    An angry snowflake protestor goes into a Walmart in Portland OR trying to buy a pistol 'for protection'.

    After learning she had to be 21, pass an extensive background check, provide proof of no mental health issues, and enduring a two week wait period, then going to a different agency to apply for a permit to purchase ammo, and having to first pass a firearms class to even apply for any of the above, the snowflake screamed "*%%$^* FASCIST" and stormed out.

    Now she has seen a glimmer of what it's like. Wait until she wants to get a carry permit/license or wants to buy an NFA item...

    They think you are crazy to want to own a firearm, then want you to prove you aren't crazy to own a firearm. It's a crazy world.

    And they have bought into the BS that is sooo easy to get a firearm. Anyone can just get one in demand whenever they feel like it. Granted, some States it's easier than others but there is still a background check process and limitations on personal sales. Not to mention making sure that firearm no longer has your name associated to it incase the buyer does decide to do something stupid or illegal with it. If you are doing a legal personal sale, you had better be damned sure that person is ok or it could come back to bite you later.

    In TX private sale of rifles/shotguns is unrestricted, no FFL involved. State laws on private sales can be box 'o chocolates variable.

    Don't personally understand the logic behind the seller's liability issue. I sell a car to someone, and they run it into a crowd and kill people, no judge/jury would ever hold me and the mfg liable.

    PA allows private sales on rifles but pistols must go through an FFL so the State Police can store that extra form they are supposed to destroy in a permanent file.

    PA is a confusing State on how they do things, fairly conservative and freedom loving one some things and big brother, nanny state on others. PA also has it's own background check system run by the State Police. Lord knows what kind of record keeping they store in that. I would rather just not chance it.

    I've been in the personal liability ring already. One of my guns got stolen and ended up in the hands of a meth dealing felon. Got a call from a very concerned inspector. Let him know it was stolen, described when it might have been stolen and under what circumstances. My story jibed with what they'd already uncovered. I asked if it had been used and they said they weren't able to say for sure but they had no shootings in the relevant time window that appeared connected so far and that I need not worry about criminal liability anyway. Civil liability is another story but nothing came of that either and wouldn't since I had broken no laws and didn't act negligently.
