Democrats Introduce Bill Expanding
Background Checks on Gun Sales

Wall Street Journal, by Kristina Peterson

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/9/2019 8:10:50 AM

Democrats’ long-pledged push to tighten the country’s gun laws will take center stage when lawmakers introduce legislation Tuesday aimed at expanding background checks on gun sales. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), Rep. Mike Thompson (D., Calif.), who leads a task force focused on reducing gun violence, and former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D., Ariz.) will officially unveil the legislation expanding background checks to more commercial sales and private transfers, with the goal of flagging people with criminal or mental-health histories that disqualify them from gun ownership.

That didn´t take long.

Like other useless bills to follow this will die at the Senate´s doorstep. PDT won´t have to bother.

They want more information on purchasers that correlates to using the firearm for violence, and then using that data to restrict sales to people with a higher percentage risk factor. I see...
So are they adding “Race” to the application form?

Anything to take the pressure off Democrats about the whole illegal crime problem and immigration mess.

Nope. Not buying.

Those conditions already disqualify an honest person from purchasing a weapon. If a crook wants to buy a weapon he can find anybody on the street who will sell him one because both parties have no problem breaking the law.

The democrats have one goal, to define all conservatives as "crazy" and that´s their expansion.

Dims, you missed the mark once again. You should have introduced a bill to find out what is behind the mental health crisis in America. I did a brief study you can consider. The results of my study indicate that you are behind the crisis which has resulted in mass TDS.

Anyone remember in Obamacare a doctor could ask if you owned or had a gun in your house. The doctor could then diagnose you as mentally unstable, like being a veteran with PTS disorder. This put you at risk of being a felon if you lie on the form and then you become a criminal trying to legally purchase a firearm.
The Marxist think they are clever and McConnell in the Senate better shelf this bill unless a gun tragedy happens like a liberal Sanders voter shooting up a bunch of Republicans playing baseball but switch the party affiliation and it sails through.

They might have done better to enforce reporting of criminals, the mentally unstable, military court findings, etc. for people, especially since many recent attackers should have been on the list and kept from purchasing. The list is only as good as the effort to fill it in.

I think the key words, and the thing they are trying to slip in one way or another, are ´private sale.´ Right now there is no requirement for me to get a background check if I buy a gun from another private individual who is not in the business of selling firearms. That makes those firearms hard to pinpoint when the day of confiscation comes. The dems want to know where EVERY firearm in the U.S. is so that they can eventually take them.

Anyone want to advise how this, or any gun law, prevented the felon on probation, from having a gun that killed 3 young black men at the Torrance, CA bowling alley the other day?

Nancy? Mike Thompson? You´re both in California, how did this person get a gun?

I don´t mind background checks, but if you don´t have people, like the person in Parkland School, who wasn´t being input into the system about his behavior, due to Obama rule, then how will that catch people who shouldn´t be able to buy a gun legally?

#10 I appreciate you bringing up Obamacare but for many years the feds have required the health care industry to ask patients if they have guns in their homes. My wife is a retired RN who provided home visits. The federal questionnaire she had to fill out for each visit required the patient to reveal whether their were guns in the home. btw, she never filled out that particular question.

Background checks on private transfers means you can´t pass on Your dad´s deer rifle to your son without putting him through a background check. This gets the camel´s nose a little further into the tent. The ultimate goal is,of course, complete confiscation of honest people´s firearms. The left doesn´t really care that this won´t stop the young blacks from slaughtering each other. They realize that this would disarm conservatives mostly. That´s their end game.

Saudi Arabian Flag Candy Statue Removed

A nine-foot sculpture depicting the Saudi Arabian flag in the shape of a piece of candy is reportedly being removed from its grounds near the 9/11 memorial in New York City after facing backlash. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said they’d relocate the installation, which features the words “There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is the prophet” in Arabic, after many felt its proximity to Ground Zero and the 9/11 Memorial was insulting and insensitive. Fifteen of the 19 hijackers in the Sept. 11 attack on the United States were Saudi nationalists,

In the daily headlines, the government shutdown—now the longest in American history—is reported as a clash between two uncompromising forces: President Trump and Speaker Nancy Pelosi. In this battle, however, the most important general may be the one who’s escaped almost all notice. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has put on full display his penchant for knowing when the best course is to do nothing. In the received wisdom, because Mr. Trump infamously welcomed a shutdown in December’s televised and contentious Oval Office meeting with Mrs. Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, he gets all the blame for it.

Watch Willie Nelson and George

Willie Nelson’s list of musical collaborators is essentially a timeline of popular music. Frank Sinatra? Wynton Marsalis? Ray Charles? Julio Iglesias? Check, check, check, check. Norah Jones, Kacey Musgraves, Chris Stapleton, even Snoop Dogg? Yep. Basically every country star who ever passed through Nashville and stopped off in Texas? Of course. Yet somehow, during the course of his illustrious and highly collaborative career, there’s one epic name that Willie hadn’t added to his list: King George Strait, his fellow Texan great, whose stature rivals Willie’s when it comes to the names that have defined country music.

Women Don’t Belong in Combat Units

The Obama-era policy of integrating women into ground combat units is a misguided social experiment that threatens military readiness and wastes resources in the service of a political agenda. The next defense secretary should end it. In September 2015 the Marine Corps released a study comparing the performance of gender-integrated and male-only infantry units in simulated combat. The all-male teams greatly outperformed the integrated teams, whether on shooting, surmounting obstacles or evacuating casualties. Female Marines were injured at more than six times the rate of men during preliminary training—unsurprising, since men’s higher testosterone levels produce stronger bones and muscles.

We have a couple of updates today. One about a movie. One about a museum. I told you recently that, based on his perusal of the script and glimpse at the trailer, local lawyer Harry Whittington had some concerns about “Vice,” the current unflattering movie about ex-Veep Dick Cheney. Whittington has some personal stake in the movie because he’s in the movie. He’s the local man who was shot by Cheney in a 2006 South Texas quail hunting accident. It’s a scene in the movie, and now that Whittington has seen the scene, he’s even more convinced it’s inaccurate.

Earl Scruggs revolutionized the way we play and appreciate the banjo today. Scruggs, who was born 95 years ago this month, developed his own three-finger method of picking the five-string banjo – an approach so radical it´s now widely referred to as "Scruggs style." That style, which features picks attached to the thumb, index finger and middle finger, has become a defining characteristic of bluegrass music and the most popular style of playing banjo in the genre. Google dedicated an animated Doodle to Scruggs on Friday, highlighting his finger-picking method, which helped elevate the status of the banjo

Thus, the story goes, there was a basis to begin the Russia collusion investigation.

The Fight for $15 isn’t living up to its promise. For years, liberals have claimed that the minimum wage needs to increase to $15 an hour to provide a living wage for full-time workers. The stated goal, as socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders writes on his website, is straightforward, “We must ensure that no full-time worker lives in poverty.” In one way, the campaign has been remarkably successful. California and New York are phasing in a statewide $15 an hour minimum wage. Numerous cities, including Seattle, Minneapolis and Washington D.C., have passed $15 an hour minimum wage

Gillette is embracing the #MeToo movement in a new digital ad campaign aimed at men, the latest message from an advertiser attempting to change societal norms. The ad, dubbed “We Believe,” opens with audio of news about the current #MeToo movement, bullying and “toxic masculinity.” A narrator then goes on to dispute the notion that “boys will be boys,” asking, “Is this the best a man can get? Is it? We can’t hide from it. It has been going on far too long. We can’t laugh it off, making the same old excuses.”

For the last 35 years, the snowpack in the West’s mountains has resisted the impacts of global warming. But that could soon change, according to a new study out of Oregon State University. The study, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, found that although climate change should have caused a steep decrease in snowpack, naturally occurring, decades-long weather variations shielded the Cascades, Sierras and Rockies from some of the effects. Although snow stations have recorded some decline, it hasn’t been statistically significant. But according to the study, without this natural weather variation, snowpack in Oregon could have declined
