The lies the NRA and its Senate lapdogs tell
Per a recent post we know the gun background check failed in the Senate. But the lies told to support it are easily disproven. As but one example, here's Republican Joe Scarborough debunking them. The proposed legislation before the Senate not only does not create a national registry but says that to do so is a crime punishable by up to15 years imprisonment. The NRA stated it would have prevented individual gun sales between private citizens but the bill was strictly limited to gun shows and online sales. They also claim that expanded background checks would not prevent any shootings, which has been demonstrably, convincingly and totally obliterated. Check out Scarborough's scathing diatribe.
