D. Special instructions relating to the sale of firearms to online buyers: By Federal law, firearms may only be shipped to a Federal Firearms License (FFL) dealer. If you do not have an FFL, you must make arrangements with an FFL dealer in your state to process the transfer and receive the firearm on your behalf. Your local FFL dealer will be responsible for performing your background check to make sure that you are eligible under Federal, state and local law to own such a firearm and for adhering to any other Federal, state and local laws affiliated with firearms transactions. If unsure about such regulations, please consult your local FFL dealer. Once you have made transfer arrangements with your local FFL dealer, have them send a signed copy of their license by mail, e-mail or fax to the owner or auctioneer acting as the agent for the owner of the firearm. Please make sure that the dealer includes a note with their license indicating your name and an identification of the firearm that you purchased. Once the owner or auctioneer, as the case may be, has received payment and a copy of your local FFL dealer's license, the item may be shipped to your local FFL dealer. You understand and agree that the Auction Network neither purchases firearms for resale nor takes possession of firearms on consignment for sale in connection with the online purchase of firearms on the Auction Network Site. Regarding the sale of firearms in connection with the Auction Network Site, Auction Network is only facilitating the establishment of a purchase price on behalf of the owner or auctioneer acting as the agent for the owner of the firearm, as the case may be, and the owner of the firearm is solely responsible for the consummation of the sale.
