Gun shop owners are selling guns to the public in a new way: selling them to law enforcement.
The guns are usually sold on a “black market” that sells guns to a “gun show” or to a private individual who is then able to buy the gun and return it to the store for the same price.
The dealers also often sell the guns at retail outlets where there are no restrictions on how they can be used in a crime, such as gun shows.
“I have two guns, both I bought for $20 each.
The first one was bought by a guy in Virginia.
The second one was sold by a gun show owner in Florida,” said Scott Wortzel, owner of Tactical Gun in Columbia, South Carolina.
Wortzel said he sells weapons to the FBI, ATF and the U,S.
He said the weapons are used to defend the home and family of law enforcement officers, and are sold for $200.
“They are a way to give back to our community,” he said.
But the ATF says it is illegal for gun dealers to sell guns to people who aren’t licensed to carry.
“Anytime you buy a firearm, it is your responsibility to ensure that the firearm you purchase meets all of the federal and state firearm safety requirements,” ATF spokeswoman Sarah Tarkington said in a statement.
The ATF also has no guidelines to govern the sale of a firearm to someone who is not licensed to possess or transport it.
The National Rifle Association, which represents gun dealers, also opposes such laws.
The organization has lobbied against the Obama administration’s gun control proposals.
