Where Can You Legally Sell a Gun in Amarillo?
OK, gun ownership is a hot topic in Texas. Of course, it is. We have the right to own guns and we have the right to sell guns. Yes. This is Texas of course.
So if you have a gun that you want to sell what can you do with it? Can you just drive your car to a corner parking lot and sell it like they do fruit, vegetables, and rugs? Can you just sell if to your neighbor if you want?
In our great state, we can sell it to another individual. I would definitely be careful who you sell it to. The last thing you want is for them to use it illegally and now that is coming back to haunt you. I know, I watch way too much Investigation Discovery Channel. Hey, though, it happens.
So if you are going to sell it to a friend or a neighbor make sure you really know them well enough to trust them. Here are some things you want to consider about selling a gun. Do not sell a firearm in these situations:
- If you believe, or even have reason to believe that the person you are selling to would not be able to own a firearm. I mean if they are a felon that would not be good for you.
- If the person you are selling to is under the age of 18.
- If the person lives in a different state.
You are not required to run a background check in the state of Texas but heck it might be worth your own peace of mind to do so. You can get more information on doing that HERE.
You don't even need a license to sell a gun here in Texas. Which I do find weird because kids need one to sell lemonade. Oh, Texas, am I right?
You can also sell it to a pawn shop. We have a lot of them here in Amarillo. Or heck, we have enough Gun and Knife shows that show up at the Amarillo Civic Center. It might not be a bad idea to check that out as well.
I am just that person who would want to make sure that a gun I sold will in no way tied to me. Again, yes, I watch too much Investigation Discovery Channel. I know it.
