I'm not planning on pawning any of my guns, but drove by a pawn shop and got to thinking how all the new laws work in this realm of the market. I figure purchases are same rules apply.

But what about bringing in a gun to pawn, does the store now have to pay a transfer fee as you are transferring it to the ownership of the shop? What about background check paperwork too? If they are an FFL does any of that apply?

What about if you are pawning for them to hold, do transfers apply, and if you go back to 'buy back' your held item transfer fees again? Background checks and class passage paperwork?

Same questions but with consignments.

Are pawn shops even dealing in guns anymore?

Just some thoughts.

If fewer pawn shops are dealing with guns, that means guns are more likely to be diverted to the black market. #1639

I don't have access to my store email but basically they mostly follow the same thing as a regular dealer. There was some exemption for like one thing, but I don't remember exactly what it was. I kind of just skimmed it.
Getting a consignment gun back is the same as if you had sold it to the store.

To keep it simple, the only time you don't have to do a background check is when you're getting your gun back when it was transferred for gunsmithing. And by the way, any work on a gun is considered gunsmithing by the ATF. If you pay someone to take a can of spraypaint to your rifle, that person is doing gunsmithing and since you paid for it, that person is required to have a FFL.

If a pawn shop deals in guns then they have to have a FFL. A pawn only is a Type 02 FFL. Anyone selling guns as a business has to have a Federal Firearms License.
