Interstate Transfer Question

Asking for a friend. Really.

I know a woman whose husband died in 2020, and she subsequently gave away his rifles to her late husband's brother-in-law. Thing is, she lives in Virginia, and he was in town from Indiana for the funeral. This is a matter of federal jurisdiction, obviously, so here are my questions ...

1. Was this transfer legal? Is there a familial exemption for interstate transfers? And even then, is a former brother-in-law even legally "family"?

2. If this transfer was not legal, how should they have done it? I mean, the guy was standing right in front of her. Should she still have shipped the rifles to an FFL in Indiana?

Thanks. I told her I would inquire.
