New Proposal From House Dems Would Force FBI To Keep Data From Incomplete Gun Background Checks

Published

When it comes to violating the second amendment rights of ordinary citizens, the Democratic Party is full of all kinds of ideas, the kind of ideas that would make the Founding Fathers roll over in their graves.

A new bill conjured up by Rep. Jimmy Panetta, an ally of House Democratic leadership, would force the FBI to stop their current practice of purging gun purchase background checks if those checks happen to be incomplete.

Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:

The proposal would require the agency to keep incomplete background checks on file past 88 days, which Panetta said would help stop guns from falling into the hands of people who couldn’t otherwise get through government screening.

“As a former prosecutor, I know the importance of keeping firearms out of the hands of dangerous people,” said Panetta, 50, first elected to the House in 2016 after being a Monterey County, California, prosecutor. “My bill will help in that effort by ensuring people who should not have a firearm don’t get a firearm because of a bureaucratic lapse.”

Not everyone is onboard with the measure.

Mark Oliva, spokesman for the National Shooting Sports Foundation, stated that the Democratic proposal could potentially lead to the creation of a national gun registry.

“If they’re going to maintain records beyond the 89 days that have not been resolved then, now, this is creating a registry of those people who may or may not have been able to purchase a firearm in case that went through,” Oliva told the Washington Examiner.

Oliva also noted that dealers with federal firearms licenses rely on the background check system to work as intended. If there is more information in the system that is not purged and is not valid information, dealers will continue to work with a flawed system that has become clogged with more error-filled information.

“I think the important thing here to remember is that when an FFL gets a delay or gets a delayed notification from the FBI, there’s nothing that tells them, ‘Hey, delay this. And then they get no response back after, you know, three days.”

The second amendment was put in the Bill of Rights by the Founders of our great nation because they feared the government would become oppressive in the future, growing and bloating beyond the bounds set by the Constitution — it has — and then stripping citizens of their guns so that they had no means to fight back against whatever the government was trying to push on them.

And that’s exactly what Democrats are attempting to do as we speak. The very nightmares our Founders had about bloated government once again oppressing the people is becoming a reality in front of our eyes.

Tyranny is the reason the second amendment exists. Without having weapons of our own, we have no means to defend our liberty.

Manhunt Ensues After Possible Ex-Cop Commits Massacre in Texas

Authorities are telling residents to shelter in place.

The citizens of Austin, Texas are on high alert Sunday afternoon after a massacre left at least three people dead with the suspect still at large as of this writing. Law enforcement has identified the suspected killer, and are scouring the city looking for clues. A massive multi-agency manhunt including the FBI and U.S. Marshals is underway in Austin for an armed suspect wanted for killing at least three people near an apartment complex late Sunday morning. Austin police said that the three lifeless bodies were all adults, including two Hispanic females, and one Black male. They said they believe the suspect is Stephen Nicholas Broderick, who is possibly a former law enforcement officer charged with sexual assault of a child last summer. Austin’s KXAN, citing an arrest affidavit, reported last June that the Travis County Sheriff’s Office detective was on administrative leave following an arrest for allegations of sexual assault. Police had some very specific ideas of what could come next in the case. The Austin Police Department said the suspect was still at large as of approximately 2:30 p.m. local time and is considered armed and dangerous. Police have urged everyone nearby to shelter in place and report suspicious activity. “We are concerned he might possibly take a hostage and be himself sheltered somewhere waiting for us to leave,” Interim Austin Police Chief Joseph Chacon said during a news conference Sunday afternoon. Police said that the victims were known to Broderick, but did not elaborate any further.

Biden Team Sends Stern Threat to Russia Over Navalny’s Health

This is just the latest escalation in the war of words between these two nations.

Published

While every nation on this planet likely harbors some sort of terrible secret, or some evil underpinnings, no one plays the role of international bad guy quite like Russia does. The enormous nation has no real qualms about the world knowing its business, and Vladimir Putin has held onto power for as long as he as by doing the bare minimum required to keep him from being called a dictator. Beyond that, the nation appears fond of strongman-shenanigans like poisoning and jailing dissident journalists like Alexi Navalny, who is on death’s door in a Russian prison camp. If he dies, US President Joe Biden says that the Kremlin will pay the price. President Joe Biden’s national security adviser warned Sunday that there will be repercussions for Russia if Putin critic Alexei Navalny dies, amid reports that his health is rapidly deteriorating in prison. “We have communicated to the Russian government that what happens to Mr. Navalny in their custody is their responsibility and they will be held accountable by the international community,” Jake Sullivan said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Biden has had a fairly poor relationship with Russia doing his first few months in office, with the two nations issuing not-so-subtle statements and threats in each others’ direction.
