You just answered your own question. Not everyone lives near someone who can verify them. That means either waiting for one to come to them or making a loooong trip out to meet someone...which doesn't always happen right away.

Just curious how exactly you'd make sure that the person on the scanned image or webcam is over 18?

It's up to the seller to enforce the bylaw.
I think you're missing what SINN is saying...many retailers sell more than just AEG's. What if someone just wants to buy a holster or a boonie? Not only would you be preventing that person from searching for what they need or want to buy, but you'd be taking away potential business from the retailer. If I were a retailer, that wouldn't exactly make me happy. You'd need permission from all the retailers before doing any of this.
