Overreach by Political Wannabe Overlords Dooms Federal Gun Legislation

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Democrat over-reach dooms gun legislation. But then they never really wanted it anyway.

1,700 hundred pages of new gun laws were passed by the Democrat-controlled house. The laws have three things in common.

  • They are egregious in how far they go in infringing on the 2nd Amendment.
  • They say one thing and do another
  • They are designed never to pass; it is all a ploy.

Democrats NEED gun control as a wedge issue to scare a suburban woman into voting for them in 2020.

This has all happened before.

In 1999 the gun safety bill was put together, it had safety locks required for all gun sales, and the requirement that violent juvenile actions would be included in NICS and prevent the sale of a firearm in the future. It was killed not by the GOP but the democrats. It was killed for one reason only. To keep gun control as a wedge issue for the 2000 elections.

Let me be honest if this bill had passed three of the last five shootings might have been prevented. The inclusion of juvenile criminal activity would have made Parkland shooting harder.

198 DEMOCRATS in the houses voted NO to safety locks on guns, and to allow violent juveniles to own firearms once they turned 18. The bill included new rules for background checks at gun shows, a ban on the importation of large-capacity magazines and a requirement that safety locks be sold with new guns.

Democrats said that this bill had not gone far enough, and they offered amendments to the bill designed to kill it, 198 democrats voted no.

So… when you hear about how important gun control is, remember it was all on the table, all there for the left to have made law. EVERYTHING they say they want was there. They turned it down to keep gun control as an issue for the 2000 election.

H.R.822 – Firearm Risk Protection Act of 2019

It’s the same thing this time; the left moves forward laws that have to be defeated. Let me ask you a few questions about the law Pelosi has passed to the Senate.

You go shooting with your son-in-law, and you hand him your old favorite 586 no dash. He takes the gun and shoots off a ½ dozen rounds and hands the gun back to you. How long should you spend in a federal pen for that illegal firearms transfer under their new laws? Five years? 10? Remember the gun never leaves your sight, but that doesn’t matter now does it.

You will have to turn in your GLOCK 17 and 19. Why? They are both considered “ASSAULT WEAPONS” under the new house rules.

A criminal breaks into your houses and steals a gun. It was in a locked box and met all the legal requirements for gun storage. That criminal kills someone in the commission of a crime. How long should you be jailed for being the owner of a stolen gun? Ten years?

Now the left wants you to buy insurance if you own a gun, but they also sued and fined Chubb and Lockton for offering insurance to gun owners. So the obvious question is how or why would an insurance company offer insurance to gun owners if doing so gets them sued and fined? So to own a gun, you HAVE to have insurance, but any insurance company that offers insurance will be sued out of existence.

It’s all a lie; it just politics as usual. It’s all democrats using our rights to scare voters.

President Trump will not sign any gun control legislation. If fact none will get to his desk. Anything that passes the House will not even get voted on in the Senate. The Dims don’t want to have any new law passed. If that happened they would not have an issue to scare suburb mothers.

The inclusion of juvenile criminal activity would have made Parkland shooting harder. not quite. The perpetrator of that massacre had committed at least FOUR felony level crimes after he turned 18, a legal adult and at that time old enough to buy long guns. The PROBLEM came when Broward COunty officials, including the Parkland School District, and Sheriff Israel’s functionaries, decided NOT to charge him with any of these FOUR felony events.. preferring that the school district be able to collect a federal reward of $Mn54 for recuding their ARREST rate of school age individuals, the whiles doing NOTHING to… Read more »

From what I found in my research regarding Parkland, This went all the way to the top. Obama and Holder, two men of color in the highest positions of government were distressed over ” more black youths in prison than college”. They devised a trial program to divert and dismiss charges against teenage criminals hoping to reverse that trend, They hoped this would become a national standard. This pretty much depended on the co-operation of everyone in a position of authority from the president all the way down to the teachers. Basically they seemed to believe that if they rewarded… Read more »

@Consider, It seems like every theory, of every program, that the libtards design works to ensure that the child will be, forever, denied, a normal adulthood.

You are absolutely correct Tionico. Israel and Obama DOE policies allowed the Parkland shooter to get a firearm and kill those people. The school wanting to shut down the school to jail pipeline and rampant political correctness killed those people.

Don, When you mention “the inclusion of juvenile criminal activity” , you should ask ,why it was ever excluded in the first place ? You look old enough to step into the wayback machine and be reminded that it was a different America when the lawmakers decided to take it easy on the kids. There was this thing called the “family unit”. Being on welfare was something to be ashamed of. Unwed mothers and no father in the home were not seen as “profitable” until “The War on Poverty” made it acceptable. Individuals where held responsible for their actions not… Read more »

ANY restrictions, conditions or limitations on the 2nd Amendment is unconstitutional. There is no “but”, “only if”, “however” or any other wording in the 2nd Amendment that permits or allows it to be altered or qualified. “Shall not be infringed” is the operating segment and it’s not open to re-interpretation or change.

Perhaps, but this is why the REPUBLICANS are more of a danger to our 2A Rights, Due Process, Bill Of Rights, and Freedom of speech. They have been back stabbers to gun owners for decades. Look at what Mike Dewine in Ohio is proposing and he’s a so called REPUBLICAN. Graham and Rubio writing their own ERPO’s . Trump’s ATF Unconstitutionally banned Bump stocks, AA-12 shotguns, supports Universal Background Checks, raising the age to 21 for ALL gun sales, Supports Red Flag laws, wants to stop 3-D printing for homemade Firearms and supports the TAPS Act. Trump is in trouble… Read more »

Don here assumes (assumption being the mother of all F-ups) that the Dems only use gun control as a driver to scare people into voting for them. WRONG!!!! Demorats – as exposed by Beta O’Dork – REALLY DO WANT TO TAKE AWAY EVERYONE’S GUNS, so only the “trusted commissars” of the commiecrat elites have the means to separate every part of you from every other part of you. GUN CONFISCATION IS THEIR GOAL IN ORDER TO PREVENT AN ANTI-COMMUNIST COUNTER-REVOLUTION!! And once the guns are confiscated, then they can have their PURGE and eliminate all the hardcore patriots, capitalists, and… Read more »

In order to get the communist America the democrats demand, Americans must be disarmed.
Democrats are not afraid of guns. They are communists and want guns in the hands of their communist ‘antifa’ terrorists to put down any silly notions of freedom and a Constitution.

CANVASS for Republican votes.
HAND OUT flyers showing how the anti-American democrats support communism.
DEMAND your friends vote.
EXPECT massive voter fraud in 2020.

“socialism” is the lie the anti-American democrats use to actually instill communism.
At 2016 DNC convention the democrats claimed the Communist Party USA, WAS the democratic party.
