You can’t ‘order’ a gun by mail
I have seen many letters and opinion pieces on the subject of online or internet gun sales. Most of what I've seen would make you think you can order a gun and it will be shipped to your doorstep with no background checks.
This is misleading. You can buy a gun on the internet but it has to be shipped to a federally license firearms dealer along with all the paper work you’ve had to fill out and send with your order. The FLF will do the prescribed state background check on you and if you are cleared then you can pick up your gun from the dealer — in person with adequate identification. No one else can pick it up.
You do not just “order” a gun and then wait for the U.S. mail to deliver it to you. Any other information to the contrary is false, and if a newspaper, magazine or television personality or a politician tells you differently they are lying to you.
