As already stated check with the state law in Georgia......I bought my wife a 38 snub for her birthday. We both have CCW and I want her to carry it and be registered on it. First question does she need to be the registered owner in order to carry and how do I transfer it to her if she does?
IF the father in law gave the money for the gift then yes it may be a straw purchase. But if I buy you a gift with my money it is not a straw purchase. Only when I buy it for you when you can't legally own one or if you give me the money to buy it for you because you can't do it yourself. A straw purchase or nominee purchase is any purchase wherein an agent agrees to acquire a good or service for someone who is unable or unwilling to purchase the good or service himself, and the agent transfers the goods/services to that person after purchasing them. Straw purchases are legal except in cases where the ultimate receiver of goods or services uses those goods or services in the commission of a crime with the prior knowledge of the straw purchaser, or if the ultimate possessor is not legally able to purchase the goods/services. In some cases, the agent in the straw purchase may receive money or recompense from the ultimate possessor.Do I remember correctly that someone recently purchased a gun, and then gave it as a gift to his father-in-law, after which he was arrested and charged with having made a "straw purchase"? I don't even remember in which state this happened.
