Fed Fails to By Illegal Guns

Over the course of the two-and-a-half year investigation, agents tried to buy firearms illegally on the “Surface Web” and the “Dark Web,” generally by sharing their status as “prohibited individuals” or trying to buy across state lines.

But the GAO revealed that their 72 attempts outside of the dark web were all “unsuccessful.”

“Private sellers on Surface Web gun forums and in classified ads were unwilling to sell a firearm to our agents that self-identified as being prohibited from possessing a firearm,” the GAO reported, noting that in their “72 attempts ... 56 sellers refused to complete a transaction once we revealed that either the shipping address was across state lines or that we were prohibited by law from owning firearms.” In the other cases, the investigators' website was frozen or they encountered suspected scammers.

So, does this close the "gunshow loophole" or are they going to find something else to bitch about?

So long as there is a gun show anywhere with an exhibitor of firearms not for sale, we’ll hear about the loophole.
The use of the word "but" usually indicates that everything preceding it in a sentence is a lie.
