Some say it’s a major loophole in the law. At gun stores, you have to get a background check before you can buy a weapon. But online in most states, anyone from law-abiding citizens to dangerous criminals – even terrorists – can get just about any weapon they want, no questions asked
Hundreds of thousands of guns are for sale, on hundreds of websites. We responded and set up meetings at popular shopping malls. We bought everything from a police-grade pistol to a semiautomatic assault rifle. We did it over and over again, even hinting that our buyer is a criminal.
Remember, at gun stores, background checks are required, but online – nothing. Believe it or not, in most states it’s completely legal.

...crazy country and a absolutly unnecessary privilege kinda ironic that you keep your freedom to buy a gun but you accept to get xrayd (because of the guns)...idiocracy
