    All this "gun control" stuff is pure bullshit. We don't need "laws" to keep us from acting like animals with a gun, and the criminals don't give a shit about the law anyway.

    Therefore, there are only 1 or 2 possibilities:

    1: Legislators are brain dead.
    2: Legislators know all this full well and their true aim is a disarmed America, not "public safety".

    Of course, we all know it's #2........ with some #1 tossed in.

    I understand the law Cabela's violated was a state law and not a federal law. Delaware has a similar law in that the BP firearm must be purchased through a gun dealer and can't be bought online. However, no paperwork is necessary for purchasing a BP firearm from the dealer.

    IIRC, DE doesn't allow air rifles or pistols to be ordered through the mail either. They must be purchased through a store that sells them.

    Thank goodness, MD, follows federal laws and has no statute concerning the sale of BP firearms.
