What If...??

In line with a previous posting about what to do if Big Brother tries to confiscate our guns... are there any laws preventing us from selling our guns to other private citizens prior to any confiscation, over the age of 21 of course and not otherwise prevented by law from owning guns?

Guns? What guns? I ain't got no guns! I don' need to show you no steenkin' guns!

There are no records of any guns I purchased, and by the time they (try to) make it mandatory to register every gun, I won't have any to register.

I have nothing to sell.....mine were all lost in a tragic boating accident.

I appreciate your comments. But seriously folks, what about handguns or rifles purchased in the last few years where one had to fill out an ATF 4473 form? Thet ATF would have records of those purchases, would they not?

It depends on what state you're in. Most states in the USA still allow private tranfer of firearms from one person to another without the involvement of a police agency or an FFL dealer. Some states require handgun registration and transfer through a specified record-keeping entity. For example CA requires private sales to go through a dealer who holds the firearm for the 10 day waiting period. In AZ you can meet a person in a parking, take the money, and hand over the gun never to see each other again. NV is the same as AZ except in Clark County where you're supposed to transfer at the police department so they can register the handgun and issue their precious butt-wipe known as the 'blue card.' Of course, if you move out of Clark County or sell to someone outside the county the last blue card stays on file and the registration becomes meaningless.

IOW--check your state / local laws.

You can buy and sell privately all you privately in TN. Lots of people go to the gun shows and wander around holding for sale signs. If I see a guy carrying something that I'd like to own I always ask if he just bought it of if he's selling. Best thing is to listen to people as the try to make trades with dealers, then follow up and offer a little more than the dealer did. Dealers are not paying squat right now.
