The Same Old Story

I took the liberty of rendering the dialogue fairly generic. After all, I wouldn’t want our anti-Bill of Rights readers to miss the point.
Criminals and the Washington Gun-Grab.
EXT. SECLUDED ALLEYWAY IN A LARGE CITY.
A young man (GANGBANGER) wearing ill-fitting clothing sidles up to an equally shoddily dressed individual (BLACK-MARKETEER). The second man leans against an open-trunked 1988 Buick LeSabre with after-market rims the size of manhole covers.
Pardon me; but are you the fellow who operates a black-market gun shop out of his car?
Indeed, I am. Given your attire and demeanor, I presume you wish to purchase a gun but are precluded from doing so either because you are legally prohibited from possessing firearms, are conducting an illegal straw purchase or simply do not wish to have your possession of a firearm noted by law enforcement. Of course, as a black-marketeer, I eschew any sort of legal restrictions in favor of facilitating criminal weapons purchases.
As a criminal who routinely and deliberately breaks any laws I wish, I appreciate your services. Might you have any fully automatic weapons?
I can accommodate your request. And you are clearly aware such a purchase constitutes a further violation of the law, since possession of fully automatic firearms without proper Federal approval has been illegal for many years. However, since we are both criminals, violating pre-existing weapons laws is entirely inconsequential to us.
In fact, President Barack Obama and his accomplices’ attempts to further restrict the Bill of Rights benefit us both. By passing so-called “gun control” laws, they have not only rendered my potential victims even more vulnerable, they have also increased your sales. The war on the Bill of Rights very closely mirrors the disastrous Prohibition efforts of the early 20th century.
It has been a pleasure doing illegal business with you, fellow criminal. I look forward to further interactions with you and the rest of the violent criminal element as we all continue to flout the laws that burden our law-abiding brethren in the name of state control over the people.
Look what their ideological idols did to Russia: a murderous, behemoth government working hand in glove with a homicidal, monstrous criminal underworld. And the law-abiding citizens –helpless against those twin terrors –died by the tens of millions to benefit them both.
“When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.” It might be clichéd, but it is indubitably a fact. By the way, I need you to sign this Federal form for your background check before I sell you any firearms; it’s the law.
I beg your pardon?
