I think, to be fair, they just told it like it is. I didn't notice any mistakes in their explanation of either dealer or private sales, and I would rate the accuracy here infinitely better than almost any news source. To be perfectly honest, in some ways (i.e. private sales) it is much easier to buy a gun than to vote, but, of course, I didn't see anything wrong with that. Both things (voting and gun ownership) are protected in the Constitution; however, only one of them comes implicitly with a restriction, and that is voting. There is no limit to the number of guns you can buy or when you can buy them, but there are limits to how many times and when you can vote. So I think, naturally, there should be more restrictions on voting, as to prevent abuses in the system.
Where Howell totally falls of the cliff is in thinking that things are changing drastically. In my analysis of this year's bills (including the voter ID bill) not much is actually getting easier or harder. Howell is being an average anti-gun, anti-freedom individual and spreading gloom and doom over nothing.
