Rhino Peter King Joins Dems to Give Eric Holder Final Say on Gun Buys

Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)- On Wednesday, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) joined Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) to introduce a bill giving Attorney General Eric Holder final say on who does or doesn’t pass National Instant Criminal Background Checks (NICS) for gun purchases.

The twelve other Democrats co-sponsoring the Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorist Act of 2015 include “Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), Dick Durbin (D-Ill), Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Barbara Boxer (D-CA)… [and] Christ Murphy (D-CT),” among others.

According to San Diego Jewish World, the act is meant to stop a “known or suspected terrorist from buying firearms or explosives.” Yet as Feinstein, one of the bill’s central sponsors explained, the terrorists who would be barred from buying firearms are also barred from traveling to the United States in the first place — so why give the AG new powers over gun sales for people who are banned from even entering the USA?

Here’s how Feinstein put it:

The Kouachi brothers, responsible for the attacks in Paris, were on U.S. terrorist watch lists, including the no-fly list. However, if the brother had instead been in the United States, they would have been able to legally purchase weapons.

Of course, the brothers were not present in the United States — and of course, they were banned from boarding a plan to get here.

Nonetheless, the Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorist Act of 2015 would give the AG new powers, allowing him to “deny the purchase or transfer of a firearm or explosive to a known or suspected terrorist if the perspective recipient may use the firearm or explosive in connection with terrorism.”

There are questions regarding what the measure for ascertaining a “suspected terrorist” for the purposes of banning gun sales will be, but none regarding the fact that the bill gives AG Holder the final say on who gets a gun and that can not be good for anyone.

The Republican Party must be ABOLISHED. The Republican Party is Worthless, Toothless, Spineless, and Honorless! They no longer represent the people only there masters…multinational corporations, international bankers, and the U.S. Tax Payer money going to Israel is funneled back through AIPAC that buys off our government representatives.

Notice how in the above photo of Peter King, his eyes are the same as the mug shots of Jared Loughner and James Holmes? Creepy. Nothing wrong with that guy…

the real aim here is to stop us from protecting our-selves against them. The feds cant enforce any law against our rights without the help of state governments, the people must insist that the Governor of their State make a stand, The right of the people to keep and bear arms, says nothing at all about conditions.

Unless you think Rep King actually looks like a rhino, the correct term for his actions is RINO. Get with the program if you want to blog politics.

King is one of the worst enemies of individual liberty. He would have been right at home
in any brutal totalitarian regime.

I don’t agree with the proposed legislation, but the author seems hung up on the whole no-fly thing. There are ways to enter this country other than by airplane.

They say that…”The eys are the window to the soul.” If so, this “thing”is evil. Same for Feinswine.

Thanks for making us aware of all proposed legislation, but this has a snowball’s chance in hell of passing. It won’t even be taken up in the House.

When necessary to utter or write this congresscritter’s name, I find it helpful to insert the adjective “Odious” in front of it.

yeah, that makes sense. let’s give unconstitutional powers to the clown who ran thousands of weapons to Mexican drug cartels. let’s just ignore that obummer had to take executive privilege to stop rep. issa from finding out why they sold those guns to murderers, which wound up getting hundreds of innocent Mexicans and border guard Brian Terry killed. these u.s. guns immediately started showing up (left behind) at murder scenes all over mexico. imagine that. btw, the doj finally turned over the heavily redacted files congress held holder in contempt for refusing to release. they released some of them around… Read more »
