I'm considering purchasing and open carrying a firearm and wish to clarify the laws before going any further.
What conditions would I be required to meet in order to legally make a private purchase of a handgun from an associate who lives and is a resident in Utah?
Assuming you live outisde Utah, 18 USC 922 makes it a crime for your friend to transfer the handgun to you, and crime for you to bring the handgun out of utah after you receive it.
You need to broker the deal thru gun dealers in both states if you wan tto obey federal law.
