Same Gun-Ban Song, Different Verse

posted on August 17, 2015

We reported last week how 13 anti-gun U.S. senators are calling on some firearm retailers to not sell guns to their customers after the NICS-required three days have passed. As NRA-ILA points out, this newest ploy is part of a decades-old playbook to limit private firearm ownership.

The effort tracks with the three-part plan outlined by the Brady Campaign in 1976, when it was known as the National Council to Control Handguns, to first “slow down the increasing number of handguns being produced and sold in this country,” and thereafter get handguns registered, then banned. Except now it’s about all firearms.

At issue is the federal law that requires firearm dealers to delay, for three business days, transfers of firearms to customers whose background checks are not quickly approved. But simply stated, if the delay was not necessarily limited to three days, unelected bureaucrats could indefinitely prevent people from acquiring firearms.
