Radical and progressive left’s four-prong strategy for destroying the Second Amendment. If Democrats take control of both houses of Congress and the U.S. Presidency third prong will be: “expand” gun background checks. Part three (3).

New York – -(AmmoLand.com)- Expanding background checks, and delaying the purchase of, trade or resale of guns, ammunition, and gun gear and accessories like magazines and buttstocks is merely another ‘muscular‘ attempt to slowly whittle away at the true efficacy of the right codified in the Second Amendment.

It is merely another mechanism to reduce the right of the people to keep and bear arms to a nullity. It need hardly be said that most criminals don’t obtain their firearms lawfully. They either steal firearms or obtain them on the black market or through straw purchases all of which are illegal, If the stated purpose is to close what antigun proponents point to as loopholes, then let’s take a look at those purported loopholes. One concern mentioned is that people don’t have to go to the holder of an FFL to obtain a firearm if one purchases a firearm directly or if a person purchases a firearm from another person at a gun show, where laws are not enforced.

Well, actually they are enforced. No one is permitted to sell, trade, or otherwise dispose of firearms without complying with federal law and applicable State law.

Purchases through the internet have to be made through the intermediary of a person holding an FFL. Purchases at gun shows are usually made through a holder of an FFL directly as are purchases made at a retail gun store where the sellers would be required to have an FFL, and possibly a State gun license as well.

What about private sales at gun shows?

Well, sellers of firearms are still required to comply with the law. No one is permitted to dispose of a firearm to an individual who is prohibited from federal law from possessing a firearm. Antigun groups like to argue that “gun” people are unscrupulous. Well, no they aren’t. Law-abiding gun owners are the most scrupulous of American citizens. See NRA discussion on this.

The antigun New Progressive Left, viewing gun ownership as evil, doesn’t draw a tenable distinction between law-abiding gun owners and criminals. But, this should come as no surprise.
