Question: Is it legal to ship a gun?

Written by , Posted in Firearm Law

Answer:

Yes.  It is legal to ship a gun.  However, the devil is in the details.  First, a gun can only be shipped to the holder of a valid Federal Firearms License.  The sender, however, is not required to have a valid Federal Firearms License.  Second, the sender must not be otherwise prohibited from owning a gun.  If you are prohibited from owning a gun, you cannot ship a gun.  Third, the sender must also notify the shipping company that the package contains a gun.  Ammunition cannot be shipped with the gun.   You should also check with the different shipping companies to determine their internal policies and procedures.
