See why I hate living in NY!!!???

if you are given a firearm by your father who lives in another state, are you required to use a FFL?

As I understand the Federal law- (and I am NOT a lawyer)

If you acquire a firearm from a resident of another state- and they are not a FFL holder (dealer) it needs to be transferred to you thru a dealer in your home state. That includes sales, gifts, trades, barter, and being given a gun to pay off a debt. ANY transfer of ownership of the gun.

The ONLY exception in Federal law is INHERITING a firearm. the Executor of an estate can give or ship a firearm to the recipient without a dealer. State law will vary.

Here is the law: http://codes.lp.findlaw.com/uscode/18/I/44/922

very long read.

FYI.... NICS check is obviously part of the transfer and is broken out now on purpose because NYS now is expecting Private Transfers Between two people to be done for only $10.00. Not too many dealers want the business for $10.00.
So this idea is being used by some of my associates.

Here is the law:
Q: Are dealers required to facilitate a private sale or transfer?

A: No, dealers in New York are not required to facilitate private firearm sales or transfers. However, if they do, they may not charge more than $10 per firearm to complete the sale or transfer. It is up to the private parties to decide who is responsible for paying the dealer.

So instead of turning away people, because it is not mandatory that FFL's do the transfer for anybody who walks in with a firearm...and to make it worth while.... Many dealers are using the gray area of $10.00 for NICS check to buyer and $10.00 transfer fee to seller. Thus giving the FFL doing the transfer, check and paperwork $20.00.
