One thing seems to never change. Democrats have a never-ending assault on every aspect of the USA, beginning with the very Constitution itself. The latest bill they’re pitching is yet another attack on the Second Amendment, condemning the private sale of firearms.
House Democrats plan to move legislation criminalizing private gun sales out of committee and get it to the floor for a vote this week.
On January 8, Breitbart News reported that House Democrats introduced the legislation, dubbed H.R. 8, in honor of the eighth anniversary of the January 8, 2011, attack on Gabby Giffords.
Giffords stood with the Democrats as they introduced their gun control:

H.R. 8 would outlaw the private gun sales Americans have enjoyed since December 15, 1791, the date on which the Second Amendment was ratified. This would criminalize a neighbor who sold a gun to lifelong neighbor without first getting government permission via a background check. It would also criminalize a friend for selling a gun to lifelong friend without government permission.
Ironically, the bill would have done nothing to stop the attack on Gabby Giffords because her attacker did not buy his gun privately. Rather, he passed a background check to acquire the gun retail.
Moreover, H.R. 8 would have done nothing to stop nearly every mass shooter to date in the 21st century. This is because nearly every mass shooter acquired his guns via background checks, rather than private gun sales. The exceptions are those who stole their guns.
Yet Democrats are rushing this legislation to the House floor for a vote. Reuters reports that the House Judiciary Panel “will mark up the bill…on February 13 and send it to the House floor for a vote.”

It’s more of the same old playbook. Democrats love to create crises to which they have all the answers. In this case, they are back to the same old song-and-dance routine that the people just HAVE to give up their guns without any thought to the fact that criminals are convincingly deterred from going up against someone who is suitably armed.
Our Constitution is unique in the world, and they are determined to tear it into shreds and subject us to a one-world socialistic environment where the Haves get to dictate to the Have-nots.
My book is here! And I personally handed a copy to our President at the White House!!! I hope you enjoy it
