Postal Barriers

Many gun control advocates are saying we need background checks for internet sales. I have a question. If you buy a gun on line, who's going to deliver it to you?

The USPS, UPS, Fedex and DHL will only deliver a gun purchased from a non FFL holder to a licensed gun dealer (or manufacturers or collectors, etc., all with federal licenses).
They will ship from an FFL holder to an individual with no such license.

So where is the loophole here? The FFL holder has to run a background check when he or she sells a gun or when he or she receives one to pass on to a non licensed purchaser. Either way, the background check is performed.


If the gun control advocates are merely complaining that the internet merely helps buyers find sellers find each other for a face to face buy on the black market, welcome to the 21st Century party, pal.
