transferring guns
« on: May 27, 2011, 12:37:06 PM »
Was just wondering about something. My father in law past away in nov 2010 and he left all his guns to my three year old son. I want to know if there is a time limit to getting this done. Seeing as he is to young yet i was thinking of getting them transferred to me. But not sure if i have to or not. Not sure how it all works now with the election and all. Thanks for any info someone might have.

First off do you have a valid PAL?
If you do not, you must have one these or you are breaking the law,(possesion of a firearm without a valid licence) and no, I doubt the requirement for PAL's will be nixed in any short time (likely not at all)

As for transfering them, well there is an amnesty in place keeping you safe from prosecution for possesing a un registered non restricted firearm. With that in mind there have been instances where the cops have seized a persons un registered firearm and held it till the firearm was registered.

If you are just storing the firearms, and are not subject to causing the glare of the law to be directed upon you, I'd say sit pretty and let the Long Gun Registry gets chit canned.

If any of this makes you un easy, You'll know what to do next.
