The NRA: A Criminal’s Best Friend | Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence

The NRA: A Criminal’s Best Friend

This report shows how the National Rifle Association's claim that we just need to "fully enforce existing federal gun laws" rather than "pass new gun laws" is utter hypocrisy. It exposes how the NRA has tirelessly worked to handcuff the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to prevent the enforcement of federal gun laws.

The NRA: A Criminal's Best Friend examines decades of concerted NRA action, illustrating how the NRA's campaign against federal gun law enforcers has made it far too easy for gun traffickers and criminals to obtain firearms. It reveals how the NRA has undermined ATF's ability to crack down on rogue gun dealers and prevent illegal sales at gun shows. It shows how the NRA has repeatedly attacked ATF agents for doing their jobs, branding them as "a jack-booted group of fascists" and comparing them to Nazis and murderers. It reveals the NRA's true colors, as a criminal's best friend.
