Transfer Your Weapons Responsibly. A Florida firearms trust can be used to pass your firearms collection to your heirs. Like other trusts, a firearms trust can avoid the probate process, which is a matter of public record. You also can use a firearm trust to make sure your heirs do not unintentionally violate the law. A firearm trust is also useful for incapacity planning. If you are involved in an accident and become incapacitated, you may wish for your loved ones to have access to your guns. Perhaps you want them to be able to sell them if needed. Without a firearms trust, your family members may be breaking the law by handling your guns outside of your presence. A Florida firearms trust can be prepared for you by the Eidson Law Firm.
