Gun Control Is Coming! Senate Reaches Deal To Enforce UNIVERSAL Background Checks

on all firearm sales for gun shows and internet... effectively drying up supply with impossible barriers to enter a gun market as a seller.

They say it is not as universal as Obama's plan, but the only difference is that some families are exempted from certain regulations!!! SOUND THE ALARMS! MAYDAY MAYDAY!

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO LISTENS UP!

WE BEAT THE GUN REGISTRY TODAY!

We had a President and VP rallying for it and still we carried the day with information war.

Give yourself a pat on the back, let's keep kicking arse!

Whether you think you can or you can't, you're right. -Henry Ford

Americans don't deserve to have guns...

... If they will never use them against the REAL criminals (you know who they are).

Here is your typical American imagining what he'll do to the bad guys when they come for his guns: http://youtu.be/ylYbcShkChM

Call your elected official to complain/beg? They are NOTHING but a gang of criminal psychopaths and traitors. They don't give a flying F-ck about you, America or that worthless rag called the Constitution.

America will go the exact same route on guns as England and Australia. Think not?

Do you actually believe that you will be able to do battle with the Beast with your Rugar 10/22? I'm almost crapping my pants laughing.

We have lost because we never actually resisted. The 1% that actually give a damn about this country are right here on the Daily Paul. It's over folks.

Down voting this comment or calling me names won't change anything.

“Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.”― Henry David Thoreau

This is fabulous.

I fully support background checks of all government employees before they can carry a gun. Thankfully my right to bear arms is guaranteed by both the 2nd and 9th amendments.

I don't know why people keep thinking this applies to them. Perhaps they have not read the constitution?

I refuse to be ruled by

I refuse to be ruled by collectivists irrational emotions. I don't care how many bloody dead children they wave in front of my face.

These bastards sure are cunning...

I mean you have to hand it to them. They are able to circumvent the right to keep and bear arms by cutting off the selling process. AMAZING!!!

Technically they are NOT infringing on the right to keep and bear arms, but they are INFRINGING on the right to ACQUIRE THEM!!!

We need to change the Second Amendment to say:

"A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to ACQUIRE, keep and bear, ARMS and AMMUNITION, shall NOT be infringed."

Love Liberty, be Vigilant

"Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty" (2 Corinthians 3:17)

Although I understand your

Although I understand your point, I think the original text is sufficient. One can't bear a weapon if one can't acquire one. The federal government is certainly infringing on the original text including the ability to keep (retain) arms.

I agree with you... but....

But as we all know too well today, it's a legalistic point of view that seems to always rule the day. Clearly, I agree, this definitely infringes on our right to keep and bear arms and I don't believe the government has the "legitimate" authority to do it. Since the government is no longer reasonable, the government has taken the original meanings of things and has twiste the F' out of 'em to make them fit their desired goal then gets courts to agree with them. Which is a bunch of bull!

A court will side with the Government who will claim they are "regulating commerce".... which is NOT the original intent of the commerce clause by the way, even though the 2nd Amendment says "shall not infringe". They are going to argue that it doesn't "infringe" because "we can keep" our guns. I know how these pieces of sh't work. And that's probably how they would argue the "constitutionality" of this law if it came to pass.

Just sayin'. Thats why there comes a time when good men must disobey "unconstitutional" government commands. It is OUR duty to do so.

Love Liberty, be Vigilant

What about record keeping? What about dealer licensing?

The "background check" is the Trojan horse filled with much more sinister regulations, you can be sure.

This bill can't be fixed--it needs to be crushed.

Take back the GOP and Restore America Now.

Treaties must be made "under the Authority of the United States"

in order for them to be the Supreme Law of the Land.

Since the Authority of the United States by virtue of the limitations of the Second Article of Amendment does not extend to infringing on the right of the people to keep and bear arms, no treaty which does so is valid, and may safely be ignored by all officers of the United States, or any of them.

In short, a treaty cannot be "unconstitutional" and it cannot amend the Constitution or abrogate any of its provisions.

If enforcing any of this as a regular law is unconstitutional, it still is, even as part of a treaty.

"It would be a felony to sell

"It would be a felony to sell a gun without a background check to a prohibited buyer or police officer."

See how these sneaky bastards work? Why would it be a FELONY to sell a gun to a police officer unless the FBI planned on running sting operations to frame sellers like they do with drugs. The objective of this legislation is to imprison and remove political power from citizens who the federal government FEARS like drug dealers. Yes, the federal government fears drug dealers since they hate competition. We have corruption to the max in Washington, D.C. If any form of this unconstitutional boondoggle passes the US Congress, hopefully the states will simply nullify it.

Over the next day, my suggestion is to publicly link Schumer to Toomey STRONGLY in crafting this garbage which will actually INCREASE the probability of the next mass killing since more citizens will be unable to acquire weapons.

Thank you Bucks County GOP!!1

Don't you mean turncoat Toomey?

It will go down easy, after Toomey's desertion.

A lot of GOP Senators with far worse records on the fiscal issues joined Toomey on guns and I doubt they'll all be put out to grass.

With any luck

The same grassroots hard core gun owners who put him in the Senate will put his worthless ass back on the streets in a recall.

Fiscal issues aside, messing with the 2nd Amendment has been the death knell of the vast majority of GOP turncoats, the GOA has proven to be the real power in the Republican party, even most Democrats who have broken their oath of office attempting to infringe it have been instant kharma'd out of office, we will just have to wait to see who is right though.

Republicans who are deceivers are WORSE than Dems

We have done a good job removing those like Dick Lugar.

Lugar supported every gun control bill ever offered but had conservative voters fooled for 30 years before the Internet rooted him out.

The fact that a Dem replaced him is ZERO loss to us.

This is Pennsylvania, and

This is Pennsylvania, where conservatives are outnumbered, and Toomey has been a lot more conservative than Lugar ever was. Best to focus on winnable races.

That family exemption won't last long

They'll suddenly "remember" that Lanza got his guns from his Mom, and say bye-bye to family transfers without a background check/AKA national gun registry.

Sold down the river once again by the GOP.

Is the water hot enough to make you jumpy?

thats how transition works

thats how transition works

It still has to pass the house

The switch board at the capitol is LIT UP, haven't been able to get through for the last 1/2 hr.

All is not lost yet, but the hour is now to call your senator at his district office!

Call your rep! And tell all your friends to call too!

Nope. It's a treaty. Only 2/3 of the Senate is needed to

ratify it.

The House has no power here at all.

Nope you were wrong

This is not a treaty, it still has to clear the house, which means, IT IS DOA in the house...

Yikes

but 2/3rds is still a big hurdle, 23 Republicans needed minimum.

The gun grabbers don't have the numbers so nothing to fear.

That's awesome. You can avoid the switchboard call direct

Glad to hear switchboard is lit-up. People can try direct as well.

Each Senator has several offices, one in D.C. and usually several in their home state.

Look-up you Senators direct phone here and avoid switchboard:
https://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_...

If you have time or can't get through to your Senator's DC office, call one or more of the local 'home' offices in your state. MAKE NOISE!!! BE HEARD! Let's defeat this in the Senate!
