Good. Put the bill in front of them enough times and the rightness of the bill will finally seep in through their thick skull.

Or maybe they will just continue to see it for what it really is... treasonous unilateral disarmament of the American people. It never was about gun control. It's always been about people control. The libtards are terrified what will happen when the American people really figure out what has happened to their jobs, and future. Can't say I blame them for trying. Rope burn on the neck is very uncomfortable.

It isn’t anything of the kind. According to the article:

It “would require criminal and mental health background checks for gun buyers at shows and online.”

How does this bring about the collapse of the United States? This is a rhetorical question of which I know the answer------It doesn’t.

They are wasting their time with this crap. They should pass the nationwide concealed carry and ban States like California, New York, Connecticut, and Maryland from passing Unconstitutional firearms restrictions. They should lock up criminals and institutionalize the dangerously insane.

There should be background checks to run for political office. Most of the demorats would be banned holding political office.

......... So if you had an aspirin and a bad day, get into a fender bender, yell at the other person, you are now mentally unstable and cannot purchase a gun. Have a death in the family? Get a little depressed? Go see a therapist? NO GUNS!! This is a slippery slope in the manner that someone elses opinion, OPINION, opinion, based on the way they interperet a book, will severly affect your rights. This is grounds to refuse sale to anyone. Paranoid? Maybe a little, but it is based on watching these clowns "interperet" the law on many othetr occasions. Ask about the suit against Ct. Family Courts or the 50 million $$ suit that was brought against the entire Ct. Judiciary. What, didn't hear about those? Must be the selective news reporting syndrome that is in Ct.

Great idea, nothing wrong with running a background check on *all* those seeking public office.

It only works on people who have a criminal record or those who have been institutionalized or have a history of mental illness. Yelling at a motorist doesn’t qualify. Let’s see if we can compare apples to at least something else in the fruit group.

There is also the fact that HIPAA can make it difficult obtaining medical records. Privacy issues can take precedence over a gun background check.

The RIGHT to bear arms is not based on a privilege to bear arms . This Bill would take away the Right and make it a privilege . Then the Jews will decide that EVERYONE is nuts . Bye Bye freedom . Who is going to pay for the visit to the Shrink ? Will that Shrink be required to say you are nuts or risk losing their privilege to practice being a shrink ? What you don't know CAN hurt you . More important is the Federal reserve And getting out of the UN . not a single politician has brought these issues up . The sovereignty of the USA is at stake .

Yeah right, you know exactly what your liberal socialist friends want. Traffic ticket on one's record equal gun rights gone. You tell a doctor that your not feeling well, and it's firearms confiscation. The liberal socialist want to fully and completely ban the private ownership of all firearms. Feinstein even said it.

90% of the American people want background checks. Pass stronger gun safety laws and make Gun Violence in America the U S gun manufacturer businesses' Biggest problem . Place a large tax on all assault weapons and ammunition--the revenue will go into a fund to help the victims of gun violence and their family survivors. Then; you'll see how fast the American gun and ammo industry and its N.R.A. lackeys lobbying in Congress act with the American people.

90% of what people? How are the libs coming up with these numbers? Oh the Q polls. The Q polls only poll heavy liberal socialist areas to get the results they want. I did a poll and found 96% oppose any further restrictions and backdoor registration.

Your tax idea is good too. How about a free speech tax. Every time you post your nonsense Joe Biden will send you a tax bill.

"The moves that President Obama took by executive order -- like restoring public-health research into gun violence -- were baby steps in the right direction. And yesterday's news -- that the proposed new version of the ban on certain assault weapons that was in place from 1994 to 2004 is dead -- doesn't preclude other gun measures, including stricter background checks and bans on large-capacity magazines, from eventual action in this Congress.

But I have the sinking feeling -- and I suspect many who pray for the arrival of sane gun laws in America are feeling the same way -- that these same 535 clowns who can't pass a budget, among other things, are going to contribute absolutely nothing to the push to prevent another Newtown. It's possible that some Republicans may vote for the background check law -- the same way that some are now embracing immigration reform -- as a kind of modified limited hangout.(Meanwhile, high-capacity magazines, which are of little or no use for hunting or home protection but fantastic for mass murderers, are probably going to survive -- please explain that to me.) And there's the small consolation that some states -- starting with Colorado -- are doing what they can for gun sanity. But it's small consolation, indeed.

The most frustrating part is that when Newtown happened, the NRA was not at all secretive about its game plan -- that it was going to wait people out, like it did after every other mass slaughter of innocent Americans. And of course it's working. An extreme, paranoid right-wing hate group continues to control the direction of our government -- thwarting common sense gun laws that are not only backed by the overwhelming majority of the American people but by the majority of its own members. This is about more than a piece of legislation. This is a complete breakdown of democracy -- a government that was created to respond to the will of the people, ignoring the will of the people."Gun sanity and America's shame - Philly.com

Lock up criminals; institutionalize the dangerously insane. Law abiding citizens should not be punished for the acts of the violent who refuse to obey our laws.

Gun Control Does Not Work, "Lock up criminals; institutionalize the dangerously insane. Law abiding citizens should not be punished for the acts of the violent who refuse to obey our laws. " Government could be doing all these things more effectively if the N.R.A. stops lobbying Congress to pass laws to neutralize existing gun laws and prevent the ATF from doing its job .
