CBS Pretends Buying An AR-15 As Easy As Buying “A Cup Of Coffee At Starbucks”

posted on June 17, 2016

In a June 16 “CBS This Morning” news segment, the network quoted UCLA School of Law professor Adam Winkler, who claimed, “Throughout most of America, you can go into a gun store and buy an AR-15 just like you’d go into a Starbucks and buy a cup of coffee.”

For that to be true, buying a cup of coffee would require you to present ID, prove citizenship, undergo a computerized criminal background check, comply with a waiting period in many states, and sign an affidavit attesting that you’re not a convicted criminal, fugitive, illegal alien or illegal drug user; not adjudicated mentally defective; not dishonorably discharged; not under indictment or restraining order; not a domestic abuser; and are the actual buyer of that particular cup of coffee—and if you’re caught lying in any of those answers, you’re guilty of a federal felony.

Unfortunately, the truth just doesn’t fit in with CBS’ hysteria-mongering.
