You Gotta Love This
Dave Weigel inadvertently reveals something in an article
intended to quell concerns about Biden's claim that Obama will handle gun control via an executive order. One of the suggestions by gun control advocates:
Directing the DOJ to prosecute more "prohibited purchasers"
when they attempt to buy guns. In 2009, the FBI referred 71,000 cases
of thse buyers, mostly felons. U.S. attorneys prosecuted only 77 cases.
Yep, that's right. When convicted felons, the one group of people who everyone agrees shouldn't have guns, attempted to purchase a gun, about 1 in a thousand was actually prosecuted for that crime.
