Congressman Gives The Lowdown On Democrat’s Gun Control Bills

You may have heard the rumors that Democrats are starting to push gun control on a Federal level more aggressively than they may have ever in the past century. Sadly, those rumors are true.

And you may be concerned about what you think could be coming down the pike. Fortunately, you can find that information with a little digging. Or you can get a Republican Congressman from North Carolina to provide that information to you, which, fortunately for you, he did. Ted Budd writes,

This week, the House passed two bills that would undermine this right. The first was H.R. 8. It was sold as “universal background checks.” It would impose harsh penalties like six-figure fines and jail time for the simple act of handing a firearm to another person, even for temporary use. The exemptions under H.R. 8 are woefully inadequate to protect the rights of law-abiding gun owners. For example, if you loan your firearm to a victim of domestic violence because their abuser is being released from jail; or if a suicidal friend asks you to take possession of their firearm; or if you loan your cousin your gun after a series of burglaries in the neighborhood. These new transfer penalties would turn law-abiding Americans into criminals. 

House Democrats also passed H.R. 1446. This bill claims to close the so-called “Charleston Loophole,” by making retail gun stores wait 10 business days before completing a transfer instead of the current three day standard. The bill would also change existing law to mandate a may-issue transfer system for firearms. That would empower the FBI to indefinitely delay a purchase—even after the increased 10 day window has expired without a failed background check.

This delay adds additional levels of bureaucracy on citizens before they exercise their constitutional right to own firearms. Under current law, the government has the burden of proof to stop you from buying a firearm. Increasing the waiting period to 10 days—while giving the FBI veto power without due process—would reverse this standard. Imagine asking for federal permission before you exercised your right of free speech, free expression, or religious activity. That would be unacceptable and un-American.

Budd goes on to say that neither of these horrible pieces of legislation would have prevented mass shootings because, at least in the cases of the recent ones, mass shooters either passed background checks to get their guns or they stole the firearms in the first place. I suppose that stealing guns is the ultimate gun control loophole, isn’t it?

It’s beyond reprehensible that Democrats are trying to ram this down the throats of the American people. In fact, because it would put more people in danger if passed, this legislation is downright criminal.

  1. OH! I see, in one of these pieces of shit legislation that the democraps have enlisted their favorite pimps the Obamy Clinton FBI fools. You know the guys who killed a mother and wonder a baby on Ruby ridge or when they Murdered that fellow who protested at the Bundy ranch and the little FEBIES slaughter a number of horrible farting cows from a helicopters for fun and games.
    Actually the FBI and the CIA should have their guns under lock and key they are dangerous with them falling out of their pants when they dancing.
    And don’t forget all those so powerful imposing little girls walking around with flack jackets “I AM FBI, and simi auto assault rifles, while men storm an unarmed mans home at 3am no doubt unloaded. Can anyone say Mr Stone?????

  2. Executive Orders are not Laws. Many sheriffs and states will refuse to honor them as they violate the US Constitution 2nd Amendment. Biden can set an example by taking away all guns from the Secret Service Agents that protect him. If not, it shows what a big brain scrambled phony he is.

  3. Scientific studies prove that the gun controls that make the most sense are the ones that reduce the oppressive gun laws we already have. Gun violence by people who legally own guns is miniscule compared to the number of gun violence acts committed by illegal guns. It is simple, the more honest citizens that legally own guns the less crime there is. This is proved by every study ever completed. And the fewer the number of legally armed citizens there are the more criminals are afraid to commit crimes. Unconstitutional laws that infringe on the right to bare arms only embolden the criminals that don’t follow law anyway. Making it harder and more costly to bare arms hurts people in the lower economic strata… the place most hit by illegal violence by people who get guns regardless of law. Hey Traitors Joe, Harris, Pelosi and Schummer… is it possible that any of you actually graduated High School and still don’t know the meaning of “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”.

  4. After today’s events, SLEEPY’S going to have to add ASSAULT CARS to this bill. He will also need to expand BACKGROUND CHECKS to purchase one, and to get a driver’s license you will have to get fingerprinted, photographed, and wait at least 9 months for approval. We will also be able to sue the Auto Companies into bankruptcy for selling a weapon of war, especially when thousands, and thousands die every year because of their rolling bullets.

  5. And Delaware just took another step down the dark path of more Gun Control! Democrat controlled legislatures are the worst!!!

  6. That shit for brains Biden is going to keep fuckin around until he starts a civil war right here, he’s a fuckin communist committing treason and should be run out of the country and or put In prison
