FBI: A Record Number of Illegal Immigrants Tried to Buy Guns in 2018
They have already committed a criminal act by staying in the country illegally, yet a number of the illegal aliens attempted to compound their transgressions by buying guns. According to a new report of background checks, the FBI has rejected a record number of illegal immigrants trying to purchase guns this year.
The National Instant Criminal Background Check System said that it has turned away a record number of attempted gun purchases from “illegal/unlawful alien” this year. The record covers the 2018 period until November, which means it still did not include data for December. Christmas purchases of guns are always typically high.
Illegal immigrants also rank at the top of those on the FBI’s “prohibited category” for gun purchases, followed by those with “adjudicated mental health”, those “convicted of a crime punishable by more than one year or a misdemeanor punishable by more than two years”, “state prohibitor” and those with “misdemeanor crime of domestic violence conviction.”
Illegal immigrants top the next category for prohibited gun purchases by more than 2 million cases.
Rounding up the top ten categories for those attempting to buy guns illegally, although in much lower numbers are those “’under indictment”, those with “’protection/restraining order for domestic violence”, those with “renounced citizenship”, those with “unlawful user/addicted to controlled substance”, those with “dishonorable discharge” and those who are “fugitive from justice.”
CORRECTION: An earlier version confused the number of attempted purchases with active records of individuals prohibited from purchasing a gun.
