Senate gun control bill shot down. Why?

The fact of the matter is that all the sane American people want to put a stop to gun violence, the majority of which occurs through illegal guns. Legal gun owners don’t want crazy, irresponsible, or dangerous criminals to get guns. The issue we face and we fight against is that gun control does not target illegal gun owners! Gun control targets us legal, good, law abiding citizen gun owners. New York City. I live in a city that has some of the strictest gun laws in this nation, I certainly don’t want to be restricted any further than I already am.

Today I wrote to our NY Senators and City Council people, asking for an audience with them as the voice of reasonable and compromising gun owners. Let’s see how that goes. I will say this, so long as the law and politicians continue to punish us for the actions of criminals, we will continue to fight back fiercely and ferociously. Yesterday’s decision at the Senate against Manchin-Toomey was a perfect example how we can and will fight back for our 2nd amendment rights.

I know I’ll regret this, but: How does a criminal background check target non-criminals? I think that all gun control laws are unconstitutional … though I would change the constitution. In fact, though, up until the crazies took over the leadership in the 1970s, the NRA was more in step with the 90% of the country that want gun control. Those opposed are a fringe group by definition … by simple mathematics. Here’s a past president testifying to congress: “I have never believed in the general practice of carrying weapons. I seldom carry one. … I do not believe in… Read more »

They already run a check. The issue is when it takes a year to go through. Also they can use this info towards registration. And lets not forget the medical community and screw you easily. Watch some of my earlier videos, you’ll see the law already abusing,.

You know, right now the nypd can create any excuse and just come pick up my gun and there is nothing I can do to protect my rights.

No. They do not always run a check. Let that sink in. I think that your first sentence, at least as it is written above, is wrong, factually. The “gun show loop hole” … and other loop holes as well … mean this: They did NOT already run a check. I am personally aware of too many people legally obtaining guns in less than a year to believe that your second sentence is true. Certainly not where I live. If you have a problem with NYC, that’s one thing, but you are posting about national law here, given the article… Read more »

“purchases of non-automatic firearms are legal in most jurisdictions without a criminal background check, if purchased from a private seller who is not in the business of regularly selling firearms”

I will agree that gun show loopholes present a problem.

Cool. And I’ll agree that there are problems with the gun laws — as I said, I personally believe that all of the laws [Edit: that infringe on the right to keep and bear arms] are unconstitutional. My main point in commenting here is that I don’t think that criminal background checks target non-criminals. We might easily agree regarding over-reaching laws in general.

“The Manchin-Toomey compromise bill was a scaled-back version of earlier proposals to extend background checks to unregulated private gun sales.” (Washington Post)

FWIW, Republican Senator John McCain cited the gun show loop hole as the reason that he voted yes.
