Colorado –-(Ammoland.com)- It has been brought to our attention that FOX31 reporters Julie Hayden and Josh Bernstein have been attempting to set up straw purchases via online firearm markets.

Keep an eye out for these FOX31 reporters trying to SCAM you in their “investigative reporting”:

Many of our members have made us aware of these activities through a website called armslist.com.

If you are selling a firearm through this website, or any other website for that matter, please make sure that you exercise caution and your best judgment when completing a transaction in person.

Remember, while journalists have used these kinds of tactics in the past to paint gun owners in a negative light, they are most likely not violating any laws by doing so.

Again, make sure you are vigilant when you are conducting your firearms transactions online.

For Freedom,
Dudley Brown
Executive Director

They are all boycotting that news station…but I promise you when that story is shown , they will all be watching. Too many folks out these parts thrive on drama and rumors.. Get the facts. If in fact they are trying to do a straw purchase then the ones who sell them the firearm will be the one breaking… Read more »

“Remember, while journalists have used these kinds of tactics in the past to paint gun owners in a negative light, they are most likely not violating any laws by doing so.”

How so? If they make the purchase and hand the firearm to someone else not legally qualified to possess a firearm, haven’t they broken the law?

I used to watch Fox 31, but no longer! These Libs need to be chastened by the people of Colorado. Frankly, they should be fired on the spot. We have enough of a battle in this state with the Gays and the Demonic DNC to put up with this.
