You sure about that?
I thought that FEDERAL law prohibits non residents from directly buying a handgun in any other state.
The gun has to first go to an FFL in the buyers state first, and then that FFL needs to do the final transfer to the buyer. It is that final FFL that insures the transfer tis in accordance with that state's laws.
That's true in this neck of the woods. I purchased a Colt Python some years back at a Nebraska gun show. That FFL owner had it shipped to my FFL dealer in Rapid City for pickup. Not a large hoop to jump through in my view. Certainly the state you reside in should have the authority in such matters.
I hope this new law passes, but if it doesn't, I'll continue to be a 'criminal' while driving across country with my Sodak CWP, and my Taurus Judge under the seat of my car...my private WMD.
When the one you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.
Bon: SigSauer has travelling reps going around the country holding sales blitzes. Our store says they were told this March, the rep would be bringing a display of all their new toys, and would be knocking off around 200 apeice. Just picked up a Sig Mosquito .22. VERY SWEET!! Can't wait for the rep and the "real" sigs!

But (and some may argue apples/oranges) a man & woman could get married in a state that doesn't meet WA's legal reqmts and they would still be recognized as married if they moved to WA.
This bill would not alter OOS purchases. Also speaking of "bizarre" I can go to WA and purchase all the .357 Mag ammunition (which is the "dangerous" part, imo) for my Smith 640 I want, but I can't carry the gun for it with my present permit. Go figure!and some states have some real bizarre laws concerning gun purchase by out of staters.....The problem I see with that, is then we'd never get anywhere on the issue because you'd never get all 50 states, districts commonwealths etc to agree on a standard. Again for a comparison though, a legally owned/possessed car in ID is still a legally owned/possessed car in WA, SD, NV etc.also some states make up register EACH individual CCW gun where some states blanket all guns you own as legal CCW...until you get more uniform laws, its better left to the individual states
Why shouldn't it be the same with a firearm whose right to keep/bear is constitutionally protected?
