  1. And around 95% of those denials are found to be false positives, mistaken identities, etc., most of whom go on later to purchase with no problems. Just a delay.

    But as MLK-Jr said, “A right delayed is a right denied.”

    The Bradys say 3 million denials are a good start, and proof their namesake law works.

    What I see are 2.85 MILLION violations of a Constitutionally-guaranteed right.

    I’ll repeat that, because it bears repeating:

    2.85 MILLION violations of a Constitutional right is a good thing and proof the law is working, according to the Brady Campaign.

    So no, you will not see 3 million cases referred for federal prosecution, because only about 150,000 were actual “prohibited persons” attempting to purchase a firearm from a licensed dealer.

    The $65,000 question is, “Why aren’t there even 150,000 cases referred for prosecution?”

    According to the WaPo Fact Checker, as of 2013, 62 cases were referred for prosecution.

    Not 62,000. 62. Sixty-two.

    So to sum up: we have a law that has produced 2.85 million Constitutional violations based on a potential crime, but resulting in fewer than 100 prosecutions in two-and-a-half decades.

    And the Bradys are celebrating their “success”.

    My question is, “Where are the 2.85 million prosecutions for violations of 18 U.S.C. 241 and 242?”

    1. If 2.85 million votes were impounded and not counted until their validity was confirmed, the left would be screaming their freaking heads off about voter suppression — and they’d have reason to.

    2. Oh, and the gun control paradise of Chicago no longer prosecutes felon-in-possession. The left refuses to enforce the laws we have now, but wants more, because they’ll be just as selective in their enforcement and will use it to punish their enemies.
