VPC office: Hello, Violence Policy Center.
Me: Hi, I was wondering what firearms you have in stock. I'ld like to buy one.
VPC flunky: What!? We don't sell firearms here. They're scary!
Me: But your president is a licensed dealer. He's in the business of buying and selling firearms. This is his registered office.
VPC flunky: No he doesn't. We don't have any firearms here.
Me: Really, he does. Google it. I would like to buy a firearm from him.
VPC flunky: Mr. Sugarmann is not in the business of dealing death.
Me: Actually, by supporting Criminal Empowerment zones, he really is, but we're getting off the topic. Are you saying he has no firearm inventory?
VPC flunky: That's right.
Me: And he doesn't do special orders?
VPC flunky: NO!
Me: So he's not in the business of firearms?
VPC flunky: Certainly not!
Me: Can I quote you?
VPC flunky: Yes.
Me: Thank you. Have a nice day.

You did this? For real?

I'm as much an advocate of abolition of the ATF as any self-professed "absolutist" out there, but I would love nothing more than to see Sugarmann be stripped of his FFL and hauled off to federal prison for such a blatant violation of the law.

Kinda thought so, but one never knows....

Wait--do you mean this VPC--the one that gloated not long ago about the closing of tens of thousands of "kitchen-table" Federal Firearms Licensees, "who operated out of their homes or offices"?
