A California Gun and & Trust Lawyer, (not currently a NFA Gun Trust Lawyer®) has written an interesting article on creating language in your trust to specifically permit the trust funds to be used for firearms education and training along with the typical K-12, college, or post-graduate study that most trusts would allow for. After all it was George Washington who said that “firearms deserve a place of honor with all that’s good.”
David R. Duringer, a firearms trainer, and attorney licensed in CA and WA goes on to state:
Such training can provide your children with the comfort of skill at arms so they can protect themselves and their own children, and furthermore, passes on American values necessary to preserve political independence of families in our society. Other benefits of such training can include increased personal responsibility and lower juvenile delinquency rates.
You may even want to go further with an incentive trust provision actually requiring this training, possibly with achievement standards.
