Glenn Beck now puts video of his morning staff meetings online, which is often quite amusing as his staff smiles and nods while he rants incoherently. Last Thursday he told them that the ATF has now switched the departments that lick stamps and do background checks for guns in order to gum up the works and delay gun licenses.
This is nonsense. It did not happen. You know how I know that? Because the ATF does not do the background checks for gun licenses, the FBI does. The National Instant Criminal Background Check System is an FBI program, not ATF. But hey, there’s no need to let a pesky little fact get in the way of a perfectly good rant, is there?
