The Democrats and their corporate media friends are obviously determined to exploit the media driven frenzy that has emerged since the Orlando massacre. After many efforts to de-rail Trump's campaign they feel sure that THIS TIME they've got him. He, of course, assists them every time he opens his mouth off script.
The ghosts of Sandy Hook hover over the present scene and are cited by the Democrats as arguments. Well, pilgrims, the crazy kid at Sandy Hook did not buy any guns or ammunition. His mother bought all that and then gave him unrestricted access to the ordnance with which he killed her in her sleep and then proceeded in his madness to the school. His mother had legally bought the instruments of her own destruction from a licensed gun dealer who ran the required on-line background checks on her. She passed the checks easily. She had no criminal record. She had no mental illness record. She had local residence. Therefore, she passed. Conclusion - The system worked and then this silly woman gave lethal weapons to her insane son.
The phrase "universal background checks" is heard everywhere in the media and in Congress. Let us be honest and not hide behind semantic trickery. UNIVERSAL background checks would require any transfer of a firearm to be approved by the federal government. This inevitably and perhaps incrementally would be extended to all private transfers. That is what UNIVERSAL means. The professional gun control people and their politician allies tell you that the "reasonable" restrictions on gun ownership and purchases that they are pushing for are very modest things that will have only a minor effect on "ordinary" Americans. They lie. Their ultimate goal is the reduction of Americans to the status of wards of the state, protected like farm animals by their keepers. This "protected" status would supposedly safeguard all the fearful from their enemies. Gun control laws in Europe are very tight but their protective effect was noticeably absent at the Bataclan.
Read Federalist # 46. Take the time to read it.
A disarmed America would be just another stockyard feed pen. pl
