The Real History

Cam Edwards notices some inconsistencies in some of Bryan Miller’s statements, and points out the true history of the Tiahrt Amendment:

The ATF has been opposed to the general release of its trace data since at least 1999, when Chicago Mayor Richard Daley sued the ATF to try and gain access to the data under the Freedom of Information Act.  The ATF, under the Clinton administration, also felt that this information should not be available to the general public.

It wasn’t until the case was headed to the Supreme Court in 2003 that Congress stepped in and passed the Tiahrt Amendment, rendering the Daley case moot.

The facts are such inconvenient things for the gun control movement.
