"Shipping guns to consumers would be a logistical nightmare for the U.S. Postal Service, she says."
Give me a freakin break. The law is clear, at least in most states, you can buy a gun on line in another state either private or retail sale, but the gun can only be legally shipped to an FFL dealer where you then complete any required purchase paperwork and/or background check. These on line cross state purchases happen countless times every single day and and there is no logistical nightmare for the USPS or UPS or FedEx or whatever. It is no more complex to ship a gun for these guys than it is a box of candy. Again, the anti gunners show their complete ignorance of firearms and the facts.
"Amazon.com may be the only place left in America where you can't buy a gun," says Abby Spangler, a gun control advocate and founder of ProtestEasyGuns.com.
Shipping guns to consumers would be a logistical nightmare for the U.S. Postal Service, she says. Under federal law, firearms purchased online must be sent to a licensed firearms dealer, where buyers are subject to background checks. "
How exactly would it be a logistical nightmare to ship guns directly to purchasers? It's illegal to buy a gun through the mail. So it wouldn't be shipped to the purchaser. If Amazon sold guns, they would be shipped to a firearms dealer just like a gun bought anywhere else online.
1. Kroger, Big Star, Food Lion.....hell any food chain or grocery store.
2. Barnes & Nobel, Davis Kidd, Walden......also any book store.
3. Pick a local gas station...yep... no guns.
4. Office Depot, Office Max, Walgreens, Dollar Store, etc. etc. .....go guns.
(I could keep going but I hope you get the point.)
As usual the person who doesn't know talks out of their ****....the only places to buy guns in this country remains, just like always...A Sporting Goods store (gasp), A Pawn Shop, direct from the manufacturer, or at a gun show. Too many people have this vision of America where everyone has AR15's and illegal stockpiles of ammo, no the Ak-47's are not in the soup section.......they're next to the frozen yogurt.
Can't buy guns on eBay either...just parts and accessories.
Other sites out there, though.
2nd amendment still on the books...last I looked.
Another tremendous article from MSN -- NOT!
