The Arsenal Gun Trust™ is
A Legal Compliance System - protecting your right to own guns
A Risk Management Tool - protecting those handling your guns
An Estate Plan - protecting those who inherit your guns
Comply with Gun Laws
The National Firearms Act (NFA) regulates the ownership of short-barreled rifles and shotguns, vintage machine guns, and silencers, yet the possibility to own NFA-regulated guns can vary in different cities and counties. This is because your local Chief Law Enforcement Officer (CLEO) may personally decide whether to sign the forms required by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) to own these firearms.
Fortunately the law and well-established BATFE policies offer you an alternative. Rather than applying to your local CLEO to own NFA guns as an individual, you may instead apply directly to BATFE by using a legal entity (without the CLEO's signature, fingerprinting, or mug shot).
The Arsenal Gun Trust™ is the legal entity of choice for NFA gun ownership. The Arsenal Attorneys™ designed this solution to exceed state law requirements for revocable trusts and federal requirements for NFA gun ownership. Moreover it protects others who may handle or inherit your guns.
Manage Risks of handling NFA Guns
If another person has just the possibility of handling your guns outside your presence, you could find yourself in violation of the NFA. Consider these examples:
- Your spouse knows where the key to your gun cabinet is hidden.
- During lunch after target shooting with a friend you leave your NFA guns in his car.
- While hunting you leave your NFA guns in your parents' cabin.
- A cousin stores your NFA guns during your military deployment.
All of these situations run the risk of violating the National Firearms Act. The maximum penalties include:
- $250,000 in fines
- 10 years in jail
- Confiscation of your guns
The Arsenal Gun Trust™ is your risk management solution for these situations. Others named as your co-trustees may lawfully handle your NFA firearms, whether in an emergency or for your convenience.
Estate Planning for All Firearms
The most over-looked aspect of gun safety is estate planning.
When a gun owner becomes incapacitated or dies, his loved ones often mishandle his guns. They send his guns to the wrong person and to the wrong place. The 'wrong person' can be the cousin who couldn't be trusted to handle a mop safely, or it can be the favorite nephew who unfortunately has that tiny criminal conviction on his record. 'Wrong place' can mean the utterly fashionable city where your daughter lives, but whose restrictive laws make guns so uncommon they think Glocks are designer shoes. The result is that your guns won't be safe, or your loved ones won't be safe from gun laws.
The estate planning contained in the Arsenal Gun Trust™ not only records your wishes concerning who should inherit your gun, but it also helps ensure your guns are safe until they've been placed in safe hands. We believes this makes the Arsenal Gun Trust a tremendous value. For a low fee of $395, you can enjoy what could be a life-long benefit which also protects those who inherit your gun collection.
