Turns out he lied on the part of the form where one would identify themselves as a nutbag – big surprise.

So while legislators eager for a few more votes from the ‘take my money because I can’t fight back’ lobby will call for greater controls – I’m left to ask “why did the system fail?” “Why was the letter of the law not enforced?” It looks like in this case, the only agency that was doing its job right was in fact the gun shop. We cannot hold them responsible if the government control which they must and – did – follow, failed.
