Sessions Orders Review of FBI Gun Database

Daily Caller: Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday ordered a sweeping review of the FBI database used to check the backgrounds of prospective gun buyers one week after a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation discovered that convicted felons and other “prohibited persons” could buy guns by lying on their applications.

TheDCNF found in an exclusive investigative report published Nov. 15 that more than 100,000 people with criminal records or mental disabilities each year lied on their federal gun applications. But throughout eight years in office, the Obama administration prosecuted only 30 to 40 people each year.

Sessions directed the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to determine if other government agencies are failing to report information to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, the main database for denying guns to criminals, according to CBS News.

The Attorney General further demanded a report outlining the number of times agencies investigate and prosecute people for lying on their gun-purchase applications. He called the situation “alarming.”  read more

  1. Wait, you mean he didn’t recuse himself? But I thought he saw a movie once that had a gun fight. See, he should have recused himself. Shame on you, Jeffie.

  2. Friend to Sessions: Your wife is cheating on you.
    Sessions: Gee, that’s ALARMING..
    Friend to Sessions: What are you going to do about it?
    Sessions: What’s the weather forecast for today?

  3. It almost seems as if Sessions is tying up the DOJ/FBI and allocating resource $$$ for “sweeping” studies/investigations that matter little, as opposed to real DC corruption.
    Why even the newly created position of “Overseer of Fairness” tasked to take calls from ppl caught up in Asset Forfeiture must at least be upwards a $75k position.

  4. Non-enforcement of gun laws (are any other laws for that matter) serves the interests of the swamp as justification for yet more laws.

    The more laws, the more power in the hands of those who decide when, how, and on whom they do choose to enforce them.

    The more laws, the less rule of law and the more rule of men.

  5. Jeffy has to be one of worst picks of the entire administration, or he could be inherently lazy.
    he does not even I have one half of the energy and drive of President Trump. JB has never been a passenger on the trump train. Maybe there’s a supervisor job open a local McDonald’s you can handle!

  6. I think there are dirty pictures of JS with a prostitute out there.

    What else explains his total lack of interest in prosecuting James Comey, Loretta Lynch, Eric Holder, Lous Lerner, the former POTUS, and the Hildabeast?

  7. Has Sessions ever owned a gun? If so, he must recuse himself.

    Ever enjoyed a movie where someone used a gun in a manner not consistent with responsible ownership? Recuse.

  8. War on Drugs? Good! War on Guns? Good! Hillary the highest level traitor in the nation’s history? Na, nothing there. . .

    Mr. President; please FIRE THIS WORTHLESS POS!!!
