    Biden: 'Administration doesn't have time to prosecute people who lie on Form 4473s'

    Jim Baker, director of Federal Affairs for the NRA-ILA, represented the organization during a meeting with Vice President Joe Biden earlier this month. Baker called for more enforcement of current gun laws, noting the low number of prosecutions for those who lie on forms necessary to buy a firearm.

    Biden responded with: "And to your point, Mr. Baker, regarding the lack of prosecutions on lying on Form 4473s, we simply don't have the time or manpower to prosecute everybody who lies on a form, that checks a wrong box, that answers a question inaccurately."

    And therein lies a big problem, one that won't be fixed by adding more work (read: laws to enforce) onto the backs of those who don't have the time to enforce laws already on the books.

    With regards to the NRA's lobbying to limit the capacity of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, it must be remembered that the ATF is wholly an organization founded on unconstitutional grounds when it was created to enforce alcohol taxation, and then prohibition. While I don't always agree with the NRA, their effectiveness at lobbying for restrictions on the ATF has been substantial and, in my opinion, overall positive. The ATF can't even keep tabs on the guns they themselves released into criminals' hands via Fast and Furious, much less be responsible for enforcing the laws in our nation.

    Foot in mouth Biden is his own worst enemy. His task force was nothing more than a make the people think that this administration is out to protect the masses but in reality is just a means to carry out their own agenda to implement an AWB.

    But they do have time to sue states for enforcing immigration laws... interesting set of priorities.
