Internet Gun Sales

I can’t believe how many times I’ve read in print news media or heard on TV news programs or on the radio that expanded background checks are necessary to prevent  “internet gun sales” as though a person could buy a gun (that takes regular bullets) from some web site and have it shipped directly to himself.  Out in the open, that kind of transaction is nonexistent.  Let me repeat.  No one can legally do that today in the USA and no one ever could.

Yes, armed robberies are illegal yet there are some.  Burglaries are illegal yet they occur also.  I suppose there may be some “brown bag” gun sales from web sites where guns may be surreptitiously smuggled thru the mail directly to the end customer thereby avoiding a background check, but expanding the background check system will have a zero effect on this criminal activity.

It is bewildering how this myth ever got started about internet gun sales but I hope to never again have this fairy tale presented to me in newspapers or magazines or on the radio or TV.
