The Mormon Church owns a controversial gun selling website that allows people to buy guns online without passing a background check according to a report by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the website Buzzfeed.
The website, KSL.com came under scrutiny after Buzzfeed revealed that it was owned by Deseret Media Companies, the for-profit arm of the Mormon Church
The New York Daily News reports:
The mayor’s report said the site — where 1,327 handguns and 1,003 rifles were listed for sale Monday — allows buyers and sellers to complete a gun sale without identifying themselves.
Undercover agents performed “integrity checks” on the site, trying to buy guns while declaring openly that they could not pass a legit background check.
In eight of 12 attempts, the seller happily sold the gun to the shady buyer .
