How To Buy A Gun Online – Part 1 Of 3-1926年属相�

UnCategorized So you want to buy a gun online? You’re in luck! There are dozens of websites out there prepared to supply you with whatever gun you’re looking for. Whether it’s a rifle or shotgun, semi-auto pistol or revolver, or even a Class III item like a machinegun, it can be found on the internet. The only thing keeping you from enjoying eternal firearms bliss is that you don’t know how to buy a gun online. I can understand if you’re nervous or intimidated by the idea – there are rules, and you don’t want to get ripped off. But I can help you with that. Not to be indelicate or rude, but the first question that needs to be answered is: Are you legally allowed to buy a gun? Generally speaking, if you are over the age of 18 and NOT a convicted felon, you can purchase any kind of long gun (shotguns and rifles). If you are over the age of 21 and NOT a convicted felon, you can purchase both handguns and long guns. That’s generally speaking. While not usually the case, there may be additional rules specific to your state. For example, some states don’t allow anyone with a domestic violence conviction (even a misdemeanor) to own a gun. Next, you should figure out what kind of gun you want. What are you going to do with that gun? Are you a hunter? Is it for target shooting? Or is it for self-defense? Knowing what you want before you start looking for a gun is important, because there are still states out there that have funny ideas about your right to be armed, that have prohibitions on certain classes of weapons. In other words, the purchase of some guns may be illegal where you live. For example, California only permits the sale of handguns that are on the State Attorney General’s drop-test list. This is a list of approved handguns that, after fees are paid, is supposed to pass a "drop-test". Personally, I think it’s a bureaucratic end-run around the Second Amendment under the thin guise of "safety". You decide. Some cities have .plete bans on handguns. Chicago bans all handguns, for example. In New Jersey, the sale of an air gun is treated like the sale of a firearm. Knowing not just what you want, but whether it’s legal to buy is important. So how do you find out if the type of gun you want is legal to buy in the state you live in? And how do you know if YOU are legally able to purchase a gun? Great question! The answer is surprisingly easy. Visit your local gun shop. Every gun shop is required to have an FFL or Federal Firearms License. This is a license issued by the BATFE (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives), that permits a person or business to deal guns. An FFL can legally transfer ownership of a gun from one party to another, and that’s important if you’re going to be buying a gun online. Any gun you purchase is going to be shipped to an FFL holder you specify. Make friends with the folks at your local gun shop. They know the rules and regulations specific to the area that you’re living, and they’ll keep you out of trouble about what you can, or can’t buy. Word of warning – there are a few gun stores out there that think the internet is just a fad, and can’t be bothered to handle transfers of guns bought on the internet. Many of these gun store owners think that the internet is "stealing" business away from them – instead of providing them with a steady stream of new customers. There are fewer and fewer of these kinds of close-minded businessmen out there, but you may have the unpleasant experience of running into one. If you do, slowly back away, quietly apologize for disturbing their slumber, and take a picture of their store. You will be looking at a genuine dinosaur, a relic from the past, on its way to a date with extinction. Then go find another gun store that appreciates your business. If you have a problem finding someone locally who is willing to do the transfer for your internet gun purchase, most major gun websites have an FFL list of some sort .prised of FFL holders throughout the U.S. who, for a modest fee, will do your transfer for you. Also, before you try to buy a gun online, it’s a good idea to actually meet your local FFL holder in person and shake hands. You are, after all, buying a gun! Before the seller ships the gun, it’s a good idea to meet that person in the flesh and introduce yourself. Let them know you’ll be having someone send them a gun for the transfer. That’ll also help avoid the un.fortable surprise of the FFL holder having a strange gun arrive at their doorstep. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
