Firearms can legally be mailed within the restrictions of the Postal Service. Ammunition and many other explosives cannot be mailed.

In the US, BB PISTOLS may not be mailed in the US mail, other than by a Dealer or Manufacturer. BB "rifles" may be mailed if unloaded. This is specified in the Domestic Mail Manual. In other countries, other rules.

Yes you can. Most stun guns are purchased online and are sent to most states in the US, except for a few states that have restrictions.

The services that the mail offers in the US are certified mail, registered mail, insured mail, express mail, and many more.

Blackpowder guns are exempt from the Gun Control Act of 1963. This is the law that requires a Federal Firearms License (FFL) to send guns by mail. So, no. You don't need FFL to mail black powder guns.

In the US (other countries, other laws) a private citizen may mail an unloaded rifle or shotgun by US Mail. See chapter 14, Domestic Mail Manual. Only a Dealer or Manufacturer with a Federal Firearms License can legally MAIL a handgun. If the ownership of a firearm is being transferred across a state line, the gun MUST be shipped to a Federal Firearms License holder. Both UPS and FedEx hubs (not storefronts) will SHIP (not mail) rifles, shotguns, and handguns.

Yes. About one third of us that are adults do own guns. Legally.

No, US Postal Regulations prohibit the placing of anything but US Mail either in, or on, mail boxes.

Despite belief to the contrary, in MOST of the US, there is no requirement to register ordinary guns.

None. People are not genetically related to guns.

They use a lot of guns given them by the US BATF.

It did cost $1.10 to mail a postcard in the US in 2003.

Yes, There Is Mail. Good Friday is not a national holiday so yes, the US Postal Service delivers mail. When is there no mail delivery in the US? See the Related Link for a list of days on which the United States Postal Service does not deliver mail.

Not in the US, but registry is required for ownership or possession of certain types of guns.

Spud guns are generally legal in the US. They require approval from the BATFE.
