This hit the early Facebook yesterday:
I did a double take. My memory might be fading some with age, but I was sure that was not the way it happened. I did not have to go too far to check, the link that Moms provided was enough.
The buyer was Mark Manes, a 22-year-old computer technician whose mother is a member of Handgun Control Inc.
Manes did not own his new assault weapon (TEC-DC9) for long. Phillip Duran, a friend who worked at a Blackjack Pizza parlor in Jefferson County, told him “two guys” at the pizza place were looking for a TEC-9. On Jan. 23, at another Tanner Gun Show, Duran introduced Manes to the two guys. They were both 17, too young to buy a handgun legally. But Manes offered to sell it for $500, and they agreed.
That night, Manes sold the gun at the house where he lived with his parents, on a suburban street not far from Columbine High.
The buyers were Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris.
And next: the Shotgun and the Hi Point 9mm carbine:
Investigators still don’t know who sold the carbine there. But they identified the buyer as an 18year-old Columbine student, Robyn Anderson. She was accompanied by two 17-year-olds, Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris, and shopping with their cash.
Anderson bought the two shotguns at the same show.
Federal law forbids gun dealers to sell shotguns or rifles to anyone younger than 18. It also forbids “straw” sales to someone obviously acquiring guns for people ineligible to buy them.
So, one gun never saw a Gun show and was sold illegally to minors by a son of a member of Handgun Control Inc. which is now know and The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. The others were bought legally and then passed to the two Columbine morons making it a Straw Purchase which was illegal.
Universal Background Checks would have not prevented Columbine in pretty much the same way the laws at the time did not. When people are willing to break the law, it does not matter how many extra words you put in it, they will still break it. This concept seems to escape Madam Shannon Watson and her group…then again maybe they are aware but they don’t mind the lying as long as they can collect money for His Divinity, Pimp Daddy Bloomberg.
“Gun owners are required to report the theft of guns to the police,” Barrett said. “If an assault weapon that has been registered ends up in the wrong hands and is used in a crime, the police will know who is legally responsible – the gun owner.”

I understand now why Bloomberg was elected and re-elected. He ran under the Idiocy platform and there is a glut of followers of that trend of the in NYC.
“The Internet has become one of the major and most dynamic modes of communication,” the report warns. “The Internet can link people, groups and organizations together instantly. Moreover, it allows an extraordinary amount of unregulated data and information to be located in one area and available to all. The right wing has seized upon the Internet as a means of communicating its ideas to people. Moreover, evidence exists that Republican staffers surf the Internet, interacting with extremists in order to exchange ideas and information.”

That is a partial from a document called: “The Communication Stream of Conspiracy Commerce,” written by the Clinton Administration (possibly Hillary herself) and bitching about the freedom of the Internet.
There is no doubt that the Internet was a game changer in the fight for Gun Rights. The Establishment could no longer control neither the flow of information nor the grouping of like-minded individuals and its eventual organization into a more cohesive and effective group which is a tough thing to do when you are trying to herd a bunch of individualists.
I said it in a past post and I will repeat it again: If Al Gore (A.K.A. the Father of the Internet ) would have thought the Interwebs would create this much trouble, he would have strangled that baby with its umbilical cord.

Not a Joke. Actually posted in the official MAIG’s Everytown For Gun Safety Facebook page:
And you may ask yourself, Who is the “genius” responsible for this sheer idiocy? The answer is: Kevin Call.
He is also the “Director of Social Media” for MAIG and used to work for The Raben Group, a DC Lobby organization aligned with very powerful entities such as the Joyce Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation.
I am guessing Mr. Call is the one that failed to secure the Everytown Facebook page, but he was indeed the one that went crying to the Zuckenberg tribe about the mean Gun Bullies stealing it.
