It is not illegal to buy gold, silver ,platinum, or palladium.

The system wants you to think that it is illegal or un-American. You have to know what you are buying, and you buy from someone you trust. That is the key. It doesn't hurt to walk in there and have the shop keeper show you what is available. Get those prices and compare them to what is on line. Buy only coins, not bars. Bars are easier to counterfeit. The government already knows who owns the guns and gold. Let the government be afraid of us for a change. Don't be afraid of the government. Whenever you sell it (never I hope), that is when the government wants their piece of the pie. Like stock, you must show gains (or loses) on your taxes.
