Watch how easy it is for a teenager to purchase a gun and smuggle it across state lines. » Subscribe to NowThis: http://go.nowth.is/News_Subscribe In gun control news, NowThis News carried out an experiment to see how easy and fast it was to carry out a gun running exercise between Indiana an Chicago. Chicago gun laws are notoriously tough, but gun runners have no problem getting around gun reform laws and bringing in guns from neighboring states. This issue is a central part of the gun control debate. Chicago does not have the nation’s strictest gun laws. It does not have the highest gun violence, and the gun violence it does have might have more to do with what’s happening right here in Indiana, the home state of Mike Pence, Pete Buttigieg, and some of the loosest gun laws in the nation. Our buyer did need to be an Indiana resident. Fortunately, we met up with a local activist who was happy to help us out. We’re going to a gun store in Hammond, IN. It’s one of the top stores that sells guns in Indiana that end up at crime scenes in Chicago. Nick: I am a current student at Indiana University. I am very concerned about loopholes that we might have here in the state of Indiana and the country as a whole. My generation has been plagued by these high school shootings, and I really want to test it out to see if me, personally, if I can go out and buy a gun today. So I just started my timer on this. Buying the gun ended up taking a little longer than we were expecting. All right, so I went in there to use the bathroom ’cause we’d been waiting a while. So, first of all, the reason we’re waiting a while is not because he’s doing an extended background check. There’s just a really long line. Secondly, this place looks like it’s a sporting goods store. They got the deer outside. There were so many handguns in there! There was just this wall of handguns, so many of them! When you said that this was where guns from Chicago’s shootings come from, I thought, ‘How could that be? Are they shooting deer in Chicago?’ Yeah, the actual process of background check and purchasing took less time than the process of waiting in line. The background check form, we did it all on an iPad, and it was basically, ‘Have you been convicted of a felony?’ Yes, no. No, no, no. So that process was probably five minutes, and then him having to go in and look at everything through the FBI— that database that you were talking about earlier? I would say, five to ten minutes. So the purchasing process from beginning to end, 25-30 minutes. I actually thought it was kind of crazy how easy it was. The NRA’s supporters say that Chicago is proof that gun laws don’t work, and there is a kernel of truth in that. and if neighboring areas have weaker laws. So could it be that the NRA is making the strongest case possible for federal gun regulation?
