For instance, in some parts of the country the ATF is routinely copying all dealer 4473’s and bound book entries in connection with its routine annual inspection — thus creating a de facto national gun registry of law-abiding gun owners. And make no mistake about it: If regionally held records can be accessed in Washington by the push of a keystroke, it’s a national gun registry — prohibited by federal law.
Does Lynch believe this process is unlawful? If not, her disregard for the law makes her unqualified to serve as attorney general.
The Obama administration has tried to outlaw the importation of shotguns and ammunition. And it is being urged to ban the import of semi-autos, thus circumventing Congress’ decision to reject that ban. In the case of shotguns, the administration has argued that they have no “sporting purpose.” Huh??!!
Irrespective of whose signature was on that ban, we know the real “mover” was Eric Holder and the ATF.
And then there’s Operation Fast and Furious. Does Lynch have a problem with that?
Does she favor semi-auto and magazine bans?
What about ATF’s illegal efforts to register multiple sales of firearms? Or the administration’s efforts to financially strangle gun dealers and manufacturers by labeling them as “risky businesses” under Operation Choke Point?
FK – Time to repeal GCA ’68 which is de facto gun registration.
