A Gun Trust is a trust specifically established to purchase, own, and convey firearms at the grantor's death. Gun Trusts are usually established to purchase "Title II firearms", which include, but are not limited to machine guns, short-barreled rifles, and silencers. In order to transfer a Title II firearm, the ATF needs (among other information) fingerprints and a photograph of the transferee, and the signature of the Chief Law Enforcement Officer (CLEO) of the jurisdiction in which the transferee resides. The CLEO signature can be particularly burdensome to get, sometimes impossible. When an entity such as an LLC, corporation, or trust purchases a Title II firearm, no photograph, fingerprints, or CLEO signature are required. A trust is the entity of choice because no annual fees are required as with an LLC or corporation. Because the ATF does less investigatory work with a Gun Trust than an individual, the ATF tends to approve transfers much quicker. Furthermore, when an individual purchases a Title II weapon, the owner must possess it at all times; thus, the owner cannot lend it to his brother, spouse, or anyone else. With a gun trust, the trust can have multiple trustees (which are the legal owners); thus, multiple people can possess the Title II weapon. The grantor of the trust can amend the trust as to add or remove trustees at anytime.
