Not even for a second. That's the advise of Instapundit, when he links to PJMedia, who reports that gun-control advocates are quietly building support for another bill.
Thompson said the bill protects rights under the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution by providing an exemption on background checks for firearm transfers between family and friends.That doesn't sound bad at all, does it? Until you realize who's pushing the bill. And we've been lied to by these bozos before.
“You won’t have to get a background check when you inherit the family rifle, borrow a friend’s shotgun for a hunting trip or purchase a gun from a buddy or neighbor,” Thompson said.
It further bans the creation of a federal registry and makes the misuse of records a felony, punishable by up to 15 years in prison. It allows active duty military to buy firearms in their home states and the state in which they are stationed, authorizes the use of a state concealed carry permit in lieu of a background check to purchase a firearm and allows interstate handgun sales from licensed dealers.
“So we’re going to pass this law,” Schumer said. “We are going to finish the job and pass background checks and then move on and do other things we have to do to get guns off the streets and stop gun violence.”Yeah, right, Chuck. Tell me just exactly again how you intend to get guns off the street?
