Its Looney Toons on Capitol Hill.
Everyones heard about the red herring Feinstein Gun Ban, which red state Democrats will vote down in order to pretend theyre pro-gun.
But the bigger danger is that Obama will sign non-controversial gun control which is just as dangerous, but no one but us is talking about.
Take the gun licensure bill which anti-gunners are trying to dub the gun trafficking bill. In the Senate, the bill is S. 54, and was introduced by Judiciary Committee Chairman Pat Leahy (D-VT) -- although it appears that it could have been drafted by an intern.
GOOFBALL PROVISION #1: The bill would impose a 20-year prison term if you planned (conspired) to purchase a firearm in order to give or raffle it to a person who, unbeknownst to you, is a prohibited person.
Who is a prohibited person?
Well, there are the 150,000 law-abiding veterans who are prohibited persons - for no other reason than that a psychiatrist appointed a fiduciary to oversee their financial affairs.
But probably the biggest category of prohibited persons is persons who smoke marijuana. Under 18 U.S.C. 922(d)(3) and (g)(3), you cannot possess a firearm in America if you are an unlawful user of ... any controlled substance...
In over a dozen states, marijuana has been wholly or partly legalized under STATE law.
It doesnt matter ... if you even think about selling or raffling a gun to this expanding class of persons, you can go to prison for 20 years under S. 54.
GOOFBALL PROVISION #2: The bill would make you a federal prohibited person if you are prohibited from owning a gun under State or local law.

JUST LOCK AND LOAD.
Leaky Leahy has done more harm to this country than Katrina and Sandy hooked together.
These senators know the Constitution. Either they destroy it or not. Their choice.
