JPFO Alert: Supreme Court Ruling is About Registration, not Crime Control

Today's JPFO Alert notes that Justice Kagan admits that the most important aspect of any gun sale is that the federal government knows who has the gun.

In 2012, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives added a new question to ATF Form 4473--the form that must be filled out when purchasing a firearm, and the form on which Abramski admittedly lied. Now, every gun purchaser must answer whether or not he or she is of "Hispanic or Latino" ethnicity. As attorney and firearms law expert Evan Nappen notes, there is no real difference between that question, and a demand--backed up by federal law, and enforced with the full power of the U.S. government--that the purchaser answer whether he or she is a "Jew or Not a Jew."

And now, the Supreme Court has ruled that this is just fine.

And as always, if you haven't seen all the great JPFO Alerts written by David, Nicki, and Claire, you owe it to yourself to fix that.
