ile this under “You just can’t make this crap up.” The RNC recently put out an ad which includes an attack on President Obama for not passing…

Wait for it….

Gun reform.

Yes, you’ve read that correctly. The RNC has put out an ad which attacks President Obama for not passing the very same gun reform which 41 Republican Senators voted against a couple of weeks ago—defeating the bill.

First, let’s try to ignore the fact that this ad resembles a sequel to The Blair Witch Project more than a reputable political ad…

But what this ad basically does is attack Obama for not getting enough legislation passed in his first 100 days of his second term. The main 2 points it focuses on are the sequester (caused by Republicans when they took the debt ceiling vote hostage) and the defeat of the gun bill which would have expanded background checks (again, which 41 GOP Senators voted against despite over 80% of Americans supporting expanded background checks).

A universal background check bill would have been possible if there were strong provisions that a de facto gun registration database were not a result of the background checks. The gun control advocates goofed by going for guns bans, magazine bans, and the threat of gun (gun owner) registration.

I am in favor of a universal background check (even though it would do little to reduce gun crime) if there is no national database of gun owners.

The bill specifically and explicitly says the background checks can't be used for a federal registry. It can't be more clear than that.

It said ATF cannot use the information for a gun registry. It did not mention other agencies.
