Statement from Chris W. Cox, NRA-ILA Executive Director, regarding inaccurate NBC story alleging that NRA wont oppose background check bill
An article appearing today on NBCNews.com is falsely reporting that NRA will not oppose legislation being negotiated in the U.S. Senate that would mandate background checks for all gun purchasers.
The story posted on NBCNews.com alleges that NRA will not oppose expanding the background check system to include all private firearm sales, "provided the legislation does not require private gun sellers to maintain records of the checks". This statement is completely untrue. The NRA opposes criminalizing private firearms transfers between law-abiding individuals, and therefore opposes an expansion of the background check system.
The NRA supports meaningful efforts to address the problems of violent crime and mass violence in America, through swift and certain prosecution of violent criminals; securing our schools; and fixing our broken mental health system.
Not sure why a lie or misleading info from any liberal media outlet is surprising.
Surprising or not we must make a big deal about this because the low info voters must be made aware.
Their game is all about pitting one gun owner against another.
The NRA has and will stand firm.
NBC would do and say anything to improve it’s ratings. Right now, they’re right behind the test pattern channel in the ratings.
Thanks for the ping.
Thanks for the ping!
Good morning, Matt!
Top of the morning, Joe!
Whoa... you mean the Democrat Party
leftmedia just makes whatever shit up that it wants the sheeple to believe and then reports it as fact? No way!
