The Biden White House has for the most part worked hand-in-glove with gun control advocacy groups toward their shared goals of civilian disarmament. But a lawsuit against the government by survivors of the Sutherland Springs attack in 2017 is putting a strain on this harmonious relationship and causing embarrassment to all concerned. That’s because defending the suit has forced the government to admit inconvenient truths about the limitations of gun control. Now Biden & Company face a tough choice: Pony up more than $230 million or appeal the current judgment against the government and incur the wrath of its usual allies by truthfully admitting the top priority of gun controllers doesn’t really stop violent criminals.
It’s significant they had already argued in the case that even background check denials would not likely have stopped the perpetrator, nor could the Air Force had known from his commission of domestic violence that he had the potential to carry out a different type of attack. Both those admissions essentially negate any further claims by the Biden Administration that firearm background checks have any essential role to play in public safety.

Biden DOJ Angers Gun Control Allies by Truthfully Admitting NICS Can’t Stop Violent Criminals
[It is such a pleasure to see the truth we have been shouting from the rooftops for decades finally putting the squeeze on the anti-gun people. With the Bruen case behind us the legal environment is essentially won with “just” a decade or two of mop-up left. As seen above the practical argument is becoming more and more one sided. The philosophical argument is easily won which may be why the anti-gun people almost never push that angle.—Joe]
