Illegals Get OK to Go Gun Shopping

The lamestream media told you:

Governors around the nation are wrestling with whether to issue drivers licenses to illegal immigrants who are now in the country legally as college students, thanks to Obama's "deferred action" program, where, by a stroke of the president's pen, these children, victims of nothing more than being brought by parents, are now good kids in school, etc...

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Because a driver's license is the main form of ID relied upon by federal firearms dealers, deferred-action students approved by Mr. Obama are now apparently eligible to buy firearms and ammunition at retail, according to leading experts. Under normal conditions, illegal aliens cannot legally buy guns in America.

It's not clear if the national NICS system has this special federal class of people singled out for special treatment in the NICS Index, the list of prohibited possessors. Someone should ask, but skeptics don't expect authorities to do their jobs and do so.

William Baker

If anyone can pick a new name and pretend to be an illegal, doesn't this totally void all background checks? Pay no attention to my name, it is now Jose Amilcar.
