According to wire reports, NRA president David Keene said the National Rifle Association has “no problem with tighter background checks of gun purchasers.”
It sounds like Obama and the NRA are dancing at the direction of the same choreographer.
What they are agreeing to, is that law-abiding Americans giving up their freedom because of a rather small part of the population that wreaks havoc on their surrounding society.
The fact that blood thirsty killers are mixed in our otherwise civilized populous is the very reason that we hold so dear the right to bear arms in the first place!
In case you’re new to this fight, this means the NRA has just said that they will go along with a national scheme of background checks, even on private sales.
We call this Brady II, the gun-grabbers “new and improved” background check system. It’s a glimpse of the “transformational change” that dear Barry told us about.
It will be great, right? Post something on facebook, and instantly the “system” recognizes you as a bitter clinger and flags you. Don’t you feel safer already?
Some sarcasm intended here, but I’m dead serious.
Washington D.C. has repeatedly shown us how they operate. You know, like they did with the “universal” healthcare plan. We were told, “just pass the bill and we’ll see what’s in it later.”
And who can forget, the midnight passage of the wrongly named “Patriot Act”?
If there’s ever been a way to implement a national data base of gun owners, “universal” background checks is it.
In case there’s any doubt on the danger’s of compromise, read- How the Brady Bill Passed.
