Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said this week that he is open to closing the loophole that allows weapon purchases at gun shows without a background check.
In an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel published Tuesday, Ryan said gun show loopholes are a “very reasonable” issue and that it’s “obvious” it should be addressed.
“I think we should look into someone who is not legally allowed to buy a gun going to (a show), buying one, and let’s figure that out,” he said. “I think we need to find out how to close these loopholes and do it in such a way that we don’t infringe on Second Amendment rights.”
You go ahead and “look into that.” I think we should look into booting your cowardly ass out of Congress. The phrase gun show loophole is an invention by the statists. What they really want, and what you’re agreeing to, is universal background checks and a national gun registry. These are evil things, and with everything I’ve got I will defend the right for grandfather to bequeath his rifle to his grandson under the Christmas tree without asking the communists in Washington about it.
I have the same counsel for you that I had for Eric Cantor. Tread carefully, young man. We’re watching.
