The New York Daily News – “New York’s Picture Newspaper – is keeping up their propaganda campaign against the NRA and Republicans for refusing to add those on the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Database to the NICS denied list.
They are now reporting that NYPD Police Commissioner William Bratton and Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) are supporting efforts to add those on the “No-Fly” list to the NICS denied list. What they are forgetting is that the FBI still runs a check on everyone who buys a gun through a FFL.
As Bratton made clear yesterday on NBC’s Meet The Press, he is more worried about people put on a list for some unknown and ephemeral reason buying a gun than he is about ISIS using Syrian refugees to smuggle in jihadis into the United States. Clearly one does not get to be the commissioner of police without bowing to one’s political masters.
