I've seen some posts by forum members over the years that seemed to advocate for a trust so their kids could be on it. I saw the following post over at Sturm:
See 4th post from the top. Not a good idea.

That's just not how it works. Even if you have nfa items personally and they get confiscated you still retain ownership and can sell them. I've bought a number of guns from felons who were no longer in possession of their guns. One guy went down for manslaughter (I never actually met the guy) and sold off his stuff. Title one guns are much more difficult to make that happen because they are not titled. If the guns were a part of an actual crime or maybe a drug house, all bets are off. Always more to the story however if it really did go down like that. There are many instances where people abandon their stuff for a number of reasons, and allow it to be kept, sometimes just due to ignorance.
I see other potential pitfalls with trusts, but that scenario isn't one of them.

Do I need a Trust to will my NFA items to my wife?
