You would think that after being called out by multiple groups,orgs and citizens,these idiots would stop with the lies…

Dan Gross,the Brady bunch prez,repeats the same old bullshit as he’s been repeating for years.

Maybe it’s an attempt to brainwash the libtards who read WaPo’s slanted heavily left drivel daily?

Lie #1-

“The Brady Law has blocked about 2.1 million gun sales to prohibited purchasers, including more than 1 million to convicted felons, 291,000 to domestic abusers and 118,000 to fugitives, according to the Brady Campaign’s calcalutions. That amounts to hundreds of purchases blocked every day over 16 years.”

 

Mr. Gross knowns damn well that the majority of NICS denails/delays are simply not due to convicted felons,thugs,dope dealers,and other assorted riff-raff attempting to purchase a firearm legally.

The delay/denial is most often due to the purchaser having the same last name or a similar name as a criminal,even the same first and last name,or that the purchaser’s SSN is 1 number off from that of a criminal.

Then there’s the .gov employees who enter the data in the first place,and the .gov employees who enter the purchasers name and SSN-they make a plethora of errors-daily.

As far as I can tell,there’s never been a year in which more than 100 cases were prosecuted as a result of a NICS denial-maybe that’s due to the fact that most denials are in fact false positive hits? That the person is really not a prohibited person,and the sale is allowed to proceed a few days later?

Mr. Gross does not present all the data-or any of the facts-he’s trying to push an agenda,not pen a factual op-ed piece.

 

Lie #2

“Federal law requires only federally licensed gun stores to conduct background checks on purchasers, leaving a loophole the size of Texas”

 

An outright lie,as the same FFL who has a brick and mortar gun shop,when selling guns at a gun show-must,by law-that’s current law by the way-conduct the exact same NICS background check before any sale is allowed to proceed.

 

Lie number 3 (really an addition/continuation of lie #2)-

“Federal law requires only federally licensed gun stores to conduct background checks on purchasers, leaving a loophole the size of Texas that allows virtually anyone in most states to buy a gun, no questions asked, by going online or to a gun show.”

 

Under current federal gun laws,any gun purchased online must be shipped to a FFL.

Mr Gross’ assertion that anyone can just order a gun online through e-bay,etc,and have it shipped directly to their home,with no NICS check is a bald faced lie…

He uses said lie to promote an agenda-and all the anti-gun sheeple bleat in unison -guns are baaaad,guns are baaaad.

Lie #4-or the final piece of propaganda in his op-ed piece-

 

“It’s simple; we need both to both get more records into NICS and expand background checks to all gun sales to ensure that prohibited people, including those who are a danger to themselves or others, don’t have easy access to guns.”

 

No,Mr Gross-we do not need either one of those things,as neither one would do a damn thing to prevent criminals or the mentally ill from gaining access to a firearm.

The only thing your proposals would do is create a federal database of gun owners,so that if,and it’s a huge if-you and the rest of your anti-gun,anti-civil rights cabal succeeds in getting private ownership of guns banned-.gov agencies will already have the names and addresses of many gun owners.

There is very,very little support for more gun control laws-despite the braying and bleating of people like you,and Bloomberg and his minions Moms demand whatever it is they are demanding-their message keeps changing-all we know for sure is that the group’s actual name should be Moms  against civil rights-it’s a much more fitting name.

The Brady bunch should change their name to “we want to ban all civilian ownership of guns in America” as that is their goal,as evidenced by the minutes from a meeting long ago,in which they stated that a ban on “assault weapons” was just the first step.

Then there’s Mr Gross’ long history of holding high positions in anti-gun orgs-

President of The Brady Center for Gun Safety 
Formerly Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence 
Formerly Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence 
Formerly Brady Campaign to End Gun Violence 
Formerly Center to Prevent Handgun Violence 
Formerly Handgun Control, Inc. 
Formerly National Council to Ban Handguns 

 

Seems that how he earns his salary-by braying and bleating about how we must enact more gun control-well Mr. Gross-way back when-you and your ilk claimed all you wanted was background checks-you got the NICS system-why don’t you just sit down and shut up now?
