If the newest gun confiscation plan of the Democrats goes through, you will not legally be allowed to sell one of your guns to your brother or your best friend from kindergarten. It is even unlikely that you could legally inherit guns, since the private transfer would now be illegal.
But, not to worry, there isn’t a snowball’s chance in hell that the president will sign the bill. But, if a Democrat wins in 2020, it will be a whole new ballgame. And this is only the first step and small compared to the steps to follow.
The only way to enforce the low would be with a government data base, listing every gun you own.
House Democrats succeeded Wednesday in passing legislation to criminalize private gun sales.
Yahoo News reports that the legislation passed by a vote of 240-190, with eight Republican Congressional members voting with the Democrats. One of those eight Republicans, Rep. Peter King (R-NY), actually co-sponsored the bill.
On Monday Breitbart News reported that the Democrats planned a floor vote on the legislation to criminalize private gun sales this week. They used a universal background check bill to accomplish the criminalization, pushing to make it illegal for a neighbor to sell a gun to a lifelong neighbor or someone to sell a gun to a friend they have known since childhood.
Breitbart News also reported that universal background checks are only the first step, as a gun registry will be necessary to make the checks enforceable.
.@Jim_Jordan is back to reiterate how dangerous #HR8 and #HR1112 really are. “Universal” background checks lead to a national registry, which leads to confiscation – plain and simple. We must fight back and contact our lawmakers. → https://t.co/WOdftwRpeN #2A pic.twitter.com/g0dLKKIStG
