Senator Toomey Betrays Gun Owners

Gun Owners of America

See a Shrink, Lose your Guns. The anti-gun “ranters” have spent the last week telling us that Republican Senators can’t filibuster Harry Reid’s gun control bill; that they can’t cut off debate to a bill they haven’t seen yet. “Let the bill come up,” they say. “We need to see the bill” before Senators can vote against cloture to proceed to it.

Well, we’ve seen the Toomey-Manchin-Schumer sell-out, and it’s worse than the Feinstein gun ban, which will reportedly be tied to it and offered simultaneously in a Senate procedure known as an “amendment tree.”  

Toomey and Manchin will claim that their bill only covers “gun show sales” and Internet sales. But if you’ve ever talked about your gun and /or let it be known you’d like to sell or buy a gun on the Internet, this language covers you. If you advertise your gun in the church bulletin and the bulletin is put on the Internet, you’re covered.

The only exemption is for sales that are sold exclusively by word of mouth. The increased number of background checks would likely exacerbate the system breakdowns (inherent to NICS) which have shut down gun shows over and over again. It would mean that Americans who were illegally denied firearms because their names were similar to other people’s would effectively be barred from owning a gun. (We would never tolerate such delays for voting rights or other freedoms that we are guaranteed.)

And for those Republicans who think they’re going to be able to offer their useless amendments, guess what? Reid is reportedly going to use a procedure to block out all amendments (called an “amendment tree”). And there are plenty of Senators standing in line to make sure that the Senate doesn’t give “unanimous consent” to let those Republicans offer their amendments.

So if you live in a rural area, you’re effectively barred from selling or buying a gun – or it at least becomes very, very difficult.

Incidentally, the Toomey-Manchin-Schumer “national registry” language is full of holes. There will be a national gun registry as a result of this sell-out.

But that’s not the worst part. Under an amendment in the bill to HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), you could have your guns taken away because your private shrink thinks you’re “dangerous” and could send your name directly to the FBI Instant Check system.

Did you think it was terrible that 150,000 military veterans had been added into the NICS system because they’d seen a VA shrink about their PTSD? Well guess what? Now it’s going to happen to the rest of the population … by the millions!

And the next step, of course, will be to begin to sue psychiatrists that don’t send every single patient’s name to the Instant Check system, and to make sure that their lives are ruined if they don’t send a patient to NICS and anything goes wrong.

The bottom line: “See a shrink; lose your guns.”

All of this will reportedly be on an amendment tree with the Feinstein gun ban and magazine bans.

Repeal of gun owner protections. In addition, Toomey no doubt unintentionally agreed to repeal one of the most important protections for gun owners that was included in the 1986 McClure-Volkmer Act – the provision that would allow you to take an unloaded, locked-up gun through states like New York without being stopped. Under a new subsection (c), the Toomey-Manchin-Schumer bill would require you to “demonstrate” to the satisfaction of New York police where you were coming from and where you are going to. And, if you don’t do that to their satisfaction, they can arrest you.

Please keep in mind, nothing in this bill would have stopped Newtown dirtbag from killing his mother and taking the firearms that she owned and perpetrating the horrible crimes that he committed.

Nothing is this bill would actually make children safer at schools. There is nothing that will actually keep bad guys from stealing or illegally acquiring guns, but there’s plenty that will threaten our gun rights!

ACTION: Contact your two senators immediately. Tell them the “see a shrink; lose your guns” sellout is even worse than the Feinstein gun ban which will reportedly be on the same amendment tree with it. Distribute this alert far and wide.

  1. Oh, so now they want it boths ways…. Didn’t they do that to “End The Fed/Audit The Fed” bills that Ron Paul has been re-introducing for years?

  2. IF this does happen – you can be sure that the implementation will be much, much bigger and more expensive than you would ever think possible.

    Canadians had a registry (key word had). Canada’s about 10% of the US population, with considerably less gun ownership. Their implementation of a gun registry was killed (repealed) after a $1.3B price tag, and push-back galore. It turned into a money pit, and was far from being finished.

    Don’t get me wrong – I don’t want to see a gun registry happen, but, if it does it will die a similar death. Just consider the OBAMAcare implementation issues that are going on now – it will be much, much worse.

    They know not what they do.

    1. Well IMO they are willing to spend any amount of OUR money to disarm and kill US. So spending OUR money does not seem to be a problem for THEM.

      OUR guns are THEIR biggest problem.

  3. “Reid is reportedly going to use a procedure to block out all amendments (called an “amendment tree”).”

    So now we can’t make any amendments to a bill because they think that bill is perfect because they think they are gods and are getting desperate because they need to get their elitist plan implemented in a hurry without any more interruptions or filibusters???? Just vote on it and that’s it and don’t even give them time to read it until after they pass it??? ARE YOU F**KING KIDDING ME??? This is how our Republic works, according to them??? I DON’T THINK SO!!!! Over my dead body! As JD says, they know time is running out for them and this is just another desperation tactic for them. They know they have to act now.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Reid, the old, senile, control freak, bastard needs to be tried for treason and burned at the stake. He’s becoming just as much of a threat as Hitlery Clinton.

  4. SUE your Doctors. Also Tell your doctor NOTHING, no matter haw bad you feel. Doctors are now “Agents of the State”

    1. Correct.

      The “health care system” long ago left we the people. I have not been to a “doctor” in 30 years and will not go unless half dead someone drags me in without my permission.

      With the net I have been able to research and solve ALL my health problems without drugs and DIRT cheaply. Of course I must eat and live right.

      It may be hard to believe but IMO most people can do the same.

  5. “Where are the BACKGROUND CHECKS on these politicians? Did you read Obama’s book?

  6. @phil

    Unlike Canada (with a more realistic need to evaluate cost/benefits due to real limits on printing FIAT to infinity), I would not bet on the gun-control-nuts giving up on registration due to costs, ineffectiveness, or lack of funds. The current gang under the US mobster-in-chief is willing to run trillion dollar annual deficits. A few billion spent on militarizing DHS and showering local LEOs with toys and black PR is nothing more that petty cash. Those that don’t get with the program get “Arpaio’d” or disappeared.
    Add in the one-sided smoke-screen info-pollution spewing from the MSM and its pretty much assured there will be universal registration required. Compliance, though, will be far less than expected. Considering obamacare compliance is in the dirt, compliance with registration will be near zero.

  7. Sorry, Mrs. OB, sold my pistol to this one old guy a couple years ago. Yeah here’s his name, you can find him about 6 feet under as he passed away last year. Poor fella, never harmed a flea. Keep the obits, use to your advantage.
