Where the prosecution could come is when the gun you sold gets stolen, then used in a crime and tracked back to you as the buyer but you sold without an ffl and background check.
They're not making it illegal to sell a gun person-to-person. They're confirming it illegal to make a business of doing so.

The scenario you're proposing doesn't make you an offender, you've broken no laws (unless, of course, you falsely held yourself out as a dealer).
I didn't say you would be convicted, you might not. That often depends on how deep your pockets are. But years down the road and someone is looking for a scapegoat for the crime....

No, and it's never been that way. There's adequate case law here.
Well if there is adequate case law there then I could retract my last post on how this could come back to bite someone for a personal sale.
