City of Chicago suing Indiana gun store

The City of Chicago has filed a lawsuit against a gun store in Indiana.

The lawsuit alleges that Westforth Sports, Inc., in Gary, has sold nearly 200 guns to at least 40 people who later end up charged with federal crimes.

Investigators say many of those guns have ended up on Chicago’s streets, having been found at crime scenes just hours after being purchased from the store.

They also say Westforth Sports has been ignoring signs of “straw purchasing,” which is when a person buys a gun on behalf of someone else, as well as being involved in gun trafficking.

If Chicago’s allegations were true, President Potato’s ATF would be all over that gun store.

This is just blatant bullying by the thugs in Chicago politics.

If background checks worked criminals wouldn’t have guns…or drugs…or stolen cars…or anything else that was against the law.
Also, they wouldn’t do all that other stuff that makes them criminals.

Let’s stop drunk driving by making it harder for sober people to get cars…idiots.
