A friend asked me for some advice today and, for one rare moment, I wasn't sure how to answer. Here's the scenario: Assume this all takes place in Oregon... An older fellow dies, leaving a few dozen weapons to his widow. Revolvers and lever guns (nothing NFA). Now a couple of the (adult) kids are squabbling over who gets what. Seems to me they're all the widow's guns to keep, sell or give to anyone she sees fit. Yes? Given how the collection was assembled over the years, I'm guessing that most were private transactions. But even if some/all were acquired through dealers with background checks, they're still her property to dispose of any way she likes. Is she required to report anything to anyone? I don't think so, but I'm not a lawyer either. My friend will call some FFL guys tomorrow and some other people who should steer him right. I advised him not to mistake my opinion for legal advice. I suspect, though, that as long as no state lines are crossed, it's all adults, and no felons are involved, this is no different than her selling or gifting a bicycle. Yes? No? Perhaps?
