Very important investigation by GAO (Government Accountability Office) that proves it is not easy to buy a gun on the Internet in United States.  This is further proof that the gun show loophole is a myth.

GAO agents attempted to purchase firearms from Dark Web and Surface Web marketplaces. Agents made seven attempts to purchase firearms on the Dark Web. In these attempts, agents did not disclose any information about whether they were prohibited from possessing a firearm. Of these seven attempts, two on a Dark Web marketplace were successful. Specifically, GAO agents purchased and received an AR 15 rifle and an Uzi that
the seller said  was modified so that it would fire automatically. GAO provided referral letters to applicable law enforcement agencies for these
purchases to inform any ongoing investigations.

Tests performed on the Surface Web demonstrated that private sellers GAO contacted on gun forums and other classified ads were unwilling to sell a firearm to an individual who appeared to be prohibited from possessing a firearm. Of the 72 attempts agents made to purchase firearms on the Surface Web, 56 sellers refused to complete a transaction: 29 sellers stated they would not ship a firearm and 27 refused
after the disclosure of the undercover identities’ stated prohibited status. Furthermore, in 5 of these 72 attempts, the accounts GAO set up were
frozen by the websites, which prevented the agents from using the forums and attempting to make a purchase.

This report becomes important when you see stories like this.

http://nytimes.com/2018/01/12/us/las-vegas-attack-gunman-paddock.html

Excerpt from article:

Quote
According to the documents, it appears that Mr. Paddock relied on the internet to buy many of the items used in the attack, including guns and ammunition, during the 12 months leading up to it.

He spent “significant time and expense prior to the attack purchasing and caching weapons” and other items, such as glass cutters and suitcases. The authorities have said he used the glass cutters so he could fire out of his hotel window at the people below, who were attending a country music concert.

Any gun you purchase on the internet from FFL (federal firearm license dealer) or site like gun broker must be transferred to another FFL which will conduct a NICs check before you receive the gun.

Depending on the state,  you can buy ammo online without a background check. Although some states require you to ship your ammo to an FFL dealer or licensed ammo dealer.
