House Democrats Plan Vote to Criminalize Private Gun Sales This Week

Breitbart – by AWR Hawkins

House Democrats plan to move legislation criminalizing private gun sales out of committee and get it to the floor for a vote this week.

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.”

    Who in America wants this?? This is so bad it would not even fly in Canada –

    A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    Every day they test us a little more. A little more irritation, a little more stabbing.

    But many will pass the test. It ain’t gonna be pretty.

    I just wish I was immune to all the irritation and stabbing. I am not.

      Nothing more than wishful thinking on their part with this one, galen.

      They may have a measure of control over weapons sold through dealers, but how the hell could they possibly know or stop any individual from selling to another. They have ZERO control (or authority, as we all well know), over those situations, so it’s really a moot point.

      Merely more treason to add to the LONG list.

      Time to go get ‘medicated’… dispensary stop first. 😉
