How Background Checks Are Being Used To Target Gun Owners

Anti-gunners love to tell people that they don’t want to take away anyone’s rights, but the truth is that this just isn’t the case.

Maybe you’ll come across some honest anti-gunner (because they haven’t thought the issue through) who will tell you that they want to repeal the Second Amendment, but that’s the only thing that they want to take away from you. The problem with this statement is that gun control violates much more than just the Second Amendment. For example, gun control is routinely used to violate the Fourth Amendment rights of U.S. citizens.

How, you might ask? By using information gathered through gun control efforts to target gun owners for special scrutiny. In other words, this is a violation of privacy and of the right to be free from unreasonable search and seizure. And if you don’t believe me, Kristina Bravo gives details showing how that is happening right now:

Ammunition background checks led to the recent seizure of dozens of weapons across the state, including in Southern California, from individuals deemed unfit to posses them, authorities announced Tuesday.

Operations in April and May across 12 jurisdictions resulted in the confiscation of 51 firearms, including four assault weapons and two untraceable “ghost guns”; 123 magazines, including 33 large-capacity magazines; 28,518 rounds of ammunition; and 120 grams of methamphetamine and heroin, according to the California Attorney General’s Office.

Authorities executed search warrants after the offenders tried to purchase ammunition but were denied through ammunition background checks, which currently remain in effect after a federal judge’s decision to block them in April and rule in favor of the California Rifle & Pistol Association. The judge said the checks violate Californians’ Second Amendment rights.

Attorney General Xavier Beccera secured a stay of the preliminary injunction while the case is on appeal, according to his office. The ammunition background checks became law after Californians voted for Proposition 63 in 2016, making California the first and only state to approve such background checks, officials said.

Individuals banned from purchasing ammunition in the Armed and Prohibited Persons System database include people with felony or violent misdemeanor convictions, those who have been placed under a restraining order, including in cases that involve domestic violence, and those who have been diagnosed with serious mental illness.

Now, before you say, “well, these felons aren’t legally allowed to own guns,” pause for a moment and think about something: Once a government makes disagreeing with their politics on any issue illegal, how soon will they come for you and your guns if you have complied with their registration demands?

I’m not suggesting that you break the law by illegally obtaining guns. I’m saying that you need to either get the laws in your area changed to be gun friendly or you need to move someplace where the government isn’t full of anti-gun idiots because some anti-gunners already advocate taking guns from Trump supporters, for example, because they say those people “must be insane to vote for Trump.” I’m not kidding.

It won’t be long before you and your beliefs are next, and it will be illegal for you to keep your guns. Don’t let it get to that point.

  1. Yeah and how many people drive without a license, insurance, inspection or registration let alone under the influence of something let alone DWD…?

    30,000+ are killed in vehicle crashes a year + 70,000+ from drug overdoses = 100,000 Americans killed by negligence added to the 250,00+ killed by medical error at a total of over a 1/3 OF A MILLION DEAD AMERICANS a year…!

    Compared to 300 maybe …killed by rifles and most of them are by gang bangers in Democ-rat run cities with super strict illegal “gun laws”…!

    HOW ABOUT YOU IDIOTS GET A LIFE FOR BEING MORONS…!

  2. Almost impossible to fix ignorance. Those people are happy thinking what they are thinking and Do Not want to be bothered with the truth facts matter.

  3. I think you have missed another amendment that would be in danger. If the Dimms manage to break the Constitution the !st amendment would fall. NO FREE SPEECH!

  4. As has been said before, every one of these liberal/socialists is a “USEFUL IDIOT.” They are so brain dead, that anything another socialist tells them, or the fake news they see or hear, they believe it is totally correct. Anything else, especially the TRUTH is RACIST. I can say this because I have been accused of being a racist on a subject not having anything to do with any people or any ethnicity, or origin, etc. Truth to a democrat is worse than kryptonite to Superman.

  5. I believe the following is as important now as it was when first said:

    Paster Martin Niemoller made the following statement at the time of his arrest by the Gestapo in 1937:

    “In Germany, they came first for the communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then, they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then, they came for the Catholics, I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Then, they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.”

    Speak up now, or there will be no one left to speak up!
