    Default The 'It's Easier To Buy A Gun Than Cold Medicine' Crowd Just Got Slapped With Reality

    Okay—let’s look at the positives of this story. A Business Insider reporter, Hayley Peterson, tried to buy a gun at Walmart to test “the placement, selection, marketing, and security of firearms in Walmart's stores, and to learn more about the retailer's processes governing gun sales.” In other words, she wanted to make sure that background checks work. So, she’s going to try and buy a gun, which is something that tens of millions of Americans have already done. And she walked into a Walmart—a family-owned business that’s anathema to the Left. After the mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, Walmart has been hit with a petition to end all gun sales.

    During the process, Peterson admits that the process was more complicated than the false narrative that’s peddled by the liberal media, the most popular being that it’s easier to buy a gun than cold medicine. Well, her journey just slapped all those clowns who thought that with reality. Background checks are effective. Everyone who goes through a Federal Firearms Licensed dealer to buy their firearms, which is the vast majority of sales in this country, has to undergo a background check. Period. It’s the law

    It’s easier for a teenager to kill her baby than an adult to buy a gun.

    Absolutely correct. Just like a nurse in an inner city ER said in an interview, she could walk down the street and find a gun to buy before she could find a FRESH TOMATO.
    House Republican leadership has sent a memo to GOP
    members of Congress directing them to
    lie about
    right wing white supremacist gun massacres,

    to call it“violence from the left.”

    Black boys and white boys are SHOOTING people. Black boys shoot one by one. White boys like to shoot people en masse. I don't give a flying fuck if they have an NRA tattoo or a gang tattoo.

    YEAH, I made it up. I'm very creative or I just pulled the quote out of my ass. Sure that's it...

    The health and vitality of people living in many urban neighborhoods can differ from block to block depending on how near or far they are to a grocery store or supermarket that offers reasonably priced fresh fruits and vegetables that are low in calories and nutritionally dense. In many urban neighborhoods, it’s easier to buy a pint of liquor, a fried chicken wing, or a gun than a fresh tomato

    PS This is NOT the nurse, it is a running 'truth' so many people have said it over the YEARS. I'm more than certain know you won't know who the author of the above is. You have ZERO intellectual depth and even less general knowledge. Too bad.

    It probably is true about tomatoes in the inner city because the gangs rule there and what sane shop keeper would open doors there?
    Without rule of law you have no commerce.
    Oh, but BLM so there is that.

    That'll get rid of them. So if they don't have a car to get to the nearest Walmart they can just die early deaths from diabetes, heart disease--if they don't get shot first? Good plan.

    And your plan is? Is it too hard for your tiny neanderthal brain to comprehend that these problems are self induced and cause by the policies of the Democratic Party of the Jackass. You won't find a Conservative within 20 miles of these Democratically controlled urban shit holes.

    If you promote a narrative that it is okay to disrespect cops, disrespect authority, have babies as teens, drop out of school do drugs and make excuses for gang bangers, you might have a continuing spiral downward into the sewer of poverty?

    It's time for you lying leftists to wake up. YOU'RE the problem, not Trump.

    perhaps......on the other hand, she could possibly call the police and have them arrest the guy trying to sell the gun illegally.....

    is that like two weekends in Chicago?.......I know, you're going to say that people can go buy guns in Indiana........but tell me, if guns are so easy to get in Indiana, why aren't the people in Indiana killing each other?.......

    Maybe instead of applauding cop killers such as just happened in Philly they should partner with police to rid their community of these vermin.

    I'll hold my breath on that.
