Amazon.com shoppers may be surprised to see the following warning when they shop for ordinary camping and outdoor gear, including axes:
WARNING: You must be 18 or older to purchase Axes. Axes cannot be shipped to CA; D.C.; MA; Miami-Dade & Sarasota counties, FL; Canada or Puerto Rico. Please check your State, County and City laws for restrictions before ordering Axes.
Can I order an axe head in the District of Columbia? Does it become illegal once I attach a wooden stick to it? Is it a felony to convert a sledgehammer into an axe? Does possession of a lump of steel, a drill and a grinding wheel constitute ‘constructive possession’ of an axe? Could I import an assembled axe into the District myself, or do I need to get a permit from J. Edgar Holder?
As one reader wisely pointed out, laws like this put paid to the leftist BS that ‘nobody is coming after your guns.’ The real answer is that they ARE coming after your guns, and once they’ve taken them away they’re coming after everything else you can use to defend yourself.
