Gun Trusts: Inheriting Firearms

The NYT has this interesting article about gun trusts. A gun trust allows an individual to buy or give certain firearms or paraphernalia  to the next generation. Gun trusts aren’t widely used for most common firearms (antiques, pistols, revolvers, rifles, or shotguns), but are a useful tool for more exotic firearms and accessories (machine guns, silencers, and other items). As the article notes, they’re a perfectly legal, if mostly unknown, way to buy, own, or pass on firearms.
