Exactly, it's all about intent, and it's a federal law, so it trumps state.
If you buy a gun SPECIFICALLY with the intent to resell at a profit, that is ILLEGAL.
now, prove intent in a court of law.
if you buy one gun, then realize that you can't really afford it because it maxed out your credit card, and you resell it a week later to pay off your credit card so you can put groceries on the table....that's not really illegal.
but if you buy 3 or 4 of the same exact gun, drive across town to the local gunshow, and sell them the same day...that's probably illegal, and it would be awfully hard to introduce reasonable doubt when you're standing before the judge/jury.
The question is, do you feel like risking jail time to make a few bucks?
