Columnist fails gun check, blames store owners

A newspaper columnist is crying foul after a gun store rejected his application to purchase a firearm following a background check that uncovered his “admitted history of alcohol abuse, and a charge for domestic battery involving his wife.”

“Gun manufacturers and the stores that sell them make their money in the dark,” the Chicago Sun-Times’ Neil Steinberg wrote in his column following his failed attempt to purchase a rifle.

    And you thought integrity in journalism was dead.

    ‘He claimed he had hang-ups about financially supporting an industry he despises, but decided anyway to make the trek to the gun store, which he referred to as the “Valley of Death”‘

    Nope, no agenda there, none whatsoever.

    Article should have a proper headline:

    “Alcoholic wife beater attempts to buy firearm and is prevent by store owners”
