Gun controllers just don’t seem to quit.
Illinois Democrats in both the U.S. House and Senate have just introduced a bill that would establish a federal firearms licensing system.
The Blair Holt Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act would put the clamps on unlicensed gun ownership, while also mandating that people possess a valid firearms license when transferring weapons. On top of that, it requires a universal background check for all firearms purchases and transfers.
Representative Bobby Rush (D-IL), who introduced the House version of this bill, said, “Americans are demanding that Congress take real action to prevent gun violence and we must address this issue head on and do our part to prevent the senseless mass killings and shooting deaths in cities across this nation.”
Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), who introduced a Senate companion to this House bill, added her two cents:
“We owe it to the countless and growing number of firearm violence victims to take action. I don’t want my daughters to have to grow up in a country that won’t protect them from firearm violence, which is why I’m proud to join Congressman Rush in this effort and we will keep pushing until all of America’s children are safe.”
It’s very clear that Illinois Democrats want to bring the same gun laws that have made Illinois one of the most anti-gun states in the country.
This move to bring more Blue State style gun control to the federal level is part of a larger trend that has emerged in the wake of the Parkland and Santa, Fe shootings.
States like Rhode Island have already passed extensive gun control packages which include bump stock bans and “red flag” gun confiscation bills.
But blue states like Rhode Island haven’t been the only victims.
Republican-controlled Florida fell for the anti-gun snake oil when 67 A-Rated Republicans voted for gun control.
Similar to the Fix-NICS compromise at the federal level, these laws were not enough to quench the Democrat’s anti-gun thirst.
They want more than just gun control, they’re aiming for full-blown gun confiscation.
With this recent bill to track all firearms sales, gun controllers in Congress are taking matters into their own hands.
Marketed as a licensing bill, this bill is really a gun registration bill. As every gun owner knows, gun registration is just the first step before gun confiscation.
With the 2018 elections around the corner, Democrats are rallying their base around the issue of gun control.
They are prepared to throw everything but the kitchen sink to achieve their unconstitutional agenda.
Gun owners must remain on guard by holding their politicians accountable in Congress and at the ballot box. Conceding any ground to the gun grabbers could be a death sentence for one of our most cherished rights.
As Thomas Jefferson stated, “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.”
In times where gun control is gaining steam nationwide, gun owners cannot rest on their laurels.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
