A Jacksonville attorney is paving the way for purchases of restricted weapons such as machine guns, short-barreled rifles, and silencers. They’re legal in Florida, but only with direct clearance from an area’s chief law enforcement officer. Attorney David Goldman figured out a way to allow gun buyers purchase fully automatic weapons without a judge or sheriff’s permission.
Goldman said, “In our area of the country and many areas, law enforcement officers are refusing to determine whether it would be appropriate for you to have these items or not.”
The National Firearms Act requires special permission for “an individual” to acquire those restricted weapons, but not a corporation or a trust.
So Goldman was the first to create “gun trusts” which allow groups of people to purchase a weapon. “There were people using trusts for this purpose. But they never rewrote the trust to deal with firearms,” said Goldman.
