[Ed. – Wouldn’t be the first time. Our stock “Bloomberg making a fool of himself” image goes nicely with this one, don’t you think?]
[O]ver at The Federalist, Sean Davis seems to have caught [producer Stephanie] Soechtig pretty much saying that her team engaged in illegal firearms transactions during the making of the film. Davis provided the federal statutes, the transcript, and the added bonus of saying that this is very, very illegal:
It turns out that Couric’s production team deliberately conspired to violate federal gun laws. According to video obtained by Ammoland, a shooting sports news website, one of Couric’s producers deliberately committed at least four separate felonies by purchasing four separate firearms across state lines without a background check.
SOECHTIG: We sent a producer out and he was from Colorado. He went to Arizona, and he was able to buy a Bushmaster and then three other pistols without a background check in a matter of four hours. And that’s perfectly legal. He wasn’t doing some sort of underground market.
And he just met someone in the parking lot of Wendy’s and bought a Bushmaster. Legally. Like, this is legal.
Except it’s not legal. Like, it’s illegal. Super duper illegal.
