Federal Firearms Licensees

Every day, many lawful transfers of firearms take place between unlicensed individuals who reside in the same state. These take place at residences, at gun shows, and through classified ads. Now there are more options than ever (and online options are ever-growing) to selling your firearm. When individuals decide to use FFLs to facilitate the private sale of their firearms, it can enhance public safety and help ensure firearms end up in the hands of those who are legally allowed to possess them.
