The NRA wants the "right" to sell guns to felons... [View all]

Because that works out just so well, right?

NRA Embraces Deceptive Description Of GOP Rep's Guns-For-Felons Proposal

Gun Group Falsely Claimed Program Is Only Aimed At Non-Violent Felons

The National Rifle Association is falsely characterizing a legislative proposal from Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) that would allow felons to petition the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) for restoration of their gun ownership rights, saying the option would only be available to "non-violent felons."

In fact, any felon could apply to have their right to own a firearm restored under Buck's proposal, which is why the ATF program that used to provide that option was defunded in the early 1990s -- research showed that even violent felons had won their appeals, and in some cases went on to commit new violent crimes.
