One of the easiest propaganda tricks: simply say that your detractors’ claims aren’t true. Remember when President Obama was selling Obamacare? He kept repeating that Americans who liked their health care provider would be able to keep it. Costs wouldn’t go up. Doctors for nothing and your checks for free! Somehow it didn’t work out that way. Same dynamic in play here. Biden says the feds don’t want to create a gun registry because . . . they don’t. And won’t. Anyone who thinks registration > confiscation is the game plan has been mislead by the NRA. They’re part of the “black helicopter” crowd . . .
“There is no record” of current gun sales the Veep proclaims, ignoring the fact that the form 4473 is a complete record of gun and buyer that the dealer is legally required to maintain. A record that the feds can examine “as part of a criminal investigation.” A record that the dealer must turn over to the ATF when he ceases operation.
Could a “criminal investigation” be an investigation into whether or not the buyer of an “assault rifle” registered his firearms with the state (or someday federal government) as required in California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, Maryland and soon RI and God knows who else?
Could the ATF close down a gun dealer on some minor issue and then assume possession of their “log book” detailing all firearms transactions?
Sure! Meanwhile, what’s this about a buyer getting a NICS checks and then deciding not to purchase the gun because the Mrs. controls the purse-strings? I guess Joe lives in some kind of She Who Must Be Obeyed Universe. And doesn’t know that the NICS check happens after the buying decision.
Never mind. When the gun grabbers speak, idiots listen.
