I hate lying liars.

Every time I've bought a gun, I redo a background check. Gun show. Stores. Private dealer. Every single time.

Sometimes people reap what they've sown.

The perps certainly deserve to reap what they sow, but why should everyone else in the neighborhood have to reap what they did not sow?

sounds like government and gun dealers have a cozy and highly remunerative business here.

What would it cost to get a FFL? I imagine one could make a nice living ONLY DOING BACKGROUND CHECKS and never stocking or selling a single gun.

The perp is dead, His fellow hood dwellers declare him a saint, about to turn his life around.
They then protest/riot and burn down the business in there own neighborhood, Who the hell wants to rebuild there knowing all there hard work will go up in flames the next time some POS pulls a gun on the cops?

Do you think the executive branch will do it's job and enforce federal gun laws?

Sounds more like he disqualified him for being a writer, I don't see that there was any violation.

Not allowed-or at least severely restricted in the last couple of decades. It used to be easy and affordable for a law abiding person to get a FFL and be able to do background checks. Worked out well for those that bought a few guns for themselves or friends, they could sell from their living room. Now, FFLs are expensive and IIRC you are required to have a brick and mortar store dedicated to the business.

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.”


So, did he answer on the 4473 line 11a that he was buying the gun for himself? If so, and if he planned to "immediately sell it back to them"....guess what? Federal Felony dude.

The only requirement under the constitution needed, is that one be a person. Other than that, there is no authority for anything government, to infringe on the ability to obtain arms.

It was unconstitutional, to deny this person arms, by government restrictions. Now, this gun dealer can refuse to sell arms to who ever he wishes.


The Redcoats were not selling guns to the patriots.
