    From the ATF site:

    Q: To whom may an unlicensed person transfer firearms under the GCA?

    A: A person may sell a firearm to an unlicensed resident of his State, if he does not know or have reasonable cause to believe the person is prohibited from receiving or possessing firearms under Federal law. A person may loan or rent a firearm to a resident of any State for temporary use for lawful sporting purposes, if he does not know or have reasonable cause to believe the person is prohibited from receiving or possessing firearms under Federal law. A person may sell or transfer a firearm to a licensee in any State. However, a firearm other than a curio or relic may not be transferred interstate to a licensed collector.

    It's pretty clear that the ATF is aware that individuals sell an occasional gun to another individual and the ATF has gone as far as to describe the exact conditions under which an "unlicensed person" can legally sell a firearm.

      comment.

      Your nonsequitor about the private sales by unlicensed dealers emphasizes that the private sales exemption is a loophole so big that the French farming industry could drive all their tractors/trucks through it without even forming single file. They could drive side-by-side without even brushing the edges, the loophole is that huge.

        I don't even need to be in this argument. LilithGardener says:

        Dealer is not defined in the law - believe it or not
        LilithGardener replies:
        You know as well as I do, that Federally licensed dealers are already defined.
        LilithGardener adds some commentary about LilithGardener:
        Nothing in your comment contradicts my prior comment
        LilithGardener is quite capable of rebutting everything LilithGardener says without my help, and can even provide snide commentary about LilithGardener.

        My work here is done.

          they define a subset.

          Federally licensed dealers

          is a subset of

          Dealers

          I think I learned adjectives and subsets in First or Second grade, didn't you?
