    Liberal Reporter Fails Background Check…

    Memo to leftist new’s editors: those stories you keep writing where you send reporters to buy guns to prove…I don’t know, whatever you’re trying to prove? You may want to run your own background check on the reporter first. You know, to avoid the inevitable surgical removal of your foot, lodged forcibly into your own mouth. Also to prevent ours from being lodged forcibly up your ass. ObamaCare probably won’t cover that. Unless you’re a transgender something or other.

    Just ask the Chicago Sun Times, who sent a reporter (who wrote this) to buy a gun, only to find out he wasn’t allowed to:

    In an attempt to show how easy it is to buy a modern sporting rifle, Neil Steinberg, of the Chicago Sun-Times, was denied by the store owner’s because “it was uncovered that Mr. Steinberg has an admitted history of alcohol abuse, and a charge for domestic battery involving his wife.”

    Mr. Steinburg tried to allege that wasn’t the real reason. According to him it was because, “they knew I planned to immediately sell it back to them.”

    He further complains that people who have yet to commit a crime, unlike him, are able to buy guns. “Would-be terrorists can buy guns…But reporters . . . that’s a different story.”



    Liberal Reporter Tries to Buy Gun for ‘Gotcha!’ Piece. Fails Background Check…

    The same thing happened to a Philadelphia reporter about a decade ago.

    Seems it should be easy for him to find some would be terrorist to go prove his point for him.

    It seems hilarious to me that Murder Capital Chicago would send one of their newspaper reporters to prove how easy guns are to get from a gun dealer, yet ignore the fact that the most prevalent murderers in their city don't purchase their guns legally.

    But, that's not their point. Their point isn't about who is using guns, it is that the guns are the problem. They don't have a problem with Chicago's gun laws per se, they believe illegal guns are entering Chicago from areas nearby where guns are too easy to get.

    The fact that there is no such thing as a gun-show loophole doesn't matter, people talk about it like it exists. The fact that registered gun owners account for about 1% of all gun crimes doesn't matter - guns are too easy to obtain legally.

    Facts don't matter, as seen by the spin "Would-be terrorists can buy guns…But reporters . . . that’s a different story.”
    There are only two possibilities; one is that we are alone in the universe, the other is that we are not.
    Both are terrifying.

    Do you know what the " gunshow loophole " is?
    Private transfers without background checks of hand and long guns is the gunshow loophole.
    At least 32 Free States have private transfers that are done without a background / nics check.

    indeed the loop hole is a private citizen selling his personal property to another private citizen
    [not stolen property]



    Gun haters want ALL transfers recorded for later confiscation
    [yes that is my tinfoil take on the matter]

    no tinfoil hat required. History shows that's Exactly how it's always used.

    California or NY will be the first to demonstrate it here.

    You guys forget that you live in Maryland, and they started doing a 7 day mail in background check for handguns with the State Police in 1966. Two years before the 68 gun control act and about 11 years before ATF was put in place.
