FAKE NEWS: CNN’s Chris Cuomo Pushes False Story About Buying AR-15 Without ID, Then Lies About It

On Tuesday, CNN’s Chris Cuomo retweeted the account of one @usaphotodude quoting a reporter named Cody Davis. The tweet stated, “I was able to buy an AR-15 in five minutes. I’m 20 and my ID is expired.” There’s only one problem: that never happened. The article itself states, “After [the sales representative] walked me through the paperwork, all five pages of it, I told him I changed my mind and wanted to think more before I bought an AR-15. He told me it wasn’t a problem and listed the store hours if I wanted to come back. I then said thank you and walked back to my car.”

In other words, the guy couldn’t buy the gun without ID and a proper background check, as per federal law.
