Online is quite different and the mailman is a delivery service, not part of the sale.

The issue is the change of the tax rate, with respect to when it is started. In this case, it is the best interest of the customer since the tax rate is going down.

It is when you pick it up, not when the DROS is submitted.

BTW, I think it is a good thing to charge the reduced sales tax, although it is a pain to re-calculate everything, but consider the other way. If you bought a firearm when the tax was lower, but are forced to wait to pick it up so then you have to pay a higher sales tax which was not in effect when bought it, that is not right. Now, consider if you could pick it up the day before the tax rate went up, but then couldn't, so then suddenly you have to pay more, even if you paid for everything.
