They want you to say
(and you lose if you say): GUN-SHOW LOOPHOLE
It's better to say
(and they lose if you say): FREEDOM TO PURCHASE
Arizona Senator John McCain seemed like an all right guy when we
elected him many years ago. Now he seems like the Manchurian Candidate
-- a brainwashed former POW (6 years in Nam), who all-of-a-sudden
drops any pretense of the conservative politics that got him elected,
and literally enlists with radical left-wing campaigns of the Democratic
party. His website and televised speeches contain gross falsehoods,
foisting federal gun-show infringement schemes as a crime deterrant,
and grotesque abridgments of free speech as campaign finance reform.
Take a look at what his gun show proposals really say, then see
if you think you've been getting accurate reporting. The news media,
once again, should be ashamed of itself.
GUN SHOW BILL IS NOT WHAT THEY
SAY Mass media publicity on the proposed McCain-Lieberman Gun Show
Bill is grossly inaccurate. It's really about federal registration
of gun shows, vendors, and every person who attends. Detailed analysis
in plain English.
GUN SHOW BILL IS EVEN WORSE
Could Close Gun Shows Completely
If anyone at a gun show offers (not even sells, but offers) a gun
anyone else at the show -- even a gun they don't have with them
seller, buyer, AND gun show operator can be arrested. You don't
need a prohibited possessor (a criminal) involved. No operator will
a show with that kind of legal risk. Full plain-English descriptions,
with citations. SHOULD CONGRESS CLOSE DOWN
The McCain-Lieberman bill practically requires gun-show closures
they're not mentioning it, and the media doesn't know it. Here is
Letter to the Editor, a short and sweet summary, that you can mail
yourself to wake up your local reporters.
Institue Website Report
Author David Kopel and I co-authored a detailed report on McCain's
proposals to close gun shows (reported by the media as a loophole
of some sort). Read it at the Independence Institue website.
