Here we go again (and yes I know this is old news)…
Another bill to stomp on our right to bear arms, this time in the form of “fighting terrorism.” Summed up it allows the Attorney General to suspend your second amendment right if you are suspected of being involved with terrorists.
‘The Attorney General may deny the transfer of a firearm pursuant to section 922(t)(1)(B)(ii) if the Attorney General determines that the transferee is known (or appropriately suspected) to be or have been engaged in conduct constituting, in preparation for, in aid of, or related to terrorism, or providing material support thereof, and the Attorney General has a reasonable belief that the prospective transferee may use a firearm in connection with terrorism.’;
That’s right we can now declare somebody guilty based on suspicion. Here is a list of the jackasses, ahem sponsors of the bill…
Rep. Peter King [R, NY-3]
Rep. Michael Castle [R, DE-0]
Rep. Mark Kirk [R, IL-10]
Rep. Carolyn McCarthy [D, NY-4]
Rep. James Moran [D, VA-8]
Rep. Charles Rangel [D, NY-15]
Rep. Christopher Smith [R, NJ-4]
I say everybody write these guys a nice letter stating how much you love the idea of punishing people who are suspected of being involved with illegal activity. After all we can’t wait until somebody is found guilty before we bring down the hammer of justice.
