Kennesaw, Georgia — Georgia Republican U.S. Senator David Perdue locked arms with anti-gun Democrat Senators to co-sponsor S. 875, a bill that weaponizes the NICS background check system against gun owners.
875 will allow the Department of Justice to pursue CRIMINAL charges against individuals that have been denied a firearm purchase due to a failed background check.
The federal government will have permission to mobilize state and local law enforcement against civilians just for attempting to legally purchase a firearm.
Criminal charges could be issued for simply seeing if you are eligible to buy a gun.
All gun purchase denials will ping on the NICS system, and the Department of Justice will initiate a hunt for these individuals.
The Crime Prevention Research Center reports that 93% of NICS firearm denials are “false positives” and should not have pinged the system in the first place.
The number even jumped to 94.2% in one instance when over 500 referrals were not found to be a prohibited person.
In other words, the initial review didn’t find that these “false positive” individuals had a record that prevented them from buying a gun.
Not only does Perdue want to target those inquiring into their ability to buy a firearm, 93% of the names given to Perdue will be completely within their rights.
Law abiding citizens should not have to go through a lengthy and expensive appeal process, a process that Obama suspended from October 2015 to January 2016.
Will you be one of the 93% that was inaccurately reported to NICS?
I guess you’ll find out when law enforcement is at your door with a warrant for your arrest.
Read the bill’s language for yourself:
“To provide for the reporting to State and local law enforcement authorities of cases in which the national instant criminal background check system indicates that a firearm has been sought to be acquired by a prohibited person, so that authorities may pursue criminal charges under State law, and to ensure that the Department of Justice reports to Congress on prosecutions secured against prohibited persons who attempt to acquire a firearm.”
This bill was introduced by Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA), and co-sponsored by Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL), Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), Sen Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), and Sen. David Perdue (R-GA).
That’s right, Perdue’s name is right next to radical democratic candidate for President, Amy Klobuchar.
Marco Rubio has often taken the lead in pushing gun control on Capitol Hill in DC, so his name on this bill is to no surprise.
David Perdue’s co-sponsorship is the jaw dropper.
After cosponsoring this Bloomberg gun control, Perdue’s so-called “conservative values” appear to be slipping.
S. 875 is a gross and immense expansion of federal government powers over your Second Amendment rights.
Perdue and his cohorts have embarked on the infamous slippery slope at the expense of the Second Amendment and gun owners alike.
