When Adam started to have problems at school Nancy saw shooting as the ‘perfect outlet’ for ‘bonding sessions’ together.
The book explains that in order to do this, Nancy had to lie to get him his own guns.
On the ATF transaction paperwork – on which it was a federal offence to lie – Nancy ticked the boxes that indicated she was buying the weapons for herself and nobody else.
During the National Rifle Association’s meeting with Vice President Joe Biden and the White House gun violence task force, the vice president said the Obama administration does not have the time to fully enforce existing gun laws.
Jim Baker, the NRA representative present at the meeting, recalled the vice president’s words during an interview with The Daily Caller: “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.”
Submitting false information on an ATF Form 4473 — required for the necessary background check to obtain a firearm — is a felony punishable by up to ten years in prison, depending on prior convictions and a judge’s discretion, according to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
