Statement from John Kerry on Bush-Ashcroft Deal to Get Rid of Background Check Records

Location: Unknown

November 26, 2003

For Immediate Release

"George Bush and John Ashcroft are handcuffing law enforcement on the front lines of the war on terror by buckling to the NRA. It's a powerful commentary about the era of Ashcroft that the Attorney General will abuse the civil liberties of law abiding citizens under the guise of the war on terror. But when it comes to actually fighting the war on terror, John Ashcroft sides with powerful special interests over law enforcement."
