I oppose any bill that tries to limit my Rights. Support of any Bill that infringes on my constitutionally protected rights is punishable under

USC › Title 18 › Part I › Chapter 13 › § 241
Conspiracy against rights

If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same;

They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section … may be sentenced to death.

Feel free to contact me and I will be more than happy to give you a primer on the United States Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and what the term Freedom means.

In N.C. you have always needed a pistol permit from your local sheriff office, which included a background check. Were are all of these gun shows at were anyone can buy a weapon ? They sure are not in North Carolina.

This is why Congress sucks….Bills like this one, and the several other similar bills by the same sponsor, is why nothing gets done, they are just time killers.

Background checks are ALREADY required for the sales of every single gun from dealers at gun shows. This is strictly enforced at all gun shows. There is no “gunshow loophole”. This is a made up term.

We are fully aware it will hurt private sales. That is why many oppose it.

Gun control only serves to benefit the criinals and create government tyrany. Gun control has destroyed many countries while allowing tyrants to keep power. Look how well gun control worked for Hitler. The Democrats are the new Nazi party.

the people that are voting for this dont realize that in order to buy a gun from a ffl dealer at a gunshow anywhere you still have to go through a background check, this is already a federal law and all dealers have to do this. you just cant walk into a gun show and buy a gun from a dealer and walk out. the people who think you can are stupid, learn the facts dummies. the only thing this will hurt would be the private sales between 2 people.

I think that it is disgusting that these politicians exploit tragedies to advance their unconstitutional anti-2nd Amendment agenda. They will try to convince us that we should sacrifice safety for liberty. If we fall for their propaganda we will have neither safety nor liberty. The 2nd Amendment provides a check and balance to the Government protecting free citizens from potential tyranny. This right is not to be confused with hunting and sport. These politicians have an invested interest in disarming the public. Remember that when they say “you don’t need that to hunt.” They are not to tell us what we need or don’t need.They are to serve their country, constituents, and follow the Constitution of the United States!
