CBS recently aired a story called, “CBS News producer shows how easy it is to buy an assault rifle.” In the segment, the reporter Paula Reid can be seen walking out of a store called SpecDive Tactical, LLC carrying out a brown gun case containing an AR-15. The owner of the store SpecDive Tactical, LLC has responded to the purchase and has filed a complaint with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and Virginia State Police claiming that Paula Reid and CBS news purchased the weapon under false pretenses and committed a federal crime. According to SpecDive Tactical, LLC:
SDT General Manager, Ryan Lamke, conducted the transaction for Ms. Reid and stated, “Ms. Paula Reid came into the shop with cash, claiming she wished to purchase an AR-15 to, ‘undergo training.’ She refused basic, free instruction of firearms safety under the pretense that she was using the firearm for training with a NRA certified instructor.” SDT makes every attempt to ensure that all new firearms owners have every resource to ensure safety with their purchase.
