Q: Regarding the sale of a gun from my store: I have an FFL in Bristol, VA and a store in TN. A customer from VA comes into my TN store, he has a VA address, driver?s license, and VA concealed carry permit. The customer finds a handgun in my TN store and decides to buy it. I complete the sale from my TN inventory through my TN store. Because the customer resides in VA I now have to transfer the handgun to an FFL in VA. My TN FFL transfers the handgun to my VA store. The customer completes his portion of the form 4473, I complete the remaining portion and fill in the FFL number of my VA store, and the customer and I complete the transfer. The form 4473 and all additional paperwork is taken from TN to VA by me at the end of the work day and filed in the VA store. The customer takes possession of the handgun and following the laws regarding proper transport of a firearm travels with the handgun from my store in TN to his residence in VA. Have any federal laws been violated? If so, what law(s) and how?
