Illegal-Gun Sting Backfires

Illegal-Gun Sting Backfires

The anti-gunners have long held on to their conviction that it’s so easy to buy guns illegally online. Well, guess what? Federal investigators who participated in a 28-month effort to try to prove that went 0-for-72.

We won’t’ hold our breath waiting for the triumvirate of Democrats—Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., and Sens. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.—who called for the inquiry to admit that one of their main talking-points is pure balderdash.

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) report, “Internet Firearm Sales: ATF Enforcement Efforts and Outcomes of GAO Covert Testing,” was commissioned because the legislators wanted to replicate the results of three earlier “studies” that anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg sponsored. But the GAO findings show that Bloomberg’s studies were fallacious.

NRA-ILA has posted a lengthier report about the study, and NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox will be writing about it in an upcoming edition of America’s 1st Freedom.
