CBS Producer in HOT WATER After Lying On Federal Gun Form

CBS News is in trouble after they attempted to criticize a gun store and gun laws by buying an AR-15 and showing how easy it is to do so.

Producer Paula Reid visited SpecDive to buy the weapon. When asked to fill out forms Reid blatantly lied about her intent to transfer the weapon to a third party.

CBS, during their report, was eager to mention that it only took Reid 38 minutes to buy the weapon. However, they failed to mention that she lied on the forms, and by doing so committed a federal felony.

Kris Van Cleeve, reporter for CBS, said during the segment:

As for the rifle we legally purchased, it was transferred to a federally licensed firearm dealer and weapons instructor in Virginia following state law within hours of us purchasing the weapon.

Maybe if the Feds would follow-up with CBS they would see that it is CBS who should be accountable, not SpecDive and gun dealers in general.

    no. they did not legally purchase the gun. Another lie .

    This reminds me of the reporter arrested for possession he bought drugs on camera then told the police. He was shocked when they arrested him and the police said what did you think we would do you have illegal narcotics and that is against the law. A quick note to people breaking the law to try to prove a point is still breaking the law !

    Laws? We ain’t got no laws. We don’t need no laws. WeI don’t have to follow any of your stinkin’ laws!

      That’s the DemoCommieSCUMboRATZ mantra!!

  • Frederic Charles Hilnbrand

    I want to hear how much JAIL time she gets for LYING on her form!! For IF she told the truth she would NOT have gotten the gun. Here is MORE media BS for you. CBS and CNN are the worst of them.

  • Name

    As with all people committing felonies, she needs to be prosecuted and sent to prison. She also loses her rights to own a gun and vote. CBS should also be charged with aiding and abetting.

  • Susan P

    I realize the 1st Amendment gives some privilege to news reporters, but why does that make them think they can ignore all other laws? She should be arrested, charged and prosecuted for the felony of lying on the federal form. No special privilege here for journalist. Make an example of her! Also, include her bosses at CBS and anyone else involved in the commission of this crime.

    Folks are missing the point, when the citizens no longer have guns; then the libs/dems/government can take over, and we will no loner be free. Read your history, it happened in Germany and looked how that turned out. Gov. is all ready changing our history books to make them PC. We, the people of this country, must tell our senators/congressman, to keep the second amendment in force. We have been GIVEN the right to have weapons under the constitution of this country.

      First off I gave you an up-vote! I think I know where you’re coming from and I’m a NRA member but what you stated is a Carte Blanche Every body, bar none, gets to own a gun!
      Do you want the corner drug pusher armed, do you want his higher ups armed?? Do you want the likes of Baby Faced Nelson running around armed?? Hows about Bonnie and Clyde, Al Capone, Dillinger, etc.
      The laws, which I’m NOT totally in love with, are there to hopefully prevent the bad guys from getting guns and being armed!!!!

        Hey, Old Codger: How’re those “only the elitist progressives and criminals (am I repeating myself?) can be protected by guns”.laws working out for us? What are the differences between Bonnie, Clyde, Capone, and Dillinger in PRE-GCA and and Tsarnaev brothers, Roof, “El Chapo,” and Mateen POST- GCA? You say only “more innocents were killed Post- GCA? That means NOT effective. Consider Switzerland’s record. The corner drug pushers and bad guys don’t seem to be concerned about flaunting the laws, while good guys (Police and CCW citizens) are prevented from defending themselves and others. I may agree the laws’ INTENTIONS are laudable, but their EFFICACY is laughable..

      • old codger

        I hear ya and agree but while buster, above me, seems (?) to state that do away with everything and go “strictly” by the 2nd Amendment which is Constitutional, YES, but doing so would allow guns to the likes of: Bonnie and Clyde, Al Capone, Dillinger, Baby Faced Nelson, corner drug pusher, etal! It’s bad enough now “WITH” gun control laws, IMAGINE HOW BAD IT WOULD BE without GCL’s!!!
        That was all I was trying to point out! I don’t like the gun laws per say BUT no gun laws means EVERYONE INCLUDING CRIMINALS are allowed guns! At best it’s a double edged sword or a damned if you do and damned if you don’t scenario!!
        I know the old saying; “if guns are outlawed then only outlaws will have guns” but with “NO GUN LAWS” EVERYONE INCLUDING the outlaws/ criminals will “LEGALLY” have guns! I don’t think ANYONE, including you and I want to see that either!
