Q: Today a man and his wife came into the shop to purchase handguns. The husband is a member of the military. He and his wife’s home of record (for pay purposes) is Arkansas. He and his wife have been stationed in the state of Washington up until approximately 1 week ago. He has PCS orders to the state of Arizona, but they are both “Home” for leave between the move. They are staying at the wife’s mother’s house and will be there for the next month-and-a-half to two months. The wife has a valid Arkansas Driver’s License with the address of her mother’s house on it. The husband also has an Arkansas Driver’s license. The address is incorrect on his, but he has voiced his plans / willingness to go get his Driver’s License changed. It’s clear that using military ID and PCS orders would not work. However, using an Arkansas Driver’s License: Question 1: Is the sale legal to the wife? Question 2: Is the sale legal to the husband? Question 3: Does the “vacation home” provision play into this at all? My concern is the residency definition. Are they “making a home” here? Well.kind of..for two months.and it IS a home of record.but not like buying pots and pans and putting kids in school. Thanks for the help. I didn’t know how to search for this specific scenario.
