Why Should I Create a Gun Trust?
When creating a will and estate plan, many individuals wish to make plans for passing down their firearms to a family member or loved one. However, this is not always as simple as naming a beneficiary in a will. Rather, the gun owner may need to set up a gun trust.
A gun trust holds the firearm or firearms, and a trustee is named in the trust. A gun trust protects the assets in the trust, and the Grantor's and the beneficiaries' privacy.
NFA trusts specifically apply to Title II weapons, including machine guns, short-barreled shotguns, short-barreled rifles, silencers, large bore firearms and more, but any asset could be held by the trust.
Attorneys of Hayes & Wilson have significant experience helping clients set up NFA gun trusts. We help clients register and establish gun trusts, understand the complex state and federal gun laws that apply, and plan for future generations of firearm owners.
