Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland does not know that I.D. is required to purchase a firearm, despite the undo ‘burden’ it places on prospective buyers.
The line of questioning during a House Appropriations Committee hearing begins around the 4:30 mark of the video below:
Ben Cline (R-VA) asked “Current law requires a prospective buyer of a firearm to provide a photo I.D….would you argue that that is a reasonable requirement?”
“I…uh uh…I…I would…but I don’t know what the requirements are. Again, this is slightly beyond my area of expertise.”
Beyond his area of expertise? He is the Attorney General of the United States of America. This is precisely supposed to be his area of expertise.
When Kline reads to Garland the legal requirement for I.D. to purchase a gun and asks Garland again whether he would agree with such a requirement, Garland responds in the affirmative
“I would.” says garland.
So, the Attorney General of the United States has to be told that the burden of an I.D. is required to exercise the 2nd amendment guarantee to be able to buy a gun. This is completely new knowledge to him, yet somehow he holds one of the highest laws in the land to uphold such laws.
But that isn’t the most paradoxical thing he said in these few minutes.
After insisting that voter ID should be necessary to exercise one’s 2nd Amendment rights, he then says no voter ID should be required in order to prove a person is a legal voter in an election.
Is there any way Garland doesn’t see the absurdity of his contradictory statements?
Does he lack cognitive abilities or does he lack scruples?
