President Obama Undermines Case Against Universal E-Verify
“First, it’s time for Congress to require a universal background check on anyone trying to buy a gun.” These were President Obama’s words as he outlined his plans for gun control legislation on Wednesday.FAIR takes no position on gun issues, but the president’s unequivocal support for universal checks demonstrates two things:

- The president does not consider there to be any technological impediments to carrying out universal checks before someone is permitted to purchase a firearm.
