No, you friggin’ liar – you can’t. That is an outright, bold-faced lie… But what’s new?
Lars Dalseide of the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action told Townhall, “any sale from any licensed dealer first has to go through a background check.
It doesn’t matter if he’s selling the firearm at a store, online, or at a gun show. When it comes to online sales, guns can only be transferred to the buyer through a federally licensed firearms dealer – that’s the law.”
As for criminals who might want to buy a gun online, it’s highly unlikely. First, criminals don’t go to Gander Mountain to buy firearms since they require background checks on all firearms purchases. Also, criminals won’t be visiting gun shows for their guns either.
They break the law when it comes to obtaining guns.
These executive orders will do nothing to stop future gun violence, and the NRA, which finds itself under siege (again), knows this all to well. In a statement released today, the executive director for the organization’s Institute for Legislative Action said,“Once again, President Obama has chosen to engage in political rhetoric instead of offering meaningful solutions to our nation’s pressing problems.
Statement from the NRA on Obama’s gun-grabbing executive orders:
“The American people do not need more emotional, condescending lectures that are completely devoid of facts. The men and women of the National Rifle Association take a back seat to no one when it comes to keeping our communities safe.
But the fact is that President Obama’s proposals would not have prevented any of the horrific events he mentioned. The timing of this announcement, in the eighth and final year of his presidency, demonstrates not only political exploitation but also a fundamental lack of seriousness.
“The proposed executive actions are ripe for abuse by the Obama Administration, which has made no secret of its contempt for the Second Amendment. The NRA will continue to fight to protect the fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed under our Constitution. We will not allow law-abiding gun owners to become scapegoats for President Obama’s failed policies.”
Do you think this is merely an ongoing attempt to distract attention away from his lack of a coherent strategy to keep the American people safe from terrorist attacks?
