Or sold over the border in another fast and furious scam.
And as you say the owner of that AR-15, unless it was really *hot*, could have but that in a gun store on consignment and gotten close to ten times the value of that gift card. It probably would have sold with in thirty minutes of being advertised. Most gun shops don't have much left to sell.
I'm wondering if these so called gift cards are nothing more than pre-loaded food stamp cards paid for with tax payers dollars.
