ALERT: Chucky Schumer's S374 Gun Transfer Ban lays down the Foundation for Casus BelliSubmitted by AnCapMercenary on Wed, 03/13/2013 - 01:46
Et tu, Brute?
Treacherous Waters Ahead: Check out what the traitorous crazies crafted, just for you.
Say, you go on a trip for over 7days while your out of state friend stays at your home, even if all your guns are in a safe, if the doors are closed but not locked? Technically under Schmucker's Bill, it will be considered an unlawful transfer, thus felony, jail time.
Oh, and you can't even lend your buddy your own gun at the range.
How you like them apples?

** Pardon mods, not sure how to reformat the legalese to fit the page:
‘‘(t)(1) Beginning on the date that is 180 days after
the date of enactment of this subsection, it shall be unlaw-
ful for any person who is not licensed under this chapter
to transfer a firearm to any other person who is not li-
censed under this chapter, unless a licensed importer, li-
censed manufacturer, or licensed dealer has first taken
possession of the firearm for the purpose of complying
with subsection (s). Upon taking possession of the firearm,
the licensee shall comply with all requirements of this
chapter as if the licensee were transferring the firearm
from the licensee’s inventory to the unlicensed transferee.
‘‘(2) Paragraph (1) shall not apply to—
‘‘(A) bona fide gifts between spouses, between
parents and their children, between siblings, or be-
tween grandparents and their grandchildren;
‘‘(B) a transfer made from a decedent’s estate,
pursuant to a legal will or the operation of law;
‘‘(C) a temporary transfer of possession that
occurs between an unlicensed transferor and an unli-
censed transferee, if —
‘‘(i) the temporary transfer of possession
occurs in the home or curtilage of the unli-
‘‘(ii) the firearm is not removed from that
home or curtilage during the temporary trans-
‘‘(iii) the transfer has a duration of less
than 7 days; and
‘‘(D) a temporary transfer of possession with-
out transfer of title made in connection with lawful
hunting or sporting purposes if the transfer oc-
‘‘(i) at a shooting range located in or on
premises owned or occupied by a duly incor-
porated organization organized for conservation
purposes or to foster proficiency in firearms
‘‘(II) the temporary transfer of pos-
session occurs during the designated hunt-
ing season; and
‘‘(III) the unlicensed transferee holds
any required license or permit.
‘‘(3) For purposes of this subsection, the term ‘trans-
‘‘(A) shall include a sale, gift, loan, return from
pawn or consignment, or other disposition; and
‘‘(B) shall not include temporary possession of
the firearm for purposes of examination or evalua-
tion by a prospective transferee while in the presence
of the prospective transferee.
‘‘(4)(A) Notwithstanding any other provision of this
chapter, the Attorney General may implement this sub-
section with regulations.
‘‘(B) Regulations promulgated under this para-
‘‘(i) shall include a provision setting a max-
imum fee that may be charged by licensees for serv-
ices provided in accordance with paragraph (1); and
‘‘(ii) shall include a provision requiring a record
of transaction of any transfer that occurred between
an unlicensed transferor and unlicensed transferee
accordance with paragraph (1).’’.
*** Even though chances are high this maybe DOA, who's gonna take that chance?
Light up their phonelines! And, Email away!
Here are a few quickie synopses from noted gun bloggers:
So, only facilities where the stated purpose in the incorporation documents is conservation (hunting) or firearms proficiency. And if you’re shooting on your own private property, or on BLM land, ANY lending of guns EVEN IN THE PRESENCE OF THE OWNER for recreational shooting would be illegal.

We’ve finally gotten a look at Chuck Shumer’s proposed mandatory background check bill, and the truth is that this thing is ridiculous. The bill is overly broad, has some crazy penalties, and cracks the door WIDE open for government abuse. The full text of the bill is here, and since it’s in that terrible bill-speak legalese, I’ll try to summarize it for you . . .
The main provision of the bill is that any transfer of a firearm, no matter how fleeting, needs to go through an FFL and the transferee needs to have a background check performed through the NICS system. There are some exceptions, but they aren’t very good ones. Page 11 starts off the meat and potatoes for those following along at home.
In order to qualify for an exception to the rule of all transfers going through an FFL, the following requirements must be met:
The temporary transfer takes place at the owner’s house
The gun can’t be moved from the property
The transfer must last less than 7 days

Schumer had kept the bogus “background check” bill under wraps, only putting forth a shell bill with no specifics. Well, he applied the text through an amendment at the last minute, before it passed. John Richardson has the details, including the text. I’ve only skimmed the details, but here’s the key problems:
If you left town for more than 7 days, and left your gay partner, or unrelated roommate at home with the guns, you’d be committing a felony. This should be called the “denying gun rights to gays act.” Remember that the federal government does not recognize gay marriage, even if you’re state does, thanks to DOMA. 5 years in prison.
Actually, even married couples are questionably legal, because the exemption between family only applies to gifts, not to temporary transfers. The 7 day implication is if you leave your spouse at home for more than 7 days, it’s an unlawful transfer, and you’re a 5 year felon. I suppose you could gift them to your spouse, or related co-habitant, and then have them gift them back when you arrive back home. Maybe the Attorney General will decide to create a form for that.

Chuck Schumer’s S. 374, the Orwellian “Protecting Responsible Gun Sellers Act of 2013,” has been an empty shell… until he slipped in Amendment ALB13180 (PDF) today, which shows the “teeth” of the bill. It is an extremely aggressive attempt to destroy the Second Amendment by isolating and criminalizing extremely common behaviors among gun owners.
Take a looking at a sampling of what it Sebastian notes it would outlaw:
If you leave home for more than 7 days and leave anyone at home, that becomes a felony illegal transfer. 5 years in prison for each of you.
if you take a friend shooting and allow him to fire your gun, that is a felony illegal transfer. 5 years in prison for each of you.
If you have a gun lost or stolen and don’t report it within 24 hours, you’ve committed a felony. 5 years in prison.
If you lend a gun to someone for to try out at the range, provide a loaner for a student in training, let your son shoot a rifle you purchased while hunting, or provide a gun to a woman for self-defense, you’ve committed a felony. 5 years in prison for each of you.
That’s just scratching the surface. Make sure you read the rest about how it could Schumer’s law put gun dealers out of business, and create a de facto national registry… a prelude to confiscation.
