2A's Lighter Side

NBC Reporter Commits Gun Felony to Prove Felons Exist



Why yes, crime DID just surge. Because of you.

Journalists: They’re just like you and me, only BETTER!

The Second Amendment Foundation is calling for an investigation of possible gun law violations by NBC News and the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s office while producing and filming an undercover “hidden camera investigation” at a gun show, focusing on sales of so-called “ghost gun” kits.

NBC reporter Vaughn Hillyard took his hidden camera into the Oaks, Penn. Eagle Gun Show to purchase two P80 firearm kits from JSD Supply. Those kits, generically called “80 percenters” because they require some finishing work by the buyer, were subsequently taken to the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s office where they were finished, assembled and actually fired on camera. The report aired on March 17.

“This sort of sensationalism is designed to generate ratings and raise viewer alarms,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “However, our alarms were raised because of the possible felonies that may have been committed by the reporter and the office of Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro.”

The issue was initially raised by Ammoland journalist John Crump, who frequently writes about the firearms industry. Ammoland is an online publication covering all aspects of firearms news and is one of the most widely-read gun news sites in the U.S. According to Crump’s report, “The news crew transferred two complete ‘readily convertible’ kits out of the parts they purchased separately at the show. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) previously viewed ‘buy, build, shoot’ kits as readily convertible and, therefore, a firearm…If the ATF still keeps to that definition, Hillyard, an out-of-state resident, transferred two ‘readily convertible’ firearms (pistols) kits illegally to the Pennsylvania AG’s employees to complete. There is not an exception in the law for any AG’s ‘special agents,’ which means that the agents must obey all laws.”

“You cannot violate federal gun laws to complain about gun laws and promote a gun control agenda, even as a working journalist,” Gottlieb stated. “We call on the Biden Justice Department to investigate possible violations of federal gun law, same as that agency would investigate any private citizen who had done the same thing. You don’t get a pass simply by working for NBC.”


We here at Freedom’s Lodge think that Mr. Gottlieb is being a bit optimistic. It’s actually quite common for mainstream-media journalists to do things like this or things like it. (Another big one is to try to buy handguns across state lines at gun shows.) It’s extremely rare that they are ever prosecuted for the felonies that they proudly commit on camera and then broadcast to the world. We’d like to issue a challenge to state and federal authorities: Prove that you’re actually interested in enforcing our existing gun laws by treating this reporter the way you’d treat a random YouTuber who did the same thing.

We’ll hold our breath.

    Or we could not be tattle tales and just let it go like we gun owners would like for them to do for us, you know, the whole “do unto others” bit of wisdom Jesus gave us! Besides, we all know ALL GUN LAWS are an infringement, so why would we EVER push to have them enforced, even against our supposed enemies?!?

      It used to be that investigation news would go after corruption in corporations, companies polluting streams and rivers, forcing employees to using hazardous products, not anymore. Today they want advertising money so no more going after big corporations.
      Today the news media has a vendetta against the 2nd amendment and bowing to the U.N. and the New World Order.

      In the 1960′ to 1970’s, the gun banning groups wanted all handguns banned, then in the 1980’s, gun banning politicians wanted to ban Uzi’s claiming that every drug dealer, gang member and felon owned one ( they probably watched too many episodes of”Miami Vice”), then in the late 1980’s when Glock handguns arrived, the gun banners claimed they were used to hijack airplanes, what nonsense. Nowadays Glock handguns are used by half police department in America. Then in the 1990’s, the demoncraps banned semi auto rifles claiming that this would stop all crime in America. Rifles of any kind are used in few crimes.
      Rifles are used in only 400 shooting a year.
      Fists and feet kill over 1,700 to 2,000 a year.
      Train accidents kill over 2,000 a year.
      Car accidents kill over 50,000 a year.
      Illegal drugs kill over 100,000 a year.
      Lung cancer ( from cigarettes) kills over 450,000 a year.
      Cancer kills over 1 million a year.

      Now, the gun banning groups and politicians are saying every criminal, drug dealer, gang member has a so called ” ghost gun”, again what nonsense. Do they really think that drug dealers pick up a parts kit and 80% receiver and go to a machine shop to have it properly machined? Many articles claim there are millions of ” black market” guns on the streets.

      The gun banning groups claim that criminals can put together a 80% parts kit in less time then it takes to fill up your cars gas tank. Where do they come up with such nonsense?

      In demoncrap run cities, when criminals are arrested, they are realised on “no bail”.
      People arrested for murder, are released on a $1.00 bail to go out and commit more murders, and the demoncraps blame it on guns.

      Maybe if these demoncrap run cities would stop listening to a bunch of loud mouth criminals, rioters looters, protesters and arsonist and stopped trying to defund-abolish the police and let the police go out and arrest these criminals and put them in prison for long sentences then the crime rate would go down. It’s as simple as that.

      In commiefornia, criminals break into railroad cars stealing merchandise. If and when they are ever caught, they are not charged with any crime because they are a ” minority and poor”.

      In commiefornia, in broad daylight shoplifter’s walk into clothing stores and grab arm fulls of clothes off the racks and walk out to a waiting car and drive off. No one does anything to stop them execpt to film it on their cell phones and post it on YouTube. If and when these shoplifter’s are ever caught they aren’t charged with any crime and are let go because they are a ” minority and poor”.

      The administration is having sections of the border wall taken down and sold off for scrap. This allows the cartels, M 13 gang members, M18 gang members, drug dealers, criminals, murderers, felons, terrorists, spies, and prostitutes to cross over the border and commit crimes in America and the administration welcomes this.

      The Central America countries and South America countries are emptying out their jails and prisons and sending thousands of convicts and prisoners to America and the administration welcomes them and the crime that they bring.

      Over two million illegals crossed the border in 2021, they go on welfare and ADC, with some collecting as much as $3,000 a month because they have 10 kids. Property taxes will go up to pay for schools.
      In Central America, one of the caravan leaders ( over 30,000 heading to America). said if they are not allowed to cross the border then this means war!

      In Paris, France, illegals have taken over parts of the city and now demand that citizens leave as it is now their city and they are not wanted.

      America cannot become the dumping ground for all the world’s poor, unemployed and criminals.
      Do we really want America to end up like India with over a billion people living on the streets, alleys, sidewalks, and gutters and having to eat garbage out of dumpsters?
      Finish the border wall now!
      Some articles say as many as 3 to 5 million could cross the open borders this year alone.
      Finish the border wall now!

      In commie Rhode island, the demoncrap politicians are working on a bill to ban all magazines over 10 rounds and to make it a felony to own just one with a year in prison!
      How soon before these evil politicians say 10 rounds is too many? Next they will want to ban all magazines over 5 rounds.

      They are also working on a bill to make people fill out forms, get a background check and wait 5 days just to purchase reloading equipment!

      The demoncrap politicians are working onn bills to make a person fill out forms, get a background check, wait 7 days just to purchase one box of ammo. And to limit a person to only one box of ammo a week!

      The gun banning groups and hunting banning groups are run and funded by Micheal Bloomberg, George Soros, the Chinese government, the U.N., Russia, North Korea and Mexico.
      Remember that a country cannot be taken over by foreign country if it’s citizens own firearms.

      Russia invades the Ukraine and the Ukraine government hands out AK-47’S to it’s citizens to fight off the Russians.
      Biden and Beto say ” hell yeah, were going to come and take away your AR-15’S and AK-47’S!”

      China wants Australia, New Zealand, and America.
      China is buying up American farmland and ranch and so is Saudi Arabia.

      During WW2, Germany and Japan had plans to invade the east coast and west coast of America and wanted Mexico to invade the southern states promising Mexico to give them Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. But they were worried about all the Americans who owned firearms and would fight them off. Nowadays they are working together to ban firearms in America.

      Mexico voted against sanction on Russia. Russia and Mexico work together on oil and gold production. There are tens of thousands of Russians in Mexico, just like in Venezuela where they are sending tanks and military equipment. Cuba is also a Russian base.

      Remember the movie “Red Dawn”?

      There are thousands of KGB and sabatoures in America waiting for Putin to give them the signal to attack power companies, water plants, office buildings.

      AOC and the squad and Letitia James want to repeal the 2nd amendment.
      AOC and the squad want to replace the Constitution and Bill of Rights with something out of Castro and Stalin handbook and turn America into a ” Communist workers paradise”.

      Why is it that back in the 1950’s one could walk into a hardware store, gun shop or mail order all kinds of firearms, with no background check, no forms to fill out, and no waiting period and crime was much lower than today.

      Support and protect your right to keep and own all types of firearms and accessories. Don’t allow the evil, far leftist, Satan worshipping politicians to restrict and ban firearms in America.

      Buy more guns, ammo and magazines now before it’s too late!

    Very well said. Anti-gun puppets who are ignorant of the very laws they’re trying to push upon us. And as we know, “ignorance of the law is no excuse.”

    And no, nothing will happen. I’ve seen idiot news crews race through stop signs and red lights to “get to a story.”

    These jerks think they’re above the law like nearly every politician in this country.
