Gun Law - Miller's Tale

Here is a scholarly paper on the rather colorful history and the maneuverings behind the Miller decision regarding the NFA. The machinations behind the decision make for interesting reading. Ex from the footnotes:
(“In the State of Arkansas, it is a violation of the law for a man to sell a pistol within that State. . . . This law has been, by the Supreme Court of the State of Arkansas, held constitutional, and you can not lawfully sell a pistol in the State of Arkansas.”)
Don't think this one is still on the books though.

So, can the guy's wife sell his pistol? That way the man doesn't sell the pistol, in Arkansas.
