    This diary has been ripped to shreds, yet you all who are copying and pasting laws etc are missing the point all together. HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT THESE LAWS ARE FOLLOWED?

    A friend registered to sell- no license.

    yep the laws are stated during the registration process.
    Yes you click you read the law.
    Sell your gun and then

    OPTIONS FOR SHIPPING:

    SHIP IT YOURSELF

    or OPTION 1- USE AN FFL LICENSED DEALER - AND IF YOU CHOOSE THAT WE CAN HELP.

    OPTION 2 -consignment w/an ffl dealer (didn't add that to the diary)

    If I sell, and offer only to take a money order, put my phone number etc up on the selling site - click on one or two of the examples in the diary as they do just this - HOW is any of this recorded? One of the guns we looked at last night was deleted.  

    you guys all assume that people are following the law.
    READ THIS

    Women are 51% of the population yet are represented in congress by barely 17%! Until our representation reflects the population, we risk sliding backwards .....

    •  That's a question for the regulatory agencies, (3+ / 0-)

      and postal inspectors.  I was not editorializing in any way, there was a lack of the language used in the requirements of the 4473 form

      I think that you're misreading the language when they say, "ship it yourself".

      That means although you have the option of bypassing an FFL licensee on your end, you still have to ship it to an FFL licensee on the other end.

      You simply cannot directly ship a firearm to the buyer unless they have a federal license.

      Of course criminals are going to circumvent the law, but they are not going to be using a known website such as Gunbroker or Buds.  They'll be using deepweb marketplaces such as Silk Road or whatever they do.
