HELLO? It's only you who speaks of first sale.

The FSF is not talking about giving (or selling or whatever) your copy
(read first sale), but copy distribution.

You can't give a copy unless you have the right to do it.

The GNU GPL sets the conditions for you to have that right. Nothing else
grants it to you.
