    Liberals are rabid about gun-control, but this is one story you'll never hear on CNN or MSNBC. The poor "immigrants" are just buying the guns that Americans won’t.


    "They have already committed a criminal act by staying in the country illegally, yet a number of the illegal aliens attempted to compound their transgressions by buying guns. According to a new report of background checks, the FBI has rejected a record number of illegal immigrants trying to purchase guns this year.

    The National Instant Criminal Background Check System said that it has turned away 7,836,600 attempted gun purchases from “illegal/unlawful alien” this year. The record covers the 2018 period until November, which means it still did not include data for December. Christmas purchases of guns are always typically high.

    The number of gun purchases being attempted by illegals has seen a rise in recent years. In 2017, it recorded 7.3 million. 2016 saw 7 million rejections, while 2015 recorded 6.6 million gun purchase rejections for the illegals..."

    Well, if 8 million tried to buy, then the number of illegals in this country is much, much higher than previously estimated.

    The left has always quoted "12-15 million." I'm going with 50 million though.

    Can you blame them? tRump has every gun-toting, drooling redneck in the nation whipped into a xenophobic frenzy.

    Previously I suspected 20-30. But you are probably much closer to being right. Geeesh.

    So you approve of the illegal possession of a firearm. Thank you.

    And President Trump caught hell for claiming that 5 million illegals voted. He was most likely correct in that estimate.

    My take away is that we need universal background checks on all purchases and exchanges. The gun lobby's press for blanket deregulation would put a gun in each of their hands one way or another. Then try evicting them.
