The answer to the "why" is that the judge ordered you to do it that way, likely so he could be sure the guns were really transferred. Were you given 30 days for your failure to follow the judge's order or for something else? Did the dealer refuse to transfer the weapons formally? How did the court find out that you hadn't used a dealer? Did you have a lawyer with you in court when the judge sentenced you to the 30 days?
