Hi, I recently purchased a gun from a man who appearantly didn't know it was stolen. He supposedly bought it from a pawn shop, advertised it online and sold it to ME (of course). I have about 500 in the gun. It was transferred through my FFL when he shipped it to me. He emails me and tells me a government agent will contact me in regards to recovery.
1. Am I in trouble?
2. How can I get my money back if the seller doesn't cooperate?
3. What happens next?
Thanks everyone for your advice.
DO NOT call the police until you first talk to an attorney licensed to practice in your jurisdiction!! You need to know what your risks are, along with your obligations!
If you call the PD, you may be placing yourself at their mercy--and what if they have none?
Call the attorney and get advice as to how to best do the right thing.
