    the kind and you are lying by stating they do....

    Even the most radical like Jews for the Preservation of Firearms are in favor of nailing illicit dealers to the wall....

    •  Sanford Abrams (0+ / 0-)

      Read and weep:

      "Using his finest Orwellian doublespeak, Rep. Howard Coble (R-N.C.) defended his bill gutting the power of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to revoke the licenses of lawbreaking gun shops as a bill to "modernize" the bureau [letters, Aug. 1].

      The bill, backed by the gun lobby, was introduced just after the license held by National Rifle Association board member Sanford M. Abrams for his shop, Valley Gun of Baltimore, was revoked for 900 federal gun law violations. Mr. Abrams's shop was also one of the top suppliers of guns used in crimes in the nation. The Justice Department called the store a "serial violator" of gun laws that "endangered the public" by failing to account for hundreds of weapons."

      •  I wonder why (0+ / 0-)

        buddabelly feels the need to lie?

        Here, you have a case of one of the most notorious gun traffickers--who was elected to the NRA board of directors after his many gun violations were known.

        Then, when it appeared Sanford Abrams--NRA board of directors--was in deep kimchee, the gun lobby tried to get the laws changed.

        But budda calls the truth lies...

        Since 97 eh?

        So that's about 2.5% of all the firearms he's purchased (650 out of the 27k he sold.) 900 violations is a lot. What were all the violations?
