Read the WA statute concerning out of state purchases that I posted earlier in the thread. Nowhere does it mention that in order to buy long guns in another state, that the buyer has to follow the extra WA steps in that state. It goes on to state that the purchase is only subject to WA's procedures (ie. 1639) and background check, if the sale takes place in WA. I'm sure this "loophole" will be amendment once Dems get wind of it (just like being a able to buy a receiver same day surely will) but for the time being it's legal. I really don't understand how so many gun owners are clueless to their rights.No doubt you did but how about after WA changed its laws with respect to semi-auto rifles?
Subject to the exception in subsection (b)(3), subsection (a)(3) of section 18 U.S. Code § 922 requires transfers of firearms to go through a FFL in the persons state of residence. Subsection (b)(3) of section 18 U.S. Code § 922 allows transfers of rifles and shotguns by out of state FFLs but only if the transferee meets in person with the transferor to accomplish the transfer, and the sale, delivery, and receipt fully complies with the legal conditions of sale in both such States. So how does an OR or ID FFL fully comply with all of the legal conditions for sale of an AW in WA at this time? If they cannot, then there is no exception and subsection (a)(3) controls.
I would if it didn't mean an "Assault weapon fee," registration with the DOL, and the 10 day waiting period, which is more often than not, up to a month because of the backlog.Take the stupid 3 minite test at sporting systems and move on...
