Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin (W.Va.) and his GOP colleague Sen. Pat Toomey (Pa.) are working on language which would expand checks on firearm sales at gun shows and over the Internet.
Their preliminary proposal, still in talks, would exclude gun sales between family members and temporary transfers for those with a hunting license, according to Senate aides close to negotiations, assuaging GOP concerns, the Post first reported Sunday night.We're all waiting, wondering and worrying about whether and how the proposed "Gun-Control" laws would affect your ability to give your heritage firearms to your descendents.
The bottom line is ... control.
Think about it: The Federal Government is deciding whether they will "let you" disperse your firearms. They are now deciding whether they will "let you" give your firearms to your children, or other family members.
How are they going to do this?
Well, first, they need to identify the people who have firearms.
Then they need to identify the firearms.
Next, they need to identify your family.
See a trend here?
In the "Best Case" scenario, "They" will "let you" transfer your firearms to "your family" without restriction.
In order to effect this oh-so-lenient permission, they need at least three data-points. Maybe four.
- They need to identify you;
- They need to identify your family (and confirm the congruency);
- They need t o identify the firearm
- They need to confirm that you, and your family member, are legally allowed to possess the firearm.
I would usually avoid the use of foul language (except under certain circumstances, usually involving "mass murder"), but today I will define at least two:
Vile Verb: Registration
Vile Noun: Politician
These processes, and these people, do not mean to do you any service .. which is THEIR JOB! You pay their salary, they are (supposedly) your servants. They work for you, they have no mandate to tell you what to do. Oppose them at your every opportunity. Resist their oppression, ignore their illegal laws, and vote against any of them who support illegal Gun Control.
Oh ... all Gun Control Laws are not legal; especially the "hidden laws".
