John Lott on the nominee for head of BATFE
In National Review Online, John Lott discusses the record of record of Andrew Traver, nominee for Director of the agency.
"Mr. Traver has done more than make clearly inaccurate claims about so-called “assault weapons.” He has supported banning .50-caliber rifles, regulations that would force many gun shows to close down, the Chicago handgun ban, and repealing the Tiahrt Amendment, which protects sensitive trace data from being misused in frivolous municipal lawsuits against gun makers. He also worked with the Joyce Foundation, which has funded gun-ban groups such as the Violence Policy Center, on the “Gun Violence Reduction Project.”"
But of course, it's just REASONABLE regulation.
One man's "reasonable" is another man's fanaticism.
