Turns Out Legal Gun Owners Are A Honest Very Good Bunch Of People: Proven By Government

Sharing is Caring!

Posing as prohibited persons or out-of-state buyers, what happened when government agents tried to purchase guns online?
The short answer.  Unless they went to the dark web, they were rejected.
Findings in a two-year study, conducted by the Government Accountability Office (GAO), tell the tale.

GAO Report

web were unsuccessful.” (Photo: GAO Report)

For clarity, the “surface web” is the regular internet you and I use every day.  For the study, agents went to a variety of online destinations to attempt to purchase firearms, including retailers, auction hubs and marketplaces, classified listings, forums and social media platforms.  Who knows, they may have even tested GunsAmerica.
The bottom line is that all 72 attempts “to illegally purchase firearms from private sellers on the surface web were unsuccessful,” as the report stated.
Translation: the majority of online gun sellers are law-abiding.
Agents used a variety of scenarios during the test.  Each scenario, whether it was pretending to be a felon or having a dishonorable discharge from the military or living in a different state than the seller and not wanting the transfer to go through an FFL, would disqualify one from purchasing a firearm.
