Legally Protect Your Firearms NOW With a Gun Trust
A gun trust in Texas is a unique legal tool in compliance with the National Firearms Act that offers legal protection and greater flexibility for both Title 1 and Title 2 gun owners.
Purchase The Weapons You Want
A gun trust allows you to legally purchase and own a Title II Firearm sold by Class 3 dealers as well as Title 1 firearms with minimal headaches and red-tape.
Protect Your Valuable Weapons For Your Heirs
By placing your firearms in trust, you can ensure that your restricted weapons will stay protected and legally transfer to your heirs without the fear of confiscation, destruction, huge taxes or forced sale by the government.
Enjoy Your Weapons Without Fear of Criminal Liability for Yourself or Loved Ones
A gun trust protects you and your loved ones from unintentional criminal liability under federal and state laws that restrict the transport, possession and sale of firearms. By naming trustees, you can legally give authority to people you trust to handle your weapons without government involvement or fear of punishment.
Save Money and Expedite the Purchase or Transfer of Restricted Firearms
With a gun trust in place, you won’t have to worry about the Chief Law Enforcement Officer refusing to sign your paperwork because it will bypass this process completely. Transfers are also much faster for weapons held in trust. Fees are also significantly lower with a gun trust in Texas.
Protect Your Guns From Future Legislation
Placing your firearms in trust now will protect them from sweeping gun control legislation tomorrow. The provisions in a gun trust can be amended to comply with future laws, keeping your valuable weapons safe and legal. Otherwise, if your weapons are deemed illegal in the future, you will likely lose the opportunity to create a gun trust.
Shield Your Firearms From Future Creditors or Nursing Homes
A gun trust keeps your firearms out of the reach of creditors or nursing homes if you run into trouble or need long-term care assistance in the future. A valuable gun collection may also jeopardize your ability to qualify for Medicaid benefits, whereas a Texas gun trust keeps the assets legally out of your name so that you can get the resources and benefits you need. A gun trust also offers protection and keeps your firearms safe in the event of a divorce, bankruptcy or lawsuits….or in the event your heirs face similar issues when they become owners.
Ensure Your Guns Are Handled Responsibly and In A Manner You Want
A Texas gun trust conveys the serious nature of gun ownership by allowing you to specify when your beneficiaries can receive your firearms and under what circumstances (i.e. At age 21, if proven responsible enough to handle them). It also allows you to lay out instructions for caring and transferring your firearms properly to preserve their value in the event of your death of incapacity.
Buyer Beware! Not All Gun Trusts in Texas Are The Same!
The majority of gun trusts found online or in gun stores are ticking time bombs for gun owners. They fail to take into account the complex laws of both the state and federal government, offer minimal protection for transfers and cause the gun owner to commit felonies punishable by fines and jail time because the trusts are often invalid for “technical reasons” beyond the gun owner’s knowledge.
