During an interview with the UK’s iNews, former FBI director James Comey called for more controls on the types of guns and sizes of ammunition magazines sold in the U.S. and suggested the NRA propagates “lies.”

iNews quoted Comey indicating he is not for an all-out ban on private on gun ownership, but he does support making changes to current law, including an increase in the legal age for gun purchases.

Comey said:

Surely there are things we can agree upon that relate to who’s able to buy a weapon, what kind of weapon and at what age, what the capabilities of the weapon are, how many rounds does it hold, and things like that, that in no way threaten the rights under the US constitution of people to keep and bear arms.

He criticized the NRA as standing in the way of securing these controls, saying, “One of the worst things that goes on in the US is the current voice of the National Rifle Association, because it sells fear in the wake of any incident.” He specifically mentioned the NRA’s opposition to the gun controls which were pushed in the wake of the December 14, 2012, attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School

The post-Sandy Hook gun control consisted largely of expanding background checks to private gun sales. Comey voiced support for these checks speaking to iNews, but he did not mention the fact that such an expansion would do nothing to prevent another Sandy Hook-style attack. In fact, such an expansion would not have prevented the first Sandy Hook attack because the gunman did not buy his firearms at retail or from a private seller. Rather, he stole them.


This is one of the firearms that Mrs. Lanza purchased for her son.

Comey needs to go do something anatomically impossible.

A very good reason for every last American to read the constitution and specifically the 2nd amendment and pay special attention to the wording on protecting yourself from "enemies foreign and domestic", then I believe they will be enlightened. If that lying low life son of a bitch isn't an enemy of the state I don't what would be. So naturally that ass wipe would love to have all the guns taken away from anyone that might decide to hang his sorry ass.. geez, and these people are supposed to be highly educated, they just keep digging their hole deeper and deeper. A smart man that was caught doing the things this guy did would be hiding somewhere. It is people like him and those others who would get a civil war started through their felonies committed, and I call it a coup for what it really is , not a criminal act but a coup, shouldn't even be in the civil branches seeing how it was an act of war and it would have been wrapped up about 6 months ago. He is a snake and still has friends in high places so he is banking on being let off the hook. What would they do if a couple million Americans heavily armed were to surround his house and demand he be prosecuted and any other person or politician that attempts to interfere with the laws of the land as they are now doing.
