The Background Check Lie

The Ugly Secret About Background Checks:
They Aren't Background Checks

It's a gun registration scheme

If people knew the truth they'd never support it--
So it is promoted with deceit, front to back

What's so bad about gun registration, right?
We register cars.


The entire push for so-called universal background checks is based on deceit and misinformation. It's the only way it can pass -- get enough people to support something that sounds good, whether it is or not.

Daily Caller has decided to republish an article of mine, one of the best I ever wrote, exposing this deception. "News" articles perpetually mislead the public in a (sometimes) ignorant push for so-called "simple, common-sense" gun checks, believing (hoping) it will finally stop (or put a dent in) crime. It will have the opposite effect. How could they be so wrong? How could they miss the evidence, the logic, even the emotions of this crucial story? How can they not get it? They would if they read this.
