Cutting funds for gun control


NRA via Sebastian a prohibition on the use of funds for “Operation Choke Point,” a program that chokes off banking services to legitimate businesses;
a prohibition on funds to prevent the Obama Administration from banning commonly used ammunition, such as M855;
a prohibition on the use of funds to prevent the Justice Department (or any government entity) from spending taxpayer dollars on “gun walking” programs such as the flawed and controversial “Operation Fast and Furious”;
a prohibition on the use of funds to maintain any record or gun registry on multiple rifle or shotgun sales to law-abiding individuals;
a prohibition of funds for collecting data regarding a person’s race or ethnicity on a Form 4473 when purchasing a firearm.

As Sebastian points out, the administration is likely to just do it anyway. He'll be out of office before anyone can call him on it, even if the courts prove willing to do so. But putting the prohibitions in place is a step forward.
