Yes Guns, Again …

Two bills on gun safety that need to be passed.

Filosofa's Word

Two bills passed in the House last week and will now proceed to the Senate:

H.R. 8 would require a background check for nearly every gun sale or transfer. If signed into law, this bill would ensure that individuals already prohibited from gun possession under federal law, such as felons and domestic abusers, are not able to easily obtain firearms.  Under present law, such criminals are able to bypass background checks by purchasing a gun through unlicensed gun sellers – people who sell guns online, at gun shows, or person-to-person without a federal dealer’s license.

    Victims have rights, too. Protecting themselves must be allowed.
    I’ve always found it faster to work with state legislatures to ensure the safety of all
