I love it when idiotic liberals get their just desserts, especially when it’s on such a hot topic.
According to Fox News Insider, a liberal columnist, emboldened by the recent fervor of reporters trying to test how easily they can get guns, decided to see how fast he could purchase an AR-15 – a rifle that Democrats are looking to outright ban.
Unfortunately, Neil never got to write his story, because his background check prevented him from buying a gun. WOOPS!
Following the Orlando terror attack, Chicago Sun-Times columnist Neil Steinberg wanted to demonstrate how easy it is to obtain an AR-15 in Illinois.
Steinberg’s application for the weapon was rejected, however, after a background check revealed his “admitted history of alcohol abuse, and a charge for domestic battery involving his wife.”
In his column, Steinberg claims that Maxon Shooter’s Supplies, in Des Plaines, Ill., rejected his application because he’s in the media.
The owners of the gun store disagreed and said that the background check raised multiple red flags, including his history of alcohol abuse and domestic violence.
Yeah, this sounds about right – instant background checks actually work when offenses are reported. Weird how that works, eh? Liberals will not learn from this, but we can certainly laugh at their expense, and share this story as an example that background checks can and do work.
