If you want to sell, you need to check local and state laws, but as far as Federal law is concerned, you can sell face-to-face to a resident of your own state who is not prohibited from owning a firearm (over 18, no felony convictions, etc.). To sell to someone in another state, you will have to send it to a FFL dealer in the state of the buyer for delivery to the buyer. One way to sell without worrying about all the laws is to sell it to a licensed dealer or have a dealer sell it on commission. Another way is to list your firearms for sale at and then have national exposure for your item.

(in the US) So that the government can conduct a background check on you to determine if you are legally qualified to purchase a firearm.

State laws will vary, with some states requiring a permit to purchase a handgun.
