Trying to cut through the clutter of all the rhetoric is difficult at best. We constantly hear that background checks need to be extended to online sales. Since online sales of firearms need to go through an FFL, does the transferring FFL not have to conduct a background check to make the transfer; or is it all just B.S.?

Also note that the gun grabbers have now become desperate in trying to get just about anything passed so they can claim victory for Obama in the fight. Even Obama's rhetoric has changed in the last few days reality setting in as they begin to count votes in the Senate. Obama no longer talks about universal background checks as the language has changed to enforceable background checks--making it sound like something stronger when it is anything but.

It now looks as though if anything has a chance of passing the Senate, it will not include any new record keeping or background checks on private sales. The gun grabbers will have to settle for claiming victory on the basis of "extending background checks to gun show and online sales."

all a load of crap and anything new is bad. If nothing new gets passed I won't call it a win unless those spineless gop f'ers repeal some gun laws right away. That would be a victory, otherwise it is the same old slow crawl to the gas chamber.

UBC is definitely not dead. It will be voted on in the Senate soon.
