Felons have a permanent firearm disability. A competent attorney can advise him about what types of non-firearm weapons he can possess. However he should examine the Judgment of Conviction to see if he was actually convicted of a Felony. A charge, Warrant or Indictment, is not a conviction.

Anthony Marvin Avery's answer
You need to read the Trust Instrument first. Then in accordance with its terms, the Trustee deeds the property to the Beneficiary. It can be a Quit Claim or Warranty Deed. The Trustee conveys just like any other conveyance, which will probably say a dollar and other good and valuable consideration. The Valuation Affidavit should probably recite the present value of property conveyed, with tax computed and paid thereon. A competent attorney needs to draft the Deed.
