Dems learn it's harder to buy guns
illegally online than they thought

By Bob Unruh. January 4th, 2018

An undercover investigation ordered by liberals in Congress who wanted to pull back the curtain on how easy it is to buy a weapon illegally on the web has ended up with a stunning conclusion: Gun sellers won't go along with the deals.

In fact, the report from the Government Accountability Office (GAO) reveals that the websites run by the sellers even took action against the wannabe buyers multiple times.

The new report said, "Tests performed on the Surface Web demonstrated that private sellers GAO contacted on gun forums and other classified ads were unwilling to sell a firearm to an individual who appeared to be prohibited from possessing a firearm."

The report continued, "Of the 72 attempts agents made to purchase firearms on the Surface Web, 56 sellers refused to complete a transaction. 29 sellers stated they would not ship a firearm and 27 refused after the disclosure of the undercover identities' stated prohibited status. Furthermore, in 5 of these 72 attempts, the accounts GAO set up were frozen by the websites, which prevented the agents from using the forums and attempting to make a purchase." .......

Two rabidly anti-gun Dems, Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, had their sights set on catching out firearms dealers making illegal sales on the internet. It appears that despite significant efforts by congressional investigators to purchase illegally, the end result was basically a dismal failure and a definitive proof that lawful trading seems to be alive and well.
