Op-ed: ''Gun Control - Only the Truth Will Set You Free''

By Howard Nemerov

The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence recently published a paper claiming that the federal government is not enforcing federal gun laws because of a conspiracy of collusion between the Bush administration and the “gun lobby.”

Brady also claims that the NRA used its lobbying muscle to force the ATF to stop performing traces on guns involved in crime that are recovered by law enforcement. The purpose of tracing is to enable law enforcement to “quickly determine the origin of crime guns.” Brady also complains that Congress prohibits “ATF from obtaining sales records from gun dealers and centralizing them” and that the Brady Law has been compromised, requiring the government to destroy all “information on the approved purchaser” after the sale is approved.

Brady disapproves of the fact that after a buyer has been determined to be a law-abiding citizen, the government does not keep track of their personal information. To do what Brady wants requires creating a gun registry.
