New Laws That Already Exist

08 Apr

Senators Joe Manchin and Pat Toomey want there to be background checks at gun shows and for online gun sales. The problem? Those already exist! You have to pass a background check when you purchase a gun from an FFL at a gun show. When you purchase a firearm in the internet, it must be shipped to an FFL. The FFL then runs a background check before s/he can transfer the firearm into your possession.

Gun control: what you do instead of something. Congress is full of idiots who want to create new law to cover something already in the law!

I know what you’re thinking – this new law would force background checks on private transfers at gun shows. Yeah, except that it won’t.  Sebastian recently wrote, “Pennsylvania bans private transfers, and it’s a well established fact that Philly prosecutors rarely use these laws to go after criminals. So why have them?”

Passing a bill in the name of “doing something” is not appropriate in any modern society.
