This too will not stop one innocent person from being killed. Not one child, not one politician, not one first responder, not one innocent bystander caught in the crossfire. Never has and never will. The idea of fingerprinting people who buy guns is such a violation of the 2nd, 4th, and 5th amendments and Obama and Biden don't care about the constitution they swore to uphold. They should both be impeached, prosecuted, and run out of town on a rail. Along with any other public official, republican or democrat, who gets on board with these mandates.

I am the President that was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

I am the President that gave billons of dollars in the form of foreign aid to the Muslim Brotherhood so they could arm themselves.

I am the President who is going to bomb Syria into oblivion, a nation that couldn't beat up your Grandmother.

I am the President who will take the guns away from law abiding American citizens.

You are correct when you say the recent announcement about the two additional gun control measures will have no effect on gun crime.

However, the part about background checks, including fingerprints, only applies to NFA guns. That is National Firearm Act guns, which are weapons that require a federal license, examples are short-barreled shotguns, full-auto machine guns, and operational cannons.

The other part of the announcement bans the reimportation of M1 Garands and M1 Carbines that have been in storage in South Korea since 1955. They were left there just in case the Korean Conflict heated up again.

I wonder how much crime is committed with NFA firearms and M1s?
