    I do appreciate Democrats being honest about their hatred for American gun owners. It just adds a third major single issue block of voters against them in 2020; baby lovers, gun owners and those of us in favor of Capitalism (95% + of the public).

    House Democrats Plan Vote to Criminalize Private Gun Sales This Week

    H.R. 8 would outlaw the private gun sales Americans have enjoyed since December 15, 1791, the date on which the Second Amendment was ratified. This would criminalize a neighbor who sold a gun to lifelong neighbor without first getting government permission via a background check. It would also criminalize a friend for selling a gun to lifelong friend without government permission.

    Ironically, the bill would have done nothing to stop the attack on Gabby Giffords because her attacker did not buy his gun privately. Rather, he passed a background check to acquire the gun retail.

    Moreover, H.R. 8 would have done nothing to stop nearly every mass shooter to date in the 21st century. This is because nearly every mass shooter acquired his guns via background checks, rather than private gun sales. The exceptions are those who stole their guns.​

    How has that ban on the sale of recreational drugs been working for them?

    Doesn't matter. Won't go anywhere. Just more Democrats showing they don't know how to govern.

    Until private sales require background checks the background check system is completely pointless as anybody could sell to a criminal whenever they want.

    It's quite obvious you don't know the laws of my State on such matters.

    Does it require background checks on private gun sales?

    You assume I would sell to a criminal. The laws of my State make it where if I do, I become one. Don't need a background check if I do what I'm supposed to do properly. That term is nothing more than what you've heard some other gun hater use.

    You’d sell to a criminal, since you won’t take the steps necessary to find out if a buyer is one or not.

    Actually I do take the steps necessary and doing what I do involves a background check already having been done.
