District of Columbia Gun Shop Directory

Whatever the gun might be and wherever you are ordering it from, before you place that order online, you might want to consult your nearest Washington D.C. FFL. By federal law, a local gun dealer must act as the intermediary for all online gun transactions, so if you want to streamline the process you will look to form a relationship with your local dealer upfront. At FFL Easy, we take the struggle out of this process and make online ordering easier than ever before.

While citizens are fighting hard to soften up Washington D.C. gun laws, the current landscape is still less-than-friendly towards the modern gun owner. Certain categories of weapon are banned entirely, magazines are limited to a 10-round capacity, and all guns must be registered with that state, also acting as a permit to own. Perhaps more significant than any of this, the District of Columbia is also undergoing some legal debate right now as to the concealed carry policies. In practice, they have been historically unwilling to offer permits to law-abiding citizens. In May 2015, courts ruled that permits should be issued on a “shall issue” basis, but this ruling is still not fully in effect while it is appealed. Naturally, if you want to order a gun online, you should start by connecting with a local Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL).
