The Trump Administration is taking a stand against the House’s attempts to implement gun registration.
On Monday, the White House released a statement indicating that President Trump would veto bills, H.R. 8 and H.R, 1112, that would expand so-called “background checks” for all gun purchases if they make it past the House and Senate.
H.R. 8 specifically enacts universal background checks and H.R. 1112 would close the “Charleston loophole” that Dylann Roof used in the 2015 mass shooting at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church to buy a gun.
For H.R. 8, Democrats have the bipartisan support of Republican Congressmen like Peter King, Brian Fitzpatrick, Brian Mast, Fred Upton, and Chris Smith. Both bills are expected to pass the House but will encounter steep obstacles in Republican-controlled Senate.
Despite these bills’ innocuous labels, they would ultimately require a national registry to function. And as every gun owner knows, registration is just the first step to gun confiscation.
For justified reasons, the White House expressed its opposition to both bills on the grounds that they violated the Second Amendment. The statement voiced its concern with H.R. 8:
“The extensive regulation required by H.R. 8 is incompatible with the Second Amendment’s guarantee of an individual right to keep arms.”
Then it singled out H.R.1112:
“By overly extending the minimum time that a licensed entity is required to wait for background check results, H.R. 1112 would unduly impose burdensome delays on individuals seeking to purchase a firearm.”
Then the statement concluded with the following:
“If H.R. 8, or H.R. 1112, are presented to the President, his advisors would recommend he veto the bill.”
Since the Newtown shooting in Connecticut, universal gun registration has become the gun control legislation of choice for gun controllers nationwide. Eleven states (California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington) and the District of Columbia currently have universal background checks on the books.
Despite the hype surrounding UBCs, there is reason to be skeptical.
In The War on Guns, John Lott found that UBCs have very little impact in reducing crime, and in subsequent investigations, UBCs actually make it hard for the poor and minorities to effectively arm themselves.
These so-called “universal background checks” are not universal because criminals will avoid them at all costs. On top of that, bills like H.R. 8 would impose more unnecessary financial and legal burdens on gun owners who already have to jump considerable hoops in the first place.
Despite these harsh facts, the gun controllers push on. With the House under their control, they will take advantage of this opportunity to pass gun control out of at least one chamber of Congress for the first time since the Clinton era.
Thankfully, the U.S.’s system of checks and balances will keep the gun control crowd’s anti-gun intentions at bay for the time being.

FLASHBACK: Man Arrested at Bill Gates’ Estate for Allegedly Exchanging Child Porn
In late December 2014, police arrested a Seattle man at Bill Gates and Melinda Gates’ mansion for allegedly compiling more than 6,000 child rape photos.
Rick Allen Jones was employed as an engineer at the Gates’ home and was accused of trading pornography images though Gmail.
He was charged with possession of child pornography.
At the time, the 51-year-old man had been collecting child porn for a decade, according to a report from King County prosecutors.
In 2013, investigators started investigating Jones.
They were able to track him down in March 2014 after he shared a suspicious image on Gmail.
Investigators initially failed to find Jones at his Ballard, Washington apartment. However, police ended up finding Jones at Gates’ estate.
It should be noted none of the crimes actually took place at the Gates mansion.
As Jones was talking to law enforcement at the Gates’ estate, three other detectives obtained a search warrant for Jones’ in Ballard.
At the apartment, the authorities found more than 6,000 images of grisly child porn and rape, 133 of which were children identified by police. On June 19, 2015, Jones plead guilty to felony possession of child pornography and failing to report child pornography.
He was sentenced to 90 days at King County jail, which was accompanied by two years of probation — a complete slap on the wrist when compared to similar cases.
Gates has been a leading proponent of globalist causes in the last few decades.
He is currently spearheading a movement to bring mass vaccination to the U.S. to fight the Wuhan Virus.
One of the nastier secrets of these elites are their alleged connections to vast pedophile rings.
Although there’s no concrete evidence to implicate Gates as a member of these networks, it is rather curious that an employee of his would get caught up in such activities and receive a light sentence.
