Found this CNN story through one of the opposition channels, and frankly I’m floored at the title.
Loophole allows for easier purchase of high-powered weapons
That’s the title, but the article is actually a pretty decent (for CNN at least) article on NFA firearms. The only other place the word “Loophole” is found on the page is in the caption to the picture:
Benjamin Ferguson bought a silencer through a federal weapons loophole.
“Federal Weapons Loophole”? You mean that loophole where if you happen to live in a state where Suppressors (not “silencers”) legal, and you can get your Chief of police, or county Sheriff to sign off on the ATF form, and you pay a $200 federal transfer tax, you can buy a suppressor from a federally licensed NFA dealer….of course after a 6+ month waiting period and background check.
Holy shit we need to close that mo’fuggin loophole! Can you imagine how people could take advantage of that? Seriously, can you? I’m racking my brain and sure as hell can’t think of one….
What’s hilarious is not only did CNN write this turd, but CSGV appears to have only read the title, but not the story.
Gun enthusiasts using loophole to acquire full-auto machines guns & silencers w/o background checks.
