Does the internet do background checks?

I call bullshit:

A Collier County man is having second thoughts about selling his AK-47 online because of the buyers the rifle has attracted this week. He says most of the people that responded to his posting are convicted felons.

And how do you know that? The guy claims to do background checks. Really? How do you without access to NICS? Or are you really spending $19.99 a pop to have some agency do them? You know, for a $1,000 gun (which, by the way, way too much for an AK).

And MSNBC bought this story?

    Craig’s List doesn’t allow the sale of weapons. As soon as you try, someone usually reports it and the ad is pulled. Either this story is fabricated or it was an elaborate sting w/ the involvement of Craig’s List, and I truly doubt the latter.

    I’ve seen guns and gun-related merchandise for sale on craigslist all the time. I routinely check it for deals.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
