From the same media outlet that decided to publicly post the names and addresses of registered, and law abiding gun owners on two NY counties, comes another deliberately false missive, designed to mislead readers to support an ideological agenda.
However, one would hope that gun owners, whether or not they are members of the National Rifle Association, might be able to transfer their outrage over the website to more meaningful actions. There are so many responsible and nonthreatening actions that they could be pursuing, and as gun owners their collective voice would be especially powerful in demanding that those lawmakers who are scared of and subservient to the NRA have the courage to support responsible legislation. One logical piece of legislation that should command the support of every rational citizen would be to prevent the easy purchase of guns by criminals and the mentally ill at gun shows, flea markets, and the Internet. Indeed, anyone can purchase on the Internet today and have delivered tomorrow the weapon that killed the children in Newtown, the moviegoers in Aurora, Colo., the volunteer firefighters in upstate New York, and the thousands of young black and Hispanic men killed each year in cities across the country.
Firearms purchased over the internet must be delivered to authorized and licensed firearms dealers and turned over [with a fee] to the customer only after a satisfactory background check. Absolutely no different than walking into a gun store and conducting a purchase from start to finish.
Utter fabrication for political gain. And it’s disgusting.
