Universal background checks
would end father-child gun gifts

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/7/2013 12:28:17 PM

It´s a long tradition in America: A father buys a gun for his son or daughter to practice with at a range and eventually take hunting. It´s one so rich in American life that many states are encouraging it by adding youth-only hunting seasons and urging parents to bring their children to hunter safety courses. But universal background check proposals being considered in Washington and in some states are threatening to end that by criminalizing gun gifts, neighbor-to-neighbor sales or even inheritances where the one receiving the gun doesn´t first pass a background check. "They could very well make

Comments:
The last paragraph is a real shocker. In the 80´s fathers were prosecuted for giving guns to their children without forcing their children to undergo background checks? And we didn´t have a regime like we do now. What a disaster this would be.

This is the thing that people who want "universal background checks" don´t understand, the overwhelming majority of gun sales that occur now without a background check are either already illegal (in which case changes to the law will have no impact) or they are between people who know more about each other than a background check would reveal. And in the vast majority of those latter sales the person making the sale would not even consider it if the person were someone who has much chance of ever being a mass shooter.

In a country that kills its children and denigrates fathers, what difference would this make?

Exactly, #1. Also, if you´re living in a state that doesn´t do background checks (but only police checks when you buy at a gun show or a gun dealer) nor register firearms to begin with, how would anyone know if you made a transaction?? If you already have (unregistered) firearms that you may have inherited, for example, without registration or background checks, how is anyone going to know about these transactions, which have been going on for years?

My husband and a friend plan to do work for a gentleman in exchange for firearms. This older man used to own a gun store and has a house literally full of guns. He cannot afford to pay for the work but is willing to exchange his inventory for work on his house. Providentially, my husband and his friend met this gentleman at a local shooting range. It´s a win win transaction, IMO

Universal background checks means universal registration and then confiscation. No thanks!!

Most people will not comply with this lunacy. Besides being unconstitutional, it intrudes into people´s lives in a way that would cause them to disrespect and foster contempt for the government. Rightfully so.

It is scary that the GOP might cave in and agree to universal background checks, which, as poster 3 implied is a dangerous step toward universal registration. It´s likely that big brother already has the technology to survey residences and locate guns. That is also scary. Who´s to say a corrupt regime like Obama´s won´t use drones to identify gun owners then follow up wih a phone call or knock in your door if you refuse to voluntarily register?

In travels in the former Soviet states, I learned that the police WANTED laws that were impossible to live with, and never really enforced and widely ignored. This gave them the ability to arrest ANYONE for something, since EVERYONE broke some laws. If you were not causing them any problem - like maybe organising a political group - no arrest. As soon as you became an irritation - off to the gulag.

This about universal gun registration AND the ability to put away those that fail to comply, any time they choose to do it.

It will have ZERO effect on crime.

#9, you are exactly right. Big cities have laws against almost everything. Many are not enforced unless you do something to disturb the powers-that-be. This allows the administration/police to control the population.

Any vote for universal background checks is a vote for gun registration. People know this and those who don´t will by the time the election comes around. It will be the kiss of death to all from consevative areas that voted for it.

Compliance with registration has always been low where ever its tried. Look at the data from NY and NJ. Even AU. has admitted compliance was less than 25% to their gun ban. Look what happen in Canada with their long gun registration.

Why lose their job by voting for a bill that the majority will ignore? As been pointed out most states do not have any form of gun registration and the Federal Government is not allowed to compile a list of those who go through the instant check by Law. Universal background check would be meaningless. Use the 4473 form? Heck I sold that gun, it was stolen, lost it in a boating accident, freak outhouse fire ect.

The only reason to pass a universal background check would be to make outlaws out of the majority of gun owners.

Simple. Don´t obey the law. I´ll still give guns to my grandsons when they get old enough. I have a black powder rifle, two shotguns and a hand gun. I´ll be sure they get proper instructions on handling a gun and they get practice. I don´t care what liberals think. Our traditions will continue in spite of any law a liberal thinks he can pass to control us.

The issue is keeping guns out of the hands of criminals, terrorist and the mentally ill. Neither criminals not terrorist will be using the system since it is only pointed at the law abiding.

Without full medical history no background check is going to catch a nut job.

It won´t work, but that such a story gains any credence testifies to the fact that people are more in fear of their government than at any point in my pretty long lifetime. I visited my local Cabela´s yesterday. The ammo shelves are virtually empty except for shotgun shells which are still abundant. Sales of ammo and guns are driven wholly by fear.

Will drones be used within the national boundaries against anyone the govt suspects or doesn´t like, like the NRA leaders?

Register VOTERS--not gun owners.

The democrats have no interest in an orderly, verifiable voter registration system or the validity of the voter.

On the flip side, American patriots have no interest in participating in unconstitutional background checks and gun registration.

It´s not as simple as just not complying. If this gets passed into law, millions will immediately become law-breakers & when the moment comes that requires the use of the weapon, they will be burdened by the knowledge that they may be forfeiting their freedom in order to save their own or loved ones lives. If given a choice between being killed by some crackhead or having the spend years in prison with a bunch of crackheads, that´d be a tough decision for some of us.

Facebook removes my post about

Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/17/2014 9:45:44 PM     Post Reply
Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

   

 



 
Democrat: Voters ´Frustrated

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Reacting to Sunday´s hate crime at two Jewish centers in Kansas City, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center

Report: Obama Considering Bond
Hearings for Detained Illegal Immigrants

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
