    Sessions calls on U.S. attorneys to aggressively prosecute gun buyers who lie on background checks

    Source: Washington Post

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Monday that U.S. attorneys will more aggressively enforce the law that makes it a crime for gun buyers to lie on their federal background checks, one of several steps Justice Department officials outlined as part of the Trump administration’s response to last month’s deadly school shooting in Parkland, Fla.

    The Justice Department also will increase the presence of law enforcement officers at schools and continue to review the way law enforcement agencies respond to tips from the public, Sessions said.

    “No child should have to fear going to school or walking the streets of their neighborhood,” Sessions said in a statement.

    Lying on a federal background check when purchasing a firearm is a felony that can be punished by up to five years in prison, but the crime is rarely prosecuted, according to current and former Justice Department officials. Sessions ordered federal prosecutors to “swiftly and aggressively” prosecute cases against people who are prohibited from having firearms and lie on a federal form to pass the background check.

    That's right, and it took a Republican to insist on it.

    Now why do you suppose the OBAMA DOJ didn't prosecute those who lied on their background checks?

    Local DA's also need to step up. The Milwaukee DA is know for not going after possession charges when a felon is caught with a gun.

    Lots of plea-bargaining on those cases here, too.

    Somebody's speaking without thinking. Trump's been in office for just 13 months. That means that this policy change changes Obama policy and practice!
    Facts don't matter to DUpipo.

    Note to "Warpy" and "shockey80": I voted for Donald Trump! I would do so again!
