So I have looked at both laws and have a few questions I hope someone in the know can answer.

1: Can WA resident siblings gift each other a semi auto rifle or pistol without the otherwise required background checks and waiting period?
Under 1639 Sec. 11 (4) A It appears siblings are exempt from background checks if the transfer is a gift or loan....correct?

2: Can a WA resident gift a sibling who is not a resident a semi auto rifle? If so, are background and wait times required?
Under 1639 Sec. 12 "Residents of a state other than Washington may purchase rifles and shotguns, except those firearms defined as semi auto assault rifles." I believe this means a non resident cannot buy a "Assault Rifle", but would a gift from a sibling be just that or a purchase?

4: Can a WA resident gift a sibling who is not a resident a semi auto pistol or would the above quoted apply? If so, are background and wait times required?

I will probably talk to a lawyer, but just thought I would see what the forums members had to say.

Thank you
 
OP's questions answered. Nothing left to discuss here. Any further explanations needed are best left up to an attorney.
