How to Pawn a Gun in Mesa
Everything you need to know about pawning a gun in the city of Mesa.
Mesa, Arizona

When you pawn a gun in Mesa Arizona, there are special rules and regulations for the transaction — just like any sale or transaction relating to gun ownership. The pawn shop has to record certain data to ensure proper monitoring of the gun. The data can also be used to ensure that the gun has not been stolen or that it will not fall into the wrong hands.

Here’s what you need to know about pawning a gun in Mesa Arizona:

Personal Data

When you bring your gun in to get a pawn loan, the Mesa pawn shop will record personal data about you, such as your name, age and address. You won’t need to show your license or other proof of ownership, but a record of the transaction will be maintained. Information about the gun, such as the serial number, will be checked against a database to ensure that it has not been stolen or used in illegal activity.

Record of the Transaction

Typically, when a firearm is bought or sold, Form 4473 (https://www.atf.gov/files/forms/download/atf-f-4473-1.pdf) must be filled out to record the transaction. The form asks for extensive information, such as whether the person buying the gun has a criminal record, uses drugs or has a mental illness. However, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms has ruled that (https://www.atf.gov/files/regulations-rulings/rulings/atf-rulings/atf-ruling-76-15.pdf) the form is not necessary when pledging a gun for a pawn loan. The pawn shop must simply make a record of the transaction.

Should you forfeit the gun and it is sold to someone who is unlicensed, a Form 4473 must be completed. Should you try to redeem the gun without having a license, Form 4473 must be completed. Should someone else redeem your loan for you without having a gun license, Form 4473 must be completed.

Pawn Shop Reporting

Whether the shop asks you to fill out a Form 4473 or not, it must make regular reports about the number of guns it buys, sells, or pawns.
Authorities use this data to monitor the movement of handguns, pistols, revolvers and other types of guns. Information about the model, serial number and more will be included in these reports.
