Either they are lying about it, or they are not. If they are not lying, then the words “commercial sale” means that it would not cover you transferring your gun.

If this story is to be believed, there is apparently a way for a commercial enterprise to NOT be a “licensed gun dealer” and to do the sale of a weapon. Maybe pawn shops? I don’t know, because I would have thought all commercial sales were already covered.

The one thing it says that could be problematic — if they define “commercial sale” as “advertising”, then they might argue that listing your gun on a craigslist-type site would be “advertising”. I guess they could argue that posting on a bulletin board at a gun range was “advertising”, so I hope the actual language makes it clear THAT is not what they mean.

I know everybody here will be hopping mad. And if the argument was “we should not have background checks at all”, I’d understand that. But it could just be that we are winning. The democrats are desperate to not look like they are incompetent. They might well agree to something that does absolutely NOTHING real, just to say they “did something”.

And the leftist activists are not totally clueless. They will see they were sold out, and will respond accordingly.

So, I will reserve screaming rants until we see exactly what this bill will do. If it does something bad, I expect the house won’t pass it.

Toomey, as much as I supported you to get you in office, I will work that hard to see you thrown out on your ass, you back-stabbing bastard.
We should never, EVER compromise with tyranny. And we should never support those who do.

Never trust a politician to do what is right, My FRiend. REly on them to save you is like the Jews in the concentration camps hoping they would not be executed. It is obvioue that the politicians, even those that are supposed to be on our side, no longer respect us. After loss of respect comes hate. After hate extermination.

Saw some of the details on another site, TTAG. The bill will only add NICS checks for every seller (dealers and private) at a gun show and internet sales. Outside of gun shows and the internet no background checks required for private sales. Wording a little sketchy, but it might eliminate the need for FFLs in internet sales, seller does the background check and ships to your door. For licensed concealed carriers, no background checks will be necessary from anybody, dealers or private. Strengthens FOPA, in that you can stop to eat, sleep, go to the bathroom in states like NY and NJ when travelling thru.

To me, background checks are dangerous because if the government ever says that all gun owners have to turn in their guns, and gun owners don’t comply, then the govt. will know who owns what and just come to your home and confiscate them. And you will be arrested.

The answer to this deal is: no! no! No!

We do not meet the enemy halfway, between right and wrong, over and over and over. Every time the issue comes up we must compromise? Eventually, you have nothing left.

There _is_ a line in the main street. Hold the line or be part of the problem.

The Constitution of the United States of America, which has a supremecy clause that says basically if it isn’t constitutional, it need not be obeyed. Easily said and far more difficult to get 50 states and 300,000,000 million people to join in the nullification. The left is going to continue their efforts to rid the land of a Constitution, and any that place stock in it. Our duty is to oppose vehemenly and physically any and all such efforts by sworn sacred oath at the risk of our very lives. This would be for all those previously sworn to support and defend the Constitution. The others side has no such mandate.
