AS I HAVE COMMENTED BEFORE, the real goal of this latest push for gun control is to get control over, and eventually close down private sales. It is an attempt to force all transfers through the strainer of an FFL and the NICS background check. Your dealer probably loves it because it will force more business his way. That "transfer fee" will skyrocket when buyers no longer have the option of shopping from a private seller. A classic "divide and conquer" - separating the interests of FFL dealers and gun owners.
Obama, DiFi and Reid threw an assault weapons and hi-cap magazine ban in the bill just so they could give them up in a grand "compromise" to get the jewel in the crown - universal background checks, complete control of firearms transfers, and the automatic registration that is a by-product of the legislation -which will be needed to implement onerous provisions of the UN's ATT.
Oh, didn't they tell you that the records of all sales records generated in universal background checks will be KEPT? As many whistle blowers have claimed they already are - in defiance of Law!
To be a Democrat is not just to have a difference of priorities with Republicans, it is to adopt and accept an ideology of surpassing evil, dedicated to tyranny in every possible form. You cannot be a Democrat and an American at the same time.
