This is to all the misinformed people who think anyone and everyone can walk into a gun shop and leave with a firearm. It will show how, when followed the laws that are in place work.
Yesterday I went to Walmart ,I had to get a few things from the sporting goods area. One of the items I intended to buy was a range finder which was lock up . I had to wait for the clerk to finish taking care of the guy he just started waiting on. There were three black men together, one was trying to buy a shotgun. I point out they were black because it became important later , the clerk was also a young black man. The man buying the shot gun was early twenties as was one of the other men the third man looked to be in his forties and had the nerve to keep pulling a small bottle in a bag from his coat and drinking. You could smell the alcohol . Through out the process of filling forms out they talked about ,how someone broke into this guys apartment and if he comes back this guy will "smoke "him. The older guy said he should just get a handgun otherwise he will need to cut the barrel down because the gun was to long. First red flag, the guy buying the gun said he was going to cut the barrel as soon as he got home. Second red flag, He then tells his younger friend he should get one too, the friend replies he can't because he is a felon , Both of these things are already enough to stop this sale. The final thing was when the older guy chimed in and said just have him buy it for you and the guy buying the shot gun saying yeah, I could do that. At this point the back ground check was being run and the clerk stepped up and said I'm sorry but I can't sell you this firearm I believe you are now making a strawman purchase. This is where them being black came in, they tried to use it to get him to change his mind,now calling him bro, saying it proves Walmart is racist, then calling him a coon for going against other blacks. It got loud and heated and only ended with the young clerk saying he was going to call the police. He did the right thing and followed the law. The laws in place do work! PS. Don't make this about race and fill the comment section with racist BS.

dictionary and grammar book first.
must have been quite stupid. Heard of the Black Market. LOL funny
I'm proud of that clerk standing up for what is right and stopping the sale. Unfortunately, as a retired ATF agent I know this is too often the exception and not the rule. Just like youngsters paying an older person to buy them beer, strawman purchases happen every day, all over the US. We all need to be vigilant and as strong of character as that young man was when he turned down the sale.
They fucked up by running their nigger mouths. I buy guns all the time but I keep my mouth shut.
A felon can walk into a gun show and buy a gun from what is called a "Straw buyer". You need to investigate before you pop off dude.
I will give you an hint, a private owner, not a gun owner can sell a gun to anyone without a background check or a waiting period. GET INFORMED BEFORE YOU SHOW YOU STUPIDITY.
U DA MAN B !
Any gun owner can sell their gun to anyone, just gun dealers must do a background check, however they can use a straw buyer which sits beside them and buys the gun and resells it to whoever want it. No background check needed.
Get educated bubba.
Walmart may have stopped the sale but it is not true at gun shows. I have seen as many as 5 assault rifles sold to a straw buyer working with the dealer and sold to some Mexican buyers.

I have been to many gun shows and you are dead wrong. Anyone purchasing a firearm from a dealer must go through a background check. Its federal law, if they ,the dealer doesn't do a check its a felony , they face a ten year jail sentence. Private sales don't need background checks but only when it is the sale of a long gun, all handguns must be taken to a FFL dealer to have the buyer undergo a background check. Even in private sales if the seller has any reasonable suspicion the buyer can't legally own a gun and still sells it to him he can be charged later if the gun is used in a crime.
The point was if the laws are followed they work!
What most gun haters do not realize is that because so many of our citizens own guns it keeps our country from being invaded by other countries. Take the guns away crime rate goes up and so do the invasions.

Afghanistan has a lot of guns and they been invaded both by Russian and Americans I guess that's why we can't beat a country smaller than California with less people because they have guns . England citizens have no guns and last time they were invaded was ww2 I guess that was more of a bombing campaign. Under Sadam in Iraq the citizens didn't have guns rights it wasn't until United States came in now everyone has a gun and there's all kinds of crazy invaders coming in to Iraq.
