Thread: ?? about inheriting handguns
My dad, who was a Kansas resident, passed away this past summer. My mom wanted to get his guns out of the house and she gave them to me. Several handguns and long guns.
By law, am I required to file any paperwork, or am I ok?
I don't want any issues like are being discussed under a separate topic.
"I can live for two weeks on a good compliment."
Loose lips sink ships....shall not preclude any person who lawfully acquires a firearm by bequest or intestate succession in a State other than his State of residence from transporting the firearm into or receiving it in that State, if it is lawful for such person to purchase or posses such firearm in that State...
Technically, being his son, and direct heir, absent a Last Will and Testament, the executor is responsible for the proper disposition of the estate. Kansas may be like the majority of states where the spouse, absent a will, is the defacto executor and may dispose of the estate's property as she sees fit. All she has to "say" is; "Dad wanted you to have these."
