The two persons involved in the Dark Web sales need to be prosecuted to the full extent of the laws they broke.
I did think it was funny that 7 times the GAO got involved in scams and 2 were successful.

This exercise was ordered by Senators Cummings, Schatz and Warren to see if sellers would willingly break the law to sell firearms to somebody who shouldn't have one?
So when trying to buy weapons from legitimate sellers, on the surface web, the GAO agents failed in all 72 attempts. Good people followed the laws. And when they went to the dark web, they were able to obtain a weapon 2 out of 7 times. Not surprising.
Most people want to obey the laws, regular people don't want to risk getting themselves in trouble let alone helping a would-be criminal obtain something they shouldn't have. I don't know much about the dark web but I would imagine you could get almost anything there no questions asked.
