If you have in fact inherited them (as in it was in the decedant's will) then you now own them and just follow FOPA transporting them home or having them shipped directly to you.
If there is no will and you get them as a general disposition of assets then they most likely are gifts and need to be transferred (as in shipped) to a FFL in Va. The executor in La should handle that, which most likely will mean they will end up going to a FFL there to, amomg other things, cover their backside.
If there is still time, get the soon-to-be-deceased to write out a will. In most cases wills do not have tpo be written by an attorney, and may cover specific assets and not the entire estate. Or they can be specific as to certain items and them "equally divided" or "equal shares" for the rest. It is best to at least consult an attorney in La if going that route.
