....least a dozen situations for people where I have helped advise, handle or place NFA when the registrant has died, been incapcitated, been accused of or in court proceedings for a variety of crimes, as well as convicted of of crimes. The deaths of registrants and domestic abuse cases are the majority of them along with felony convictions for drug possession and receiving stolen property valued at over $1000. With ATFís assistence in some of these events, secure storage of the NFA was arranged with a responsible party having sole access, sometimes a person with POA, a lawyer or exector, etc, etc until the legal status or the registrant was determined or the estate was ready to sell the NFA or settled. As an 07/02 with a long history with ATF, and WITH their agreement, I have taken temporary possession and provided secure storage of NFA for short periods of time for a number of registrants who were convicted of domestic abuse or died, and helped the registrantís family or estate prepare the forms for transfer of the NFA out of the name of the deceased or convicted. In several cases, the persons convicted of domestic abuse transferred the NFA to me. The registrant of record can still be the legal owner of the NFA while being legally prohibited from actual possession of the NFA. A convicted felon does not lose his rights to own NFA that he legally purchased and possessed prior to his felony conviction, but only to have any NFA in his possession. ATF has no authority over property.
