[QUOTE=rjrivero;30718]No "license" is needed. You apply for a Transfer Tax Stamp, and upon approval you get your toys.
At least not in every State!.
You actually submit a Completed Form 4's in Duplicate, 2 Finger Print Cards
along with a Cert. Of Compliance.
Once submitted, you wait until the FBI approves the return on the Print Cards, and the ATF on the rest. Once approved, the Owner of the NFA item will be sent an Approved Form 4 with the Appropriate Tax Stamp applied. They are then contacted to pick up their Firearm and fill out a Form 4473,"If from a Dealer".
No FFL/SOT License is Required for "Most states", unless it is a "Post Sample" firearm. And those Firearms "Must" be disposed of prior to the SOT expiring. It sounds complicated, but after 11 yrs. in Ohio Sellling NFA, you get used to it.
Some States do require an NFA owner to have a "License", but a Non-Dealer C&R Lic. is sufficient to satisfy that requirement. I hope this clarifies things for you.
