Gun trusts are a specific type of trust and are used to hold weapons regulated by two federal laws: the National Firearms Act of 1934 and a revision of that law, Title II of the Gun Control Act of 1968. These trusts avoid certain federal transfer requirements and accomplish other estate planning and firearm usage goals.
