Biden: We ‘don’t have the time’ to prosecute gun buyers who lie on background checks

No, really:

Jim Baker, the NRA representative present at the meeting, recalled the vice president’s words during an interview with The Daily Caller: “And to your point, Mr. Baker, regarding the lack of prosecutions on lying on Form 4473s, we simply don’t have the time or manpower to prosecute everybody who lies on a form, that checks a wrong box, that answers a question inaccurately.”

But for some reason, they’ll have time to enforce all these new gun control proposals, right? This shows just how unserious they are other than a political show.

    Well, they COULD Employ all those recent College Grads who have Law Degrees and can’t find a Job, even though they worked on his Campaign. Might even give them a Student Loan Refund for so many years of Service.

    Of course, they’d have to meet their Monthly Quota, especially if the NICS System gets all that new Data from all the Federal Agencies that should have been sending it in the first place…

    But of course.

    It’s not about guns. It’s not about crime.

    It’s about control.

  3. NotClauswitz Says:

    Or even prosecute David Gregory who categorically broke the law on national TV – were there too many wittnesses?

  4. Motor-T Says:

    Ain’t nobody got time for that!

    Markie Marxist sez: “We can’t prosecute people who lie on the forms! They’re likely to be our Marxist/warrior/hero/criminals! We need to keep them on the street, so that they can rip off and bring down capitalist America! It’s those law-abiding gun owners we need to go after and disarm, like we did in New York. Once we use the registration lists to confiscate their guns, they won’t be able to resist any new laws we pass, and we can pass any laws we want. For example, we could make homophobia a felony, punishable by time in a re-education camp, with mandatory homosexual encounters. Don’t like that idea? What are you going to do, resist with the guns we took away from you? Ha! Ha! We Marxists own New York and soon we will own all of America! All your gun are belong to us! Ha! Ha!”

    Then of what use is the form 4473?

    Do the Brady check, put the confirmation number in the bound book ( and nothing else ), and shred any otheer documents after six months.

    The Brady check number will confirm that the dealer followed the rules.

  7. Ellen Says:

    Of course they have the time to prosecute. But only those people they want to prosecute.

  8. chiefjaybob Says:

    Ha. You plebs act as if the Rule of Law still exists in this country. Fools.

    As a process engineer, I am trained to pick “low hanging fruit” to improve the systems I control.

    If I were Biden, I’d have an FBI task force reviewing failures on background checks and I’d be looking for:
    1. Warrants outstanding
    2. Felons applying
    3. Denials for real causes

    And I’d be prosecuting the hell out of these actual instances of felonious behavior, because putting a really stupid bad guy behind bars for several years is a big dent in crime.

  10. Kevin Baker Says:

    But mikee, that would remove a Democrat voter from the rolls!

  11. The Freeholder Says:

    Interesting. They apparently have time to rake FFLs over the coals when a “t” isn’t crossed or the word “avenue” isn’t spelled out, but we can’t prosecute people who are actually committing a crime.

    That could come in as handy knowledge, right there.

  12. rickn8or Says:

    mikee, the courts have ruled that the only people that have to tell the truth on a 4473 are the ones that don’t need checking.

    A felon though, can’t be compelled to testify against himself.
