Guns are not like other property; the laws controlling their possession and conveyance are complex and contradictory and they represent an enormous potential for accidental felonies, both for trustees, beneficiaries, and their attorneys. Even though they may comprise a significant asset in the grantor’s estate, firearms should not be conveyed by traditional wills or trusts. And ignoring them may be malpractice. Drafting Firearm Trusts to address these hazards is a growing niche in Estate Planning practices.
This presentation provides an introduction and overview of Federal and State firearm laws as they relate to estate planning and probate practice, and provides guidance when dealing with this often overlooked area which is fraught with danger for the uninformed.
