How a Felon Buys a Gun
Published June 12, 2013
Under current law, a felon who wants to purchase a gun can go to two places and be greeted by a welcome mat, not a stop sign. Skirting the background check system in place at a gun store, a felon can simply help themselves to weapons at a gun show or online, with no questions asked.
Our latest infographic illustrates how the Manchin-Toomey background check bill would stop felons in their tracks by applying the same checks they would encounter at a store to sales at gun shows or through online advertisements. Because when it comes to buying a gun, felons should never get a green light.
