Why Congress Should Oppose Universal Background Checks – Gun Owners of America
The articles provides thirteen reasons why Congress should oppose them. Here are the first couple to get you started. They are all good reasons. Just that first question is enough to cause concern? Can we trust the administration that gave us Fast & Furious? That was a gun tracking scheme that they lost control of, and we are still waiting for answers.
Thirteen Reasons Why Congress Should Oppose Universal Background Checks
— Biggest concern relates to gun registration and confiscation
Can we really trust the administration that gave us Fast & Furious to respect our Second Amendment rights?
Recent articles in the liberal media have suggested that setting up a framework for gun registration and confiscation -– the so-called “universal background check” –- is somehow less insidious than other gun control proposals currently on the table.
Anyone who believes this is delusional. Here are thirteen reasons why the “universal background check” is the most insidious gun control of all:
FIRST: The principle that no American can own a firearm without getting the go-ahead from the government is offensive to Americans. We don’t require breathalyzer checks before people get into their cars even though drunk drivers kill more than 30 times more people than “assault rifles” do. Nor do we require background checks on clubs and hammers, which also kill more often than “assault rifles.”[i]
SECOND: Universal background checks would not have stopped Adam Lanza (who stole his guns), or James Holmes or Jared Loughner (who passed background checks). . . .
Many great reasons. Please read them and share them with others.
