized, so if your notary charges a fee, then that is additional. Other than that, the trust is a one time fee.

Do I have to file this trust at the courthouse or anywhere else?
No. This trust does not have to be filed. It does have to be included in every application to the ATF.

Does the trust do away with the tax stamp?
No, a tax stamp is still needed for every NFA transfer. This is your proof of ‘tax paid’. There is no way around the tax stamp, unless you are a class 3 dealer.

What are Eforms?
Eforms are forms online that only legal entities can use. This is because individuals must submit fingerprints, photographs and a CLEO signature on their applications.
Eforms are currently only for Form 1s. That is to ‘make’ an NFA item. Form 4s to ‘buy’ an NFA item are not online at this time.
The wait time on an Eform 1, is currently running 35 days.

What do I need to buy this gun trust?
The trust/membership package is 99$
You need to know who you want as co trustees (3), and who you want as your beneficiaries. You will also designate a ‘successor trustee’ who will ensure that the items are disposed of properly to your beneficiaries.

What happens if I want to change my trust?
This trust is a “Revocable Living Trust”.
That means it can be changed at anytime by executing an amendment, and notarizing it. This is something that you can do yourself or with the help of a lawyer.

Does this trust work?
It works time and time again. David Goldman, the lawyer preparing the trust, has been doing this for years. He is not one of the ‘recent’ gun trust lawyers to pop up. His firm has partnered with attorneys in other states and this trust is tailored to the requirements of your respective state. Before BamaCarry partnered with this lawyer, this same trust was used several times over by one of our advisory board members.

Amy Parrish was the featured speaker at the Shelby County Quarterly Meeting.
The Shelby County group has partnered with AllGunTalk to auction firearms with the proceeds going to the BamaCarry Legal Fund.

It is always nice to hear from members of BamaCarry. Amy Parrish was the featured speaker at the quarterly meeting of the Shelby County group. The meeting was held at Hoover Tactical Firearms in Hoover Alabama.

Mrs.Parrish was a wealth of information as she told how she became involved in BamaCarry and first became concerned about her own personal defense. She has since became a very vocal advocate for BamaCarry as well as a spokesperson for women who train and carry firearms. She has been directly responsible for numerous ladies learning to handle a firearm and become responsible gun owners.

Hope you enjoy the video.

“Give me liberty or give me death!”

–Patrick Henry, speech, Virginia Convention, March 23, 1775


The older I get the more aware that I am that each 4th of July is seemingly less patriotic than the year before. It has become as Christmas has. Just another commercial day with less and less of the true meaning of the day expressed. As I watch my grandkids growing up I am acutely aware that they might be the last generation to understand the price our forefathers paid for the freedoms we have enjoyed up until now. The following words have more meaning for me today than they ever have. Please read them with me today and my prayer is the fire of patriots will fill our hearts with determination to never compromise the truth, never back down from those that would destroy the truth and never forget the price that was paid.

When reading the Declaration, it is worth keeping in mind two very important facts. The Declaration constituted high treason against the Crown and every person who signed it would be executed as traitors should they be caught by the British. Second, the Declaration was considered to be a legal document by which the revolutionaries justified their actions, and explained why they were not truly traitors. It represented, as it were, a literal indictment of the Crown and Parliament, in the very same way that criminals are now publicly indicted for their alleged crimes by grand juries representing “the People.”

But to justify a revolution, it was not thought to be enough that officials of the government of England, the Parliament, or even the sovereign himself had violated the rights of the people. No government is perfect; all governments violate rights. This was well known. So our forefathers had to allege more than mere violations of rights. They had to allege nothing short of a criminal conspiracy to violate their rights systematically. Hence, the famous reference to “a long train of abuses and usurpations”. In some cases, these specific complaints account for provisions eventually included in the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

56 Patriots signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well it could cost them their lives, their families and literally everything they owned. And for some it did. Who knows this might well be the last 4th we’ll celebrate as a totally free people. It might well cost us in the near future. 

Franklin D. Roosevelt said, “In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.”

Happy 4th to all of our BamaCarry members and friends.
