Your Gun Is In The Government's Sights! Rand Paul's Amendment to Protect the Privacy of Gun Owners under the Patriot Act was Defeated :: 08/16/2011
If you read the July 29th issue of Gun Owners of America , you can read all the bad news relating to gun ownership control and the assault gun owners are under. The latest shocking news involves so-called 'conservative' Republican Senators, including not-so-conservative, John Cornyn and Kay Bailey Hutchison, who voted against Senator Rand Paul's amendment (85-10) which would have exempted gun records-including 4473's (the form all purchasers fill out when they buy a firearm from a licensed dealer-from the blanket searches by the ATF under the Patriot Act. Without Paul's exemption, it is possible that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives could go to a secret FISA court and without any defense attorneys present, obtain an order to produce every 4473 in the country, ostensibly because a "terrorism investigation" requires it. If such an action were taken, the government would have a list of every FFL-related gun buyer in the country going back decades.
