Here are a few quotes--- "Major Michael R. Bloomberg [New York city,] has dispatched private investigators to gun stores and gun shows as far away as
Arizona to illustrate how some dealers are willing to sell firearms to people they believe are disqualified from owning them.
Now the major has turned his attention to the online marketplace; in a sting operation, the city hired private investigators to buy guns from sellers
they found online. In many instances, the sales went forward even though the investigators told the sellers they were probably unable to pass a
background check or were too young to buy a pistol legally, Mr Bloomberg said at a news conference on Wednesday.
While private gun owners can generally sell their weapons without checking into the background of the purchaser, they are forbidden by federal law to
go forward with the transaction if they have reason to believe the buyer is barred from owning guns. Causes for disqualification include felony
convictions or mental illness.
The investigators contacted 125 sellers in the last month, and in more than 60 percent of the cases, the sellers were apparently willing to go through
with the deal even after the investigator explained that he would most likely fail a background check, city officials said."
This is just a little heads-up, that gun-grabber -- Major Bloomberg-- is on the warpath again; now taking his war to the civilian population of the
United States of America.
