My opinion is based on my understanding of the word contiguous
Quote:
1. Sharing a common boundary: adjacent, adjoining, conterminous, next. See near/far/distance.
2. Not far from another in space, time, or relation: adjacent, close, immediate, near, nearby, nigh, proximate. Idioms: at hand, under one's nose, within a stone's throw, within hailing distance. See near/far/distance.
Which apparently differs from ATF's understanding
Quote:
From ATF P 5300.4 -- Federal Firearms Regulation Reference Guide:

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
B. UNLICENSED PERSONS
(B2) From whom may an unlicensed person acquire a firearm under the GCA?
A person may only buy a firearm within his own State except that he may buy
a rifle or shotgun, in person, at a licensee's premises in any State,
provided the sale complies with State laws applicable in the State of sale
and the State where the purchaser resides.
[18 U.S.C 922(a)(3) and (5), 922(b)(3), 27 CFR 178.29]
