NSSF Sells out on background checks.

Quote:Gun manufacturers group won’t fight background checks
By Liz Goodwin, Yahoo! News | The Ticket – 2 hrs 25 mins ago

Bob Pfefferkorn sells handguns at the Gun, Knife and Outdoorsmen Show in Fort Wayne, Indiana, on Feb. 9, 2013. …

The nation's leading lobby for gun manufacturers said in an interview with The Washington Post that it will not oppose legislation to expand background checks for gun purchases.

"That’s more the NRA’s issue,” Steve Sanetti, president of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), told The Washington Post. “From the commercial side, we’re already there, and we’ve been there, and we were the ones that have been the strongest proponents of an effective, complete background check.”

The group's position puts it at odds with the powerful National Rifle Association and is also a potential boon for a bipartisan group of senators working on legislation to expand background checks. Currently, gun buyers must pass a background check to prove they do not have a serious criminal record or have been declared mentally ill by a judge before they can purchase a weapon. But those who buy firearms from individuals who are not licensed gun dealers can avoid this check.

The manufacturers have decided that they're good with all background checks. More here. You can contact the NSSF here.

It's crap. See NSSF's response. Media creating controversy by using things out of context. Nothing new there.

That came out AFTER a number of us contacted them telling them that we didn't appreciate the manufacturers selling out their consumers. NSSF did not have a viable response available yesterday morning.

And you are happy with that response?

The media report is right, gun owners cannot get on the same page regarding background checks. There are so many gun owners out there who support incredibly invasive background checks, permits, registration, mental health exams, etc. It's absolutely sickening. For every gun owner who tells me they are sick of their rights being taken away, there is another one who wants even more regulation.
