    There's zero chance of bypassing the background check in any of the gun shops I've done business with. We're looking at lots of hysterical words about a complete non-issue—from a Denver newspaper, of course.

    Firearms dealers are licensed by the Federal Government. They are "regulated" by the B.A.T.F. & E., an agency of the Federal Government. Federal license-holders do not answer to any state agency, although in some states dealers are also licenced by the state, or some cities within a state. This reporter should check and see if the dealers in question are state-licensed. If not, he can go in sit in the corner with his Teddy bear.

    Well, if Congress were to pass an appropriations bill limiting the ATF's spending with regards to stings & entrapment and requiring they use a certain percentage of their budget to inspect gun dealers there might be something done about this issue...
