Gun Trust Series Part 1 – Gun Trust 101

Gun Trust Series Part 1 – Gun Trust 101

Hi Everyone,
We are excited to start a new series talking all about gun trusts with special guest Attorney Ben Rust. Ben is a lawyer specializing in estate planing and trusts for NFA items and firearms, he is pretty much the go to guy for a great trust in Minnesota. We go over some of the basics of a good trust, the advantages and what a trust is. If you are new to NFA items and have been thinking about creating a trust, this series will hopefully answer a lot of your questions. We encourage you to contact an attorney in your area to help with your trust as they will know the specific laws and regulations that relate to you and can help develop a trust that meets your needs. In the coming parts of the series we will talk about the new regulations imposed by 41F and the life and death of a trust as well as who should be a part of it. Thanks for watching!

    i might of missed it.

    But how does one remove a trustee from their trust?

  3. Daniel Martin on October 27, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    They made a criteria to make a definition between SBR’s and pistols. If you meet 4 or more definitions then you have an SBR. They added a clause that says if they think you’re trying to circumvent the NFA even if you don’t truly meet the criteria they’ll still define your pistol as an SBR so even if your gun isn’t the correct weight, length, and such to be an SBR if they decide to, they’ll STILL say your rifle is an SBR. They’ve basically turned millions of americans into felons overnight, so if anyone is found to have a rifle designed pistol then you’ll practically have to immediately dispose of it unless you want to be convicted of a federal crime and no longer get to own guns. It’s like they did this on purpose so that they can criminalize so many people into no longer being allowed to own any guns.

    Great video. I hadn’t thought much about this and only own ‘regular’ handguns, but I’m going to explore the law here in NC about inheriting firearms. Thanks!

    Okay what happen to the bottom line.. what does it cost in general? That would be an important point to share. Also that site doesn’t really give you a bunch of whereto find an attorney unless you divulge personal info… Not really with that method of data mining.

  6. Roger l on October 27, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    so this video is older u have to get finger printed now right? with the new law.

  7. Rockaho on October 27, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    Excellent video. Thank you for creating.

  8. AC 67 on October 27, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    I watched all 4 parts and thanks for the great info. I do see, however, this is over 5 years old. Is this info still relevant or has anything changed? And if so can you do an update video? Thanks!

    How do I add someone to my trust

  10. Larry Richardson on October 27, 2021 at 9:54 pm

    Great concept of your show, all about firearms & everything you need to know from A -Z, pertaining to the responsibilities & legalities that’s involved. I’m a recent subscriber & look forward to every episode. It’s always good to be reminded & keep current of new developments of the ever changing firearms industry, as a gun owner I feel this should become part of your routine.

    If you own 4 suppressors do you need 4 tax stamps $200 x 4 ???

  12. J MAC on October 27, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    Dave Tim, a guy so nice they named him twice! Jk bud thanks for what you do I love the videos.

    "The right to keep & bear arms shall not be infringed" Definition of infringed: "actively break the terms of (a law, agreement, etc) act so as to limit or undermine (something); encroach on." So the federal government is actively breaking the highest law of our land & is undermining, limiting or encroaching on our Constitutional right to bear arms. And is the ATF a legal agency? I thought that after Waco Texas that the ATF was going to be abolished. The AT part I guess is legal but I think the F part is unconstitutional. Mind you this is not legal advise (because I’m not a lawyer) but these are questions I have bounced around my brain. Just myself expressing my First Amendment Right.

    My brother has a gun trust can I use his trust to get a NFA item and do I still have to do the fingerprint process if I’m co-trustee on his trust that was established in 2007

  15. k s on October 27, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    the NFA has not been legally tested in the courts and if it was , I would conclude that it is unconstitutional because the regulations place an undue burden on citizens in violation of the 2nd Amendment. It would be no different than if the government passed a law that required a tax stamp to exercise your freedom of speech, or religion, or right to remain silent. All of these rights are guaranteed by the Constitution and the government does not have the right to usurp the Constitution by passing legislation that would literally require a tax to enable you to exercise your Constitiutional rights.

    Outstanding and informative! I don’t have a trust! (Other than for our retirement) What I want to do is apply for a family trust for me, my wife and our three sons. And then that’s it! Is that a workable solution?

  17. hugoNOwhere on October 27, 2021 at 10:13 pm

    Awesome information. Thank you so much for putting the collaboration together.

  18. The Sickening on October 27, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    Well, thanks for this video. I’m still confused, but slightly less so. Will continue watching the series to gain more insight. Much appreciated, and subbed.

  19. Joseph Stalin on October 27, 2021 at 10:21 pm

    So, what happens if I sign it as an individual and if I had an untimely death, would they seize the gun ?

  20. Eric Janecek on October 27, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    Can anyone on the trust buy a NFA item and add it to the trust?

  21. Ryan Irving on October 27, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    Tax, you mean government extortion on a natural right recognized by the Constitution.

  22. Brendan Fazekas on October 27, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    Do I have to put anyone but myself on my trust I mean is say a minimum of 2 people?

  23. Garland Garrett on October 27, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    Updated for sure!!! Are there also state issues that may be a conflict/problem?
