A very interesting BOMBSHELL was revealed during a recent Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, about law enforcement’s faulty response to Parkland, Florida shooter Nikolas Cruz.
It seems that one of Sen. Diane Feinstein’s researchers came across a nice little nugget of information…. something they thought they could get the Trump administration in trouble over… and it backfired. BIGLY.
It turns out that During Obama’s second term 500,000 criminals (meaning, people who can’t buy guns) were removed from the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (so now they CAN buy guns) all because they may have crossed state lines, and may (or may not be) fugitives? Seriously???
As a Daily Wire article quotes from the Senate hearing,
“It’s my understanding that under federal law fugitives cannot legally purchase or possess guns,” Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) began. “We’ve heard from local law enforcement that the Justice Department has issued a memo that forced the FBI NICS background check database to drop more than 500,000 names of fugitives with outstanding arrest warrants because it was uncertain whether those fugitives had fled across state lines.”
“Mr. Bowdich, can you describe why this determination was made by the Justice Department?” Feinstein asked.
“That was a decision that was made under the previous administration,” Bowdich replied. “It was the Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel that reviewed the law and believed that it needed to be interpreted so that if someone was a fugitive in a state, there had to be indications that they had crossed state lines.”
You can watch this spectacle of insane logic below:
So… this is a big deal, folks. You’ve got 500,000 criminals who may have been “on the run” from the law, who all of sudden can buy all the guns they want…. and this went undetected for YEARS. It is logical to assume that they now have an arsenal that would rival any Bruce Willis movie. And what, pray tell, do you think would happen when law enforcement comes knocking at their door? You think they will hand it all over nicely?? Not so much.
You almost HAVE to wonder if this had ANYTHING to do with the Fast and Fusion scandal, too…. especially since that whole fiasco centered around known criminals buying guns from a store in Phoenix, AZ, to (supposedly) track were the guns wound up. I have always wondered how that was even possible, since they were known criminals to begin with. Did the Obama DOJ clear their records (claiming they might be fugitives) to clear the path for the Fast and Furious operation???
I hope we find out the truth soon… because my brain hurts from even getting CLOSE to that kind of a mental rabbit hole! Apologies in advance, if your brain hurts now too! 😉
