According to the (liberal) papers, you need a trench coat, dark sunglasses and a brown paper sack to buy guns from a gun store. The pariah status extends to the internet where many sites—including the Chinese freedom loving Google—won’t accept ads for guns. And how about moneylenders? What? You want a loan to purchase a firearm? What are you…nuts? You’ll just get the gun and rob us, that’s what you’ll do! Security! Hold this man for questioning!
Okay. Maybe it’s not THAT bad, but have you tried to get credit for a gun purchase? I didn’t think so. Well, that situation might be changing a bit, what with gunfinancing.com on the job. These guys not only allow financing for gun purchases, but that’s the only thing they do. They promise to finance any gun you can buy over the Internet. So the question becomes if you could buy a gun on credit, would you? Should you?
Most people I know with G.A.S. (Gun Acquisition Syndrome) pay cash on the barrelhead. And there are a lot of folks out there who are distrustful of the government; they’d just as soon not have any financial records of gun purchases anywhere. Most people who buy guns as a hedge against future unrest or calamity (zombie apocalypse, anyone?) are unlikely to sign a note and create a monthly gun nut.
But if you’re jonesing for some just-out-reach gun and don’t mind paying the note, this might be just the option for you. The gun culture’s come a long way in the last twenty years. You gotta give us credit.
