Preventing Gun Violence in Our Nation (Gun control report from Soros/Hillary/Obama-linked group)
The Center for American Progress ^ | January 13, 2013 | Neera Tanden, Winnie Stachelberg, Arkadi Gerney, and Danielle Baussan

After last month’s senseless shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut—in which 20 children and 6 adults were shot and killed—we need to immediately address the gaps in our current law that enable mass shootings, as well as the everyday shootings that on average claim the lives of 33 Americans each day.

In this issue brief we recommend 13 legislative proposals and executive actions to prevent gun violence in our nation. These actions are targeted in the following three key areas:

■Better background checks

■Taking military-grade weapons off the streets and out of criminals’ hands

■Better data, better coordination, and better enforcement

We discuss these actions in further detail below.

Better background checks

Legislative proposals

A background check for every gun sale

Almost all Americans agree that certain dangerous individuals—such as violent criminals, the mentally ill, drug abusers, and perpetrators of domestic violence—should not be permitted to own firearms. Under current federal law, such people are in fact barred from possessing a firearm. The only way to determine whether an individual is prohibited from purchasing a firearm under state or federal law is to conduct an instant background check.

The nation’s licensed federal firearms dealers routinely conduct such checks, but under current federal law, gun transfers by people other than licensed federal firearms dealers are exempted from background checks. These so-called “private sellers”—people who maintain that they are not “engaged in the business” of selling guns —are not required to perform checks.

An estimated 40 percent of the gun transfers that occur each year in the United States—more than 6 million gun transfers—originate from private sellers. Such private sellers often congregate at gun shows or sell guns online. This creates an easy opportunity for dangerous individuals who are ineligible...

Any elected official that fails to uphold the constitution is guilty of treason, a hanging offense.

“Taking military-grade weapons off the streets and out of criminals’ hands”

Which is liberal code for “taking military-grade weapons out of the homes of legal owners and/or turning those owners into criminals by executive fiat.”

What about the senseless attack on the hearing of millions of Americans caused by ill-considered gov’t restrictions on inexpensive healthful firearm silencers?

These idiots already had their "agenda" in mind BEFORE they did their study.
What frauds they are!

The United States Citizens KNOW that they're going to have to fight TYRANTS in their own government.
You cannot protect life, without the ability to take life.

While you are WAITING for the police to respond, someone could be losing their life.
All people of a responsible age should be armed.

As EternalVigilance reminded us:

Let's subjugate them to OUR end game, DUST!
People who study the Bible know that COMPROMISE almost always leads to destruction.

It's time to mock the "Gun Control" Zombies!
"Gun Control" is a firm grip, steady breathing, accurate aim (developed by lots of practice), and a slow trigger pull.

The Swiss have got it CORRECT !
We need to learn from the Swiss and implement their "gun control measures" here in the United States right now, today!
These laws are the ones we should shove into the "2nd Amendment Haters" faces.

The Swiss have got it CORRECT !
Let's adopt THEIR LAWS !

Remember: Read Second Amendment: It’s Not About Hunting, IT'S ABOUT TYRANNY .
