We understand that there are some that are determined to try it alone at first. So for those who elect to sell on their own, here is a helpful guide on Georgia’s gun regulations to ensure you sell your item legally.
Georgia Requirements to Purchase a Firearm
In order to purchase a firearm legally, the buyer must be 18 years old to purchase long guns and ammunition. Buyers looking to purchase handguns must be at least 21 years old. No permits or registration are required to own a firearm in the state.
Anyone purchasing a firearm from a licensed firearms dealer must complete a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms form 4473 (firearms transaction form). This form will be maintained by the dealer. A firearms purchaser must, under the permanent provisions of the Federal Brady Law, also undergo a National Instant Criminal Background Check System check, which will be performed by the firearms dealer.
This check will indicate to the dealer whether the purchaser’s background allows for the person to complete the purchase of the firearm. If the check disallows the sale for no warranted reason, there is an appeal process the purchaser can pursue to receive the necessary clearance to complete the purchase.
Is it Legal to Sell a Gun Through a Private Sale?
In the state of Georgia, there are no specific laws requiring a background check to buy or sell a firearm in a private transaction between two individuals.
However, there are potential legal ramifications for buyers and sellers if the transaction was conducted under the following conditions:
- The gun was sold to an ineligible person
- The firearm being sold had a defaced serial number.
- The sold firearm is a federally restricted firearm (explosive weapon, machine gun).
These are just some of the potential issue one sellers can face in a private sale and criminal charges can be issued to all parties including up to a felony criminal charge.
Georgia Firearm Ownership Restrictions
Generally, Georgia defaults to federal law regarding the restrictions of firearms ownership. The following disqualifies a person in Georgia from purchasing a firearm.
FEDERAL DISQUALIFICATION CATEGORIES
- Conviction (felony or misdemeanor) where the crime has a maximum imprisonment term exceeding 1 year (even if a buyer did not receive actual imprisonment exceeding 1 year).
- Warrant (felony or out-of-state misdemeanor).
- Felony pre-trial release.
- Misdemeanor crimes of domestic violence restraining/stalking/protection order mental health adjudication or commitment.
- Unlawful use or addicted to a controlled substance (including marijuana).
- Dishonorable discharge from the armed forces.
- Renounced U.S. citizenship.
- Illegal alien.
