A new concept in Estate planning is creating a trust to protect the families firearms. For the past few years the public has been using NFA Gun Trusts for the purchase and protection of Title II firearms that are restricted by the NFA. Most gun enthusiast expect there to be a renewed ban on Assault Weapons that becomes permanent. To protect your families assault weapons, you might consider a new twist to the firearms trust – the Assault Weapons Trust. It might be a good idea to transfer your Assault Weapons into a Assault Weapons Trust before there is a ban on future transfers of these firearms.
