I love it when a plan goes straight south on the left…

A Democrat-backed study meant to expose illicit online gun sales instead seemed to show the opposite — with hardly any sellers taking the bait when undercover investigators tried to set up dozens of illegal firearm transactions. 

Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., as well as Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, had commissioned the Government Accountability Office report to look into how online private dealers might be selling guns to people not allowed to have them.

One interesting point- Does this once again call into question Bloomie’s 2015 study? We know for a fact they purposely lied to gun sellers, especially on the straw purchases…

  1. They work so very hard to try and invalidate the US Constitution. If only they put that misspent effort into doing something constructive — like offering firearms/hunter safety courses to kids in high school.

    • I am so old I recall when Hunter’s Safety courses where offered (after hours) at _elementary_ schools, complete with mimeo’s that had the line “Remember to bring your gun.” Now, I really wish I’d saved at least one of those little notices. It would be great watch some heads explode at that.

  2. The thing that’s most scary about the left is that they really believe the nonsense they spout and no amount of reality is going to discourage them. And they have incredible amounts of money from a very small group of power-happy people to persuade them…

    • Totally agree – “steny” just said on live TV that the dems are in favor of border security. Yep, like they did when they promised Reagan they would secure the border in exchange for amnesty…………….
      Back on topic, they always have lied about “gun control” – what they really want is absolute control. Period.

  3. So, does this mean that they’ll finally STFU about the non-existent “Gun Show Loophole” or will they find something equally stupid (and false) to rave about?

    • Why would a Truth Coefficient of zero suddenly start mattering to them?

      Thus: No. Yes.

  4. I wonder how much taxpayer money was used to fund this study who reached a conclusion that any of us could have predicted with pretty good accuracy? Would be great if Cummings, Warren, and Schatz would be on the hook to repay whatever it was! I know that’s never gonna happen, but would be nice if it did …

    Just saw an article yesterday about liberal heads exploding because the ATF can’t inspect every FFL holder each year, or even every three years. They are too busy auditing explosives dealers and licensees. My thought was that’s good, since even when they do audit an FFL holder, most of the ‘problems’ they uncover are paperwork related and nothing sinister at all. This point is made by anti-gun advocates – oh, sorry, gun safety advocates – every so often as if it is a horrible injustice, but funny how that never seems to cause the kind of Armageddon that they imply it will.

  5. …and TODAY, I picked up from my local FFL the Chinese coach gun I won in the raffle! Very nice gun case included! Thanks again to whoever donated this and continued best wishes for the health of our neighbor lady.

  6. Hey Old NFO;

    The truth means nothing to the leftist believers that want the nanny states to tell everyone what to do and since they will be in control of the nanny state, it suits their purpose.
