Director Confirms Gun Trafficking Felonies In “Under The Gun”

It takes a special kind of idiocy to confess to conspiring in multiple felonies on video, but that’s precisely what Under the Gun director Stephanie Soechtig did in a February interview promoting the anti-gun film.

Incredibly, Soechtig confirmed again today in written responses to questions by Sean Davis of The Federalist that her producer did indeed commit federal firearms felonies, even as she attempted to claim otherwise.

 

In response to a series of detailed questions about the incident posed by The Federalist, Soechtig simultaneously confirmed that she and her team skirted federal gun laws and declared that they did absolutely nothing wrong:

“While it may seem hard to believe that one could buy these types of guns this easily, all purchases in the film were made completely legally. Arizona law allows out-of-state residents to buy long guns (i.e. rifles, shotguns, military style assault rifles) from a private seller without a background check. It also allows Arizona residents to buy handguns from a private seller without a background check.

 

“We demonstrated both versions of this dangerous loophole in the film on a hidden camera, in full compliance with both state and federal laws. The rifles – including a Smith and Wesson M&P 15, the gun used in the Aurora massacre – were purchased by an out of state resident. The handgun was purchased by an Arizona resident.

 

“These guns were then turned over to law enforcement and destroyed. They never left the state of Arizona.”
