In human society, family (from Latin: familia) is a group of people related either by consanguinity (by recognized birth) or affinity (by marriage or other relationship). The purpose of families is to maintain the well-being of its members and of society. Ideally, families would offer predictability, structure, and safety as members mature and participate in the community. In most societies, it is within families that children acquire socialization for life outside the family, and acts as the primary source of attachment, nurturing, and socialization for humans. Additionally, as the basic unit for meeting the basic needs of its members, it provides a sense of boundaries for performing tasks in a safe environment, ideally builds a person into a functional adult, transmits culture, and ensures continuity of humankind with precedents of knowledge.
Anthropologists generally classify most family organizations as matrifocal (a mother and her children); patrifocal (a father and his children); conjugal (a wife, her husband, and children, also called the nuclear family); avuncular (for example, a grandparent, a brother, his sister, and her children); or extended (parents and children co-reside with other members of one parent's family).
Members of the immediate family may include spouses, parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, sons, and daughters. Members of the extended family may include aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, nieces, and siblings-in-law. Sometimes these are also considered members of the immediate family, depending on an individual's specific relationship with them, and the legal definition of "immediate family" varies. Sexual relations with family members are regulated by rules concerning incest such as the incest taboo.
The field of genealogy aims to trace family lineages through history. The family is also an important economic unit studied in family economics. The word "families" can be used metaphorically to create more inclusive categories such as community, nationhood, and global village.

I was at the Rent Air Races this last week. The last race of the last day we lost grip maker Aaron Houge.

Al I can tell you is that it was very quick.
Please send your thoughts and prayers to his family.
Very sad day.
So, I read the law for Oregon and I am legally allowed to transfer a firearm to a close family member without going through an FFL. My mother is considering buying a firearm from me. Where it gets tricky is that she lives in Washington. Do we need to get an FFL involved for this transfer if she...

While at this point, we usually think of a trust in relation to a class 3 collection, but what if the Idgets get their way on an existing "everyday firearms" ban ?
Theoretically, would the named surviving spouse be able to obtain a pain free transfer ?
