The Hillarity has spoken, and plans to decree gun control by ... well .. decree.
Wikileaks Release: Hillary Clinton Press Sec Says Gun Control to Be Implemented by Executive Order - Breitbart:
Breitbart News has previously reported that Clinton pledged gun control by executive order. She began pushing executive gun control right after the shooting in the Umpqua Community College gun free zone. That incident occurred on October 1, 2015, three days before Fallon’s email that Clinton “would support…closing the gun show loophole by executive order.” This is in line with a Washington Post report that Clinton wants to use executive orders “to go further than Obama” went on gun control.Incidentally, the "Gun Show Loophole" played no part in the Oregon massacre (UMPQUA Community College is two hours drive from my home). The murderer passed all the bells and whistles of the Background Check which had been recently and universally imposed in Oregon.
Good to know that with new restrictions on firearms purchases, nobody in Oregon need fear a massacre. Other than the one in Roseburg, of course. But it's not the fault of Oregon Voters ... they already made that a crime!
But I digress.
Hillarity's proposal (we have this only by quotes from by the members of her personal staff) is to require back ground checks on all firearms transfers, both public (dealers) and personal (private citizens who don't sell firearms for a living .... like me giving my .30-30 to my son, etc).
That will surely stop all these nasty massacres which are upsetting the people.
Did I mention that the Umpqua shooter passed a background check?
Is it possible that politicians (Hillary) know that background checks don't constrain mass murderers, but they put us honest firearms owners through massive impositions on the 2nd Amendment just because it makes the politicians look really good on video?
Oh, and the background checks require that the firearms involved be identified by make, model and serial number. Nobody knows how that affects the verification of the buyer and the seller, but it DOES provide data to a Universal Data Base on who own why firearm.
I suppose it would be petty for us to assume that this is part of the greater plan to populate a registration database.
And ... oh, apropos of absolutely nothing at all:
The current governor of Oregon is Kate Brown, a Democrat who took office following the resignation of Governor John Kitzhaber amid scandal.
(Kitzhaber was a Democrat, who lost office after having been found to have molested adolescent girls.)
All of the state senators are Democrats. Both state senators to Congress are Democrats.
As far as I know, all the non-democrats in Oregon own guns and shoot them in competition.
Nice to have friends you can depend on, because they know I'm a non-Democrat.
(In other words ... a loser. Just like them.)
The governor is a Democrat.
