Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and her gun grabbers just passed H.R. 8, the “Bipartisan Background Checks Act,” on Wednesday. This bill mandates “universal background checks” and abolishes private firearms sales by default. It turns interstate commerce laws upside down, is replete with “red flag” guilty-first propositions, and even more alarmingly will establish a national gun registry by DEFAULT. Failure to comply is punishable by up to a year in jail or a maximum fine of $100,000. The 2nd Amendment really is under assault…British style.

Nancy Pelosi and her allies just passed H.R. 8, the “Bipartisan Background Checks Act”on Wednesday (and with a cheesy-comfy name like “Bipartisan”, you know it’s gotta be dangerous). Mandating that nearly every firearm transfer in the US be done via a “licensed” firearms dealer, which, as Jacob Sullum reports for Reason, would mandate a federal background check in almost every case.
There are only a couple absurd exceptions, exceptions that would rarely be workable for most people in the real world.
