New background check regulations

The changes to NICS access isn’t that frightening. However, why maintain a database of those who have been denied? I mean, it’s not like ATF pursues those people in the first place.

    It IS against the law.

    Haynes v. United States, 390 U.S. 85 (1968)

    Felons are exempted from prosecution for failing to register their firearms. If they did it would be a violation of their 5th Amendment rights.

    I’m not a lawyer but even though the form says it is a felony to lie on the form it might only apply to law abiding purchasers who are not already felons. I don’t think the DOJ or gun control crowd would want the 4473 form to be challenged if they were to start to prosecute the thousands of denials.

    Selective enforcement of the law is a hallmark of the current administration. They are creating a database of persons who can be harassed with a criminal charge a time of the government’s choice.

    Obama and Holder and future progressive tyrants could “tilt” the NICS system to automatically deny everyone on the first pass. Then they’d have the ID info on everyone who has an interest in firearms ownership. That becomes a virtual national gun registration database over time.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
