11. I wouldn't trust that website you linked to.

There is an on line petition one can sign there:

"Change: Sign Our Petition

To: Members of Congress

Region: The United States of America

Background: According to the FBI, in 2011, more police officers died in the line of duty than at any time since the terrorist attacks of 9/11: 72 officers lost their lives at the hands of criminals, a 25% increase from the year before. With 85% of the firearms recovered in New York City having come here from other states, illegal firearms are a growing issue.

Petition: We the undersigned urge Members of Congress Mandate a law prohibiting the purchase of guns and assault weapons over the internet."

The petition has nothing to do with the background given. This petition gives one the impression that any Joe Blow can buy a gun off the internet and have it shipped directly to them with no questions asked.
