Federal law requires that all dealers ensure that a lock is included with all handguns. Nevada law requires that the transaction is handled as if it was a gun from their own inventory. Technically, I would say the gun shop owner is right. The law forbids him from transferring the gun without including a lock.
Federal law requires that a lock be with a handgun at the time of transfer. It does not require the transfer dealer to sell or otherwise supply the lock. The seller may supply the lock, or the buyer may bring a lock. Any of these satisfies the federal requirement.
