ok i know i have gone over this once but im gunna do a new thread soo i can get it all in one place . im 17 my mom wants to gift down a handgun to me . a gun dealer in new hampshire said she is responsable for that handgun until i am 21 of age but people here say 18 i can legally take ownership . my mom will only gift one down to me if i take possession and ownership of the handgun at 18 . for example if i get in trouble at 18 with that handgun does she get in trouble or just me? if it is gifted down . do i take full responsability of the hand gun at 18? can it go under my name at 18? i know you have to be 18 to purchase a handgun . im soo confused . i need the statute for possesion of a handgun . heres another situation if im 18 i can buy a handgun from a new hampshire resident? i know people have asnwered it before but please again soo i can have it in one spot . i know federal law says i can buy a handgun by a private resident at 18 but does new hampshire state law say i can? basicaly mom says she will buy me a hand gun now 2 months from my 18th b day if she is not legally responsable for it when i hit 18 . she doesint want to get arrested for it or in trouble in any way if i do something dumb or get arrested for gifting it down to me as a minor which i told her gifting down to her own kids is legal
so im going to try to summeraize it
i want a handgun to have in my home for protection until i am 18 and start open carrying at 18 and have my mom not be responsible at all when i turn 18 of that handgun . is there any where i can get legal advice for cheap or free? attorney generals office wont help at all .
First of all I'm so lost here so please help me to try and understand what in gods name your talking about. In one of your first posts here you state that your going to be getting a firearm from one of your parents. Then in another post you go on to say how you need all this information on how to buy a firearm because your parents will not buy you one and how your mom is so anti gun. You are now saying she is going to buy you one after all? All I have to say is what the hell is going on? You have told this forum so many different story's I can no longer make out what's the truth and what's a line of BS!
This forum is a place to get information from other memebers who take time to help you with your problems. It's not a place to have people do all your leg work for you. If you have looked for information on your own and can not find it that's one thing but posting here because you do not feel like looking for it COME ON! Point in case your post asking what stores carry firearm books. Really you could not find any information while running a GOOGLE search?
As I have said before the AG office will not help matters such as this or other laws, they will only read them back to you as they are written. Second the firearm will not be in your name because you do not have to regsiter your firearms in the state of NH. Third why would your mom be so worried about you doing something stupid with a firearm if your just using itfor home protection as well as for protection outside of the home? The odds of you having to use your firearm in self defenseareto raretoeven bother posting the numbers.
So I have to ask why do you really want to carry a firearm? In your second or third post you go on to say what your going to carry " two-three knifes,a firearm a taser and police scanner and more". So again I feel the need to ask why do you feel the need to carry so many weapons?
