And the response of many Freedom loving Americans would have been???
I can’t recall anything like this in recent memory.
Some pro-gun supporters are clamoring for legislation that has the “who’s who” of the anti-gun Democrat movement cosponsoring it.
I’m talking about S. 2135, the anti-gun Fix NICS bill, where Democrat Senators Dianne Feinstein, Chuck Schumer and Chris Murphy have teamed up with Republican John Cornyn of Texas.
The sponsors of the Cornyn-Schumer-Feinstein bill (S. 2135) are appealing to pro-gun supporters by fraudulently holding out section 2(2) of their gun control bill as some big achievement. They claim it will require records corrections within 60 days for people erroneously denied under the Brady Law.
But guess what? The Brady Law itself, at Statutes at Large subsections (f) and (g), already requires the FBI to give a reason for a denial in five business days, and provides that “the Attorney General shall … IMMEDIATELY correct all federal records relating to the prospective transferee…” (Emphasis added.)
So section 2(2) actually takes current law and makes it more unfavorable to gun owners. And without sanctions for non-compliance at the FBI, neither current law nor the proposed law is worth the paper it is written on.
Feds are Already Flouting the Law
Current law, since 1994, requires the Attorney General (AG) to IMMEDIATELY correct erroneous federal records concerning a transferee. Suffice it to say that, of the 95% percent of denials that are “false positives,” large percentages of the people currently denied never get their rights vindicated.
The process starts under Statutes at Large subsection (f), which requires the AG to provide a “reason” for the denial within 5 business days. This almost never happens, and the FBI’s response is most often some variant of “Make me!” With no sanctions, this provision, and section 2(2) of S. 2135, are meaningless.
In fact, the previous paragraph understates the problem. The Obama administration publicly and deliberately negated the appeals process. Obama’s minions illegally diverted every single one of its FBI appeal examiners to other duties, making it impossible for the agency to overturn people’s denials and creating a huge backlog.
So here’s the problem when we’re faced with the next anti-gun president. The “immediate” (or 60-day) deadline will never be triggered because the information necessary to trigger it will never be disgorged from the FBI.
Suffice it to say that, if you can’t get the FBI to tell you why your transaction was denied, you can’t bring this unascertainable information to the attention of the Attorney General for the purpose of invoking subsection (g) under current law — or section 2(2) of S. 2135.
If you want a laugh, check out the latest Firing Back podcast, where GOA’s Erich Pratt and his cohost discuss how hypocritical anti-gunners can be!
Cornyn-Schumer actually makes problems worse for gun owners
There are other ways that the FBI avoids accountability.
One method is to give a purchaser a permanent “yellow.” Most large gun retailers will refuse to sell a gun to a person with a “yellow” indicator, even though they can legally do so after three days under the Brady Law. But, the question remains: How can you appeal a “We Don’t Know” determination?
Then, as we have noted, there is currently a statutory 5-day intermediate deadline, and an “immediate” correction requirement, which are almost never complied with.
The Cornyn-Schumer-Feinstein bill appears to effectively replace a 5-day unenforceable deadline and the “immediate” correction requirement with a much longer 60-day unenforceable deadline.
And the worst part? While there are no sanctions against the Attorney General for failing to enforce the fake deadline for correcting information, there ARE REAL SANCTIONS IN THE BILL against any federal agency or state that fails to turn in more gun owners’ names to NICS.
That’s a raw deal for gun owners.

“The Department of Justice‘s Operation Fast and Furious: Fueling Cartel Violence”.
I have concluded that we have nothing to worry about from Diane Feinstein, Harry Reid, Eric Holder or the President.
They sold thousands of guns and still can’t find most of them. They’re pathetic for a variety of reasons.
1. Our government sold guns to drug dealers resulting in the death of an American.
2. Our government tried to cover it up.
3. Our government “lost” such items as AK-47‘s, AR-15‘s, Barett 50’s. LOTS of them.
It was so pathetic that even after the ATF found out about what was happening, 1,418 weapons were sold. AFTER the ATF knew… and 1,048 weapons still remain missing.
If our government sold firearms to drug dealers and murderers, even after it became known what was going, continued to sell and lose them to those people, what do we have to worry about.
Can they find their own shoes?
Furthermore, in the wording of Feinstein’s proposed “Assault Weapons Ban of 2013″, it states on page 14, lines 9-12:
“It shall be unlawful for a person to import, sell, manufacture, transfer or possess, in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce, a semiautomatic assault weapon.”
Shouldn’t somebody in the Federal government go to jail???
