Anti-gunners’ elicit illegal weapons transfer?

The Second Amendment Sisters have this entry on the MMM/Brady Campaign going undercover. It seems Linda S. Vaughn, the Southeast Region’s Senior Associate Director for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence United with the Million Mom March, may have tried to bait an ad to illicit potential illegal weapons transfers. Since she left her MMM/Brady Campaign office telephone number as the point of contact, the ruse was quickly discovered.

It doesn’t seem to me that any of the weapons listed were illegal (assuming they are pre-ban). It does seem to me that Linda was trying to conduct another of their studies (term used very, very loosely) on the acquisition of assault weapons.

Additionally, Linda’s actions have been reported to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.

Update: More significant information here.

    I’m not sure what I was expecting when I took the Metro into DC today to cover the “Million Mom March.” I had heard horror stories about the “moms” verbally and viciously accosting Second Amendment rights advocates. I read reports of other “mommies” vandalizing gun rights supporters’ property. I didn’t think I would be very welcome.

    I was wearing my Armed Females of America badge, a small digital camera, and I had my tape recorder with me to capture the moment. I expected to be treated with hostility…. Read more:

    If this person was really trying to buy an illegal weapon why aren’t the authorities charging them? Imagine if the NRA tried to buy an illegal weapon. The ATF, MMM, Brady bunch and the national news networks would be banging down doors!!
