No matter what the CommiocRats pass in the House it will never make it out of the Senate and on the outside chance it did pass the Senate it will be vetoed.
The incoming Democrat House majority is readying legislation to criminalize private gun sales.
Ironically, the push comes nearly 227 years to the day after private gun ownership was hedged in by the Founding Fathers via the Second Amendment, which was ratified on December 15, 1791.
Politico reports that Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA) is spearheading the current gun control push through “universal background” legislation. Such checks criminalize private gun sales, making it illegal for a neighbor to sell a firearm to his neighbor, a friend to his lifelong friend, and even a father to his son.
Under the Democrats’ plan, a background system like that in California would require a gun seller to seek government permission for any sale or transfer of a firearm. Such a system was put in place in California in the early 1990s and has failed to prevent some of our nation’s most heinous mass public attacks.
Breitbart News’s Joel Pollack observed:
Note that @Politico assumes whatever legislation Democrats propose to control guns will also curb “gun violence.” The reason #2A advocates have objected to past efforts is that there is no cause-and-effect. https://politi.co/2QBn9Mf cc: @BresPolitico, @heatherscope, @lbarronlopez
House Dems eye quick action on guns in new Congress
Advocates of curbing gun violence believe the political landscape has shifted decisively in their favor.
Nevertheless, Thompson expects to push his gun control bill within “the first 100 days” of the new Congress.
Incoming House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) has already assured his colleagues that he will move the bill “very quickly” once it is introduced.
The criminalization of private gun sales would not have stopped a single 21st century mass shooting, as nearly every mass shooter bought his firearms at retail via a background check. The exceptions to this norm are the two or three mass shooters who stole their guns.
