Ex-PH2 sends us a link to an article about this, the latest video ad from Nanny Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns crowd;
the video has a dingus with a gun sitting on the tailgate of his truck and his kids playing in the background – because he’s just like us. I always sit on the tailgate of my pickup with my gun, don’t you? Well, anyway he tells us how he’ll fight for his gun rights and then he says that “background checks have nothing to do with taking guns away from anyone”.
But then, Goober, tell me why the new background checks provision of that bill in the Senate requires that there’s a method for keeping records of those background checks and purchases? If it was a about background checks, after a buyer’s eligibility to own guns has been established, why would anyone need an archived copy of the purchase?
Bloomberg and his minions claim that 86 percent of voters support background checks. Sure, put me in that number, too, I support background checks for 100% of gun purchases, but I don’t support keeping a record of those purchases. I also support background checks for every purchase in a back alley or out of the trunk of a car – but nothing in this bill will stop criminals from transferring guns. The only people who will take the time to go somewhere and have a background check performed will be the law abiding citizens. And the only reason for keeping a record of those purchases is to eventually register guns and eventually confiscate guns.
Goober on the tailgate doesn’t understand the bill, and neither do those 86 percent of voters that Mayors Against Illegal Guns touts as the reason the Senate should pass the bill. By the way, the illegal guns that those mayors oppose, they’re your guns, after the Bloomberg crowd makes all guns illegal.
