You got to hand it to the Democrats – they are experts in coming up with something stupid. Why buy a gun on the street when you can buy it in a store. That is what law abiding citizens do…
Apparently, Democrats like the illegal way.
Tennessee Democrats tweeted a video of House Democratic Caucus leader Mike Stewart trying to sell a gun in order to prove how easy it is to sell a gun by offering an AK-47 for sale at a lemonade stand. This video from April 5, ran for about 48 mins, but during that time no one bought the gun.
The video shows Stewart sitting behind the stand with the gun lying by pitchers of lemonade and packages of cookies. At first, he offers the gun for sale for $700 but says he will take $100 off the price if a buyer agrees to undergo a background check first.

There were no takers for the gun, the lemonade, or some cookies that were also for sale at the stand. But unfortunately for Stewart who sat there for over 48 minutes, there were no takers for the gun, the lemonade, or cookies that were also for sale at the stand.
Live on Union at a lemonade/AK-47 sale! https://t.co/BUjzVeBB6u

Early Wednesday afternoon before a House subcommittee, Rep. Stewart presented his bill HB1319, which restricts the sale or transfer of weapons to a federally licensed gun dealer where a background check is required.
House Republican colleagues listened for several minutes to Stewart but did not debate the issue before defeating the bill with a voice vote.
Does he have the proper federal authorization (FFL, per the Gun Control Act 0f 1968) to sell firearms publicly?
Or is this going to be another case of Democrats breaking federal laws and avoiding prosecution?
