House Democrats Plan Vote to Criminalize Private Gun Sales This Week

http://www.rumormillnews.com/cgi-bin/for...ead=117103

On January 8, Breitbart News reported that House Democrats introduced the legislation, dubbed H.R. 8, in honor of the eighth anniversary of the January 8, 2011, attack on Gabby Giffords.

Giffords stood with the Democrats as they introduced their gun control:

H.R. 8 would outlaw the private gun sales Americans have enjoyed since December 15, 1791, the date on which the Second Amendment was ratified. This would criminalize a neighbor who sold a gun to lifelong neighbor without first getting government permission via a background check. It would also criminalize a friend for selling a gun to lifelong friend without government permission.

Ironically, the bill would have done nothing to stop the attack on Gabby Giffords because her attacker did not buy his gun privately. Rather, he passed a background check to acquire the gun retail.

Moreover, H.R. 8 would have done nothing to stop nearly every mass shooter to date in the 21st century. This is because nearly every mass shooter acquired his guns via background checks, rather than private gun sales. The exceptions are those who stole their guns.

Yet Democrats are rushing this legislation to the House floor for a vote. Reuters reports that the House Judiciary Panel “will mark up the bill…on February 13 and send it to the House floor for a vote.”

It would criminalize gifts to and from family members. Inheriting your grandfather's guns would become very complicated.

They don’t want to stop mass shootings, they just want more control thru disarmament!

So if, just if, they could pass some b.s. like this, what would be the penalty and how do you enforce it? 1dunno1

Why would you want a rusty old gun, anyway? Law would benefit the gun stores.

Won't pass Senate. At least I like to believe that.

Well, my dad recently gave me the muzzleloader we gave my granddad when I was a kid. I say we as I pitched in lawn mowing money I had saved up. All 15 dollars of it. So there is one reason. Another is that I inherited the first gun I ever shot. Did much quail hunting and rabbit hunting with it as a younger feller. Both may or may not be rusty old pieces of junk. Still have sentimental value.

Probably will pass the House. Will die in the Senate.

This game is going to be like the Repubs passing to repeal
ObamaNoCare some 30x while they were in 'control' of the
House. Waste of time to appeal to their little toadies for fund
raising purposes. "Look at how much we are doing for you.
Spend us mo' money so we can fight Orange Man Bad!"

Even if it passed the Senate, it won't pass with a 60 vote margin to avoid Presidential Veto...this bill is dead. Nothing but Democrat base pandering at this point and attempt to see which Dems and Republicans are pro-gun so the anti-gun crowd can begin tailoring their opposition campaigns...
