Exemptions Available for Firearms

According to current laws, there are a few ways a person can protect their firearms from being liquidated under Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Without proper protection, it is possible that a person’s firearms could be sold off to repay creditors in bankruptcy proceedings. A person may want to file for the following exemptions to protect their guns from this process:

  • A wild card property exemption from the state
  • A “tools of the trade” exemption if the guns are used for work
  • A federal property exemption

In the case of a wild card exemption, these exemptions can be used for any property a debtor may want to protect from liquidation.
