Gun Trusts: What They Are and How They Work
Guns are a part of the legacy that many Arkansans leave behind. Unfortunately, transferring the ownership of your firearms without the help of a gun trust can be a difficult and complicated process at the time of your death or incapacity. In today’s world, there are many gun ownership restrictions. These laws are routinely updated at both the state and federal levels.
What Does the Law Say?
There is no universally accepted law concerning gun ownership across the United States. This means that the laws and requirements concerning gun ownership can differ by state. For example, while it may be perfectly legal for you to own a specific type of firearm according to both federal and state laws, it may not be legal to pass that firearm down to your child if they live in a state where that specific type of gun is illegal to own. McClelland Law Firm, P.A. ensures you pass down your firearms legally in the state of Arkansas.
Arkansas Gun Trusts Are a Great Option.
It’s important to know that a gun owner has options. A gun trust is an agreement created to hold ownership of various firearms or other weapons. A gun trust can also pose a benefit if you own or plan on legally acquiring Class 3 Firearms (such as silencers, short-barrel rifles or shotguns, machine guns, etc.).
When you include a gun trust in your estate plan, you can achieve your goals regardless of the different rules, laws, or ordinances that may govern you or your beneficiary. A gun trust can be vital to maintaining your family’s legacy.
