A far-left reporter pushing a far-left narrative on guns while omitting the facts? What are the odds?
Enter CNN’s Chris Cuomo…
From Daily Wire:
On Tuesday, CNN’s Chris Cuomo retweeted the account of one @usaphotodude quoting a reporter named Cody Davis. The tweet stated, “I was able to buy an AR-15 in five minutes. I’m 20 and my ID is expired.” There’s only one problem: that never happened. The article itself states, “After [the sales representative] walked me through the paperwork, all five pages of it, I told him I changed my mind and wanted to think more before I bought an AR-15. He told me it wasn’t a problem and listed the store hours if I wanted to come back. I then said thank you and walked back to my car.”
In other words, the guy couldn’t buy the gun without ID and a proper background check, as per federal law.
But that’s not what Cuomo tweeted out.
Hey, @ChrisCuomo from CNN. Saw the article you retweeted: “I WAS ABLE TO BUY AN AR-15 IN 5 MINUTES”
Did you see the part where he admits to neither filling out the necessary paperwork (which would initiate the background check) NOR purchasing the AR-15? Weird. pic.twitter.com/wLfaiKCqaM

When called on it, Cuomo tweeted, “Isn’t the point that the kid’s age and lack of ID wasn’t a deterrent? and this isn’t all gun shops. Place I bought my shotgun basically goes farther than the law requires and makes judgments about whom to sell to. Point is the system should be better.”
Downtrend has more:
Davis’ “gun buying” experience was very easy because he didn’t actually do anything remotely related to buying a firearm. I can’t even figure out what this Bozo is trying to prove with this nonsense. Does he think anyone is impressed that it only takes minutes to look at, but not actually buy, an AR-15? I guess so, because this is how he summed things up:
Ultimately these are the laws we have, this shop hasn’t done anything wrong. But if a 20-year-old college student can walk into a gun shop and be out in minutes with an AR-15, and you believe nothing needs to be changed, you need help.
No, Davis needs help because he thinks taking a picture with a gun is the same thing as buying one. He needs help because he’s a pathological liar. He really needs help because he’s so delusional he thinks this exposes a loophole or flaw in our gun laws.
Both Cuomo and Davis should be ashamed.
This is bush league and they know it!
