I have a question hopefully someone will know the answer about selling guns....isn't correct if a store sells a gun there is a waiting period and don't they run some kind of check? but there are several facebook local sites for selling things and people are selling guns on that legal?

Private individuals can sell a firearm to another private individual without any paperwork or waiting period. I would recommend you insist on a bill of sale just to cover you in case of any questions and never buy a firearm with an altered serial number because that makes it an illegal weapon.

Thank you for clearing this up for me!

No wonder it is so easy for criminals to get a hold of guns. I am for the second amendment but shouldn't even private sales be screened somehow?

Watchpig I can't see a practical way for a private sale to be screened can you?

Criminals get hold of guns lots of ways but I don't think buying them from private owners is high on the list. Breaking in and stealing them is more their modus operandi.

yeah i don't see a way to screen private sales...but i do worry about it. i believe we have the right to bear arms but i do beliving in a waiting period and screening....anyway

and Bryant you are right...I had my handgun stolen from me.....who knows where it went or who got or what has been done with it.

I think Gun Nut had some good advice here "insist on a bill of sale just to cover you in case of any quesitons."

Firearms how about requiring a private sale to be run thru a licensed gun dealer? The dealer could charge a small fee for the service and the background check could still be preformed.
