Judith Graham: Advance Care Planning for Guns: Owners Can Help Ensure Safe Use and Transfer of Weapons (April 27, 2022)

Judith Graham, a blogger for KHN, has made available for download her article, “Advance Care Planning for Guns: Owners Can Help Ensure Safe Use and Transfer of Weapons”. The article begins as follows:

Kerri Raissian didn’t know what to do about her father’s guns when he died of covid-19 in December at age 86 and left her executor of his estate.
Her father, Max McGaughey, hadn’t left a complete list of his firearms and where they were stored, and he hadn’t prepared a realistic plan for responsibly transferring them to family members.
What’s more McGaughey had lived alone for at least a year at his home in Weimar, Texas, after being diagnosed with dementia in October 2020 — a situation Raissian realized was potentially unsafe but didn’t know how to address.
Now, a new tool can help gun owners and family members plan ahead for safe firearm use and transfers in the event of disability or death: The Firearm Life Plan, created by researchers at the University of Colorado and the Rocky Mountain Regional VA Medical Center in Denver.
