To my dearest US voters,
Here is something I’m sure you didn’t think you would ever see “Gun Control in the Untitled States of America”
As a passionate gun user in Canada I have always had a lot of admiration for your second amendment.
We HAD bill C68 which WAS our gun registration.
It was a FAILURE even up in socialistic Canada!
Our government just canned it and proceeded to delete the whole data base.
Not to mention it cost all Canadian tax payers over 1 billion dollars…
The program just got CANNED might I mention again.
Wasting money is one thing but damaging the firearm Comunity is another.
We lost many beautiful firearms to our gun registration.
The program was set up as if you don’t want to register your firearms you can bring them in and our Goverment would destroy them you.
Who did we hurt?
Our younger generation.
Thank God for the Canadians that were relentless to see bill C68 stopped..
History does not have to repeat its self.
Control the individuals with mental issues.
U.S. Senate Sets Stage for
Gun Control Votes
Today (April 11), by a vote of 68-31, the U.S. Senate voted to move forward with debate and votes on a variety of gun control proposals.
The underlying bill that will be considered by the Senate is S. 649, the so-called “Safe Communities, Safe Schools Act of 2013”. This bill would criminalize the private transfer of firearms by law-abiding citizens, requiring friends, neighbors and many family members to get government permission to exercise a fundamental right or face prosecution. It is expected that a number of amendments will be offered to S. 649, including a ban on commonly and lawfully-owned firearms and magazines and language to criminalize the private transfer of firearms through an expansion of background checks. This includes the misguided “compromise” proposal drafted by Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV), Pat Toomey (R-PA) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY).
NRA’s position on these proposals is unmistakably clear—we are unequivocally opposed to S. 649, the amendments mentioned above, and any other anti-gun amendments. As we have noted previously, expanding background checks at gun shows or elsewhere will not reduce violent crime or keep our kids safe in their schools. Given the importance of these issues, votes on all anti-gun amendments or proposals will be considered in NRA’s future candidate evaluations.
If the Senate is truly concerned about enhancing safety, rather than political grandstanding, it will replace the current provisions of S. 649 with language that is properly focused on addressing mental health inadequacies; prosecuting violent criminals; and keeping our kids safe in their schools.
The next round of votes on these measures are likely to occur on Tuesday, April 16.
The most important thing NRA members and Second Amendment supporters can do right now is to call, email, write and fax their U.S. Senators, urging them to oppose S. 649 and all anti-gun amendments to that bill, and to encourage your family, friends and fellow firearm owners to do the same.
