Virginia law on private handgun sales
I'm trying to find the Virginia law on private handgun sales between individuals within the state, between two Virginia residents.
I'm not talking about the law which addresses sales of handguns which are curios or relics between individuals, I'm looking for a law addressing the sale of modern-day handguns.
I know it's legal, because before buying a Glock from another Virginia citizen last year, I called the Virginia State Police and they said it's perfectly legal and there's no background checking or any kind of paperwork. Their words, "Just buy the gun as if you were buying any other item. We don't need to know about. Get a sales receipt, if you like, but it's not required. The seller must verify that the buyer is a Virginia resident."
But I can't find the law in writing that says all this. Can someone help me find it? Is the absence of a law regulating the private sale of modern-day handguns between individuals, implied permission to do so?
(Again, I'm not looking for the law which only addresses the sale of multiple handguns which are curios or relics. I already found that one.)
