A viral tweet this week alleging a 20-year-old with an expired ID was able to buy an AR-15 rifle in five minutes is a lie.
The viral tweet, which has been shared by more than 9,000 social media users, quotes a two-year-old blog post written by then-20-year-old blogger Cody Davis.
The quote reads: “I was able to buy an AR-15 in five minutes. I’m 20 and my ID is expired.”
