Here is an article that explains gun trusts in some detail. I'd' wondered how long it would take for the gun grabbing little Nazi's to discover and
try to outlaw this as well. They absolutely WILL NOT STOP until the only guns of any meaningful size or power are *ONLY* held by police or Government.
They have a snowball's chance in hell itself of actally GETTING that fantasy-land dream to ever happen in this real world we live in....but some of
these nut cases LIVE in a world where reality bends to their will...not like they have to conform their thinking and attitude to it.
Overview of Gun Trusts
Put VERY VERY simply, it's a legal structure by which you can buy and own a large number of NFA/Class III weapons (among other things) without the
same draconian and downright brutal laws that accompany such a weapon in your possession now. It doesn't change MUCH.....and it's no friggin loophole,
but it makes it possible for a FAMILY to enjoy a collection of weapons, for instance.
Under current law, if I own a Class III M-16, for instance and go down to shoot it at the range? Well.. I'm fine and dandy ...until I hand it to my
son to fire a few rounds from. Err... That's grey these days (and shouldn't be) ..but depends on what ATF agent saw you and how Super- he thought his
Super-Agent powers were that day.
Now if I handed it to my son and then ran off to the bathroom while my wife supervised? To my understanding, I'll have a few years in a federal prison
to think about how badly I *REALLY* needed that bathroom break.
The Trust addresses some of that..at least, that's my understanding after listening to it talked about off and on for over a year on a gun talk show I
used to catch on Satellite Radio.
