From what I've read, he passed the NICS check but the gun store refused to sell the gun to him.

Maybe he can still buy pop tart kid's gun from the other thread.

What's the background check like for a pastry?

No, it doesn't. He should be in prison for lying on the Form 4473.

Default Honest Gun distributors.

Gun distributors are held to tight regulation and any deviation form the Federal Standard they could lose their license to sell to the General Public.


This reported actually did fraud which is a Federal Offence. I wonder if ATF was called.
