Democrat Rep Jackie Speier said during a presser on gun violence she has introduced legislation that will “require every gun in this country to be subject to the background check.” Can someone explain to Speier that background checks are already being conducted for the LEGAL sale of every gun in this country!

How many times are we going to beat this dead horse? Democrats and anti-gun lobby go to any gun store or gun show and try to buy a gun without a background check. PLEASE DO IT bring all the camera crews you want. You should know it will be a waste of money because NO DEALER is going to risk losing their FFL to sell you a gun.
Now for those conducting private sales from the way Speier’s bill, Fix Gun Checks Act, reads you will have to become a licensed dealer
“(t) (1) It shall be unlawful for any person who is not a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, or licensed dealer to transfer a firearm to any other person who is not so licensed, unless a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, or licensed dealer has first taken possession of the firearm for the purpose of complying with subsection (s). Upon taking possession of the firearm, the licensee shall comply with all requirements of this chapter as if the licensee were transferring the firearm from the inventory of the licensee to the unlicensed transferee.”
So if you want to sell your gun to a friend, neighbor or family member you will have to have a license (FFL) to do so or we can safely assume go through an FFL.
Dems think by requiring background checks on every gun, gun violence will be reduced. Criminals by their very nature do not follow the law, so you dems can pass all the laws you want it will never have any effect on criminals. As for those who are mentally ill by all means get them into the database, but for the record Congresswoman the NRA is already in favor of that so what are you complaining about?
