Gun Control Act of 1968 ;-)
The GCA is codified as Chapter 44 of Title 18 of the United States Code,
By making sellers criminals it grabbed the guns of many.
The way is ripe for political tyrannies of all sort.
Under the GCA, selling of firearms to certain categories of individuals is prohibited.
Prohibited persons (sample)
-or has been convicted in any court of, a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year
-is an unlawful user of or addicted to any controlled substance (as defined in section 102 of the Controlled Substances Act
-has been discharged from the Armed Forces under dishonorable conditions
-who, having been a citizen of the United States, has renounced his citizenship;
-has been adjudicated as a mental defective or has been committed to any mental institution;
The Federal law pretends to allow the Federal government to violate the 2nd and 10th amendment.
To properly investigate would need a review of cases where "violators" were tried and convicted under USCodes. How many were acquitted by juries?
How many sellers denied legal buyers due to seller suspicions. True, this case is a gun ban is not a grab. How many had their guns grabbed for a two year misdemeanor of any kind and so on.
Does the ATF have a no-gun list like the DHS has a no-flay list.
Both lists grow and grow until everyone is guilty. Why not?
I was also looking at this.
Rights in all amendments have been seriously violated by abusive government actions. Loss of the 2nd Amendment Rights is also symbolic. Standing as the only Right can potentially protects the other rights I practice.
Government can do what it wants when if it has no Rights to protect.
