Good news America. Gun sales that were forced off of Craigslist have sidled onto Instagram. And for the most part, these transactions are perfectly legal.
It is against the law to purchase a gun for another person or for a dealer to sell to someone prohibited from owning firearms, but most restrictions about sales are loose as a goose.
And transactions online are growing. With Instagram, 2nd Amendment patriots can see the weapon before buying it.
So homicidal maniac floating under the radar, come on down. Power up your computer and get out your credit card.
Just because over 90% of the people want increased background checks doesn’t mean it will happen.
When someone references a school shooting in our country or a toddler killing or being killed by a gun, the specific incident must be sited. Oh the youngster who just died in Texas….. Actually when it ‘s Texas, further specificity is needed.
Let’s review the 2nd Amendment:
A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
So for all the folks interested in starting their own militia, the Congress of the United States has your back. Pshaw about criminals and those suffering from mental illness able to get guns.
Instagram is not considered a consumer site and thus doesn’t have regulations pertaining to purchases. States laws vary in regard to Internet sales.
Senators and Congress Representatives: your move.
