The US has a lot of rules.
If you are caught trying to bring a loaded gun on a plane, or buying a bag of ice cream at a fast-food restaurant, or even bringing a baggie of weed onto a flight, the law can get pretty severe.
But that doesn’t mean the rules don’t apply.
In fact, there are some common rules that apply to both the US mainland and Canada.
We’ve broken down the rules, and we’ll be updating this post every time there’s a new rule, with links to the rules in the FAQ section.
The most important rules, for now:If you’re caught bringing a loaded firearm onto a US flight, you’ll be arrested and prosecuted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
You’ll also have to undergo a drug test and face a $10,000 fine.
You’ll be required to report the violation to the US Coast Guard, which can also prosecute you if it finds your behavior to be reckless or dangerous.
But if you are trying to buy a bag or a weed, you’re not arrested.
You can get away with carrying a small amount of weed on a flight (no more than six plants per person) but you won’t be able to buy one of the more dangerous items.
In Canada, you can buy anything you want, including a bag, but you can’t bring a gun.
You’ll also be fined $1,000 for each offense.
You may also be charged with a Class B misdemeanor for bringing a gun onto a plane.
The federal penalties are $5,000 to $10.00 for the first offense, $2,000 per subsequent offense and $10 to $25 per subsequent conviction.
The penalties for the Class B felony are up to a maximum of life in prison.
You could also face up to 10 years in prison if you commit the same crime twice in the same year.
The US Federal Government’s list of prohibited items includes some fairly common items like chewing tobacco, marijuana, and beer, but it’s a little more complicated.
There are also a few items that aren’t necessarily prohibited, like firearms and large knives.
Here are the rules that will apply to you if you’re trying to purchase a gun:If your conduct violates any of the following:You’ll be charged a $1 for each violation, which could result in a mandatory minimum penalty of $1.50, or up to six months in jail.
You’re also required to register as a gun seller, meaning you’ll have to register with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).
You also must undergo a firearms safety course.
If convicted of a Class A felony, you may face up 10 years to life in federal prison.
But you can avoid all of these penalties by purchasing a gun from a licensed dealer in the US.
It’s not illegal to buy guns from a US gun shop, and it’s legal to buy them from Canada.
You have to pay a fee to get a firearm shipped to your address, but that fee is waived for customers of licensed gun stores.
You also have the option of paying a $500 fine for each Class A or Class B violation.
It costs $2 to purchase the gun, but only one violation will be prosecuted.
You can buy a firearm at any gun show or online, but your gun dealer must conduct a background check before you can take your purchase home.
You must also register as an online dealer if you want to sell guns.
If you commit a second violation within 10 years of a first one, you could face up 20 years in federal custody.
If the first violation is a Class C felony, it can carry up to 20 years.
If it’s more serious, it could carry up 20 or 30 years in a federal prison, depending on the severity of the second violation.
