Biden Hints at Outlawing
Unregulated ´Private´ Gun Sales

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:abuela10, 1/10/2013 2:15:45 PM

Vice President Joe Biden, in remarks today before a meeting on guns, suggested the Obama administration is seriously considering outlawing unregulated "private" gun sales:"And so the kinds of things that there´s an emerging set of recommendations, not coming from me but coming from the groups we´ve met with," said Biden today, before a closed door meeting on gun control. "And I´m going to focus on the ones that relate primarily to gun ownership and the type of weapons can be owned. And one is,

Mr. Biden, before you try to shove this down our throats, try it for a year in Chicago, Detroit, Washington DC, Philadlephia, and after that year let us know what happened.

Actually enforcing this idea would be easier than one might think. Assuming they pass laws requiring the registration of all firearms and the subsequent updates to their database whenever a private owner sells his gun to a dealer, anytime a gun shows up as having been sold to a dealer or is confiscated from an owner and the name associated with the serial number is not the one in the database, bingo you´ve got a legal case.

Resist the current gun grab control initiatives and same´s attack on the Second Amendment by the current socialist Washington administration whose ultimate goal is to disarm law-abiding U.S. Citizens in any fashion.

It is odd to me that the Feinsteins and Bloomburgs of our country fail to recognize that 6 million Jews were slaughtered in WWII because they could not defend themselves.

These same Feinsteins and Bloomburgs and Hollywood anti-American socialists employ “protection” but wail against you and I protecting ourselves and those for whom we are responsible.

I choose not to be a victim. I presume you too choose not to be a victim and defend, under the provisions of the Second Amendment, those about whom you care and bear the responsibility of defending in unexpected extreme circumstances.

Put the mentally ill away. Do the same with criminals and enforce what is on the books currently.

In short, resist all of Hussein’s current contrived gun control crisis Bow-Boy´s trying not to waste.

Now for my take on the headline and on what biden said.

Headline: "Biden Hints at Outlawing Unregulated Private Gun Sales"

There is an obvious contradiction because if unregulated private sales are outlawed, a private sale would not be private as it would be subject to a federal background check. Biden hinted that private sales would be outlawed.

In the state in which I live, long guns can be sold face to face "so long as the seller doesw not have reason to believe the the buyer is a prohibited person".

Handguns, (with certain intra family exceptions) must be transferred through an FFL.

Re: #12 - What Biden said was the following: "And so the kinds of things that there´s an emerging set of recommendations, not coming from me but coming from the groups we´ve met with. And I´m going to focus on the ones that relate primarily to gun ownership and the type of weapons can be owned. And one is, there is a surprising -- so far -- a surprising recurrence of suggestions that we have universal background checks. Not just close the gun show loophole but total, universal background checks, including private sales."

How about commenting on why citizens need further restrictions on the type of gun that can be owned? We are not talking about fully automatic weapons here. How does the executive branch have legal standing to interfere with the private sale of legal firearms among private citizens? Why - still - no focus on the mentally unstable? Why further restrict law abiding citizens? No one hawking gun control can articulate how further restricting law abiding citizens from possessing currently legal firearms will have an impact on criminals or criminality.

Will you folks stop touting the tool by which they will take our rights away? Do you not see you are walking right into their net?

"Mental instability" to a liberal is anyone who doesn´t think the way they do and since they make the rules now, do you think for one minute they will let anyone who does not goosestep to their tune own a gun? No, you will be labelled "mentally unstable." Mental illness in this day and age is unlimited and can be defined and redefined at will by these people and you want to hang our Constitutional rights on such a vacillating and subjective criteria. They are not plain dealers. They will not play by the rules. They believe the ends always justify the means and the only way their ends can be achieved is to disarm those who get in their way. History should have taught us this by now.

Grow up!! This isn´t a high school debate, it is a battle and if you don´t get your mind into that mindset you will lose. And when you lose this battle, you lose the war.

No gun nor ownership should be considered illegal. Of course you don´t want to allow someone who is incarcerated or on parole having a gun, but any free person who is not deemed incompetent should be able to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights without encumbrance of any kind. I don´t even like background checks. If people commit crimes (robbery, assault, murder, etc.) throw the book at them. Otherwise, there is nothing more to discuss. "...shall not be infringed." There is nothing in there that says "except when..." or "however, states can regulate..." or "unless the President or Congress..."

Take Heed of #23´s words. I work on Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems. The Heath Control law mandates the use of these sytems by ALL health care providers by 2014. The health control bill also mandates these system be interoperable so in effect everyone´s entire medical history will live on forever in a database legally accessible by the government: every illness you ever had, every prescription you ever took, every diagnosis for you ever made will be in there. Then they can and will define "Mental instability" broadly enough to include all sorts of relatively common, often transient, conditions which will make you ineligible to exercise your 2nd ammendment rights, and they can do that at the bureacracy level without bothering with Congress. Diagnosed with ADHD when you were in 5th grade = NO GUN FOR YOU. Had a bout of mild depression after your divorce = NO GUN FOR YOU!, Diagnosed with a bit of PTSD after serving your country = NO GUN FOR YOU.

BTW - You should all stop calling the Health Control bill "ObamaCare". It has nothing whatever to do with care. It is all about control. For effective control you need information, hence the mandatory requirement that all health care providers move to EHR systems and allow the feds access to them.

Poster #28, as I understand it, there is a strong LEO presence at the local gun shows.

The day after a recent gun show closed, there was an article in the newspaper about a parolee and two other men who pooled their money to purchase a weapon. As the men were walking to their car, LEOs arrested the parolee for possession of a unauthorized gun, and the other two for conspiracy to purchase the unauthorized gun.

In the fall of 2010, the nasty midterms drawing to a close, Michelle Obama was contemplating her next move. Two years into her tenure as first lady, the breathless fixation on guest lists and china selections was subsiding into routine, and she wanted a plan for the rest of her husband’s time in office. Of course, her calendar would never lack for National Hostess duties—the obligatory social functions outlined in binders left by Laura Bush’s team. She had already launched Let’s Move!, the childhood obesity initiative, and Joining Forces, a program to help military families and veterans, was also in

ALBANY — New York, whose status as the most populous state has long been ceded, will soon fall behind Florida into fourth place, a long-anticipated drop that is rife with symbolism and that could carry potentially serious economic consequences in coming years. When the Census Bureau releases its latest population estimates on Monday, demographers expect that Florida and New York will be narrowly separated — perhaps by as little as a few thousand people — and that if Florida does not pass New York this time, it almost certainly will do so in 2014. The census figures underscore immigration trends, as foreign-born migrants continue to

The two tabloid editors at the centre of the phone hacking trial had a secret six-year affair at the end of which Rebekah Brooks wrote to Andy Coulson: “I love you ... You are my very best friend ... I tell you everything,” the Old Bailey heard. It is alleged that Mrs Brooks and Mr Coulson oversaw phone hacking and corruption at two of the country’s biggest newspapers. Details of the clandestine relationship were made public during the second day of their trial, where they are accused of overseeing a decade of illegal activity at The Sun and The News

The Oscar-winning film director Charles Ferguson has cancelled his CNN documentary on Hillary Clinton after what he described as a private campaign against the film by prominent Democrats. Ferguson said he had decided to pull the plug after being met with a wall of silence from more than a hundred people who refused to be interviewed for the documentary. He claimed that aides to the former secretary of state put pressure on CNN behind the scenes, and made clear that Clinton would only co-operate "over my dead body". He also blamed a public campaign by Republicans, who claimed the film would be

When Ted Sarandos put out the word that Netflix would begin producing original shows, he was swamped with story pitches that everyone else in Hollywood clearly had taken a pass on — including some scripts marked with coffee stains, smudged fingerprints and other telltale signs of rejection. That all changed in 2011 after Netflix bought the political thriller "House of Cards" from "The Social Network" and "Fight Club" director David Fincher.

It’s a Duck Nation, and we’re all just living in it. Last week, A&E Network’s reality show “Duck Dynasty” catapulted to become the biggest unscripted show in cable history with its fourth season premiere. With nearly 11.8 million viewers, the show about a Louisiana family that has made millions from its duck call fabrication business is on the brink of toppling “The Walking Dead.” If it does, it will become cable´s biggest show. The A&E Network, as Duck Commander patriarch Phil Robertson would say, is “Happy, happy, happy.” The show premiered in March 2012 and finished its first cycle with an average

The 60 million yuan (£6.4 million) Jibaozhai Museum, located in Jizhou, a city in the northern province of Hebei, opened in 2010 with its 12 exhibition halls packed with apparently unique cultural gems. But the museum’s collection, while extensive, appears ultimately to have been flawed. On Monday, the museum’s ticket offices were shut amid claims that many of the exhibits were in fact knock-offs which had been bought for between 100 yuan (£10.70) and 2,000 yuan (£215). The museum’s public humiliation began earlier this month when Ma Boyong, a Chinese writer,

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.

And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one
