NBC News is reporting that the NRA won’t work to block Chuck Schumer’s universal background check bill so long as record keeping isn’t part of the deal. One problem — it’s just not true. Misreporting by NBC on a gun control issue? Say it ain’t so! To bring a little clarity to the matter, the NRA just released the following statement . . .
This statement is completely untrue. The NRA opposes criminalizing private firearms transfers between law-abiding individuals, and therefore opposes an expansion of the background check system.
The NRA supports meaningful efforts to address the problems of violent crime and mass violence in America, through swift and certain prosecution of violent criminals; securing our schools; and fixing our broken mental health system.
And that’s the truth about that.
