No need to make a trust for your NFA weapon anymore; the chief, sheriff, etc.,
has only 15 days receive and process your NFA paperwork by law.:banana: They can
only deny with just cause.:dude:

IC 35-47-8.5-2
Mandatory issuance of certification by chief law enforcement
officer; exceptions
Sec. 2. (a) If the certification of a chief law enforcement officer
is required by federal law for the transfer or manufacture of an NFA
firearm, the chief law enforcement officer shall issue the certification
not later than fifteen (15) days after receipt of a completed request
for certification, unless the applicant is:
(1) prohibited by law from receiving or possessing a firearm; or
(2) the subject of a proceeding that could result in the applicant
being prohibited by law from receiving or possessing a firearm.
(b) A chief law enforcement officer may deny a request for
certification only:
(1) because the request for certification is not complete; or
(2) for a reason described in subsection (a)(1) or (a)(2).
A chief law enforcement officer may not deny a request for
certification based on a generalized objection to private persons or
entities manufacturing, transferring, or receiving a firearm or an NFA
firearm if the possession of the firearm or NFA firearm is not
otherwise prohibited by law.
(c) If the chief law enforcement officer denies a request for
certification under this section, the chief law enforcement officer
Indiana Code 2016
shall provide the applicant with a written notification of the denial
and the reason for the denial. If the chief law enforcement officer
denies a request for certification because the request is not complete,
the chief law enforcement officer shall set forth, in detail, why the
request is not complete. An applicant whose request for certification
is denied because it is not complete may reapply or amend the
existing request by supplying the required information.
