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.
