Gee...imagine that. You post the same information I posted back to me.<quoted text>
"Mr. Alexis did not attempt to buy an AR-15 from Sharpshooters Small Arms Range," Attorney J. Michael Slocum told TPM in an email. "He asked about purchasing a handgun (no brand specified) but he was told that he could not purchase a handgun except for delivery to his home state through another Federally-licensed firearm dealer. He then decided to purchase the Remington 870 express shotgun."
AND...that doesn't say anywhere that he attempted to buy an AR-15...just as I said.
So thank you for proving my point.
