    If you ask BATF, this is their standard (easy) answer. For example, if you send a gun to an out of state gunsmith for work, if said gunsmith is a FFL holder, he "supposedly" should send it to back to you via FFL if you ask BATF. But 99% of the cases were not played by this "Rule". I have Glock pistols send back to me from Glock directly in more than one occasion.

    It really depend on the FFL, if they "think" they log the subject gun in their book, they'll have to send it to an out of state FFL. But in reality, I doubt they actually did. Other then the shipping record from the carrier, which no one knows what the contain was, there're no records of said gun was in their possession.

    But since said FFL don't know what to do, and they asked BATF, this is their "safe" bet.

    However, all expenses occurred due to buyer's change of heart, should be responsible by the buyer.

    Is it OK to technically break the law if the attorney general says it"s OK?

    Only if you can get diplomatic immunity.

    no. you are confusing how the law relates to you vs. how the law relates to the attorney general. it's two entirely different things. three if you include executive privilege

    It depends on the color of your skin.

    It depends on how many friends you have in high office.

    America is no longer a nation of laws. It is a nation of breaking laws, and a nation of making oppressive laws.
