Can a Beneficiary of the Gun Trust, possess, transport or store the NFA firearms within the Gun Trust?

In order for a person to be able to possess, transport, store or use the NFA Firearms within the gun trust without the supervision of the settlor, the person will need to be a responsible person within the gun trust.  If the beneficiary is not a responsible person within the gun trust, e.g. a co-trustee, then the beneficiary cannot possess, transport, store or use the NFA Firearms within the gun trust without the supervision of the settlor or co-trustee.  It is worth noting that the beneficiary can still use the NFA firearms within the gun trust if the settlor or a co-trustee supervises the beneficiary using the NFA firearms.
