Buying A Gun

Gun laws vary from state to state.  Although each state has different laws which pertain to buying a gun, there are few gun laws that all states generally follow. In most states there is a minimum age in which a person can legally purchase a gun. Lastly, all states require a gun license prior to the purchase of a gun. All states also require a background check and a clean legal record. Common gun laws also include: requiring a hunting certificate when buying a gun, such as a rifle; purchasing proper carrying cases, and properly storing the guns when the gun is not being used.

Gun laws which vary by state are not federal laws and are there for enforced and regulated by state police and state governments.  Within state laws, there are also specific laws which pertain to certain gun use; for example hunting laws.
