Can someone sell and ship a firearm (long gun) to another person w/o the use of a FFL. If the receiving party's state has no law that requires a FFL transfer for Long guns?

Check the BATFE website or do a search here. [This gets asked a lot here, like every week or so.]

Interstate transfer of a frame/firearm WITHOUT using an FFL at the receiving end is a FED FELONY!

"receiving partys state has no law that requires FFL for long guns" whether true or not is a moot point.
There is a federal law that stipulates that ALL interstate fiream transactions has to go to a FFL in the receipients state.

So no, you can not ship directly to a person out of state. It has to go to his FFL.

I figured it had to be FFL transferred.
