When a person is found guilty of a felony, they are not allowed to purchase a firearm, have one in their possession, home or vehicle.
It is a felony to attempt to purchase a firearm with a felony on your record.
The attempt to purchase carries a sentence of ten years in prison.
(IOt is also a 10 year felony to lie on the form 4473)
Last year there were 28,000 felons who attempted to purchase a firearm. They failed the instant background check due to their felony conviction.
President Obama and Eric Holder only attempted to prosecute 77 of those felony attempts to purchase firearms. They let 27,923 cases of FEDERAL felony
crimes just languish and go to waste.
If they were serious about keeping firearms out of the hands of criminals then they would have prosecuted 28,000 FEDERAL felony attempts to purchase
firearms. That is what the "instant background check is all about".
They do not want to keep firearms out of criminals hands, they want to keep them out of everyones hands.
