American Hunters and Shooters Association Billboard

If you believe they’re an alternative to the NRA, you’ve been fooled.

In other news, not only is John Rosenthal (President of American Hunters and Shooters Ass.) disingenuous, he’s also a felon:

During the show a reporter, Steve Bailey of the Boston Globe, explained how he and Rosenthal had attended a gun show in New Hampshire over a year ago. The trip was supposed to prove how easy it was for criminals to buy a handgun in New Hampshire. They actually found that it was not possible to do so without violating several laws.

Rosenthal explained that when he tried to purchase a handgun from a licensed dealer, he was told he could not because he was not a resident of New Hampshire. Bailey and Rosenthal then explained how they brought a New Hampshire resident with them, supposedly a prison guard, who was able to pass the background checks and purchase the gun for them. Bailey even stated on Finneranís show that the Boston Globe paid for the gun. When asked by the hosts of the show if he had committed a straw purchase, Rosenthal admitted that he had indeed conducted a straw purchase to prove a point.

See, if you break existing laws you can buy guns. So, we clearly need more laws. To, you know, break.

    Strictly speaking, they are indeed an alternative to the NRA, as surely as fascism is an alternative to freedom. Neither is a very good alternative, but that’s neither here nor there.

    Don’t tell anyone, but there’s a movement afoot to have NH investigate this transaction…

    He most certainly should be charged as should the prison guard and the Boston Globe.

    Is it the same movement that tried to put sarah brady, bloomberg’s investigators, CNN, and other law-breakers who make straw purchases in jail? Because those were so successful.
