You mentioned that when you put down money on something that is restricted... that you accept the chance of it being siezed and should accept the loss if it happens.
I agree.. this is the way it should be, if youre asking someone to do a favor for you, or doing it yourself.
But this is a business. You dont purchase items from a business with the Chance of getting it. If I ordered a rifle from SIR that wasnt in stock, Im not paying money for the CHANCE of getting it! Thats the point of buying through a business; to ensure you get what you pay for.
If you are a business who deals on the principal of chance, that someone can buy something and they MIGHT get it, I would say that business requires a manitoba lottery license, as this is a form of gambling and illegal to do so without.
