    I'd be willing to bet that they take as long as they possibly can, probably until another court has to intervene and force their hand, before they really make handguns available to the 'common folk'.

    Wait, I guess I haven't bought enough weapons to understand this, but what's to stop a person from buying a gun out of state and simply driving the weapon home? I understand you can't ship to an FFL, but you could buy one in another state and simply take it home, right?

    Nope....handguns must be transfered to you from an FFL in your state of residence.....

    Edit to add:...unless you have a relative that can "gift" you one that lives in another state (depending on their states laws)

    Josh Sugermann of VPC is an FFL in DC.

    Get a Black person to try to order a gun from him, then when he refuses, file a discrimination suit. If nothing else move to have his FFL administratively terminated.

    Sugermann got his FFL specifically to be able to take possession of handguns and destroy them. It used to be that BATFE said you had to be ussing your FFL to make a profit. If thats still the case simply report Mr. Sugermann to BATFE as not using his FFL properly...

    Could it be that BATFE practices "selective enforcement"? I would be shocked! shocked I tell you! to find that to be the case.

    But first, one must find a D.C. resident who is legally capable under Federal law of possessing a firearm.

    On a more serious note, just as many sheriffs are noted for sitting on purchase and carry permit applications forever while "waiting to hear back from the FBI," so Sugarmann could easily agree to sell the gun "as soon as it arrives" while never actually receiving it. Or he could charge a ridiculously intolerable markup. Dealers who want to deal have been driving away customers for eons, someone like Sugarmann who actually wants to drive them away won't have any problem finding methods to do so.

    Um, Brolin, would you REALLY have a weapon shipped without package tracking?
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    I think you misunderstood what I meant when I said Sugarmann could claim that the ordered weapon never arrived. I was referring to what he'd tell would-be purchasers who came to him to order guns for them. Instead of flat out turning down their business and thereby proving he wasn't really in the firearms business and possibly losing his FFL, he could just promise to order the desired firearm, then tell the customer "it hasn't come in yet" until the customer tires of the game.
