Default Firearms Freight

I don`t know if this will ever effect freight in the USA,but it is closing down firearms aquisition in my part of the world.As from Dec 2009 no freight company or postal service will carry any firearms or parts thereof from any part of the world to dealers in the British Channel Islands.We are British,but not part of the UK.We have no vote in the UK parliment,and also we have no UK type political parties in our Govt.The UK have never been pleased that we do not follow their firearms laws,but couldn`t do much about it.The above seems to be a back door way of forcing control.Not knowing how the freight regulations are in the USA,I am wondering if your gun opposition types will try something like this on you.

THe current office has much more to worry about than attempting to start a revolution.

Kestral- here in the US we may send a rifle or shotgun through the mail- but if crossing from one state to another, it must go TO a Federal firearms License holder (dealer, gumith, collector, etc) HANDGUNS may only by shipped by a few common carriers- UPS or FedEx, unless you are a dealer (they can still use the mail) Those carriers require we ship next day AIR, so about $75 to ship a handgun. Any part can be sent by any means except the reciever- it is legally "the gun".

Our concern is not the front door attack, but the back door- simply tax and regulate the beast to death. Proclaim "it's for the CHILDREN" and "It's only COMMON SENSE." when in fact it is neither.

Just guessing- Jersey, Guernsey, Isle of Man? My lady is a West Country lass from the Devon/Cornwall border.

Is there any law or embargo prohibiting the shipping, or are shipping companies voluntarily refusing service?
If voluntary, a licensed dealer in the channel islands may well be able to make a lucrative, legal profit by starting their own shipping company.......
Free enterprise baby, just a thought

I've always wondered how the CMP can ship to anyones door directly. All that's needed is that you are a US citizen, belong to a sponsored gun organization, and passed a gun safety course or been prior military..
