We believe that no individual should have access to firearms if he or she has succumbed to the disease of addiction, nor should any individual be able to attain a weapon who has exhibited violent behaviors or tendencies. We want any potential buyer or gun owner to be as informed as possible about these sensitive issues before making personal firearm decisions.
Our team of gun enthusiasts has all the knowledge to help you make a confident decision when purchasing a firearm and offer expert advice on choosing what’s right for you through our range of informative videos and blog posts. With subjects ranging from the best handguns to introduce a new shooting sports enthusiast too, which pistol is perfect for home protection, and much more, we want to take the mystery out of firearms.
You may have a lot of questions as a new gun owner, including:
- Is it true that weapons are inherently dangerous?
- It is true that weapons can create damage. However, a weapon is only dangerous when used to do harm. Like your car is a tool for transportation, but it can be used to harm others or cause accidents on the road. It depends on the person’s intention, not the product itself. A gun has value in assisting law enforcement officers and homeowners in defending against intruders and wildlife. Guns have also been used in self-defense by people in public places like schools, movie theaters, etc., to stop mass shootings before they happen. Friends and family members have saved lives with guns by firing off warning shots to ward away attackers in their homes.
- How can I go about legally acquiring one?
- As per US federal law, guns are not available to all buyers. The buyer has to meet various eligibility criteria before he/she is legally allowed to buy a gun from any Gun shop or licensed dealer. One must meet the age requirement first of all. The one who is of legal age and not a minor, 18 years for handguns and 21 years for shotguns/rifles, should have a valid photo ID with him/her.
- Is it legal to carry a hidden weapon?
- It is legal in every state to carry a non-functional replica of any weapon. For example, a non-firing replica of an AK 47 or a Glock can be carried in any state – as long as it’s not concealed. In some states however you may get arrested for displaying or threatening to use the dummy weapon against a person. It does not matter if the replica has never been converted into a real working weapon. The functional parts of the replica are not visible and are not included in its structure. A bullet firing gun can only be carried legally when its serial number has been removed from all major parts so that nobody will be able to convert it into an actual working gun.
- Should I be alarmed if I find a gun in the custody of someone I don’t know?
- When you’re in the presence of a gun, you probably don’t feel safe. If you’re not familiar with guns and firearms, they can be intimidating. Perhaps an unfamiliar person owns the gun or perhaps your safety seems threatened. The law is on your side if you are ever concerned about a gun in the presence of someone that you don’t know.
- What are the benefits and drawbacks of having a gun in my house?
- When it comes to having a gun or firearm in your house there are pros and cons. For one thing, guns can be dangerous, even when used by a trained professional. Therefore it is important to have knowledge on how to properly handle and care for a gun. Also having a gun could prove beneficial if someone breaks into the home when you are present but the gun is another pro and a con to those who don’t want guns in their home.
