Four Republican Senators Cosponsor Bloomberg Gun Control -- Here They Are

Four Republican Senators Cosponsor Bloomberg Gun Control — Here They Are


Washington, DC — Gun owners would be wise not to fall asleep during the summer months.

Bloomberg’s lobbyists are working overtime on Capitol Hill, lobbying Republicans to support his gun control legislation.

Just recently, FOUR Republican Senators — David Perdue of Georgia, Susan Collins of Maine, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania (lead sponsor), and Little Marco Rubio of Florida — all signed their names onto legislation that would expand greatly the power of the federal government to destroy your Second Amendment rights.

At issue is Senate Bill 875, otherwise know as the “NICS Denial Notification Act of 2019.”

This legislation has also been cosponsored by FOUR left-wing Democrat Senators — Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Chris Coons of Delaware, Tammy Duckworth of Illinois, and Doug Jones of Alabama.

S. 875 deals with the issue of failed background checks when going by a firearm.

This legislation would empower the federal NICS system to ping the Justice Department on a failed background check, then allow them to contact local law enforcement, who will be given time, place, name of prohibited buyer, etc, with the ability to then press charges.

Certainly no one wants a mad man or mad woman with a gun intent on doing harm to others.

But the problem here as the according to the most recent government data analysis available, at least 93% of NICS background check failures are what many refer to as “false positives.”

Meaning there should never have been a purchase denial at all.

That’s the problem with government lists of gun owners.

In millions of cases, gun owners or those who wish to purchase a firearm are placed on government prohibited lists without their knowledge or without proper due process.

Any American knows once on a government list, it’s either impossible or very expensive to ever get their name of that list.

And when it comes to the NICS system, Americans know full well they never delete names off of that list. One would be more than naive to think so.

The four Republicans cosponsoring this legislation are giving more power to federal bureaucrats to eliminate Second Amendment rights of Americans.

This is just one mechanism someone like Kamala Harris has vowed to use via executive action should she become President.

No Republican should be anywhere near this Bloomberg gun control expansion.

Just imagine scores of unelected bureaucrats sitting in rooms shuffling papers around as NICS purchase denials come in, making a call down to local law enforcement, then a knock on your door wanting to know why you were trying to buy a gun and what you wanted to use it for.

Torn here.

If this leads to people being able to clear false positives (or in this case, negatives) from NICS, information they may not even know is a problem UNTIL they try to buy something, then it MIGHT be a good thing. If this is just a way for people to be further screwed out of their rights, I am far from OK with it.

regardless of its intent any more restrictions on ANY AMERICAN are infringements.

Gun control needs to be banned. All gun control for all Americans in all states needs to be abolished.

so have we been playing the game smartly to this point? Because the restrictions are being proposed at an exponential rate. And the reason is because the anti's feel they have manipulated enough of the base to complete their agenda.

So school me on how we can now as you say "play the game smartly instead".

You think we should consider passing Bloomberg's gun control legislation because it might help some people clear false positives/negatives?

Rubio is still a massive, greasy shit nugget. Shocking.

Marco Rubio will run again for President on being a great Republican. The man has zero integrity or scruples. He will say or do whatever it takes to get what he wants. Like, worse than most politicians. He's biding his time until post-Trump era. We're talking 8 years from now. By then, Hispanic will be "in" and he'll be "in" because of it.

What he doesn't realize is that changing your policy over and over again is NOT a method to getting ahead in national politics.

Toomey and Collins are no surprise. I have no knowledge of Frank Perdue except for his fine university educated chickens.

It won’t. It likely doesn’t change how nics operates in that sense.

Given the falsing rate of NICS this is really f***ing dangerous...

Having a common name like "John Smith" on such a list will cause issues for lots of people (My name is not John smith, however I do have a very common name). Passport control is a riot coming back into the country when CBP escorts you to the "Secondary/Tertiary Screening" areas.

Strangely enough I have an extremely common name and have never had an issue with buying a gun or dealing with customs/immigration. Certainly not a complaint.

Once, when I was buying a gun in Colorado, the store owner was telling me a story that he had recently called NICS for a purchase and cops showed up to arrest the prospective buyer. I can't recall the details of why the prospective buyer was arrested. This was about 20 years ago. But, unless I'm missing something which always a possibility [laugh], it sounds like this was unwritten law already from that story.

90%+ of NICS denials are false positives. The entire issue is a joke. Look at the ATF/FBI data on denials over last 2 decades. It clearly shows NICS should be dismantled as worthless and a clear infringement.
