Gun Shows Under Attack By Anti Freedom Mayor Bloomberg

Virginia –-( Mayor “I bought my last election” Bloomberg of New York is now pushing hard for Congress to destroy gun shows across the country by getting congress to pass the “Gun Show Loophole Closing Act of 2009”

Just in case you think the threat isn’t serious, here is what is in store for America if the Mayor gets his way in Congress:

  • Details of the sale, such as the type of gun, the SERIAL NUMBER, and any other information the Attorney General may want must be provided for guns sold by private sellers
  • Any person selling a gun, be it just walking around with a gun, or having purchased a table to sell a gun, must be registered with the gun show AT LEAST 30 DAYS BEFORE the show and the gun show must provide PERSONAL INFORMATION about each private seller to the Attorney General
  • Private sellers must show photo ID to the gun show operator and sign a log book with personal information
  • The feds will now have TRUE GUN REGISTRATION information in a database – GOODBYE FREEDOM
  • If you make a mistake in all of this, you can get up to FIVE YEARS in prison. The gun show operator also can be put in prison for paperwork mistakes
  • Gun show operators will have to register with the U.S. Attorney General
  • The Attorney General can make up regulations at will for controlling gun show operators
  • The Attorney General can charge a fee, no limit set, for a gun show operator license
  • Gun shows must get permission from the Attorney General 30 days in advance of any show to be able to have a show
  • All sales must go the the National Instant Check System

A barrage of ads and commercials is starting immediately, attempting to push Congress to pass this legislation!

The full bill can be seen here:

Senators Warner and Webb are coming under pressure to support the gun control measure by the usual suspects. It is CRITICAL that they hear from us NOW!


We need to contact Senators Webb and Warner and urge them NOT to support the destruction of our gun rights and must do so NOW!

To send a message to Mark Warner, click here:

  • For topic, select “Second Amendment Rights”
  • For Subject, enter “There is NO gun show loophole”

To send a message to Jim Webb, click here:

  • For Subject select “Civil Liberty”


Suggested message to both Warner and Webb:

There is NO gun show loophole and I urge you NOT to support any further infringements on my right to buy, sell and own firearms. The bills under consideration, HR2324 and S843, will DESTROY gun shows and will also implement the registration of firearms. History, including here in America, has shown that registration is followed by confiscation – none of which can be tolerated.

Criminals get their guns either by stealing them or through straw purchases – neither of which can be stopped by background checks. A study done for the U.S. Department of Justice (Firearms Use by Offenders) in 2006 found that only 0.7% of guns used in crime come from gun shows.

Make no mistake – these bills are not about reducing crime, but they are about destroying a major part of our right to keep and bear arms.

These bills cannot be “fixed up” to be made acceptable – they can only be defeated.

Please let me know how you are going to vote on these bills.

….Folks, before any of you start freak'n out on this motion to "TLOVER". Let me explain the facts here and now. A "TLOVER" need not be armed, forceful, or threatening. A "TLOVER" needs only to be one thing or idea, and that is, convincing. And this is how it is done. Round up at least one million Freedom saving Americans. Meet at the court square of NYC Mayor Bloomberg city hall. Then, with all our might and all at once, in harmony, say the word…..ENOUGH !

….One word, and one word only folks, "TLOVER".
