Gun Trusts?  In Idaho, Who Needs Them?

Gun Trusts?  In Idaho, Who Needs Them?

Gun trusts are a very good idea for a few gun owners.

For most people who own firearms, they are not necessary.

Here’s the dividing line:  People who own firearms that are subject to special federal registrations and restrictions, a gun trust is needed.

But most people who own weapons do not own any of those requiring such federal registration.

Here are the types of firearms & materials that the federal government controls:

  • Sawed-off rifles and shotguns
  • Full automatic weapons (multiple shots fired by a single trigger pull)
  • Explosive devices and materials
  • Silencer/Suppressors.


That’s it.  Everyone else can relax.  No gun trust required.
