One of the prime demands of Democrats and the mainstream media is to tighten up the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) so as to prevent the wrong people from purchasing guns. Remember the outcry when it was learned that the Parkland shooter legally purchased his weapon even though there were warning signs?
Democrats have wanted total universal background checks even when a grandpa gives his grandson one of his guns to go hunting with. They want background checks are gun shows and online purchases.
So, ask yourself why the Obama administration had about 500,000 fugitive names deleted from the NICS system? Aren’t those the people that Democrats want to prevent buying guns?
(Constitution.com) – When Democrats blame Republicans and the NRA for criminal gun deaths, it’s important to remember that it’s the Democrats who continually weaken our law enforcement tools.
In the recent shooting in Parkland, Florida it was Democrat education/policing policies that allowed Nikolas Cruz to do his evil work. The police were forced to call on Cruz on dozens of times, and yet they never reported him to the national databases for his criminal behavior. The FBI was warned about him on more than one occasion, but because local police were not reporting his bad behavior, they had no way of knowing just how dangerous Cruz was. In reality, if not for the liberal policies pursued by the Broward County School system and their local police – Cruz would have been in the national NICS (banned from purchasing a gun) database.
This past week we learned, again, that liberal policies have made our nation decidedly more dangerous.
This past week during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich unveiled some very disturbing information about a HUGE hole in the database created by the Obama/Lynch Justice Department…
When this was revealed, Sen. Dianne Feinstein wanted answers, as if it was the action of the Trump administration but when it was explained to her as being something done under the Obama administration, Feinstein wasn’t nearly as vocal as she was. It was great when the finger of blame was pointed back at Democrats.
