    NRA uses Justice memo to accuse Obama on guns

    By ALAN FRAM
    Associated Press

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The National Rifle Association is using a Justice Department memo it obtained to argue in ads that the Obama administration believes its gun control plans won't work unless the government seizes firearms and requires national gun registration - ideas the White House has not proposed and does not support.

    The NRA's assertion and its obtaining of the memo in the first place underscore the no-holds-barred battle under way as Washington's fight over gun restrictions heats up.

    The memo, under the name of one of the Justice Department's leading crime researchers, critiques the effectiveness of gun control proposals, including some of President Barack Obama's. A Justice Department official called the memo an unfinished review of gun violence research and said it does not represent administration policy.

    The memo says requiring background checks for more gun purchases could help, but also could lead to more illicit weapons sales. It says banning assault weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines produced in the future but exempting those already owned by the public, as Obama has proposed, would have limited impact because people now own so many of those items.

    It also says that even total elimination of assault weapons would have little overall effect on gun killings because assault weapons account for a limited proportion of those crimes.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    Sounds like the AP was kinda ticked that the NRA got a copy of it.

    I thought for once the main stream media was actually stating facts, not opinion or made up stats.

    For once I would wish that each and every intelligent man think for himself. Not what the government thinks on your behalf, and not relying on an entity speaking on your behalf....but actually standing up for yourself despite what you hear or give faith to. Quit placing the blame for your shortcomings on someone else for once in your life and get real.
    To hell with the blame game. Just look in the mirror and decide for yourself.

    Sadly, this entire battle will be won or lost based on who has the most money to support "who" in public office.
    Just have a look how Bloomberg is trying to buy the special election in Illinois.
