    This reminds me of the anti-gun reporter from Illinois a few years ago who tried to buy a gun to show how easy it was, and then failed the background check due to a domestic violence charge.

    I went to Walmart with the intention of buying a gun last week as part of an investigation into the placement, selection, marketing, and security of firearms in Walmart's stores, and to learn more about the retailer's processes governing gun sales.
    Because gun retailers can vary the practices of selling firearms as it suits them......in the mind of a liberal.

    But my liberal friends and colleagues, none of whom own guns, told me I could buy dog food, some new shoes, and a gun of my choosing while going through the self checkout.

    My impression as well.
    Maybe not "posing as anti-gun", but just reporting it factually.

    Yeah, read her Tweets, she ain't pro gun.
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

I hope her photo goes far and wide in VA and no one deals with her, even if she bothers to show up with all the right credentials. I also wondered what she was going to with that $160 rifle she was going to buy? She clearly had no interest in using it. Would she give it to a friend, try to sell it on the black market, lose it, have it stolen, put it in the Eric Holder pipeline to Mexico, and then use that experience to write her next anti-2A article?
    I didn't get ANY of that vibe at all.

    If she was as "anti" as that, she would have either NOT published her results, or she would have done it until it could be twisted to suit her agenda.

    I didn't see an agenda here.

    It's almost like when a noob posts a valid question on the forum, and you always have a few people who shout "TROLL!"
    Some people have everyone "pegged" as something nefarious no matter what.

    OK, I'll trust you on that because I don't care enough to look for them.

    That leaves "factual reporting".
    I'm not seeing the problem here.

    True. The fact that she was willing to post the actual facts leads me to believe that she is at least neutral on the issue, if not pro gun.

    I saw the thread title and thought I'd see this, maybe there's another thread someone about this one, if not ....

    Liberal Chicago Sun-Times Journalist Reporter Neil Steinberg attempted to purchase an AR-15 "assault weapon" rifle from a local gun store, in an attempt to display how easy the process is, but failed in an epic way, then he attempted to bury the story.
