According to their Facebook page, Cheaper Than Dirt (a major online firearms, ammo and accessories dealer) has stopped selling guns through their website.

There has been significant fallout among the firearms community, with thousands of people criticizing the decision on the Facebook page.

Note that guns purchased online are not sent directly to the buyer, but are instead sent to a federally licensed firearms dealer in their area where a background check is done and a Form 4473 is filled out, just like a normal in store purchase.

This pretty drastic. It’s one thing for a store like Dick’s or Wal Mart to suspend gun sales as that is only a small part of their business. However, one has to wonder what will happen to firearms retailer when they stop selling firearms.
