Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2019, Restricts Gun Rights & Freedom: Take Action

The goal should be to reduce crime. Burdening law-abiding citizens doesn’t stop armed criminals. We need crime-control, not more ‘gun-control’!

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, admits that so-called “gun control” and crime control are different things, with different goals. Crime control focuses on criminals, putting them in prison, and develops reforms, cleans out neighborhoods and makes society safer—a key role of government.

So-called “gun control” in contrast controls the public with paperwork, record keeping, delays, bureaucracy, and big brother’s nose where it doesn’t belong. Many people see and understand this. Too many, including politicians pandering to voters do not recognize this fact.

Democrats’ actions show disdain for the right to self-defense, which gets ignored in proposals for so-called “gun control,” and at the expense of crime-reduction efforts.

Enacted right after the Democrats’ stunning affront to the Constitution in H.R.8, where innocently handing a gun to a friend would become a felony (a crimeless act), House Bill 1112, passed in the House on 2/28/19, adds lengthy delays to legally shopping at retail, to cover for law-enforcement shortcomings. JPFO denounced this attempt to further burden innocent citizens without focusing instead on armed criminals who cause mayhem and chaos on our streets. Even if identified, criminals in the new plan go free. The bad law helped move JPFO’s symbolic Gun Confiscation Clock ahead by two minutes, to just 12 minutes to midnight.

House Bill 1112 now moves on to the Republican-controlled Senate. Please contact your Senators and tell them to vote NO for the Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2019.

“The entire new outcry and push for more “gun control” laws came from children at Parkland high school who want to stop school massacres, a truly noble cause,” said Alan Gottlieb, the CEO of JPFO. “But this bill has nothing to do with that, it literally avoids the reason the children are so upset—how do Democrats get away with such a bait and switch?” he asked.

“Legislators promise they will work to end crime and violence, and then press ahead to limit the public’s rights and ability to defend itself. It borders on insanity.”

JPFO is calling for gun education and marksmanship training in schools, where the subject is tightly censored.

Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, https://www.jpfo.org is America’s most aggressive civil-rights organization, dedicated to destroying the notion of “gun control” as any kind of credible public-policy position. So-called “gun control” does not control guns and doesn’t control criminal behavior. What it does do is disarm the innocent, leaving them helpless in the face of criminals, tyrannical governments and genocide. History repeatedly proves this fact. Founded in 1989 by Aaron Zelman as a response to the Holocaust, JPFO speaks with the moral authority and tenacious commitment of survivors of persecution and knows that surrendering your personal and family safety to government protection courts disaster. “You don’t have to be Jewish to fight by our side, you just have to love liberty.” www.jpfo.org

These law makers should be held responsible for there laws they pass, so when the laws that they pass fail it is those the one that should be responsible because NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAWS AND THE AMENDMENTS . THINK ABOUT DEMOCRATS IT WILL COME TO PASS THAT YOU WILL AND SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE.

The problem with any gun control measure is that that none of the politicians really care. It’s a wedge issue that piles on money and votes. Both “parties” for and against should focus on stopping illegal weapons purchases and stop making it harder for a regular person to walk in, have a check done, pay the money and leave. Spend money towards helping with background checks so there isn’t such a backlog. Work together across state lines to expand reciprocity. Properly train the law enforcement to stop bad guys from getting guns buy working with gun sellers. Between 1998 and… Read more »


yu seem to advocate a LOT of restrictions fora “gun guy”. WHY do you promote gun registry? More background checks? Why not advocate for things like having my Mother May I Card (to carry my handgun concealed), which includs background checks every five years that are FAR more through and intrusive and comprehensive than NICS) be my “Mother May I Buy Another Gun” card? If you have a problem with the idea of not getting a new check for every new purchase, rest assured that EVERY issuer of those handgun Mother May I Cards watches the records, and upon word… Read more »

Shut down all the gun shops, this is a major
Request. We need gun shops, shut down.
Stop given gun out.


You really should pull your head out. You’re showing extreme stupidity.


You have the grammatical skills of a first grader!


Just wondering, did your parents have any kids that lived?
Because you are not one of them.


Gun shops sell more than firearms – they sell non lethal products, they sell accessories, yes even apparel.

Your anti commerce, anti small business approach is telling!

They’re giving guns out? Where do I go to get some. They’re like potato chips. %-)

I stopped worrying when I saw the data on New York, Connecticut, Washington (state) and Australia. Owners aren’t about to surrender their only effective means of self defense, especially to a pack of socialists motivated by wealth and power. Everywhere oppressive gun controls have been enacted, only about 20 percent of the owners have complied. I too would be among the 80 percent except when I went to an isolated part of a big lake to test my equipment, a big wave capsized my boat and I lost everything, firearms, ammo, optics, accessories — everything. I kept my license though.

Write RINO McConnell and demand he not bring this corrupt bill to the floor.
