Dem Senator Targets Gun Group Over Its Secret Gun Registry

Daily Beast
Jose Pagliery, Political Investigations Reporter
Published Oct. 03, 2022

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) is taking aim at a gun industry association for the way it engaged in a tax-dodging “voter education” scheme that also violated a core tenet of Second Amendment enthusiasts: compiling a detailed database of gun buyers.

The Daily Beast has obtained a letter, which Blumenthal sent to the National Shooting Sports Foundation on Friday, calling out the association for allegedly amassing a list of gun owners and what types of guns they own—all to further its voter influence campaigns.

NSSF is made up of the nation’s largest gun makers and once had a running political campaign deal with Cambridge Analytica, the now-defunct British data analytics company caught meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.

Blumenthal’s letter cites damning details that were exposed when Cambridge Analytica emails were leaked two years ago but received little attention at the time.

IOW, They can have a (secret) gun owner registry, but we, the people, can't demand registration of firearms.

1. Subpoena their records



Since they’re already collecting that data seems like a win win to me.

2. NRA also had/has(?) a comprehensive list of gun owners.

The same NRA which passed along Russia's rubles to our politicians.
