26 Groups Cozy Up To Failed Gun Restrictions

posted on May 7, 2015

Twenty-six organizations, including the American Psychiatric Association and the American Bar Association, are endorsing policies to further restrict private firearms ownership from an American College of Physicians proposal, “Firearm-Related Injury and Death in the United States.” 

This list of suggestions begins with the claim, “the only way to ensure that all prohibited purchasers are prevented from acquiring firearms” is to require universal background checks for all purchases. It fails to explain how they expect to force criminals to submit to a NICS check for street purchases or guns they’ve stolen. The authors also call for reinstatement of the 1994 “assault weapons” ban, even though they admit the ban wasn’t effective.

Also listed among those endorsing the proposal were the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and the Violence Policy Center, begging the question: Why are professional medical and law organizations aligning themselves with gun-ban groups determined to restrict the rights of law-abiding Americans?
