Why should a citizen need a license to sell something? Again, that is the anti-gunners goal, to drive any gun sales through the gov't, eliminating all private sales. Like California, where every single gun sale has to go through a dealer. (That is, until they can outlaw gun possession completely, which is their true objective.)I prolly should have clarified. If one intends to sell firearms at the show maybe they should have a license. I realize that currently, there are no laws requiring a license . Thank goodness! Just an opinion.
There are indeed such laws against being an unlicensed dealer. As unclear, confusing, and subject to interpretation, as they are.
"A person who willfully engages in the business of dealing in firearms without the required license is subject to criminal prosecution, and can be sentenced to up to five years in prison, fined up to $250,000, or both."
"Under federal law, conducting business “with the principal objective of livelihood and profit” means that “the intent underlying the sale or disposition of firearms is predominantly one of obtaining livelihood and pecuniary gain, as opposed to other intents, such as improving or liquidating a personal firearms collection.”"
"Courts have identified several factors relevant to determining on which side of that line your activities may fall, including: whether
you represent yourself as a dealer in firearms; whether you are repetitively buying and selling firearms; the circumstances under which you are selling firearms; and whether you are looking to make a profit. Note that while quantity and frequency of sales are relevant indicators, courts have upheld convictions for dealing without a license when as few as two firearms were sold, or when only one or two transactions took place, when other factors were also present."
