When the Primer Ignites No More (Guns and Estate Planning)
Do you have clients who own guns? The tradition of gun use and ownership in Pennsylvania predates the creation of the Commonwealth; however, given the current myriad of complex laws and regulations that exist at the state and federal level, few attorneys, let alone non-lawyers, understand and comprehend the maze of laws that apply, especially in relation to estate planning and estate administration, when the estate includes firearms and ammunition. For example, have you ever considered whether the executor or administrator is a prohibited person? Do you even know what causes one to become a prohibited person? What do you do if you find a machinegun or silencer in the decedent’s home? Please join us for a hand-guided tour through the complex maze of estate planning and administration, when the estate has firearms.
