    How does a 21 yea old hop online and just by an AK-47!?

    If you haven't caught the latest, a man in Texas decided to shoot up a Walmart with an AK-47 he purchased online.

    These guns have very high restrictions and stipulations yet somehow he bypassed them all?? I don't understand the gun purchase process in America online but it seems like something needs to be fixed here cause getting a hold of this kind of gun should not be this simple.

    Does anyone know the actual process of buying a gun legally online and what he could have done to get his hands on this kind of gun? I am not even sure if it was legal. These guns have to be modified to even be sold in America.

    You cannot simply buy a gun online and have it delivered to your house.
    The MSM makes it seem that way, but it's a complete and utter lie used to further a narrative that gun laws are super loose in America.

    The way it works is like this.
    You go to Amazon.
    You "buy" the gun there.
    You then select a licensed gun dealer you want the gun you just "bought" to be delivered to.
    You go to said gun shop and purchase the gun there. No money is given or even exchanged via Amazon. That's illegal.

    In Virgnia, if you want to buy a gun, you need
    2 forms of legal identification. Drivers license, Social Security card, passport, military ID, or copy of your birth certificate.
    For each gun you buy, you fill out a background check. The gun shop then put that info into a gov't database.
    If your info comes up green, you just bought a gun.
    If it comes up red, you leave the store.

    Buying a gun online isn't nearly as simple as the MSM loves to portray it as.
    They purposely leave our most information to make people think you can just buy guns on Amazon.
    It's infuriating, because it doesn't help anything, doesn't solve anything, and makes people fear that America has super loose gun laws, which makes a lot of people demand stricter laws. We have universal background checks, but that's one of the things Liberals demand...they're just too stupid to realize we already have them.

    The version he used was a civilian, semi-automatic variant. It's no different than hundreds of other semi-auto rifles and no more dangerous than them. The name "AK-47" is the frame of the gun, but this isn't the famous fast-shooting Hollywood movie version you're thinking of.

    I agree with all the points you're making in your post about gun control narratives and such...but I have a license to do exactly what you're describing. It's called a C&R License. It allows you to register your home address as a location to receive firearms for your personal collection (i.e. you can't sell them or run a gun shop out of your garage with this). I've literally purchased a handgun on Gunbroker.com and received it in my mailbox. It is true that the average person can't do this, but a $30 application/background check will allow you to. You can only ship/receive firearms that are 50+ years old or considered "historically significant" using this license, so it's not like you can get a 2019 space gun or anything.

    Again, I'm not trying to contradict your points, but just pointing out that buying guns online to your doorstep is possible in the USA for the Average Joe and I've done it. I 100% believe that this should not change, btw. I have yet to see one of my guns float out the window and harm anyone. This whole mass shooting thing is a mental health issue, not a firearm issue imo.

    I am out of the loop with how this all works, clearly. Thanks for informing me, God knows I won't get this from news media anymore LOL

    I did some research into this guy's background and everything the media is pushing is a lie or not the entire truth.

    His father is some kind of hippy Jewish man who focuses on natural healing. He was affiliated with the John of something or other where the leader got busted in Brazil for human trafficking. The shooter himself was likely a Jewish man, not a white man and there is a chance he may have been sexually abused. There are too many holes here but one thing is clear... He got the gun from someone he knows, he is not a White Supremacist, and he had emotional/mental problems.

    Huh. I wasn't aware of that. That's really interesting, actually. Thanks for the info!
    @KorinKitty: Sorry if I came off as rude, I just hate the narrative the MSM has painted every mass shooting as. It's disingenuous, and revolting.
    Not to mention the countless idiots who blame the NRA for every shooting. Even though they are one of the biggest advocates for background checks and gun safety.

    No need to apologize I get what you were saying, I know they lie to people. I did the research for stats on gun violence. Most of it happens in poverty-stricken areas and is a result of black on black crime. No one even talks about that because of fears of racism. There was just a mass shooting in Chicago went ignored by most MSM networks which to me, gives the message that these people's lives don't matter.

    And that's a damn shame. Imagine how genuinely useful the media could be if they went back to reporting the full details of an event rather than how you should feel about the event with strategically redacted details. Anyhow, post or send me a PM next time you feel that you're being misled regarding firearms and I'll do my best to clear it up. Guns are already dangerous as fuck & perceived to be scary by the average person without people lying/misinforming about them.

    Yes, what you read was true and it's an even bigger shame than my point above. They would rather focus on the docile law-abiding firearm owners than criminal firearm ownership because it tends to be too touchy of an issue or worse yet, it's more or less accepted as normal. If this stuff was reported on, perhaps meaningful conversations could be had and laws passed that would save hundreds of lives in black communities per year...but nope.

    I just wish more people stood up for stuff like this. They only stand in the name of outrage and have the time they don't even know why they are upset, not really.

    I also read deaths by gunshot stats on a government site and apparently 2/3's of them come from suicide. That is a BIG deal. It is showing that we have a bigger mental health problem than a crime problem when it comes to guns.

    That one is also true, and I think the newer numbers show that it's higher than 2/3, closer to 80% if I remember correctly. It was originally in my last post but I deleted it because shit was getting too real for an anime forum and I didn't wanna bring everyone down by posting gun violence statistic charts lol.

    There is a major problem with mental health and it is clear as day yet we have people blaming guns for the sake of them being guns and then we have other people blaming video games. When I heard Trump blamed video games, he lost some cred in my book. You have to be stupid to think video games lead to violence. If a teen or young adult has mental health problems and then plays violent video games, it can play a role but most people don't have this issue. I was 6 years old playing Mortal Kombat and watching horror movies at age 7 and I am so much against violence, the sight of two people fighting turns my stomach.

    It is just sad that people in the US find themselves in the position of going through with this. There are a lot of issues in America that need to be sorted but I am convinced that they will just keep getting ignored. It is far easier and cheaper to blame guns than to admit US citizens have a severe mental health crisis and then do something about it. We'd have to better regulate medications, crackdown on chemicals in the food and water, improve public school systems, address the issues when it comes to single parenting, and I can go on and on.
