Biden to NRA: We 'donít have the time' to prosecute people who lie on background checks
Daily Caller ^ | 1/18/13 | Caroline May

Posted on 01/17/2013 10:05:22 PM PST by Nachum

During the National Rifle Association’s meeting with Vice President Joe Biden and the White House gun violence task force, the vice president said that the administration did not have the time to prosecute existing gun laws.

Jim Baker, the NRA representative present at the meeting, recalled the vice president’s words to The Daily Caller: “And to your point, Mr. Baker, regarding the lack of prosecutions on lying on Form 4473s, we simply don’t have the time or manpower to prosecute everybody who lies on a form, that checks a wrong box, that answers a question inaccurately.”

Submitting false information on an ATF Form 4473 — required for the necessary background check to obtain a firearm — is a felony punishable by up to ten years in prison, depending on prior convictions and the judge, according to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

“There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.” ~Ayn Rand

Nope. They just proved their position. They want to ban guns for everyone and don't care to bother with the finer points of enforcing the laws already on the books. If they did a better job enforcing laws, there would be less opportunities to blame guns for crimes.

Where did I hear, in Singapore if one is caught with illegal gun, one gets a life sentence, and if the gun is used in a crime, it is then a death sentence. That sounds harsh but could explain their very low crime rate.

This poor clown just blew their more laws argument out of the water, admitted their incompetence and has no idea what he did.
There's stupid and there is super stupid, crazy Joe is super.

so we pass all these ‘needed’ laws yet don’t proscute people who break them.

then why have the laws, joe? they’re meaningless if you don’t prosecute the criminals breaking them.

If the FED doesn’t have time to prosecute those who ‘lie’ on the background check form, then why even have the form or require it to be filled out?

This is just another Lib/Lefist ‘feelgoodism’ that looks good on paper.

The only ones who will honestly fill out the forms are the ones the Admin/Dems and MSM are currently vilifying.

Criminals won’t bother with accuracy, if they even bother to fill out the form.

It is sort of like the adage: locks only keep honest people out.

Like background checks for security clearances? Like TSA employees’ background checks? Like someone checking to see if a guy running for president was a foreign citizen for the purposes of attending a US university?

This could not be anymore of a low hanging fruit.

If the GOP and the NRA...along with every single group on the supposed side of gun/2A rights does not flood the net and any other media with that very issue, then it will be abundantly clear to even the most willfully blind that they are not serious about it.

We just had a VP amid a battle for more gun laws say they do not try enforcing the current ones.

Hello America?

If they do not wrap this around the admin and gun grabber necks, and we continue to excuse them for their lack of action, regardless of what BS excuse they may come up with, we deserve whatever happens to us. Period.
