No, this is not about the current and important issue of 'concealed weapon' rights... It's about what is practically required in the USA to have the right to buy a rifle?
"An ID" you say. Fine, but what actually constitutes "an ID"?
As some of you may have guessed, I'm an Aussie living in Germany, but my wife's family own a home in Florida where Claudia and I spend more time than the rest of the clan put together. And I'm a member of a Pentagon Society, a long servicing member of good standing, as it happens... But I don't have a US driving license. And I don't have a criminal record, which was an issue from one GunsLot bloke earlier this year.
My new T/C from my FFL will in fact my friend's rifle, which is really dumb the more I think 'bout it. And will I be able to drive to Texas with it in the trunk? Probably not. Will I be able to shoot with an outfitter who is not a personal friend? Probably not.
Here's an idea. What 'bout if I rock up to the driving license bureau and ask to have a driving test? Or what if I get the family's landline changed into my name then I will have a utility bill but will that be okay?
