I am a washington resident. Can i sell a gun to a BC resident here in Washington.
You are trying to sell a gun to someone that isn't a US citizen?
The answer is no. I was misled by the buyer and wanted to know about how to deal with it. I told him i had an ffl and he backed out. His account says he is a washington resident.
Hmmmmm, Sounds like the mods should know. That kind of BS can get you thrown in the slammer. Selling a gun to a foreign citizen is federal jail time.
Unless you are the ATF, and you sell the guns to Mexican drug dealers. That's ok I guess.
But really. I'ld want to get the buyer shut down, so it doesn't happen again. Mods????
So its clear what happened.....A junior member with no posts from Bellingham WA responded to my add . We had a short email conversation about details of the trade. He told me infact he is canadian so i suggested ffl and he declined .I started this thread to clear the air for me and others that might not know all the exacts of the law.
You were told on another site. You have to ask on how many?
Really? I don't know what you are talking about and I dont think you do either. Thanks for your input anyway.
dont you mean legal resident?
Thank you mcathcart
Not a bad idea to have threads on these subjects every day.
Now is the guy a Canadian or is he a WA resident? In your earlier message to me you said he was a WA resident that was living in Canada at this time. Which would imply he is not a Canadian but just there on a temporary work visa or similar circumstance.
He said he was a WA resident but when i told him what i would need to do the sale he said he had a BC license and carry permit .So i mentioned ffl and he backed out
Then he is not a WA resident and was trying to commit a felony. You need to mention his screenname.
Pretty sure I do. Pretty sure you know what I'm talking about too.
no why dont you explain it to me and empty your in box so conversations like this can stay private
I am a Canadian citizen who lives in Vancouver, WA. I am a legal resident of the state with all the appropriate paperwork to be here It is legal for me to buy all the firearms I want as well as to have a WA CPL. Of course if I was a non-resident, it's a totally different story.
If you ever have any doubts about selling a firearm it's safer to just err on the side of caution and find a different buyer. You'll sleep better that way.
