Wait..... I can buy guns over the iinternet?

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A Tennessee lawmaker says he plans to continue pushing for universal background checks despite a new state law allowing adults to carry firearms without a permit or a background checks.

*

“Without background checks we would have more felons getting guns,” said Stewart. “But the problem is, right now, our background check system has a huge loophole which is you can buy guns on the internet, in what’s called a private transaction without going through a background check.

*****

I've yet to run across a site where I can buy a gun without it being shipped to an FFL, nor have I been to a local yard sale/marketplace website that even allows a person to advertise guns for sale.

  1. Just another douchebag spouting bullshit. It’s become a competition between the political scum. I have only bought one gun over the net and I had to do an FFL and pick it up at a local gun dealers store.

  2. I believe you can get a gun shipped directly to you if you are in the CMP, of course they weed the felons out before they get a membership. And antiques, relics and muzzleloaders can be shipped direct.

  3. Yes you can buy guns over the internet. Just have the seller ship to a gun dealer near you.

  4. I've bought 5 firearms via the internet. EVERY DAMN ONE of them had to ship to an FFL before I received them. The only ones I didn't have to have a "background check" on was when I had my CCW, which in Georgia, was in lieu of the background check... all 3 of those were for C&R rifles. The other 2 purchases were new weapons that had to go through an FFL, which in my case, was a former LEO. I don't have my Florida CCW, and I'm not sure I want to get it.

  5. The old 'make something illegal more...illegal-er'. They spend more time making up additional BS then not enforcing it on the people actually doing all the damage, meanwhile making criminals out of the people who aren't actually causing the problems.

    1. What you say is more proof that legislating should not be a full time job.

  6. The key word is ship. Gunlistings.org is one site that has locals. If it goes across state lines it need to go to an fly. CMP Is a government program so they could be able to do what the want. Collectors and curios license can receive guns over 50 years old.

    I have both bought on sold guns on that site as well as others.

    Key element is whether you are in state or across state line. I usually check for a cow permit before finalizing the sale but that is not a requirement for anything other than pistols.

    2. "...go to an fly."? "...do what the want."? "...bought on sold guns..."? "...check for a cow permit..."?

      C'mon guys turn that damn auto-correct off. It makes you look like a total illiterate.

  7. Well, I’ve bought guns at an auction, at yard sales and at gun shows without a background check. All from private individuals (not FFL dealers). Never got one through the internet without having it go to an FFL dealer, though. Hard to believe, but there was a time in this country when nobody gave a shit if you had a gun or where you got it, as long as you didn’t steal it. Eod1sg Ret

    1. I've sold a couple guns at yard sales here, an AR and a handgun. I see both buyers around town occasionally and always get a big smile and wave from them.

  8. Real story from about 9 months ago. I live in tiny town far outside Seattle and a client called me knowing I have LOTS of guns and he needed one. Now. Real bad. Lived right next door to the riots. Told me "I have tried for 2 days straight on internet and no one will sell to me right away! No one has gunshow loophole that I am told of!" Said he needed to come over and give me cash and I told him of WA State Law that "private sale" must be conducted through a FFL Dealer. Said I had a model or two I could let go of and would take anywhere from 2-3-4-5-6 weeks for him to receive. He was shocked just shocked. Said "but I need a gun today!". And how do I know he is a lifetime card carrying dimmo? Voted for Queen Hillary? Because he believed the lies as to "how easy it is to get a gun" he really believed he could just pay cash and get gunned up and nope. Does not work that way.

    1. I love it when someone who thinks all these gun laws are just great until they bloody their nose running into reality.

  9. I guess I am lucky. We do have a local marketplace site that allows firearms to be sold. https://www.vci-classifieds.com/ad.php

    I have bought and sold firearms from my personal collection in face to face in-state transactions, usually in a local parking lot.

  10. If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it.

    If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth.

    If you tell a lie big often enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.

    If you repeat a lie long enough, it becomes truth.

    If you repeat a lie many times, people are bound to start believing it.

    There's nothing so absurd that if you repeat it often enough, people will believe it.

    Search returns for "repeat a lie".

    Demonrats have been telling the "internet loophole" lie since internet commerce became thing and there's a bunch of uninformed citizens out there who STILL believe it.

  11. Rep. Mike Stewart, House District 52 - either woefully ignorant for a lawmaker to not know fundamental gun law, or a fool, or a liar.
    Or all 3.

    1. Intelligence nor ability are requirements for the job. Like prostitution but better pay and benefits.

      A legislator like this one is just another body for the cause. Consensus builing. Amoral and illiterate is no way to run a country.

    2. And our Jim Cooper comes through again:

      Jumping the gun a bit on the blood-dancing though; the law hes blaming for all the carnage doesn't take effect until July 1st.

  12. Don't forget that democrats constantly have to prove that they are qualified.
    And the qualification needed to be a democrat?
    Be an idiot.

  13. I sold a Glock 19 to a guy on the internet. He is in the Patriot Guard and had a carry permit when we met up for the fact to face transaction. He got an ugly gun and I got cash. Since it is GA there was no need for a receipt. I met the requirement to sell to someone who could legally own a gun in GA. It is possible to buy a gun over the internet.

  14. There is a site called vaguntrader.com for Virginia sales person to person no background check needed for a private sale.

  15. When Oregon still allowed private gun sales without an FFL, I used to use sites like armslist.com to find a seller. We would then arrange a meeting and do the sale. It was using the internet to set up a private face-to-face sale. Several years ago, Oregon required all gun sales to go through an FFL, which means all sales private or not, now have to go through an FFL. Bastards.

    1. According to TheGovernmentAgents:
      https://olis.leg.state.or.us/liz/2015R1/Measures/Overview/SB941

      2015 Oregon senate bill 941 declared criminalizing any firearm transfer to be an "...emergency...".

      [ I am not making this up ]

      According to TheMainStreamMedia, the emergency bill was "...signed into 'law'..." by unelected governess kate 'moonbeam' brown.

      I wasn't there.
      I have zero-zero-zero proof any of that happened.
      The 'two-party system' (1 -- TheGovernmentAgents and 2 -- TheMainStreamMedia) seems to possess a weak grasp of reality...
