    Brecht, go to and look up your state there. They will tell you in general what you need to do, if anything, to sell those guns.

    Miss Brecht,
    Get paid in full!
    If the friend is a resident of the same state and there is no reason he/she cannot leagally own them, get the money.

    Some advice for a seller of firearms:

    1. Do you know who you are selling these guns to? If you do, and they are from the same state, you'll have some sort of idea whether or not he's able to own firearms. If he is, let the transaction take place. If not, get a name and driver's license (cover you rear, or you may be nabbed for straw purchase).

    2. Keep the record, just in case the fuzz ever visits your door on trace info. Keep in mind, a bulk majority of all crime guns were obtained illegally from the black market, where the price is very low, and the guns are stolen in the first place. Don't be surprised if they want to cover their rear and make sure the guns they are purchasing are not stolen before they buy, especially if they don't know you.

    Thank God you don't live where you would have to run through red tape and a labyrinth of hurdles. This keeps it simple.

    Remember how many seats were lost after AWB passage? Vae victis!
    Those who would offer any interpretation that would relegate Amendment II to "relic" status of a bygone era are blatantly stating that the remainder of the Bill of Rights isn't worth a damn, either.
