Neil Steinberg is a Chicago Sun-Times reporter, columnist, and editorial board member. The liberal reporter really doesn’t like gun owners and he’s a crude man. He once wrote, “Guns are a kind of masturbatory aid of millions of Americans who imagine themselves supermen.”‘
The cocky woke, angry liberal walked into Maxon’s shooters in Des Plaines, Illinois to purchase a Smith & Wesson M&P Sport semi-automatic rifle and a 30-round magazine.
However, when it was time to check out the store refused to sell the weapon to Steinberg.
The reporter became irate yelling, “you sell to terrorists, you sell to insane people, but you won’t sell to a reporter?”
Camly, the clerk informed him that his background check revealed a “history of alcohol abuse and domestic violence.”
Steinberg, 45, of Northbrook, Illinois was arrested in his home after his wife, Edie, called 911 and reported abuse, said Sgt. Michael Keady of the Northbrook Police Department. Steinberg spent the night in jail and posted bail.
Edie Steinberg had first tried to call emergency services on another telephone, but Neil Steinberg hit that phone out of her hand, causing minor injuries, Keady said.
She was able to call 911 on another phone, he said.
Steinberg was charged with one count of domestic battery and one count of interfering with the reporting of domestic battery. Both are misdemeanors and carry sentences of up to a year in jail, Keady said.
Steinberg’s charges were eventually dismissed after he completed treatment which was how he obtained a Firearms card in Illinois.
The woke reporter didn’t take responsibility for his actions or praise the gun store for doing the right thing. Instead, he blamed the gun store for having an agenda.
“Well, didn’t see that coming. Were that same standard applied to the American public, there would be a whole lot fewer guns sold,” he wrote.
