Exclusive: Interview with Staunch Gun-Control Advocate Ladd Everitt from One Pulse for America

Wed, 09/26/2018 - 08:18

I don’t really care about the dramatic conspiracy theories that accompany licensing and registration in pro-gun circles. Mentally and emotionally healthy people understand that virtually every other democracy on the planet has national and licensing registration for firearms, their gun death/injury rates are astronomically lower, and no one has been enslaved.

GAO Report: Feds Prosecute 0.01% of ‘Lie and Try’ Attempted Gun Purchases

Mon, 09/24/2018 - 11:35

All gun owners recognize the strongly worded warning on ATF Form 4473: providing false or misleading information when purchasing a firearm “is a crime punishable as a felony under Federal law, and may also violate State and/or local law.” Even if the FBI denies the purchase, anyone caught lying about a past felony conviction or a mental health issue could face thousands of dollars in fines and years in jail. But a new report from the Government Accountability Office suggests that these “lie and try” buyers almost never come under federal prosecution.
