GAO Report: Feds Prosecute 0.01% of ‘Lie and Try’ Attempted Gun Purchases

5 hours 52 min ago

But a new report from the Government Accountability Office suggests that these “lie and try” buyers almost never come under federal prosecution.

Korwin: Efforts to Infringe is Creed Discrimination! It’s Illegal!

Thu, 09/20/2018 - 08:04
