Unusual risk management at NRA
"Moving $25 million worth of guns across the country is not something Emily Cummins usually handles. As risk manager for the National Rifle Association (NRA), Cummins is used to the more “typical” daily loss exposures: working in fine arts (collector guns are indeed fine art items), canceled conferences due to lousy timing, even hacktivism. But when she got the call in 2009 to take possession of a bequeathed firearm collection, she put together a risk management plan that rivaled Pentagon security."
Not only did the $25,000,000 donation have to be moved two thousand miles, without loss, it had to comply with all firearm laws on the way....
UPDATE: good point, FOPA should protect here. Although it's still a good idea to comply with all the laws that you can, since at least a couple of Federal courts have concluded that that part of FOPA creates an affirmative defense, not a bar to arrest. That is, the person can be arrested and charged, and argue his FOPA defense to the jury.
Why? Seems like FOPA would clearly apply here.

I would have loved a bit more detail on what they went through would have been interesting

It makes a lot of sense to give your guns to a museum that will be able to display them for the public. Petersen set a good example.
