Times change and people change with them, but there are some things that simply shouldn't change- those are your values. In today's world a few irresponsible people often ruin it for the rest and one dummy going shooting and starting a wildfire or hurting a bystander could mean the difference between freedom and stricter gun control laws. That's why it's so important to not only properly pass on your assets to the next generation, but also to pass on your values.
A detailed gun trust can not only avoid NFA problems but also allow you to designate how future owners of your firearms should own and use them. Some gun owners would like to keep the firearms in the family as heirlooms for generations to come, while others would rather donate them to charitable purposes or have them available for safe and proper community recreation. Each of these goals can be achieved when proper planning is put in place and when you have a vision of the legacy you wish to leave.
Alternatively, those firearms could be left to whoever happens to receive them, rather than possibly left to rust in some basement, sold for some quick change, or even accidently start a wildfire somewhere. While, you never know what the future holds, you can ensure that your intentions are made clear and when you're gone that your legacy will be a clear reminder of what you valued most.
Planning gives you the control over how your collection should be used or distributed when you're gone. Creating a gun library, leaving them to the boy scouts, or bequeathing them to generation after generation of proud gun owners in the family are just a few options of what could be done.
