  • What is the over/under for how long before a mass shooting is committed by some nut who bought his weapon at this place?

    Just asking questions....

    Probably the same as any other FFL-holder, relative to sales volume.

    I was told there would be no math.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I've been to Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq, and I can say without hyperbole that this is a million times worse than all of them put together.

  • I can understand the neighbors' concern about potential mayhem. If you're going to rob a place that you think is full of guns and people who love them, you are not going to do it with a water pistol and a polite note.

    OTOH, how easy is it to find the street address of an online gun dealer? Is there a public database of licensed gun dealers? I imagine the dealer publishes only a PO box.

    Yes.

    A home-based FFL is probably less-likely to get knocked off than a B&M gun store. A home is going to be more likely to be occupied. And there's no way a small FFL without a physical storefront is going to stock as much merchandise as even a smaller store.

    Assuming that most of the dealers do about the same level of business (high volume ones will be on the far end of a bell curve I bet) and that there are about 250,000 FFLs int he US, and we get a mass shooting every, well, we'll say 2 years.

    That's 500,000 "dealer years" between shootings.

    So, there's your answer. 500,000 years.
  • Say bye bye to guns california. Democraps have a super duper veto-proof majority.
  • I have a garage full of tools and miraculously there isn't a rash of carpentry going in in my neighborhood. This is a non issue.

    People who phrase things like this, along with spelling Microsoft as Micro$oft or Microshaft and Linux as Loonix are emotional children.
  • From what I gather, the main objection is this guy doesn't have a storefront.

    Some towns won't let you obtain a FFL without a storefront; but it looks like this one will. I fail to see how this is a bad thing.

    I know a few guys who do this. There's no point in robbing them then any other home; they don't keep inventory. All guns are shipped to them only when someone buys one.

    I assume you meant "months", not "years".

    Do they do it as a main source of income or just on the side? Do you know how much they make?

    I do not know. I am an atheist, but no law in Kentucky prohibits me from entering a church while carrying a firearm.

    Sources say there's also a higher chance they're armed..
  • I purchased my mossberg from a home based ffl so I am getting a kick....
  • I'm as pro-gun control as anyone else (the 2nd amendment only guarantees a well-regulated militia's right to bear arms, i.e. the police and National Guard troops). But this is a total non-story. This guy is in compliance with the law, whether or not the law is in compliance with the Constitution.
  • Geez, would they rather he sell drugs from the condo? They guy has a legit online business. He's not hiding anything and has all the necessary paperwork.

    His nosy neighbors need to get jobs and mind their own business.
