My reading of the online ATF site seems to indicate that it is legal to loan a firearm to a resident of another state "for temporary use for lawful sporting purposes". Am I correct in my interpretation?

this may seem obvious, but the person has to legally be able to own a firearm as well. such as felons, minors, or domestic violence convictions (that part is from my area)...
