Many sellers choose to go the private-party route when getting rid of their firearm. A private party is any individual or organization that operates outside the bounds of governments or public bodies. Private party transactions are not necessarily regulated, and therefore can be sketchy to deal with. The laws vary depending on which state you live in. However, it’s illegal to sell a firearm to convicted felons and other criminals no matter where you live.
When selling a gun private-party you can inadvertently give a gun to someone formerly convicted of a crime. Criminals are often willing to pay top dollar to acquire a weapon and so that you (the seller) will forgo the proper paperwork associated with legal gun sales. If a deal looks too good to be true, it probably is. We’re not saying that private party sales are inherently bad, but there is an element of uncertainty that accompanies them.
