I was under the impression that this thread was created, and the article linked, as a:

"LOL, this guy tried to show it was easy to get a gun, but he had to wait 20 days, he failed in his attempt to show how easy it was to get a gun!".


That's how I saw it as well. He kinda failed to get his point across because he wasn't able to just walk out of the store with the weapon. To be fair though, they probably didn't have any new AR-15s for sale, since they're back ordered like 6 months right now. So perhaps he should have planned this a bit better, maybe? What it looks like he accomplished was to show that the existing laws are working just fine.

As to the gun show angle, if he'd wanted to make a point about gun shows, then why didn't he go to a gun show? Seems a bit odd to buy a gun in a gun store, complete with existing background checks in place, and then argue about how easy it would have been to circumvent that process if he'd gone to a gun show. Um... How about showing up at a gun show and then trying to buy a gun using false identification, or no identification, or otherwise simulating the condition you're trying to convince people is a problem?
