    Gun grabbers will be rejoicing with this news right?


    Search For Illegal, “Loophole” Online Gun Sales Fails Spectacularly


    Following a seemingly endless series of claims made by Michael Bloomberg and other Second Amendment opponents, three Democrats from the House and Senate pushed the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to commission a report on internet gun sales. The prime drivers behind this effort were Elijah Cummings, Brian Schatz and Elizabeth Warren. The claim on the table was that criminals and others who were not eligible to purchase a firearm were using the internet to buy guns from unscrupulous sellers. Well, the study is finished and the results don’t exactly support the claims of the people pushing for it. (NRA Institute for Legislative Action)

    In yet another embarrassment for the gun control lobby, a government investigation of online gun sales designed to determine “whether private sellers would knowingly sell a firearm to an individual prohibited from possessing one” determined that … no, actually, they would not. In 72 attempts undertaken over 2 ½ years, undercover agents trying to buy guns through readily-accessible Internet sites failed exactly 100% of the time to complete a sale when the seller had reason to believe the buyer was prohibited or lived in another state.

    Ironically, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) report — “Internet Firearm Sales: ATF Enforcement Efforts and Outcomes of GAO Covert Testing” – was commissioned by three staunchly anti-gun members of Congress. Leading the charge was Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, who was joined by Sens. Brian Schatz (D-HI) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).


    So undercover agents went fishing for online advertisers offering to sell firearms and attempted to get them to complete the transaction even after suggesting that they lived in a different state, couldn’t provide ID or wouldn’t be able to pass a background check. This happened 72 times over a period of more than two years. And in all 72 instances they failed to get anyone to sell them a weapon. Is this the plague of “loophole” gun sales that we keep hearing about?


    The same thing happened when officials looked into the so-called “gun show loophole.” It’s a myth. But it makes for great campaign ads for Democratic candidates, so why let a little thing like reality rain on your parade? The sad part of all this is that there really is a problem with illegal gun sales in this country and the federal government (in league with state and municipal authorities) could definitely be doing more about it. One study after another by law enforcement officials has revealed that at least 40% of criminals convicted of gun crimes got their weapons on the black market, purchasing unregistered guns from other criminals. The same linked study found that another 37% had gotten their guns on the so-called “gray market” using straw purchasers who are, themselves, also criminals by definition.

    Unfortunately, that doesn’t do any good for liberals in the government who want to pass new laws making it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms legally. It would mean getting their hands dirty and going after the actual criminals. And nobody wants to waste any time with that, right?
    Oh wait.. does not fit the desired narrative... back page news it is.
    "The most dangerous myth is the demagoguery that business can be made to pay a larger share, thus relieving the individual. Politicians preaching this are either deliberately dishonest, or economically illiterate, and either one should scare us...
    Only people pay taxes, and people pay as consumers every tax that is assessed against a business."

    Re: The Great 2nd Ammendment Debate

    Now it's made FOX News.

    Wonder when the WAPO & NYT, LAT, SFC will cover this?

    "Cummings, Warren and Schatz did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment on the GAO’s findings.

    The National Rifle Association seized on the report to claim that online sales are in fact regulated, calling the study an "embarrassment" for the gun control lobby.

    “GAO’s findings showed nothing so much as that private sellers advertising online are knowledgeable about the law, conscientious, and self-policing,” The National Rifle Association said, adding that online gun sales are “subject to the same federal laws that apply to any other commercial or private gun sales.”

    The NRA described the study as an attempt to model the findings of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s 2015 report, titled “Point, Click, Fire: An investigation of illegal online gun sales,” which found that 62 percent of private sellers were willing to proceed with a sale, even if the prospective purchaser could not pass a background check."

    Dumbasses.

    Bet the ShitFly dodges this one too...

    Geraldo, Elder Battle Over Gun Control: 'What Do You Do With an AR-15, Hunt Ducks?'

    http://insider.foxnews.com/2018/02/1...ol-larry-elder


    Bleeding heart Geraldo misses the target again. Until there’s security at all of our schools it’s going to be a recurring thing. Right now the weapon of choice is the AR 15. It could be a choice of many semi-automatic weapons, it could be bombs, it could be cars and trucks. Geraldo and his machine gun AR 15 what a friggin moron...

    The demorats don’t want proper security at schools because it would kill their push to destroy the second amendment. The duck is up Geraldo’s butt along with his head.

    Re: The Great 2nd Ammendment Debate

    ^^^ Awe c’mon 4ucker, gun control is the answer to every deranged mental case out there.

    Taking away yours and my guns will do the trick. Then, the bad guys won’t have illegal guns, let alone use them to commit crimes. And, the real windfall in this scenario will be when the bad guys are denied guns they will behave. Trust that they won’t find other means to maim & kill the innocent....

    All it takes is for you and I to be disarmed.

    All of it is anti-gun hyperbole and so many people believe it. All of ‘em need to do just a little research but they ain’t smart enough to do that.
