I'm interested in the legalities of dropshipping weapons. Just in case some of you are not aware of dropshipping, dropshipping is essentially a supply chain management technique in which the seller does not keep goods in stock, but instead transfers customer orders and shipment details to either the manufacturer or a wholesaler, who then ships the goods directly to the customer.*
Now in this case I would just be advertising the goods through a site. I'll serve as the 'middleman'. I won't ever have to handle the goods.
Now I'm based in the UK, I have a fully functioning site which lists any type of weapon for sale. I recieve cash for gun A from a customer, I transfer the customers details to my supplier who then ships the goods directly. I make my cut.
How illegal would that be if it IS illegal?*
Would I need to have a license If I live in UK even if I don't ever see or touch the weapons?
How would one tip toe past all these supposedly 'strict' laws?
Many thanks in advance
