#3 Jun 11, 2011 is one of my favorite sites to visit.

It is a great place to find guns for sale or trade. And some very unique firearms may be found there.

The variety found there is interesting.

Just like everything else, you need to be an educated shopper.

Exclusive: Erich Pratt says Obama's action amounted to issuing threat to the law-abiding

Published: 1 day ago
By Erich Pratt

On Tuesday, the Obama administration announced another set of “executive actions” designed to bypass Congress and impose new gun controls by imperial fiat. The main focus of these actions allegedly is to “clarify” what constitutes being “engaged in the business” of dealing in firearms, thus requiring a federal firearms license (“FFL”).

Gun owners should know, however, that this purported “clarification” does nothing to change the current law, which already is quite clear. Rather, the Obama administration’s purpose appears to be the launch of a campaign of fear against law-abiding gun owners. The president has long stated that his goal is to require a background check for 100 percent of gun sales. Absent any authority to do that on his own, his next best option was to threaten to prosecute gun owners who engage in private sales, hoping to intimidate them into running their legal sales through FFLs rather than to take the risk.

Federal law is very clear. Since the Gun Control Act of 1968, any person who is “engaged in the business of dealing in firearms” must be licensed. Until 1986, the term “engaged in the business” was left undefined by Congress and was given various meanings by different courts. But in the Firearm Owners Protection Act of 1986 – enacted over ATF’s strong objections – Congress provided explicit and precise definitions designed to greatly narrow the scope of what constitutes being “engaged in the business.”

Today, a person is “engaged in the business” if he “devotes time, attention, and labor to dealing in firearms as a regular course of trade or business with the principal objective of livelihood and profit through the repetitive purchase and resale of firearms.…”

Although criminal statutes that define crimes rarely go so far as to clarify what is not a crime, in this case Congress wanted to protect gun owners to the maximum extent possible by providing a safe harbor. Thus, the statute states that the definition of dealing “shall not include a person who makes occasional sales, exchanges, or purchases of firearms for the enhancement of a personal collection or for a hobby, or who sells all or part of his personal collection of firearms.…”

Congress then went even further, requiring that a person buy and resell firearms “with the principal objective of livelihood and profit”– which “means that the intent underlying the sale or disposition of firearms is predominately one of obtaining livelihood and pecuniary gain, as opposed to other intents, such as improving or liquidating a personal firearms collection.”

Now that is quite a lengthy definition. But Congress wanted to be very careful to precisely define a firearms dealer, so that the executive branch (from the president to the attorney general to federal prosecutors) would not be able to put their own “spin” on the law. Indeed, even the rogue ATF was left with no wiggle room and admits that its regulation “is identical to the language of the statute.”
