I was going to use another ICYMI title for this, but that makes the assumption that you could have noticed it in the first place. Minitrue did a good job of burying this…
As we’ve mentioned before, NICS checks are setting new records every month. Now one would think, given the Obama regime’s fondness for “universal” background checks, that the would also be record numbers of federal prosecutions resulting from the denied checks. While most are cases of mistaken identity, some are felons and other prohibited persons. Their attempts to buy guns are federal felonies and should result in prosecutions.
One would think.
However, Loretta Lynch, when she’s not taking secret meetings with Bill Clinton, is dutifully ignoring these opportunities to put potentially violent felons in prison. Rather than going up, federal prosecutions are setting records for all time lows!
So one has to wonder, why would we give the regime more gun laws when they ignore the ones already on the books? To borrow a phrase from Hillary Clinton, what difference does it make?
