Liberty List FAQ’s

 

  • What is the best way to search your site?
    • As the site grows we will be embellishing the search capabilities; at present a keyword search is not supported
    • Presented by type of firearm, hopefully with caliber and manufacturer, the form open ended as to what the seller wants to provide.
    • Yes, we will inspect listings for obvious errors and/or erroneous content
    • No, "What will make my friends and neighbors fear me?" is not a searchable criterion (at this time)
  • What if I cannot find the item I am looking for on your site? 
    • Of course, our inventory is limited by the inventory individuals have posted; as the site grows so will the inventory
    • You are in the wrong place, we don't sell crayons or coloring books
    • WE are, after all, in the business of facilitating YOU selling YOUR stuff as opposed to someone else’s, selfish as that sounds 
  • Will my wife give me grief if I buy this?
    • WE don’t know your wife, honest!
  • How do I respond to my wife when she asks, “YOU needed ANOTHER Gun (gun part, accessory) because?!?!?!?!”
    • “I have to find the right one to protect us and that takes experimentation, I will sell all the ones that failed my testing, I promise, and for a profit!”
    • “You know when the SHTF your relatives will show up empty-handed like they always do at dinner time”
    • “Your mother thinks your father has a mistress, it’s for her”
  • Can I possess a firearm legally if I am a felon?
    • The long answer: Persons who have been convicted of a “crime punishable for a term exceeding one year,” as defined by 18 U.S.C. & 921(a)(20) are prohibited from receiving or possessing firearms under Federal law, 18 U.S.C & 922(g)(1). The short answer: NO, unless you live in Virginia where the current governor is trying to make it a state requirement that you DO own a firearm if you are a felon on the condition that you vote multiple times and help “ensure the right candidates” are elected. (Another violation of Federal Law but that Governor don’t care)
  • Can a person prohibited from possessing a firearm acquire and use a black powder muzzle loading firearm?
    • Does the addition of a few “adjectives” in front of the word “firearm” change the definition of “firearm”? NO! The Gun Control Act of 1968 (GCA) prohibits felons and certain other persons from possessing or receiving firearms and ammunition (‘prohibited persons”). These categories can be found at 18 U.S.C. & 922(g) and (n) in http://www.atf.gov/files/publications/download/p/atf-p-5300-4.pdf.
    • However, every rule has an exception, just to make it more complex. They may buy “Antique firearms” defined as any with a matchlock, flintlock, percussion cap or similar type of ignition system, MANUFACTURED in or before 1898 (this last part is how they stop you from duck-taping one to the stock of your AK and claiming it as an “antique”).
    • Of course, as you suspected, this is further complicated by the rule that any “antique firearm” that “can be converted” to fire a cartridge, rimfire or centerfire, is prohibited from ownership by a prohibited person as well, see 18 U.S.C. & 845(a)(5) and 921(a)(3) and (a)(16), fill out ATF Form 4473, submit for a NICS (National Instant Criminal Background Check System). Oh, and by the way, State and local law may classify such weapons a “firearms” subject to regulation. They recommend any person buying a black powder weapon contact their states Attorney General’s Office for “details” – https://www.naag.org. Good luck with that.
  • Who are "prohibited persons" barred from owning a firearm?
    • Anyone:
      • convicted in any court of a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year;
      • who is a fugitive from justice;
      • who is an unlawful user of or addicted to any controlled substance (as defined in section 102 of the Controlled Substances Act, codified at 21 U.S.C. § 802);
      • who has been adjudicated as a mental defective or has been committed to any mental institution;
      • who is an illegal alien;
      • who has been discharged from the Armed Forces under dishonorable conditions;
      • who has renounced his or her United States citizenship;
      • who is subject to a court order restraining the person from harassing, stalking, or threatening an intimate partner or child of the intimate partner; or
      • who has been convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence.
      • who has voted for Hillary Clinton (or so we wish.)
      • Look for yourself - https://www.atf.gov/firearms/identify-prohibited-persons
  • Is buying a new or used gun or accessories or parts on-line a smart investment?
    • Not really, after all who else is going to pay for the overhead of the well-lighted, air-conditioned sales facility, at the end of a 30-mile drive, in traffic, both ways, with the employees incentivized to push existing inventory and/or high mark-up items? Well, not us, but we don’t speak for others
  • May I lawfully transfer a firearm to an individual who resides in a different State?
    • You can ship a firearm to yourself "in another state" where you plan to hunt or use it in any other lawful activity, but not to sell; so don't try this as you are required to "receive the delivery" personally; only do this if you really plan to use it to hunt or engage in any other legal activity within that state;
    • You can ship a firearm to another person within your state to transfer its possesion;
    • You can ship a firearm to an FFL holder in another state to complete the trandfer to another person. That person then pays a fee to the FFL holder for facilitating the legal transfer. 
  • What age limits apply in the transfer of firearms?
    • The Gun Control Act of 1968 made it illegal to sell a gun to anyone under the age of 21; prior to 1968 the US Army gave me a rifle that fired full-auto at age 19 and control of a mini-gun, at that same age, with live ammo in both
    • In Arizona it is legal for an 18 year old to own a firearm, long gun or hand gun, Title 13, Chapter 31, while, again, the federal law states the above condition
    • Federal, state and local laws all come into play, do your homework please.
  • How do I register my firearm or remove my name from a firearms registration?
  • Does the ATF issue a Concealed Carry Permit (CCP) that authorizes a person to carry a firearm throughout the United States?
    • No. A Bill to accomplish this has languashed in Congress for the past 5 years; while no one expected movement during the last "administration" the swamp-draining is taking priority, and longer than anticipated
  • Should I consider obtaining a Federal Firearms License?
    • Is there not enough stress in your life already?
    • Only if you plan to do this as a business, the ATF does not issue FFL's for personal use only
  • Is this the complete list of “frequently asked questions?”
