Why is no one outraged over 60 Minutes last night?
The SOB's frighten America with all this terrorist Bushit, they sell the country down the river and did you hear what Ashcrack did? (even I didn't know this).
"The real question here is we do not know who has these terribly destructive rifles," says Diaz. "No one in the United States government knows who has these guns."
"Aren't records kept when a gun is sold," asks Bradley.
"The answer is no," says Diaz.
Under the Brady Bill, sales records of guns used to be kept for 90 days, which enabled the FBI to check the names of gun purchasers against terror watch lists.
A year ago, at Attorney General John Ashcroft’s initiative, Congress reduced the period of record keeping from 90 days to 24 hours. That’s the policy that’s in effect today.

Ashcroft blocking the FBI from using purchase records to see if any of the 1000+ suspected terrorists he'd rounded up had bought a gun. It's okay to hold these guys without charge or trial, but he draws the line at invading their privacy w/regard to their weapons-buying habits
Michael Moore twisted the Bush Administration's lack of support for mandatory ballistic fingerprinting. He claimed that Bush opposed the very practice of ballistic forensics in homocide investigations. One of the more disgusting lies I've ever heard him tell.
"Bashing Ashcroft for following the law with regards to the NICS "

Maybe they are bashing him due to him introducing a change in the law. Not that he is enforcing the law as it was re-written at his request.
Either way, I thought the FFL keeps those records as long as he keeps his FFL.
They revere anything that is anti-freedom. They are the enemy.
AG Ashcroft is a truly great American. No matter what the future holds for our great nation, he deserves an enduring place of honor for his defense of our God-given right to keep and bear arms in these perilous times.
All Ashcroft bashers can FOAD as far as I'm concerned.
I fear the day that the radical left comes to power in this country.
May it never come to pass!
