True. BUT! It WORKS for those conducting the sting, so they keep using it.
Those people getting caught by the investigators. The people selling the guns, (whomever they may be) are NOT the sharpest knife in the drawer, not even half smart, or they would keep their mouth shut when they take the $$$ and the person buying it asks their "sting" questions.
They WILL catch a LOT more as time goes on. Sellers who just want to sell and don't care who they are selling to. It IS a bummer for the sellers, the government AND people like me (I am anti/against terrorists and even the bad neighbor a couple houses down from me on my street who committed a crime and lost their privilege/right to own firearms SHOULD NOT own firearms) are wanting sellers NOT to see firearms to THOSE people.
We NEED them (sellers) to help us out a little bit. If the guy standing in front of you wants to buy your rifle/pistol/etc is a person you recognized on America's Top 10 or the bulletin board at the local post office, then PLEASE, don't sell them the firearm.
YES, the "stings" ARE BS. But the sellers don't seem to want to clean up their act on their own.
Remember, they are just catching the ""not so smart" ones mostly with their "little" stings. "Little" meaning $1.5 MILLION worth of taxpayers money is WRONG WRONG WRONG. Use the of the POS anti-guns people. They seem to sure get the donations.
Luke would like to get some of "that" money I would bet! He could have USACarry running on a pure gold computer on just a very very small amount of the money "THOSE" people donate, wanting to take everyone's firearms away.
They NEED to stick to taking them away from criminals. Never going to happen that way. They just screw with "US" because... because "WE" obey the laws.
Sad state of affairs, no matter how we look at it.
