The feds do not consider a MA LTC a viable substitute for a NICS check therefore, in the view of the feds, an LTC is insufficient for a dealer sale. The Hildebeast would expand that to make it insufficient for private sales.How is verifying someone has a valid ltc, something that legit takes 2 minutes to do and I assume most of us do for personal transfers, not enough for a private sale? If the buyer has a valid ltc, you can sell to them. If you're not careful and sell to someone without a license, you're in trouble. Where's the loophole? I hate all the stupid "loophole" bullsh*t talk from people who know nothing about the process.
They're gonna essentially make it so you can only buy or transfer guns and ammo at an FFL. In MA, that will also eliminate the transfer of any guns not on the magical lists. Limit the list a little at a time and the agenda is complete.
The "loophole" exists in other states; less so in MA.
