Q: Let’s run a hypothetical situation for a private party transfer. Suppose that the FFL is licensed in State X. Let’s also suppose that the private party individual seller has valid government issued identification for State X as well. And let’s finally suppose that the individual buyer has valid government issued identification from State Y. – Can the FFL facilitate the private transfer of a pistol between Individual X and Individual Y, or would the FFL be in violation of the rule that requires that individuals receiving a handgun must be resident of the same state as the FFL? – If the purpose of facilitating a private party transfer is to determine whether the buyer is non-prohibited, then is it logical for the FFL to refuse providing services to out of state individuals on the basis of pistol-rifle-receiver? Would such constrictions on private transfer have a discouraging effect on ensuring public safety by refusing a NICS check?
