One of the very touchy, slippery and ambiguous topics for a true believer of the Second Amendment like myself is what about convicted felons, people who are mentally ill who for other reasons are disqualified from gun purchasing by the FBI background check system.
The Second Amendment never addresses these issues so how do we handle them? That’s the crack in the door that gun control advocates use to restrict as many people as possible from exercising their Second Amendment rights.
That question has also been raised by the Air Force’s not reporting Devin Kelley to the FBI, so now the FBI is reviewing thousands of background checks and ordering gun seizures to those who were originally approved but should not have been.
(Keep and Bear) – One of the nation’s oldest, and most raucous debates has been in regard to our all-important 2nd Amendment and how it applies to this day and age.
If you ask a liberal, (which we don’t suggest actually doing), you’ll receive a range of answers on the subject spanning the entire gamut of leftist sentiment. Some will say that only hunting rifles are truly okay, others will tell you that all firearms should be confiscated from private citizens leaving only the police and military to protect our nation from violent threats.
Of course, we don’t need to tell you, dear reader, how that sort of plan would work out.
Every time our nation suffers an unforeseen tragedy involving a firearm, the debate heats back up with democrats immediately commandeering the tragedy and exploiting the story to call for stricter gun control laws. In recent years, our nation has become keen to true phenomenons behind mass shootings, however, with mental illness and criminality arriving front and center to help debunk the liberal idea that less guns is a good idea…
When the government seizes someone guns, the gun owner is rarely reimbursed for the money they paid for the guns. In this case, if the people originally passed the FBI background check and then legally purchased a firearm, shouldn’t the FBI at least be reimbursing people for the money they paid out for the gun(s), which can come to many hundreds and thousands of dollars.
