Skip to comments."Buying a gun online"?

Every TV network is talking about "the loophole that allows anyone to buy a firearm online." Huh? To the best of my knowledge only an FFL can buy or sell a firearm across state lines, and even then, not online. The buyer has to supply a copy of his FFL with the order.
Is there such a thing as "buying a gun over the internet" or is this just another case of media corruption?
Sites like Gunbroker let you buy online and they send it to an FFL dealer of your choice to complete the purchase process.
This is another lie.
It is another hype like the “gunshow loophole”. If you purchase a gun over the Internet you must go through a FFL dealer if it crosses a state line.
The law is even more restrictive than that.
You can not ship your own gun, purchased through a dealer and with the background check, back to the manufacturer for warranty and then receive it when warranty is completed, without both shipments going through a licensed firearms dealer.
So disappointing to every day see Fox talking about “buying a gun over the internet.” They should know better.
Yes, you can buy/pay online, but you can’t accept delivery except through a FFL dealer. So this is a half-truth.
This would ban internet coordination of personal sales.
For instance, if you want to advertise on-line for the local sale of your firearm, that transaction would have to go through an FFL.
You couldn’t just meet and conduct the transaction.
I wouldn’t do it, just for personal safety....but it’s none of the guv’s bidness.
The way I read it,you can’t do a private face to face sale, either, after advertising the firearm on the internet for sale. Without going through an FFL.
You have to ask???!?
Yes, you can buy a gun online. No, you cannot take possession of it until you complete a background check with an FFL.
Of COURSE the media lies. It's ALL they do, any more.
To put simply, there is no such thing as a ‘gun show loophole’ or ‘internet loophole’. If you buy a gun from a dealer at either of these, you still have to go through a standard background check. When you buy online, all you are doing is starting a transfer process to send the firearm to a FFL who then will have you complete the background check.
To repeat. They are lying!
Actually you can and I recently did just that. My wife's Beretta NEOS needed some work due to a recall. We printed out a UPS label provided by Beretta and a UPS driver came to the house and picked it up. When the work was complete, UPS shipped it back. Of course my wife had to be there to pick it up.
It’s the BIG LIE
Anyone surprised ?
Please get your facts straight before posting on forums such as this.
I can only speak for my state, NC, but if it is a long gun and the seller and buyer are from NC, no FFL is required. So if you win an auction in NC, then the private seller can send the long gun directly to you. Also, there is a website called ARMSLIST that is an online bulletin board; which allows you to list your weapon and the buyer calls the seller and makes a deal. Usually in ARMSLIST, you buy locally, so you conduct a private sale. From my understanding of the senate bill, just the fact that you post a listing offering to sell, then it has to go through an FFL. Additionally, we know that this is the first step on a slippery slope.
This whole line of defending the Dems’ gun-grabbing is specifically aimed at Americans who don’t know anything about guns and have never purchased a gun. The only way your can buy a gun without a background check is from a private individual, face to face, and you both live in the same state. Nobody is going to mail you a gun. It MUST be mailed to a federally licensed gun dealer. (You can buy some specific parts through the mail but that’s because they’re not considered a firearm.) Nobody at a gun show is going to sell you a gun without a background check. Your sale isn’t worth losing their license, their entire business and spending time in the federal slammer!
Another lie. More propaganda.
You cannot ship a gun to a residence unless the resider has a FFL and has filled out the proper paperwork.
You can only ship to FFL dealers.
Any legit company (Gander Mountaing for example)is not going to risk their license to ship anyone a gun.
Add to that... the FFL dealer must fax approp paperwork to the selling company before the seller will ship.
> This is another lie.
To promote their own lie. They’re just trying to make it appear anyone can buy a gun online without a background check to get the liberal knee jerk reaction they want. This administration spews propaganda mind attacks out to the masses on a daily basis. If only they would work so hard to manage their own budget instead of trying to find more ways to pry money from our hands with the same urgency.
