The potential benefits provided by a gun trust include the ability to protect against the accidental commission of a felony when storing or allowing others to use restricted firearms, simplification in acquisition of regulated firearms, probate avoidance, and enhanced privacy.
There are approximately 80 million gun owners in America with nearly half of all U.S. households owning at least one firearm. With over 20,000 gun related laws in the United States today, owning and eventually passing on a firearm as a legacy must be done with careful planning and consideration. Most federal and state gun laws carry stiff penalties on the improper possession or transfer of a firearm. If not done properly, the seemingly innocent transfer of a firearm to an heir could result in a fine up to $250,000 and up to 10 years in prison. Having a gun trust in place sets forth the rules for owning and transferring firearm in a way that will ensure you or your loved ones don’t end up inadvertently committing a felony and paying a catastrophic price!
