The following excerpt is from an article that originally appeared on The Truth About Guns
The federal background check system for firearms purchases is an unconstitutional infringement of Americans’ natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. The only NICS “fix” I support: nix NICS.
Not to put too fine a point on it, NICS is a form of gun control. But let me be perfectly clear . . .
I know that many gun rights advocates approve of federal background checks for new gun purchases from an FFL. How these gun owners — indeed the NRA — can support “fixing NICS” and say it shouldn’t extend to private sales is beyond me.
But what’s not beyond me: the certainty that Daniel Defense makes magnificent rifles. And that Marty Daniel is, as Sean Hannity would say, a great American. I reckon Mr. Daniel’s defense of NICS (below) reflects his desire to head them (the antis) off at the pass.
