So they will crack down on people buying their sons Ruger 10/22’s for Christmas, that’s what will happen. Give them an inch and they take a mile.

The devil’s always in the details.

So, if I’m going on vacation and leave my guns with my neighbor, and his kid is, unknown to me, illegally doing controlled substances, then it appears that I’m screwed unless I can prove that I didn’t know the kid was doing oxycontin.

Is that right???

Gett out of jail free card loophole...

(b) Subsection (a) shall not apply to any firearm that is lawfully purchased by a person—

‘(1) to be given as a bona fide gift to a recipient who provided no service or tangible thing of value...

Sounds like hubby would not be able to buy me any firearms for Valentine’s Day. Nope, don’t like this.

Yet our fearless leaders have let fast and furious fade away with only a whimper.

If Kirk is in support of this bill, then it’s a bad one.

Senators Mark Steven Kirk, Republican of Illinois, and Susan Collins, Republican of Maine, should rethink their support.
