The President of the United States and fellow proponents of civilian disarmament are leaving no arm un-twisted and no bloody shirt unwaved in their last ditch effort to enact gun control legislation. The latest dispatch from nbc.com has Pennsylvania Republican Senator Pat Toomey and West Virginia’s NRA A-rated Democratic Senator Joe Manchin burning the midnight oil to devise a bill that would “expand background checks to firearms sales at gun shows and on the Internet.” What of private, person-to-person firearms transfers? And how does the bill would avoid the 500-pound gorilla in the room: record keeping? If the Turncoat Tumey and Machiavellian Manchin’s bill mandates any kind of record keeping for private sales, it’s a gun registry (enabling confiscation). Meanwhile, we hear that Senators Paul, Cruz, Lee and others will “let” the vote come to the floor and then launch a filibuster of the final bill; the American people will get to see who’s for what and hear about firearms freedom as never before. Watch this space.
