The report makes interesting distinction between the "surface web" (normal websites) where all their attempts to obtain firearms were unsuccessful, and the "dark web" (presumably tor-anonymized websites already known for illegal content like drugs). All their attempts to obtain a firearm illegally through normal websites failed. In other words, normal fireamrs owners follow the law and sell legally, even when using the various internet sites available for buying and selling firearms online.
And criminals, who know they are criminals, set up their storefronts elsewhere and do not follow the law.
