House Dem majority will push for law making private gun sales ILLEGAL

(National SentinelStyle Not Substance: In what amounts to additional proof that the incoming Democratic majority in the House isn’t really serious about helping lead the nation, the party of the donkey plans to introduce legislation to criminalize private sales of firearms.

As reported by far-Left Mother Jones, Rep. Mike Thompson, D-Calif., is ready to do the bidding of several anti-gun groups after meeting with representatives from Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Everytown for Gun Safety, the Center for American Progress, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, and Gabby Giffords’ group, among others.

He asked what those groups wanted and topping the list was the criminalization of private gun sales, as though that is the most pressing issue facing our country today.

As such, Thompson is planning to sponsor legislation that would require an FBI background check before Americans can purchase guns from friends, neighbors, co-workers, or other acquaintances.

In fact, Breitbart News added, the bill would even require a background check for a son before a father could give him a firearm as a gift.

Mother Jones reports that Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA) met with gun control groups that included the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Everytown for Gun Safety, the Center for American Progress, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, and Gabby Giffords’ group. He asked them what they wanted, and a bill to criminalize private gun sales was on their wish list.

Note that currently private gun sales are legal and have been since the Bill of Rights were ratified in 1791.

Also note that a law criminalizing private gun sales without background checks would not have stopped a single mass shooting this century, as nearly all mass shooters acquired their guns legally, through a retailer after passing a background check. The only exception to this were those who stole their guns.

“While the Democrats’ gun control push will not prevent mass shootings, it will criminalize a grandfather for passing his goose gun to his grandson without government permission,” Breitbart’s Awr Hawkins wrote.

“It will also criminalize a mother who gives her college-age daughter a revolver for self-defense without first getting government permission,” he added.

This bill has zero chance of passing the GOP-controlled Senate, let alone getting past POTUS Donald Trump’s veto pen. So Thompson’s effort is much more style than substance.

That said, how come it’s okay for Left-wing Democrats to be “beholden” to anti-gun groups but Republicans can’t align themselves with gun-rights groups like the NRA?

Not a single mass shooter thus far has been a member of the NRA — not that it would matter since the pro-gun group is not advocating that its members become mass murderers anyway (and has condemned these killers in each and every instance).

But anti-gun groups that are responsible for policies that take away firearms or make them harder to obtain certainly do have blood on their hands by depriving victims of their God-given and constitutionally protected right to use a gun for self-defense.

  1. I’m going to say this, even though I know it’s akin to “pissing in the wind” but it’s long past time that we begin to HIT BACK HARD against these people. And I mean SERIOUSLY. As in filing lawsuits AND impeachment procedures against them — and not only in targeting them in their capacity as office-holders, but ALSO against them PERSONALLY.

    Also, on the STATE levels, State Legislatures should pass laws that mandate IMPRISONMENT for any State Legislator who introduces ANY anti-gun bill. I believe that several years ago, Missouri, in fact, DID pass such a bill into its State Law.

    These ideas are just quickly off of the top of my head — I encourage others to take up the baton, by figuring out ADDITIONAL ways to HIT BACK HARD against these a$$holes.

    And — just for the record — not saying that I’D participate — if I ever were to read on the Internet, about any of these a$$holes having suffered the effects of “vigilante justice” — I wouldn’t shed a single tear ( and THAT’S an EXTREME understatement ! )

  2. stirring up the proles isn’t going to do anyone any good at all.

    no anti gun legislation will be passed by the senate or signed by the President. Carry on.

  3. No Judge, Supreme or otherwise has any authority over the Constitution!
    Same applies to state legislators!

    The ignorant masses have allowed judges, both state and federal to infringe where No infringement is allowed!

    Every law passed on gun ‘control’ is unconstitutional and only allows the Criminal to win the war on crime!

    • That is absolutely correct. EVERY anti-gun law IS Unconstitutional. 100% accurate. And if The People weren’t so ignorant and apathetic, NONE of this Bull$hit ( dating from the National Firearms Act of 1934 ) would EVER have gotten this far.

  4. SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED! END OF CONVERSATION! any attempt by congress to INFRINGE “IS TREASON”! and grounds to prosecute and build the gallows!
