What Does President Obama’s Executive Order On Gun Control Mean To You?
Many clients have been asking me what President Obama’s recent executive order on guns means to them. One of the biggest questions clients have is whether they qualify as gun dealers and therefore have to abide by a larger, more complicated set of regulations in order to legally transfer a firearm due to Obama’s executive order on guns.
As I discussed in my recent interview with NPR “Gun Rights Supporters Carry On After Obama’s Executive Actions”, the answer is not always clear. Listen to the story at http://www.npr.org/2016/01/12/462816972/gun-rights-supporters-carry-on-after-obamas-executive-actions
Questions About Obama’s Executive Order On Gun Control You May Have
Some scenarios clients have asked about after hearing Obama’s executive order on guns have included:
Q. What if I sell a gun to a friend or family member who bought a gun from me before?
A. Depending on when that prior purchase was and when you purchased the gun you’re selling, this administration and ATF may view you as a gun dealer who needs a license. Always consult with a Gun Rights attorney to fully understand your gun rights beforehand.
Q. What if I inherit several guns that I do not want to keep?
A. If you decide not to keep one or maybe two guns there shouldn’t be any problems, but several guns that you decide to sell may be deemed as engaging in the business of firearms. This is especially true if you did not have the guns go through the burden of probate court. Always consult with a Gun Rights attorney to fully understand your gun rights beforehand.
Q. What if I want to resell a gun I purchased at a gun show?
A. If you bought and sold right there at the gun show for a profit this administration is likely to view you as needing a license, as they are targeting gun shows and individuals. Always consult with a Gun Rights attorney to fully understand your gun rights beforehand.
Q. What if I list a gun for sale online or an auction site?
A. Listing one gun shouldn’t be a problem, however listing multiple guns or any guns you bought recently may make you a target for Obama’s ATF. Always consult with a Gun Rights attorney to fully understand your gun rights beforehand.
The answers always depend on the specific facts and circumstances of your unique situation. Always consult a Gun Rights attorney to fully understand your gun rights beforehand.
