New DNC chief: Screen sales of all guns
The Hill ^ | 4/18/11 | MIke Lillis

Posted on 04/18/2011 4:51:06 PM PDT by Nachum

The new head of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) is pushing for screenings of all gun purchases. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz said the current law, which allows private firearm sales without background checks, is "outrageous." The Florida Democrat is sponsoring a soon-to-be-released proposal extending the screening requirements to all gun purchases, commercial or private. "It is outrageous that gun buyers evade the background check system every day, even in broad daylight," Wasserman Schultz said Monday at a gun reform rally in Miami sponsored by Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

Since even the stupidest democrat (and there is a lot of competition for that distinction) must know that gun control measures never work and only cost them support and votes, it’s a mystery why they persist in this folly. Abject stupidity is the most convincing explanation

Yes Debbie, there are no other pressing problems in the country right now... $14T debt, trillion dollar deficits, $4+ gas, double-digit unemployment, 240+ tornadoes over the weekend?

I, for one, think that this is great news! It’s a small price to pay to put an end to murder and mayhem in every big city on weekends, right?

Right on.

I used to hate when Dems came up with gun-control measures. However, since the political climate has changed so decidedly over the last decade or so (we've come very far since the "million" "mom" march), I now root them on when they go anti-gun. That the head of the DNC is doing this is GREAT for us.

This silly twit would do better to stab herself in the face with a dull butter knife than to proposed gun control - but if she wants to campaign for our side, I say more power to her.

Here’s the deal Debbie. YOu want compromise? I’ll give in to your demand that all gun transfers be checked, if you’ll give in to mine.

You claim you’re not trying to create a database, and have no intention to ban and confiscate my guns.

So let’s make it like liquor and voting. Show ID, prove you’re legally qualified, and make your purchase (I was joking about the voting).

No record kept of who buys what. That’s it.

You can put an endorsement on my driver’s license. I’ll go through a background check once ,even at renewal time. And if I become disqualified, the court tells the DMV, and confiscates my license, so I get a new one without the gun rights endorsement.

But you’ll never agree to this public safety compromise, because you really do want to ban my guns.

This has been inevitable ever since the majority of gun owners bought the snake-oil mantra that "only law-abiding citizens should own guns." The end result is that those who don't care to own guns and law-abiding ex-felons (think Chuck Colson?) won't have guns. Felons who want them will get them anyone. So the only folks really affected by gun (ownership) control laws are... the "law-abiding" citzens.

The laws get ever more stringent, and the fact that they accomplish nothing simply means they need to get even more restrictive.

Gun owners are selling their birthright for something rather less than a mess of pottage.

But if that's what the subjects want...

This is nothing but class warfare against an `enemy of the people’ i.e., gun owners who because majority conservative are targetted by liberals for disarmament and subjugation.

As long as the general population is well-armed, the National Socialist democRATS can’t finish their job. Gun control is the tool that they choose to disarm the public. Or try to disarm the public anyway.

Gun ownership is a right, as it facilitates self-defense against criminals and oppressive government (insofar as they remain distinguishable).

I would far rather have localities screen voters to demonstrate their eligibility to vote, which is not a right, but a privilege of citizenship.

...it’s a mystery why they persist in this folly. Abject stupidity is the most convincing explanation.

Abject stupidity? Do you really think that is the most convincing explanation? Democrats, far more than Republicans, stand by their principle. Yes I did say principle not principles. Their only principle is to increase their power over the people. In every stated position the DNC publishes this is obvious. Their policies never fix whatever problem said policy addresses but it always increases the power of government. Abortion "rights", energy policy, taxes, spending, enviroment, these policies are all designed to increase their power over us.

Does forbidding private sales of firearms between citizens make anyone safer? No, and demonstrably no. Does limiting sales of firearms and accessories of certain types help make society safer? No. Does limiting who can carry a firearm and where they can carry a firearm make society safer? No quite the opposite. Would banning all firearms make us a safer nation? No, and it's obvious. Would any of these policies increase the power of government over the people? Yes...and that is why Democrats support them.

We need to move past calling Democrats stupid, or ignorant or crazy. They are evil and wish to destroy the very concept of freedom.

I would agree with you if the gun control measures they promulgate actually produced the control they seek; they don’t. Gun control doesn’t work, dangerous people always work around the laws and the honest people they seek to control are already armed. Gun control is a total political and practical loser and only serves to cost the democrats votes. And yet they persist. Abject stupidity explains it.

Probably got banned, or maybe he's too busy giving hummers to the NRA board to post. He got pretty cranky the last few threads where I saw him and was getting into unnecessary fights with Freepers over views that could have been discussed rationally (not saying the other posters draped themselves in glory either, but he seemed to consistently be the first to go nuclear, so they had some excuse).

The gun control measures do actually produce the control they desire. By banning private sales of firearms they are in actuality creating a firearm registry. Does gun control have the effect they say it has? No...of course not, but they reasons they use to sell all of the policies are never the real reason for the policy. You might say that gun control loses them votes but they have been very successful in passing it regardless of it losing them votes. Clinton blamed the loss of the house and senate during his administration on the Assault Weapons ban, but it didn't stop the Democrats. Nothing ever stops them grabbing for more and more power. It would be nice to think they were just being stupid but history demonstrates otherwise.
