State and federal laws concerning transfer of firearms in Q&A form

Post by Joe Smith on Sun Feb 14, 2016 3:54 am

I have put together some information in Q&A form to help everyone understand laws concerning the transfer of firearms in North Carolina. The owner and administrators of this Facebook Group urge everyone to do their due diligence in the process of transferring firearms in an effort to keep weapons out of the hands of people who are not allowed by law to possess them.

Question:

If I transfer, by sale or trade, a handgun to an individual whom I have known for many years and who does not have a criminal record, do I still need to require a purchase permit or concealed carry permit?

Answer:

Yes. North Carolina General Statute ยง 14-402 does not make any exception for the receipt or purchase of a handgun from a private individual as opposed to a firearms dealer. Therefore, a pistol purchase or North Carolina concealed carry permit is necessary before the transfer of any handgun can take place.

*North Carolina also allows the transfer of a handgun to sworn law enforcement officers upon receipt of a valid and current Agency Identification card.

Question:

How old must I be to purchase a handgun, shotgun, or rifle?

Answer:

To purchase a handgun from a federally licensed firearms dealer, an individual must be twenty-one (21) years of age or older. The age at which a person can purchase a shotgun or rifle from a licensed dealer is eighteen (18). Please note that although an eighteen (18), nineteen (19), or twenty (20) year old may be issued a pistol purchase permit, they would not be able to purchase a handgun with it from a licensed firearms dealer but could purchase a handgun from a private person.

Question:

How do I get a handgun purchase permit?

Answer:

Pistol purchase permits may be obtained from the sheriff where the purchaser or receiver resides. An application must be submitted to the sheriff by the individual who desires to obtain a pistol permit, and must satisfy the requirements of North Carolina law.
