Eight Republicans supported massive expansion of gun control laws

Eight House representatives were outed by Breitbart News as being the only Republicans to vote in support of a significant gun-control measure on Thursday.  

The Republicans in question were; Vern Buchanan of Florida, Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, Maria Salazar of Florida, Andrew Garbarino of New York, Chris Smith of New Jersey, Fred Upton of Michigan, Carlos Gimenez of Florida, and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois. 

These republicans supported the bill, H.R. 8, which expands point-of-sale background checks for retail firearms sales to make it mandatory for private transactions as well. 

Most republicans contested the gun control expansion, including Rep. Bob Good (R-VA) who predicted that if enacted, the bill was the first step toward a national gun registry. 

“This bill creates a de facto gun registry by involving the federal government in every gun transfer, including private transfers and gifts, or else how will we enforce these requirements?” Good said according to The Wall Street Journal

While it might not seem like a big issue to have background checks or even a gun ownership database, at first blush, conservatives have consistently stood against such measures to protect second amendment rights. 

Thanks to the right’s common sense way of factoring human nature into their politics, it’s been the longstanding opinion of most conservatives that government officials would want to know where the guns were if they went to collect them. 

If federal officials don’t know who has what firepower, they would have a much more difficult time looking to collect firearms. 

A national registry of which homes are the most well guarded would not only make collection easier but if a certain person were to be very well armed, they could be watched and potentially neutralized by some other infraction. If the government could get Al Capone on tax evasion, they could get a redneck on a permit violation.

    the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I receive 4 emails with the same comment.
    Perhaps there is a way you can remove me from that service?

    ALl of these friggin laws go against us the legal and responsible gun owners.
    These laws never ever apply to any illegal, refugee or other criminals in the USA.
    Tell you what each of you useless politicians, judges et al, who have tax payer funded security, give that up and walk the streets of any major city, like us peons and take your shot.
    Wish the hell MS13 would raise their sights and stop killing our kids, old folks, cops and all and start wacking politicians (demorats 1st, gop whinos, judges, big donors (gates, zuckerman, sorros etc and judges (demorats etc)
    Come on folks would any one of us shed one damn tear if suddenly demorats, rhino gops etc, were executed for their high crimes and treason.

  14. Can’t stop the New World Order Rothschild Banker’s and all their MINIONS! Welcome to hell on earth 🌎 🙃

  15. When they come to get your gun ,protect yourself.Because they are communist.You have the right to protect yourself.And the bad thing about this is the cowards will obey,be a redneck ,stand up for your right to protect your home from democrat commies””””””

  16. This is scary since the Dems are pushing us closer to Communism. They want the government to know who is armed and might be a threat against Communism. Dems keep trying to whittle away at the Constitution. They know if Americans are pushed too far they may revolt. They want us defenseless and at their mercy. So many of them are dictators.
