Putting the AAP in charge of implementing public access policies is thus
the logical equivalent of passing a bill mandating background checks for
firearms purchasing and putting the NRA in charge of developing and
operating the database. They would have no interest in making the system
any more than minimally functional. Indeed, given that the AAP clearly
thinks that public access policies are bad for their businesses, they would
have a strong incentive to make their implementation of a public access
policy as difficult to use and as functionless as possible in order to
drive down usage and make the policies appear to be a failure.
