    I have a Mass class A LTC. Have recently moved to RI and would like to sell a couple of firearms which I have domiciled in RI. Can I sell in both RI or Mass. and what are the requirements ?

    Federal offense to sell to a non-FFL in any state where both buyer and seller reside in different states. Can only sell thru a dealer into MA.

    ...so you do not have a MA LTC anymore unless you got your non-res already.

    In either case you cannot legally sell to another individual.

    Did you report your move to your MA issuing authority? If not, theres a time frame you are suppose to do it by. You cant have it both ways

    If that is literally what you did, you are NOT in compliance with the law. The specifies CERTIFIED Only. Dumb as that might be, it is the law.

    Honestly failure to report an in state move or out of state move is a common mistake that is rarely enforced.. in action should rarely be a crime... like the bumpstock enforcement....how can not surrendering something you bought legally be a crime? Bow to your masters...

    I did send CERTIFIED to appropriate agencies. My mistake on previous post.
