    Local newspaper reporter Helen Ubiñas said that she was horrified by her obscene experience this week in buying a Smith & Wesson M&P 15 ( S&W's version of the AR-15 rifle ) in only 7 minutes at a Philadelphia gun store. She was totally appalled at how easy it was for her to buy the gun, and how the instant background check process went through so very fast. Furthermore, the clerks at the gun store did not even question her for her motives in buying the rifle!!!

    She was further disgusted by the fact that the gun store had the M&P 15 on sale, and it only cost her $759.99 to purchase! She said that just about anyone can afford to buy an AR-15! Don't you agree that is just totally revolting that AR-15 rifles are so affordable and easy to buy??

    After leaving the gun store, Ubiñas then drove immediately to the Philadelphia police department's Sixth District on 11th and Winter streets, to surrender the rifle to have it destroyed. She complained bitterly that multiple police officers that she first spoke to were initially totally stumped by her request to have them destroy a brand new rifle that she had just purchased. But she eventually got them to give her the necessary paperwork to fill out, in order to surrender the rifle to them.

    She was very upset that the process to turn in a gun to the police proved to be more complicated and took much more time than it took for her to buy the rifle!!

    This reporter is really super angry and outraged about her experience in buying this rifle. Just look at this indignant expression on her face:

    She should have done the smart thing and give me the AR for proper disposal.

    She's from Philly? The birthplace of our 2nd Amendment rights. Sad.

    Alas, she is married.

    Here is a photo of her with her parents and hubby when she was given an alumni award by the Community College that she graduated from.

    Her lucky guy is on the right:

    Just another Bloomberg tool....

    But if she has such disgust and contempt for an AR-15, why'd she pose with it?!?!?

    Liberals make no sense to me...

    I dont understand.. what is the point of her story? Is she a felon? Illegal? On the terrorist list, under investigation? if not, then why shouldn't a law abiding person not get a ar-15 in 7 minutes?
    Sounds like this hooplehead just proved that the BGC system they have there works.

    I read that a reporter bought a pair of steel toe boots today...took him 4 minutes...the clerk didn't ask what he intended to do with the boots.
    So he put them on and kicked the life out of a clerk at a liquor store.

    I can't wait for next weeks installment ...
