No. What I am saying is that for someone to give you a gun, or for you to buy a gun directly from a private party without an FFL, you both must be residents of the same state in order to comply with Federal law. Some state laws such as California will not allow private party transactions without an FFL within that state.

If I remember correctly, when moving to New York state, state law requires you to obtain a New York permit before you bring your handguns into the state, and then they must go through a New York FFL, but I might be wrong on New York. California requires you to register the handguns you bring with you, but that is just a form and $19 each you send to the state, no FFL required.
