They've been talking about removing the CLEO sign-off requirement for a while. People have been using trusts and other ways to bypass the CLEO for a long time. To me, it looks like they are making it harder to get NFA items using a trust or corp by now requiring fingerprints/photos of named "responsible persons." I guess they are trying to move people away from trusts/corps in the hopes that they will just register it as an individual. Being in NC, I had to get my CLEO to sign even if I had a trust, so I went the individual route when I bought my M10. I'm thinking about SBRing everything else in the safe just so I don't have to deal with any stupid new AWB that may appear out of thin air...
