    Five Republicans Join Democrat Push to Criminalize Private Gun Sales

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2...ate-gun-sales/

    The five are Reps. Peter King (R-NY), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), Fred Upton (R-Mich.), Chris Smith (R-NJ), and Brian Mast (R-FL).

    King is a sponsor of the bill to criminalize private gun sales, standing with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA) for more gun control. And Rep. Mast is continuing to show a penchant for gun control he first displayed after the Parkland school shooting, when he called for President Trump to enact a national ban on the sale of AR-15 rifles.
    The push to criminalize private gun sales is being presented as a universal background check requirement. Such checks would require Americans to get government permission to sell a gun to a neighbor, a life-long friend, or a co-worker.

    NPR reports that Rep. King said, “When background checks are used, they keep guns out of the hands of people we all agree shouldn’t have guns.”

    King did not mention that Gabby Giffords’ attacker passed a background check for his gun, as did the November October 1, 2017, Las Vegas gunman, the June 12, 2016, Orlando Pulse gunman, the October 1, 2015, Umpqua Community College gunman, the May 23, 2014, Santa Barbara gunman, the July 20, 2012, Aurora movie theater gunman, and the November 5, 2009, Ft. Hood gunman, to name a few.
    Just a step towards removing all guns from the population.

    One can only hope more of the so-called Republicans do not vote for this or any other gun control bill. I do not trust a single person in Congress.

    Merge this with the Feinstein bill to remove 205 weapons, and you know what you got?

    Ans: A law.

    An UNCONSTITUTIONAL law.

    Upton has been in for years, since 1987. I remember when he actually was rather conservative. I also remember when Lindsay Graham was expected to be a conservative.

    Come on Millwright! They’re just common sense proposals to keep guns out of the wrong hands.

    The evil is running strong lately. Common sense tells me so.

    Friend, you cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. And what one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government can't give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody.

    God grant it be so. It would be nice to see evil lose for once.

    5 Reps, so what. Dems already have the majority and can pass whatever they want in the House without those five. It's the Senate that matters. 5 flip in the Senate and we are screwed.

    I have been told as much just from twitter banter...
    The dems say they do not want confiscation, but its a damn lie, as proven when one pisses them off.
    Looking back, the lion was a bad idea. That's why Dr. Shockla is gonna hook us up with a monkey. I'm gonna teach it taekwondo.

    Yeah, karate monkey, yeah, that's probably safer.

    To them, common sense = Commie Sense. It's one of their word phrases that they all parrot.
