House Democrats are leading an effort to vote in the dead of the night to take away the Second Amendment rights of millions of Americans.
According to Breitbart, Democrats are planning to advance legislation that would criminalize private gun sales between owners.
The disturbing and vastly overreaching legislation is expected to be put to a floor vote in the House this week — and there’s hardly any media attention on this issue.
Most Americans have no idea about this measure and what the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives is about to vote on.
Democrats introduced H.R. 8, which is in honor of the January 2011 attack on Gabby Giffords, where she was shot during a campaign event.
Here’s more from the Breitbart report:
H.R. 8 would outlaw the private gun sales Americans have enjoyed since December 15, 1791, the date on which the Second Amendment was ratified. This would criminalize a neighbor who sold a gun to lifelong neighbor without first getting government permission via a background check. It would also criminalize a friend for selling a gun to lifelong friend without government permission.
Ironically, the bill would have done nothing to stop the attack on Gabby Giffords because her attacker did not buy his gun privately. Rather, he passed a background check to acquire the gun retail.
Moreover, H.R. 8 would have done nothing to stop nearly every mass shooter to date in the 21st century. This is because nearly every mass shooter acquired his guns via background checks, rather than private gun sales. The exceptions are those who stole their guns.
Yet Democrats are rushing this legislation to the House floor for a vote. Reuters reports that the House Judiciary Panel “will mark up the bill…on February 13 and send it to the House floor for a vote.”
One of the main talking points in H.R. 8 is creating a “national government registry.”
For starters, there is no government registry.
Gun owners do not “register” with the federal government, they are required to pass a background check in the state in which they are in prior to being able to legally purchase a firearm.
It’s not handled by the federal government because states have different laws in place regarding waiting periods, “red flag” laws, and other measures citizens must go through before being able to legally buy a gun.
After cutting through many of the liberal talking points, it is clear that House Democrats are going to do everything imaginable to erode as much of the Second Amendment as possible.
This is why many don’t take these anti-gun movements seriously, because many liberals don’t want solutions, they want to ban all guns and erode as much of the Second Amendment as possible.
While the bill may pass in the House, it’s highly unlikely that it would ever pass in the Republican-controlled Senate.
