The background check is only a slick way of being able to deny someone they don’t want to own a gun. They would (given their past record) only continuously expand the criteria for ownership until only but a certain percentage would be able to own one. We all know how the Feds use incrementalism to achieve their end goals. It would also give them a way to tie yet another group of records into their databases for instant access - your medical records. They already figured out a slick way to get access to all of our financial information with Obamacare. The elites want to be able to know everything about you but not the other way around.
And when the so-called “background check” is used to deny firearms to everyone who belongs to the political party out of office and out of favor, it will have reached its apotheosis.
And then it’ll be used to compile the list for confiscations.
Exactly. The key word is incrementalism. Once the background check is passed with basic criteria (criminal records), the libs then could then add whatever they feel like down the road, such as your medical records (you should not own a gun if you are taking prescription drugs for instance), financial records (are you going through bankruptcy, you could snap etc). Its a slippery slope.
This Manchin guy, of all people. Who would have tagged him as the Feds go to guy for gun grabbing? West Va must be proud.
