Mississippi penalizes:

  • Any person who knowingly solicits, persuades, encourages or entices a licensed dealer or private seller of firearms or ammunition to transfer a firearm or ammunition under circumstances which the person knows would violate federal or state law; or
  • Any person who provides to a licensed dealer or private seller of firearms or ammunition what the person knows to be materially false information with intent to deceive the dealer or seller about the legality of a transfer of a firearm or ammunition.1

“Materially false information” means information that portrays an illegal transaction as legal or a legal transaction as illegal.2

Mississippi prohibits any person from knowingly or intentionally transferring, or attempting to transfer, a stolen firearm.3

Mississippi has no other laws aimed at firearms trafficking.
