The Aurora shooting was a clear failure of the National Instant Check System (NICS). A failure that should not have happened – and yet, what do we get from the usual suspects?
There are plenty of other ways to mass kill. As long as those who do evil walk among us, they will find a way.
The NSSF today commended President Donald Trump and Congress for signing into law the omnibus legislation containing Fix NICS and Stop School Violence provisions.
What Cox is doing is reining Trump back in, getting him to “walk back” preemptive surrender-signaling and stick to NRA talking points.
If the object is to protect Americans from those who wish to do them harm, the “solution” will never be in a piece of paper with a disarmament order.
Despite the win for firearm owners during the last national election, gun controls are now being endorsed and approved from within the firearms community.
The statute says: ‘‘The term ‘handgun’ includes any magazine for use in a handgun and any ammunition loaded into the handgun or its magazine.”
Unlike restrictions on semi-automatic rifles or magazine capacity, Fix NICS is not a “gun control” measure.

Fix NICS was on greased rails in Washington D.C., headed for certain passage. Now that bill appears dead, and I can’t say I’m sorry to see it die.
We expect such overblown, gun-grab agenda-advancing hysteria from USA Today.
I received a call from one of Virginia’s Representatives letting me know that Republican leadership has combined H.R. 38 with H.R. 4434 (which is the “Fix NICS Act”).
Once you give these things up without a fight, what will be next? Because there will be a “next.”
Sheriff report shows NICS checks are superior to our archaic permit system at keeping criminals from getting guns. . .
With almost all those denied purchases of guns being false positives, adding more names to the systems will primarily result in more false positives…
Our FixNICS effort is gaining ground. Several state legislatures have passed measures to improve the reporting of all records on prohibited persons, including adjudicated mental health records to NICS…
Let’s stop demonizing guns and end the shootings by incarcerating the criminals and healing the sick, for much work needs to be done in the mental health arena…
