Government Investigation Proves Internet Gun Sale Loophole is a Myth

Oh boy, the anti-Second Amendment lobby is going to be upset.

From July 2015 to November 2017, the GAO attempted 72 times to buy guns through the surface web (as opposed to dark web).

In all 72 times, the website rejected the sale because they believed the buyer wasn’t legally able to purchase the firearm.

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. 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.

According to the GAO Bloomberg’s report “did not demonstrate how prohibited individuals may have firearms mailed directly to them, thus circumventing the FFL purchase process, or otherwise break the law”…
