    any questions that might arise from an improper incident that might occur should the gun be stolen or lost and used in a criminal situation.  It shows a verifiable paper trail, and clears up many questions that could arise.

    I never would sell anything I have purchased, but would go through an FFL dealer if I were to sell to anyone, even if they were any of my friends who are very responsible with their collections.  Likewise, my firearm owning friends would also do the same with me as well.

    •  I'm fine with going through an FFL. (0+ / 0-)

      I'm just not sure that the requirement that the firearm be shipped to an in-state FFL is necessary, so long as the sale wouldn't violate the laws in the buyer's home state. As long as we're going to require background checks anyway, I don't really see the need for federal law to require the parties to perform them in one particular state.
