i feel that in a day and age where anybody can sell anything to anybody, that the only major exception to this, that being automobiles, should be able to sold directly to the public by their respective manufacturers. Honestly what logical reason besides lobbyists, bribes and corrupt politicians could there be to not allow Ford or Tesla to sell their products directly to the public. Smith & Wesson can sell directly to the public. Apple can sell directly to the public. Coca Cola can sell directly to the public. So I ask you again why cant Tesla or Ford sell directly to the public?
