H.R. 8 Markup: Liberal Democrats Markup Gun Control Legislation


The Nancy Pelosi Speaker Era 2.0 continued on Wednesday, Feb. 13, with a markup of H.R 8, the “universal” background checks bill, in the House Judiciary Committee. Following on the heels of last week’s Judiciary Committee hearing, the same committee held a markup on Wednesday, where amendments and corrections to H.R. 8 could be considered. Unfortunately, the markup was clearly designed to allow the anti-gun Democrats who control the Judiciary Committee to grandstand and promote attacks on law-abiding gun owners, rather than consider efforts to combat violent crime.



NEWS
Turning a Right into a Privilege: HR 1112 Gives Feds Unfettered Power to Block Gun Sales


H.R. 8, which would criminalize the private transfer of firearms, has received significant attention from the gun rights community. However, H.R. 1112, which purportedly targets the inappropriately-named “Charleston loophole,” is just as insidious an attack on gun owners. Both bills were passed out of the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. H.R. 1112 would eliminate the 3-day safety-valve provision under the federal firearms background check system that prevents the government from enacting an indefinite delay of firearm purchases for law-abiding Americans. All Federal Firearms Licensees (gun dealers) are required to conduct a background check on prospective purchasers to determine if transferring the firearm would violate state or federal law. Under current law, if an FFL initiates a background check, but does not receive a determination from the National Instant Criminal Background Check System within three business days, the FFL may proceed with the firearms transfer. After the three-day window, FBI continues to research the matter that gave rise to an individual’s delay for 90 days after the check was initiated. If it is later determined that the person is prohibited from possessing firearms, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is notified and tasked with retrieving the firearm.

Polls: No Lasting Support for Gun Control One Year After Parkland


Thursday marked the one year anniversary of the terrible crimes at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL. It was a somber occasion, but some media outlets couldn’t contain their glee this week that last year’s horror might finally advance the anti-gun agenda. A CNN headlined heralded “A new era on guns.” “After Parkland, everything is different,” Salon gushed.

House to vote on gun control bills next week


The House is set to vote on legislation (H.R. 8) next week to criminalize private transfers and legislation (H.R. 1112) would eliminate the 3-day safety-valve provision under the federal firearms background check system that prevents the government from enacting an indefinite delay of firearm purchases for law-abiding Americans.

WASHINGTONPOST.COM
Most Americans incorrectly think gun-murder rates have gotten worse, not better


On the first anniversary of the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., NPR, “PBS NewsHour” and Marist released a poll exploring views of various approaches to gun ownership in the United States. At the end of that poll, though, was an interesting question. The pollsters asked respondents a question about a matter of fact: Did they think that the rate of gun murders in the United States was higher or lower than it had been 25 years ago? This history was probably not immediately at hand for respondents. So how did the poll respondents view gun violence now as opposed to then? Most believed that the rate of gun murders now is higher than it was at that point. To be explicit: This is wrong. Data from the FBI breaks out reported murders by type of weapon, showing a drop in the raw count of firearm murders since a peak in 1993. (Both the Marist poll and the FBI data are predicated on “murder” as a metric, a term The Washington Post generally reserves for homicides involving a criminal conviction.)

Bloomberg’s Everytown: Criminalizing Private Transfers is About Creating “Culture of Compliance”


If you were still under the impression that gun control was about giving law enforcement the tools to target violent criminals, think again. At a February 12 hearing concerning Nevada Senate Bill 143 that criminalizes the private transfer of firearms, Attorney for Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety William Rosen made clear that gun control is about creating more servile law-abiding gun owners.

Pelosi Claims Future President Could Use “National Emergency” to Target Guns


First, gun control supporters supposedly wanted a “national conversation” on gun violence. Then they purported to want Congress to enact so-called “common sense gun reform.” Now some anti-gun lawmakers are dispensing with any pretense of good or constitutional governance and revealing that they are willing to target guns and gun owners by executive fiat.



NEWS LEGAL & LEGISLATION
The Truth about Gun Sales and H.R. 8


As Congress considers H.R. 8, let’s consider some of the arguments made in support of so-called “universal” background checks. Anti-gun organizations regularly claim that criminals acquire firearms online. Everytown and its predecessor, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, have published a number of “reports” that claim to have found evidence of prohibited people attempting to buy firearms through websites that “could potentially” transfer tens of thousands of guns. This last statement, of course, chooses hyperbole over reality.

What to Make of Crime in England?


Sometimes it’s hard to understand what things are really like “across the pond.” Anti-gun extremists in America reflexively point to England whenever the discussion about adding restrictions, and especially banning firearms, arises here in the United States. England, after all, had banned virtually all semi-automatic and pump-action rifles and shotguns in the 1980s, then imposed a near total ban on handguns in the 90s. Those British subjects who wish to own the few types of rifles and shotguns the government has deemed allowable for civilian possession must navigate a Byzantine system of licensing and certification.

That letter advised Congress that passing background checks that ban private gun sales is a moral imperative. They contend this infringement on constitutional rights is necessary to protect American safety. There are a few things the military just won’t tolerate. Lack of discipline. Disrespect. Getting out of step. I should know—I spent 25 years instilling those values into my Marines. On this, though, I can’t salute. These military officers claim the moral high ground in the gun debate. Their service is admirable, but they hardly speak for all of us. I’ve been to war, and I won’t forget those who prey on disarmed societies.

Blast from the Past: Proof Found That Brady Campaign Still Exists!


Nostalgia gripped gun owners this week as longtime foe the Brady Campaign managed to garner a few measly headlines in the media landscape they once commanded so ably. As it happens, the Brady Campaign has decided to go undergo another rebranding effort and will now go by simply “Brady.” For those counting, this is the fourth different name for the outmoded handgun prohibition organization.

The NRA Collegiate Coalition (NRA CC) at East Carolina University (Greenville, North Carolina) is off to another great start this semester.

Giovanni took the initiative to start this group “to bridge the gap between staunch supporters of the Second Amendment and skeptical students with minimal exposure to the gun community.” They have in fact lived up to this mission, and embrace the full gamut of what it means to be Second Amendment advocates on campus.

New Jersey Senator Cory Booker Wants Everyone to Be Vegan

by Cody McLaughlin - Saturday, February 16, 2019

New Jersey Senator Cory Booker Wants Everyone to Be Vegan
More

In a recent interview with Vegnews, a pro-vegan anti-hunting magazine, New Jersey’s junior senator and newest 2020 presidential candidate, Cory Booker, (D-N.J.) flaunted his anti-hunting and animal rights extremist credentials in a lengthy talk about his plans for the country.

Sen. Cory Booker Declares the World Has a Meat Problem

When asked what he would like to accomplish legislatively for animals and veganism, he launched into a tirade about the “negative impacts” that our current food system has on animals. “It’s great to see that consciousness and how people are demanding a change,” he said. He went on to list the bills he currently backs for supporting deep-pocketed corporate vegan interests, labeling them as wins for animals, “public safety” and “American values.”

While claiming to be “pro-choice” in every sense, Senator Booker at the same time declared that “the planet simply can’t sustain’ meat consumption” and the “Standard American Diet” of meat and sides. He further suggested that he would “fight the existing model” by building a new model, presumably without meat, to make current nutrition standards—and years of evolution and traditional meat consumption—“obsolete.”

The End Goal: A Cost-Focused “Shadow Ban” of Meat Consumption

Rather than battling the “political third rail” of America’s politics by uttering a charged, controversial statement where Booker tries to force America to become vegan overnight via legislation, he chooses here to please his extremist backers by instead forcing the cost of meat so high that the average American can no longer afford to eat a balanced meal. By forcing animal farming first into solely small businesses, it will drastically drive up the cost of meat production and, by extension, consumption. These sorts of “shadow bans” are par for the course among liberal special interest groups, such as when Connecticut lawmakers introduced a bill recently to impose a 50 percent tax on ammunition to dissuade cash-strapped middle-class Americans from pursuing pastimes like gun ownership, hunting and recreational target shooting.

The Facts About Meat Consumption

While perhaps the most controversial “sect” of meat eaters, sportsmen are also the most prolific when it comes to environmental protection (and even true animal welfare). As a matter of fact, according to data from groups like the NRA to the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, nearly 34 million Americans ages 16 and older head outdoors to hunt and fish every year, and those 34 million Americans are responsible for the majority of fish and wildlife conservation funding in the United States just through their hunting license fees and excise taxes on their equipment—not to mention the countless dollars in charitable giving to habitat restoration projects and hunter-backed wildlife conservation groups through charitable contributions to organizations such as Ducks Unlimited, the Mule Deer Foundation and others.

Animal farming, meanwhile, is a huge industry that employs millions of Americans with family-wage jobs. It also is a major contributor to efforts to preserve green and open space nationwide—including in Booker’s home state of New Jersey.

Also worth noting, while some Democrats actually are running away from the extremist “Green New Deal” proposal being advanced by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) in recent weeks—and with proposals such as “economic security for those unwilling to work” who can blame them—Sen. Cory Booker has made this issue front-and-center in his campaign for the White House.

New York lawmakers aim to expand gun storage rules



- Democratic lawmakers want to expand New York’s gun storage law to cover homes with children. The proposal expands the state’s existing safe storage law, which already applies to homes where there is a resident barred from owning a gun, such as a convicted felon or someone subject to a protective order, according to the Times Union in Albany. To comply, gun owners must have a locking device for their firearms or store them in locked containers. Under the new proposal, the storage requirements would expand to cover any residence with children under age 16.

2A Fee Hike in New Jersey: Gov. Murphy Wants to Price Guns Out of Reach of the Poor


Under current law, applicants must pay $52.66 to be fingerprinted when applying for a New Jersey Firearm Purchaser ID card or a pistol permit. The permit application itself costs $5. (The handgun permit fee is $2.) Governor Phil Murphy wants to increase the application fee to sixty times the current amount (and have permits expire in four years). A source close to the Murphy administration has confirmed with NJ2AS that he will be advocating to raise the cost of a firearm identification card to $300 and also raise the cost of a retired law enforcement conceal carry permit to $150. We expect this announcement to occur during his budget address Tuesday afternoon.

What’s really at stake in the Supreme Court’s new gun case


When the Supreme Court agreed to hear N.Y. State Rifle & Pistol Assn’ v. The City of New York (N.Y. Rifle & Pistol) in late January, it broke a decade-long reticence on the Second Amendment. The case, a challenge to a New York City law restricting the transportation of handguns, isn’t the minor issue it may seem at first glance. Indeed, N.Y. Rifle & Pistol is much more than a case about a dumb city law—it will set the future of how all Second Amendment cases are decided in this country. N.Y. Rifle & Pistol concerns an utterly bizarre city law that effectively bans pistol permit holders from transporting their firearms outside of New York City (the irony of which seems to be lost on the eminently anti-gun municipality, one would think they would want as many guns to leave the city as possible). Still, this absurdity offers an opportunity: The case gives the Court a chance to set Second Amendment law straight after the lower courts have spent the last decade running roughshod over the amendment.
