Washignton, DC — Well, we told everyone it was coming.
The Democrats ran on gun control during the 2018 elections, and now their elite financiers want to cash in.
With their campaigns funded by noted anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg, left-wing publication Mother Jones now reports Democrat Representative Mike Thompson of California plans to introduce the most draconian gun control legislation in American history.
The goal of the legislation is to ELIMINATE private gun sales.
Here’s the story from Mother Jones:
“Thompson now plans to introduce a bill that will go further than any of those earlier proposals: It will require a background check for every gun sale or transfer, regardless of who’s doing the selling or transferring.
The move has been in the works since before the election, when Thompson met with outside gun reform allies like the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Everytown for Gun Safety, the Center for American Progress, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, and Giffords to talk about what they might push for if Democrats won the House.”
No surprise that anti-gunner Nancy Pelosi is on board as well:
“The precise details of the legislation have not been finalized; Thompson is still discussing the bill with his fellow Democrats and plans to release more specifics sometime before the end of the year.
Pelosi’s office told Mother Jones it could not confirm details about when the bill would be introduced in the next session, but its emergence makes good on a promise Pelosi made to the student survivors of the Parkland shooting—with whom she regularly discusses gun reform priorities—about passing universal background checks if Democrats regained control of the House.”
A story in Breitbart reports that private sales have always been an American tradition, and as we all know, would not have prevented any “mass shooting” in the United States:
“Private gun sales are legal and have been an American tradition since 1791, the year the Second Amendment was ratified.
Ironically, a ban on private sales would not have stopped a single mass shooting witnessed to this point in the 21st century because nearly every mass shooter acquires his guns at retail via a background check. The exceptions to the rule are the mass shooters who steal their guns.
While the Democrats’ gun control push will not prevent mass shootings, it will criminalize a grandfather for passing his goose gun to his grandson without government permission. It will also criminalize a mother who gives her college-age daughter a revolver for self-defense without first getting government permission.”
