Ubi bene ibi patria

"While the nation is processing yet another deadly mass shooting, this time involving children at an elementary school in Connecticut (at least 20 students were killed out of 27 total dead, including the shooter), the question will be whether this will be the wake-up call the United States needs to have a serious conversation about gun control and the gun culture fueled by the National Rifle Association.

Will we demand our political leaders take action to get at the root of the problem — America’s lax gun control laws? Or will we let the NRA and their followers continue to dominate the discussion by dismissing guns as the problem or even arguing that every private citizen should own a gun? Should the children have been packing?

Shopping malls. Houses of worship. Schools. Cinemas. A mass shooting every other week. Will we become numb to what should be shocking? Is this the price our society has to pay for the 2nd Amendment?

Last week it was an Oregon shopping mall shooting. This week it is a Connecticut elementary school in the line of fire. Where will the next mass shooting take place as a consequence of American gun violence? Organizations like Mayors Against Illegal Guns and the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence are fighting the good fight against the NRA and for stricter gun control measures.

Background checks are required at gun stores. But did you know that in most states you can buy a gun online legally without a background check? That’s right folks, anyone can legally buy a gun on the Internet without a background check. The online loophole is one of the most outrageous and dangerous in our society. A convicted murderer can log on and load up.

Unlicensed private sellers, who conduct their business in the online market, account for 40 percent of U.S. gun sales. And a New York City investigation found that 62 percent of private dealers sold guns over the Internet to buyers who would not have passed a background check.

Here are the five deadliest weapons you can buy online — legally:"

You are an absolute idiot. Every gun, knife, ax, car, etc., is deadly.

Now, if you were to say that these were the five most popular guns sold/stolen/illegally obtained, that just happened to be used in killing of peoples, legal or not, then you would only be an idiot.

But only in this instance, of course.

You cannot legally buy a firearm via the internet without a background check.
Any firearms purchased through the internet has to ship directly to a federally licenced firearm dealer for background check and transfer to an invididual.

In the case where one was attempting to sell and ship a firearm directly to a potential purchaser, this would be a felony and I am quite the sure the ATF and FBI are watching the typical sites that participate in this commerce for just such activity

The entire premise and facts of this piece are blatently false.
