SHOCK: Journalist Goes to Walmart to Find Out How Hard It Is to Get a Gun

Many gun control advocates and their media allies talk about how acquiring guns in America is easier to do than acquiring over-the-counter medicine.
Hayley Peterson, a journalist for Business Insider, went to a Walmart to find out how easy it is to get a gun.
Walmart is in the news because it was the site of the El Paso massacre, where a gunman killed 22 people.
However, Peterson had a different experience when she visited a Walmart in Virginia. She claimed that her trip to Walmart was “far more complicated than I expected.”
