DOJ Report Reveals A Whopping Percentage Of Criminals' Firearms Obtained Through Underground Market

A new report issued by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Statistics that examines where criminals get their guns offers a disturbing statistic: Data showed that a whopping 43% of the prisoners surveyed had obtained it off the street or from the underground market, while 7% had found it at the scene of the crime and 6% had stolen it. Additionally, 25% had obtained it from a family member or friend, or as a gift. The survey added, “Among prisoners who possessed a firearm during the offense for which they were imprisoned, 7% of state and 10% of federal prisoners serving a sentence in 2016 bought or traded for the firearm from a gun shop or gun store.”

I don't believe it, I don't see the gun show loophole referenced.

Just because you don’t see them doesn’t mean they don’t exist. Much like Bigfoot and unicorns and equally as useless.

I hadn’t seen a sign at the MOA for a long time but I did see one at an entrance this year. But it was on the side wall of an entrance after you walked in the door. Like in the tunnel way area of the entrance. Nobody looks there. Not sure why I did but thought it was weird placement. Either way, no impact on me...or the criminals who carry there all the time I’m sure.

Huh, weird. You would think people would respect the wishes of MOA I mean after they cracked down on those BLM protesters I don't know who would mess with them.
