People Are Shocked to Discover You Can't Purchase a Firearm Online
Leftists, and therefore most in the media, think it's easier to buy a gun than it is to buy pants. Anyone who is not half a retard knows that isn't the case. Yet the talking point persists (see Barack Obama Claims Americans can Buy Machine Guns Online and Cory Booker, David Hogg Think Toy Guns Are More Regulated than Real Guns). Joke's on you, guy/gal/xi who needs to protect your hoard of toilet paper and hand soap. You cannot just buy a firearm online. Which, at least according to this online retailer, more than a few assclowns are attempting.
Here at Omaha Outdoors, we’ve been inundated with inquiries from out-of-state folks – many from California – asking if we can ship them a gun directly. The answer is, of course, no. Despite what politicians and many in popular media claim, you can’t buy a gun online and have it shipped to your house. Well, you could, if you were a federally licensed firearm dealer (or federally licensed curio and relic collector) and your home was your place of business.
At this point you know the writer of this explanation was in danger of rolling his eyes out of his head.
Other than that, no, you can’t buy a gun online and have it shipped, especially across state lines, to your home.
What you’ll need to do to buy a gun from us is order it on our online store and select an FFL, a federally licensed firearm dealer, during the online checkout process. We ship the gun to the dealer near you – presuming the firearm and its accessories are legal in your area – and you visit the dealer to fill out the required ATF Form 4473 and undergo the federal and any applicable state background checks.
Like, these are basics most gun-owners know, but this poor guy has to explain it to the n00bs like they're five.
Some states might require a waiting period – sure to be a sore point at a time when people feel the need for a gun to protect themselves NOW. Only then can you take your new firearm home.
No, buying a gun is not as easy as liberal politicians make it sound. Unless you're buying it out of someone's trunk. In that case, you're probably also purchasing a ski mask and a canvas sack with a dollar sign on the side. If you'd like to buy a gun LEGALLY, however, it's not something you can just order off the internet. The process is actually pretty well regulated. In the instances when that process may have failed, there's usually a government employee responsible.
Remember this when this COVID-hullabaloo is over. Once people use their last roll of toilet paper and squirt their last squirt of sanitizer, the Left is going to go right back to scaring you about evil boomsticks. Some of you will hopefully know better. Others...
