Senator Ted Kennedy and the anti-gun zealots who wrote the bill just couldn't resist the temptation to get their hands on our guns. They have included language that GOA has been able to defeat in the past.
When Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) introduced these anti-gun provisions in 1998, the GOA grassroots were able to convince seven senator cosponsors to pull their names from Hatch's bill.
The current language in the amnesty bill is only slightly different from Hatch's original language almost 10 years ago, but it would essentially do the same thing -- threaten every gun store in America.
In Section 205, for example, all it takes for the employees of a gun shop (of five or more persons) to become a "criminal gang" is:
* For them to commit two or more violations of ANY federal felony gun offense -- which includes virtually all gun offenses, including paperwork violations; and
* For the anti-gunners to find that violating gun laws was a "primary purpose" of the group.
So let's say your local gun store sells two or three firearms to Mayor Bloomberg's thuggish agents under New York City's extraterritorial "sting" operations. Your gun shop is now a "criminal gang."
This provision could even be used against a family of five who drives by two schools on the way to a movie with a gun in the glove compartment. Certainly under a Hillary administration, it would not be surprising to see them treat this infraction as a "felony" under the weird language of Gun Free School Zones Act. Thus, you and your family would become a "criminal gang."

The Immigration Bill? Gun shops? “In Section 205, for example, all it takes for the employees of a gun shop (of five or more persons) to become a “criminal gang” ... does that mean only illegals work there?
Small addition I omitted: This is a S-T—R-—E——A-——C—————H!
That law about driving by a school with a gun in the car was defeated here in Texas.That is no longer a crime since CC and the new defination of travel.
Yet bush loves it.
WHY THEY WANT OUR GUNS:
Wouldn’t you know the fat swimmer would and did sink this low.
Unbelievable! The crimmigrants get amnesty and gun owners become criminals.
He's got secret service protection for life. He doesn't need a personal firearm. Besides, the Senate is starting to get a little nervous with all the armed conservatives out there who are so angry about the amnesty bill. It's time to take their guns before they do something foolish.
Yes, the gangs in Lost Angeles are so bad already — the vote-grubbin, Republic-busting libs KNOW THIS and the are afraid because THEY KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN THE USA goes Mexican — gangs, wars, crime, drugs, killings, etc, etc. THEY KNOW THIS — so they are trying to curb it by shutting down gun shops. WHAT A CROCK — it shows they know how VERY BAD this piece of crap destructive amnesty bill is — they know it!!!
Yet the votes are far more important to them than America and the rights of its citizens.
Sheesh. And today Chertoff said us narrow-minded bigots haven’t even read the bill. He better watch what he wishes for.
Y’all have fun but, ................................
Is this pledge week at GOA? Never miss a chance, do they!
Chertoff is a pathetic joke. Over the past year he’s said....
The border situation is under control
it’s too expensive to protect the border
no terrorists would try to cross our border
and most recently, this bill will help to prevent terrorists from crossing the border.
Just like the Patriot Act, we are told that this immigration bill was just the result of some “negotiation” with a group of Senators, but the bill itself has sections that obviously someone has been working on for a long time and just waiting to attach to some fast moving horse.
Every passing day brings more revelations about what a monstrosity this is. We must drive a stake through it while we still can.
I truly do despise that arrogant blinkered fool.
I was being sarcastic. I’m just as steamed as I assume you are, hence the flaming smilie. I carry myself and won’t relinquish no matter how many laws they pass.
