Gun-rental loophole for felons, others

Felons may be prohibited from buying, owning or carrying guns, but a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel investigation by reporter John Diedrich revealed a loophole in the law allows them to rent guns at gun stores and use them for target practice on indoor ranges. Indeed, gun stores are prohibited from running background checks on those wanting to rent guns – even if the store wants to take that step. The story is part of a series, Wiped Clean, that looks at how Congress protects gun dealers at the public’s expense.
