Wondering about the legalities of shipping a long gun directly to another individual within the same state.

Basically a private sale between two parties who have no restrictions prohibiting their ownership of firearms. The state is NC. I know that it is legal to do a private sale of a long gun in NC, just not sure about shipping. I certainly know any such private transaction of a handgun is definitely forbidden in NC. In the link directly below, I see no Federal restrictions.

Fed Laws

May a nonlicensee ship a firearm through the U. S. Postal Service?

A nonlicensee may mail a shotgun or rifle to a resident of his or her own state or to a licensee in any state. Handguns are not mailable. A common or contract carrier must be used to ship a handgun. A nonlicensee may not transfer any firearm to a nonlicensed resident of another state. The Postal Service recommends that longguns be sent by registered mail and that no marking of any kind which would indicate the nature of the contents be placed on the outside of any parcel containing firearms.

May a nonlicensee ship a firearm by carrier?

A nonlicensee may ship a firearm by carrier to a resident of his or her own state or to a licensee in any state. A common or contract carrier must be
used to ship a handgun. In addition, Federal law requires that the carrier be notified that the shipment contains a firearm and prohibits common or contract
carriers from requiring or causing any label to be placed on any package indicating that it contains a firearm. [18 U. S. C. 922( a)( 2)( A) and 922( e), 27 CFR 178.31]


Can anyone shed some light on NC state restrictions on shipping a long gun?

Thanks!

The first sentence says it all.


A nonlicensee may mail a shotgun or rifle to a resident of his or her own state or to a licensee in any state.



resident to resident = ok as long as state laws permit


For specific NC laws you'll probably get a better response in the NC Hometown Forum.

I can send a AR-15 lower to a FFL in a Slave state, without going through a FFL on my side?
