Gun Trust Rules
Though most people who own firearms do not need a gun trust, a few do.
The ones that do are the ones that own federally-controlled weapons and materials. Those are:
- Sawed-off shotguns (barrel shorter than 18″) and sawed-off rifles (barrel shorter than 16″) or with an overall weapon length of either being less than 26″
- Fullly-automatic firearms (multiple rounds with single trigger pull)
- Explosive materials such as hand grenades or dynamite
- Silencers and suppressors for firearms.
For folks that have any of these firearms or materials, a Gun Trust is an important part of an estate plan.
For those who don’t – those who only have garden variety firearms – a Gun Trust is generally not required.
