Under federal law, the estate, and the Auctioneer acting as its agent, must not knowingly sell or otherwise dispose of firearms or ammunition to a person who:
1) is under indictment for, or has been convicted in any court of, a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding 1 year;
2) is a fugitive from justice;
3) is an unlawful user of or addicted to any controlled substance;
4) has been adjudicated as a mental defective or has been committed to a mental institution;
5) is an alien illegally or unlawfully in the United States or an alien admitted to the United States under a nonimmigrant visa;
6) has been discharged from the Armed Forces under dishonorable conditions;
7) was a citizen of the United States and has renounced his or her citizenship;
8) is subject to a court order that restrains the person from harassing, stalking or threatening an intimate partner or child of such intimate partner; or
9) has been convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence.
In addition, for estate auctions, where the estate is legally the “seller,” the buyer must reside in the same state as the estate or a federal firearms licensee must act as an intermediary for the firearms to be transferred.

ABLE AUCTIONS FIREARMS POLICY

A HAND GUN PERMIT, CCW OR FFL PERMIT IS REQUIRED TO BUY ANY HAND OR LONG GUN.

A BUYER WITH A HAND GUN PERMIT MAY BUY ONE HANDGUN AND/OR ANY NUMBER OF LONG GUNS.
A BUYER WITH A CONCEALED CARRY PERMIT OR FFL MAY BUY ANY NUMBER OF LONG OR HANDGUNS.

After discussions with the Guilford County Sheriffs Department regarding the sale of firearms at auction, a hand gun permit OR a Concealed Carry Weapon Permit (CCW) will now be required for all firearms sold at our auctions.

We are taking this measure to insure the safety of our buyers, seller and Able Auctions, LLC. The law states that you must have a permit for any hand gun purchased, but we are extending it to all guns, hand guns & long guns. (There is one exception, you can purchase one hand gun and unlimited long guns on one permit).

Should you buy a gun at our auction and not have a permit, we will hold it until the permit is acquired. We hope you understand that making our auctions a pleasant, rewarding above all else safe experience is our primary concern.

Thank You,
Virgil Thomas

Okay, let me see if I can explain this so that the misunderstandings will stop. We are WELL aware that there is no permit required BY LAW to purchase a rifle or shotgun. There is only a permit required to purchase a handgun BY LAW. WE have extended this to include rifles and shotguns, not the city, state or country. US! Able Auctions!

It is against federal law to sell a gun of any description to a felon. In order to know for sure whether a person has a criminal record, there must be a background check before the sale of a long gun. This IS required by law. WE HAVE NO WAY OF DOING THIS BACKGROUND CHECK!  Therefore, we (Able Auctions) require you to go and get a pistol, or gun permit or Concealed Carry Permit to purchase ANY gun at our auctions. The Sheriffs department will do the background check, issue the permit and you may purchase the gun.

This is being done to insure that neither we (Able Auctions) or the seller we represent is breaking the law by selling a weapon to a felon or person of questionable character. Thereby protecting ourselves and our sellers from lawsuits and protecting our family, your family, our customers, our friends and our neighbors from these guns ending up in the hands of bad folks.
