This is the Obama way: declare a war on lawful business if the politics of that business don’t agree with you. You can follow this pattern of behavior all the way back to his community organizer days. It’s all he knows.
Mr. Stockman and co-owner Curt Sebastian are part of an industry that adds $31.8 billion to the U.S. economy — roughly equivalent to Nigeria’s national budget.
But Mr. Stockman and others in the industry worry that heightened federal scrutiny and government regulations will put them out of business.
Last year, when an inspector from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives dropped by SSG Tactical’s Fredericksburg shop for an unannounced audit, Mr. Stockman thought he was prepared.
Each of the roughly 7,500 guns his business sold that year required a Form 4473, the federal document that the purchaser and seller must complete, in addition to a background check.
The Form 4473 asks questions such as where the purchaser lives and whether the person has ever committed a crime.
Leaving one of the 132 items on the six-page questionnaire blank, or filling it in incorrectly, is an ATF violation. One violation can lead to a license revocation, which would put Mr. Stockman out of business.
Out of SSG Tactical’s 7,500 guns sold, the company could have made as many as 990,000 mistakes from the Form 4473 alone.
Turns out, Mr. Stockman’s team made about 180 errors — a 99.98 percent accuracy rate.
The majority of the violations were on the 4473 and included incorrect information on ethnicity, wrong dates and leaving a box empty when the city and county go by the same name, Mr. Stockman said.
“These mistakes were anything but willful — they were simply human error,” he said. “Now, if anything more turns up, in any future audit, we could lose our license — our business.”
The NRA is planning on spending tens of millions this fall to help the GOP capture the senate and help embattled GOP governors retain their seats, you know, just like you’d expect from a “non-partisan sportsman’s association”
As compared to hundreds of millions by people like Bloomberg. Go fuck with your own pet billionaires before fucking with others.
Haha, OP is just mad there are people trying to counter the shovel-tons of money donated to Democrats. Awwww, is the opposition party getting to you, bud?
Today is the anniversary of the Navy Yard Shooting in which 12 people were shot and killed. The White House has marked the occasion by releasing a statement from the president calling for more gun control. Statement by the President One year ago, our dedicated military and civilian personne
Liberals need to STFU about how Jim Crow Democrats would be today’s conservative Republican. To say the parties have “switched” is an understanding of history that is both ignorant and wrong.
The south votes Republican now because of issues like national security, abortion, gay marriage, and the second amendment, not race.
The black/minority community has given their vote almost exclusively to Democrats for 50 years, and it has gotten them NOTHING. Their condition in some ways has actually worsened because all liberals ever instill in them is dependency on government and an irrational fear of the GOP, who while inept at least believes their path to a better life is freedom spurred by a personal responsibility, self-determination, and a free market (to name a few things). Astonishingly, liberals say encouraging such things is racist (because it’s not racist to deny them, right?).
The black/minority vote gives Democrats the power they want in return for the illusion that the party is their friend. It’s modern day slavery from the political party that wrote the book on it.
Rumor has it the George W. Bush Sr. administration trained and armed a rebel group in the Middle East identified today as Al Qaeda.
Allegedly Al Qaeda was responsible for 9/11.
Rumor has it the Barack Obama administration trained and armed a rebel group in the Middle East now identified as ISIS. ISIS is a branch off of Al Queda.
It has been confirmed that ISIS has killed two American Journalist.
Now Obama would like to invest more US dollars in training and arming a new set of rebels in the Middle East known as the modern rebels to fight against ISIS so America doesn’t have to put any US military men on ground in Iraq and Syria.
A smart person learns from his mistakes.
A wise person learns from the mistakes of others.
An insane person makes the same mistakes over and over again expecting different results.
Rumors are fine, but I highly doubt all the blame lies with just one administration. Obama has dropped the ball and we will be paying for it in blood. Bush 2 did decent on national defense, but at a heavy cost. Clinton just ignored it and we ended up paying for it in blood. Bush 1 was meh, but we ended up paying for his mistakes with blood. Reagan was probably the best of recent presidencies, but even then we ended up with blood on the ground. Carter was a HUGE screw up and we could paint the White House with the blood on his hands.
What I’m saying is the political climate drives a lot of the policies and every administration wants to play politics instead of tackling the real issues. The next president will do it, so will the one after him, and so on and so on.
We the people are where change starts, not the president or his/her administration. Until we get serious about our own defense, foreign and domestic, there will not be a politician that will do it for us without another 9/11 forcing their hands.
