Whatever happened to this "Gun Show Loop Hole" that everyone talks about? I thought that the laws regarding sale between private citizens were different than those involving a dealer
That "Gun show loophole" ranks up there with Kosher ham, dehydrated water, and low salt brine.
Yes, the laws ARE different for sales between private persons. That is why a DEALER can sell a rifle to someone from another state, and a private person cannot.
As has been said by several folks here- this is governed by FEDERAL law- there is not question of a state law allowing something less stringent. It applies in all 50 (or 57) states.
The ONLY time that a firearm can be transferred private party to private party WITHOUT going thru a FFL holder is in the case of INHERITANCE of a firearm. The Executor of an estate CAN ship a firearm directly to an inheritor IF ownership of the firearm in legal in the inheritor's state.http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/922
