QUOTE from the link on auction info in post #1:

All firearms will be transferred and picked up at Country Sportsman, 2806 Shorter Ave, Rome, GA 30161. All gun sales are subject to background check and ATF approval.

Okay, so that's how it's going to be legal under Georgia law. I remember reading that State law says that auctions of seized firearms must be limited to FFL dealers. Maybe if the winning "bidder" is an individual, but with a pre-existing understanding that the transfer will go "through" an FFL dealer as a middleman, that's close enough. Anyhow, I don't object. Seems like a reasonable gun-control measure to me.

Also, it prevents the ATF from saying that Floyd County, or any other county or city that collects and dispositions guns regularly as part of their normal criminal justice operations, is "engaging in the business" of dealing in firearms and must itself hold an FFL from the feds.
