Jeff Sessions directs FBI, ATF to review gaps in federal background check system for guns


by Kelly Cohen | Nov 22, 2017, 6:10 PM 
 
Attorney General Jeff Sessions has directed the FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to look at the gaps in the federal background check system for guns and report back in 60 days.
...
Sessions directed the FBI and ATF to:
 
>  Work with the Department of Defense to identify and resolve any issues with the militarys reporting of convictions and other relevant information to determine if someone can buy a firearm

>  Review if any other federal agencies are not fully and accurately reporting information to NICS

>  Review the official form (known as ATF Form 4473) used by the ATF that someone purchasing a firearm from a federally licensed firearm holder (such as a gun shop) fills out, and recommend any necessary changes

>  Identify any additional measures that should be taken to prevent a prohibited person from getting a firearm

>  Prepare a report that addresses:

> The number of current open investigations for making a false statement on ATF Form 4473

> The number of investigations for making a false statement on ATF Form 4473 from the past five years

> The number of current year recommendations for prosecution and the number of current year recommendations for declination for making a false statement on ATF Form 4473

> The number of recommendations for prosecution and the number of recommendations for declination for making a false statement on ATF Form 4473 from the past five years

> What level of priority gets assigned to an investigation for false statements made on ATF Form 4473

...
In 2016, 120,000 people were denied by the NICS, government statistics show. The main reason for these denials, impacting 50,000 people, was due to a crime conviction. Another 8,900 were denied because of a domestic violence conviction in 2016.

On 5/25/2017, Superintendent Eddie Johnson predicted a 50% reduction is Chicago violence within 3 years of SB1722 becoming law.  The bill was signed into law on 6/23/2017. The clock is now ticking.

Inching ever closer to banning private sales I suspect.... Its only a matter of time before that gem comes back up again.

Buy 'em now while you can boys and girls, asking regulatory bureaucrats to look for fixes means changes we won't like are coming down the pipe.

Ask bureaucrats to review a bureaucracy. Brilliant. I can't wait to see what the IG concludes. Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk

Polymer lowers seem like a non-sequitur to me.

 

What's the connection ?

There is only one rifle I might consider buying in the foreseeable future and that is a Keltec CMR-30 .22 Magnum rifle.  I have bolt-actions in both .22 LR & Mag, plus a 10/22 as well as the PMR-30 pistol and the Ruger Single Six revolver.  Three rifles, two handguns, two ammos.

Did anyone notice the about face the ATF did on AR pistol braces after DT was inaugurated? Coincidence?

build your own.....no background check needed, no paperwork, no FFL, and no serial number even required by law. Completely bypass the whole system.
