That is wrong.
Under federal law:
- It would only apply to long guns. A handgun would need to be shipped by the transferor to an FFL in the transferee's State of residence for transfer, on a 4473, to the transferee.
- Even in the case of a long gun, the transfer must be done on a 4473 by an FFL.
- Even in the case of a long gun the gun must be legal in the transferee's State of residence and the transfer must be legal under the laws of the transferee's State of residence.
