Washington DC – -(  Michael Cargill is a gay, black Republican who owns Central Texas Gun Works and sells guns online for Bitcoin.

According to Forbes, Cargill's store is “the first legal Bitcoin-friendly firearm retail business in the country, if not the world.” He started “accepting Bitcoin as an alternative to dollars for all sales… in January” and he was “inundated with [so many] emails and phone calls” that he began selling online as well.

Ironically, Cargill says he “never wanted to sell guns online,” but the demand for them required it.

Like all other gun dealers, firearms purchased online from Central Texas Gun Works are shipped to a Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) near the buyer. The FFL then conducts a background check before releasing the firearm to the would-be purchaser.

Cargill used to be a Democrat. And in January 2013 he told Aol.Original he was “frustrated by some of the anti-gun arguments made by members of [that] party.” He said they needed to “stop trying to make people feel guilty about protecting themselves.”

On March 10th Breitbart News spoke to Cargill and he said he changed party affiliation to Republican before the 2013 election season.

His store sells t-shirts emblazoned with the words, “Buy a gun, annoy a liberal.”

    1. Right, when you purchase in store or on the web from a genuine FFL holder, the firearm(s) must be shipped directly to another genuine FFL holder in your state of residence to process your 4473 application and necessary NICS.

    2. why does the author of this piece find it necessary to inform its readers that this man is black, and that we care what his sexual preference is?

    3. For Mr Hawkins information, ALL firearms bought online or in stores, in Texas, have to have a background by a FFL before the buyer can take possession of the firearm. It’s quite simple of a procedure, but unlike some dandys in nu yoik, no one in Texas can buy and take possession of the firearm without first having a background check by the FFL that either receives the firearm from the seller, or from the FFL in the store where the weapon was purchased.

    4. Good for him….

      …but he’s parked sideways in a handicap parking space.

      I’d be a little pissed if I pulled up with my 4 year old who is in a wheelchair!!!

      What a jerk!
