Suppose I fell in love with a beautiful 1911 that my friend owned. I loved that gun so much, I named her Lucy. Then - suppose I bought Lucy privately, but in stages... Part A on Monday, part B on Tuesday. Is that legal? Would a background check be required? Or is there a core element of a gun that would be illegal to transfer privately? Basically, I'm asking if the new law prohibits the private transfer of gun parts. 'Cause if it doesn't, then what's to stop anyone from simply buying a box of parts, then putting them back together at home? Maybe there's a "Lucy Law" that would prevent the private transfer of that disassembled 1911 into my hands?
