I have a few questions concerning the legality of long gun purchases.

First off, is it legal to purchase a long gun from an FFL if you are an out of state resident (example: What if I, a Louisiana resident, wanted to buy a rifle in Tennesse)?

Secondly, is it legal to purchase a long gun from a private person if you reside in another state (example: Louisiana me, wanting to buy a rifle from a private person in Tennesse), or must you go through an FFL?

I've been under the impression that both were legal, but I'd like to reference the knowledgeable crowd here.

It is legal unless there is something in either state's law that prohibits it.

Secondly, is it legal to purchase a long gun from a private person if you reside in another state (example: Louisiana me, wanting to buy a rifle from a private person in Tennesse), or must you go through an FFL?

No. Must go through an FFL.
