Comedian Goes Undercover To Slip Through The “Gun Show Loophole”

In the latest video in the series “Louder With Crowder,” comedian Steven Crowder tests the pronouncements of politicians and media personalities who claim it’s easy to buy a fully automatic weapon at a gun show without a background check. An undercover camera tracks Crowder prowling gun shows, retailers and pawn shops in an attempt to buy a machine gun. 

Failing miserably, he switches tactics and tries to buy a semi-automatic in any venue—but without a background check. At one point, he implores a gun store employee to “use the gun show loophole.”

In between news clips of President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Michael Bloomberg and others decrying how easy it is to buy automatic weapons (CNN’s Don Lemon even falsely claimed to have done it), Crowder’s failures make for hilarious fare. Seemingly exasperated, he tells a gun show vendor, “I was told by the president that I could go here …” 

“You believe him?” was the reply.
