Watchdog raises concerns over FBI stripping gun rights from citizens: “Abuse of government”
- March 10, 2023
On Tuesday, the Washington Examiner revealed that the FBI worked hand-in-hand with medical facilities in New Hampshire, Delaware, Massachusetts, and Oklahoma to waive gun rights with internal forms from at least five people. Now, watchdogs are calling for accountability and putting the federal government on blast for its actions in connection to the forms, which were not authorized through Congress.
“Instead of operating within the constraints of the law and the Constitution that are in place to protect the rights of American citizens, it seems too many within government spend their time looking for ways around those constraints,” Michael Chamberlain, director of Protect the Public’s Trust, told the Washington Examiner. “Apparently, it is too much to ask that the agencies charged with enforcing the law also obey it where it applies to them. Doing so would go a long way toward restoring the public’s faith in its government.”
