ATF's Advice on Internet and Private Sales of Firearms

Straight from the horse's mouth:


Takeaways:
  • If you don't have a Federal Firearm License (FFL) you are considered an 'unlicensed dealer' by the ATF
  • In a private sale firearms can be bought over the Internet, at flea markets/gun shows and informally from one individual to another; without paperwork or background check.
  • An 'unlicensed' person may sell a firearm to an 'unlicensed' resident of their state; provided you don't believe the buyer is Mr. Stabby McRapington.
  • An 'unlicensed' individual is prohibited from selling a firearm to a person who lives in another state.
  • If you're uncomfortable about buying or selling with an 'unlicensed' person; utilize a current FFL to perform a background check.
