FBI Director Doesn’t Know What Happens When Guns Are Bought Online

It might be a good idea to understand existing laws and regulations before advocating for new ones. Watch this embarrassing moment for the Director of the FBI testifying before a Senate Judiciary Hearing.

The Daily Caller reports:

During a December 9, 2015, Senate Judiciary Committee meeting Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina asked, “If I buy a gun on the internet is it delivered to my home?” Comey responded, “I assume it is shipped to you but I don’t know for sure actually.” The primary purpose of the meeting was to discuss the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California.

The Director clearly is unaware that if you buy a firearm online it is shipped to someone holding a Federal Firearms License (FFL). Then the FFL holder is required to have the purchaser fill out an Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) form 4473, contact the FBI and get the purchase authorized through the NICS process his organization administers.
