A 13-year-old boy from Virginia tried to buy lottery tickets and porn magazines in 2014, that was denied. He tried to buy alcohol and cigarettes, that too was denied because of his age.
But when he went to a gun show, he apparently purchases a .22 bolt-action rifle for a handful of cash.
“It should shoot pretty good for you,” the seller says, handing over the rifle.
“I’ll take it,” the boy responds.
The video was shared 25,000 times after being re-posted on Twitter on Thursday. The boy, a young actor, showed us 2 years ago how easy it is to buy a gun in this country.
Nothing has changed, more innocent people died. But now there is hope.
Finally, the Democrats must have found their spine, they are standing up -sitting down- for a change in our guns laws.
A change that so many hope for. Will things change? Will the NRA (National Rifle Association of America) allow the Republican party to vote for stricter gun laws? (They do need to ask permission right? Or can you bite the hand that feeds you?)
The Republican party calls the sit-in by the Democrats a publicity stunt. I am fine with it. Even if it would just be a circus act, what better place could they have chosen, then the biggest circus we have…the congress.
Inside Democrats shout “SHAME, SHAME”, outside people shout “DO YOUR JOB! “
Will they finally do their job? I hope so, I truly hope so.
The second amendment has been abused over and over. I don’t care if the shooter is a crazy Catholic, a radical Islamist, or a disturbed Atheist. The only thing I care about is a stricter gun law. A young boy shouldn’t be able to buy a gun. NEVER! EVER!
It is time for a change, it is time for stricter gun laws!
Today I am proud to be a democrat (with a lower “d”). I am in awe.
