More Gun Control Proposals From The Quislings In The Senate

BY Herschel Smith

PJM:

A bipartisan group of senators today unveiled legislation requiring federal authorities to notify state law enforcement officials when a person barred from purchasing a gun attempts to do so.

The NICS Denial Notification Act was introduced by Sens. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), Chris Coons (D-Del.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), and Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), and co-sponsored by Sens. John Cornyn (R-Texas), Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), and Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.). The senators argue that those who fail the background check and violate the law when trying to get a gun — such as convicted felons and domestic abusers — are rarely prosecuted.

Only 13 states currently run their own background checks using the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System system. The rest, including the District of Columbia, rely on the FBI to screen gun buyers, meaning they have to rely on federal reporting to know when someone prohibited from gun ownership pulls a “lie and try.”

Under the new legislation, the FBI would have 24 hours to notify state authorities. Coons calls the bill “one modest, commonsense way” for senators to work across the aisle on gun legislation.

“We can make progress on gun safety while respecting the Second Amendment rights of American citizens, including better enforcing existing gun laws and responding to warning signs that we get of criminal behavior,: said Toomey. “This bipartisan bill is a critical step forward in helping to ensure that our communities can be safe from criminals.”

The legislation comes with the endorsements of the Fraternal Order of Police, Major Cities Chiefs Police Association, Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, National District Attorneys Association, National Domestic Violence Hotline, National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and Everytown for Gun Safety.

Everytown likes it, and that’s all you need to know.  So are your surprised to see Graham, Toomey, Cornyn and Rubio on this list of quislings?  No, I’m not either.

So let’s make sure you’ve got this straight.  Let’s say that a former Soldier or Marine serves his country with honor, and comes home only to be diagnosed with PTSD, like most of them who saw combat and earned a Combat Action Ribbon (CAR, so-called in the USMC), with reporting done to the NICS.  Many if not most warriors who suffer PTSD recover, and they weren’t a danger to anyone anyway.

Let’s also say that they didn’t know that it is the policy of the VA that warriors with PTSD are reported to the NICS.  Let’s also say that said warrior tries to go buy a gun at his local gun shop, only to find out that unbeknownst to him, he is on a prohibited list.

He’s now a felon just for not knowing, and not only that, he will have to fill out any future form 4473s saying that he was once prohibited by the NICS from purchasing a firearm.

That’s what these quislings want to do.  Just so you know.

    The post combat Vet is one scenario that would make this bill unpalatable to the law abiding, upstanding citizen but the politicians don’t give a damn about that voting block because it is small and without voting power. Another consequence of this law would be significant racial disparities on who would have to be reported. That will get the attention of politicians who will start to squeal about not allowing blacks and hispanics to have legal guns like the white folk get. I doubt this meaningless bill will pass but if it does how long do you think it will be enforced before the cry “racism” is raised across the land?

    I’m not so sure this wouldn’t be a good idea. Flood the state apparatus with erroneous NICS denials and let the locals do the heavy lifting. Better than throwing a wooden shoe (sabot) into the gears, no?

    Two things are likely to result: (a) the StaPo will get soooo tired of investigating type-1 errors that they will start automatically trashing them on arrival, and this will cast doubt on the value of NICS in general, or (b) minority groups and veterans’ groups will start raising holy hell over the harassment of their members.

    Either one gives the pro-gun side more ammunition: NICS is useless or NICS is discriminatory; take your pick.

    I’m taking a different side than Frank. The states will likely roll out gun enforcement teams to flash bang babies, blow up houses, and burn Branch Davidians to the ground. Every problem is a nail, all of them.

    They will be instant heroes of the TV news.

    NICS is beyond repair. Just ditch it and implement the BIDS system instead.

    My state (Hawaii) has a “permit to acquire” system that effectively does the NICS thing and asks the same things as the 4473 (with the addition of having to give a release to all medical records). Plus, you have to pay to have your fingerprints sent to FBI and get your name entered into a DoJ/FBI database known as “rap-back”. I don’t know if this provides more deterrence than the simple 4473/NICS process (though the HI denial rate for 2016 of 1.5% is significantly less than the federal 4% rate). The largest category for HI denials is for mental incompetence/impairment. Many of these were people with “medical marijuana” permit cards who may not have realized possessing the card was pre-emptively disqualifying. There’s no data if any of these denials were turned over to county Prosecuting Attorney or directly to state AG for action, I don’t recall any publicity about any cases. So I’m not sure this bill if enacted would really change anything.

    Hey, Coons, I have some commonsense for you and the rest of the quisling overlords: FOAD.

    Toomey-R was just reelected to ANOTHER six year term by the moron electorate of Pennsylvania. He has often proven he is the ideological twin to Pennsylvania’s other low-life federal senator, Bob Casey-D.

    For the life of me I cannot understand why the electorate continues to retain these career politicians. Why ? ? ? But, there you have it….the “democracy” Benjamin Franklin warned us of: “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb deciding what is for dinner.” !

    Republican/Democrat = Right wing/Left wing, same bird !
