My mother got a rifle in 2003 in Florida, USA. Same state the 9/11 airplane-bomb folks got their flight training.
Walked into a store. Said, “That one”. She was of age to buy it, they sold it to her. KMart. (it’s like Walmart)
Now, her last name is . Married to an Egyptian in the 80s for two years.
She gets her shoes taken off at airports They pull her aside because of her last name.
But a gun? She just had to walk in and ask.
Is it different now 13 yrs later? I dunno. But I don’t think it’s much harder than that.
If I go to a gun show? I think they want to see a driver’s license.. which is the most easily faked thing around.
