Sen. Kaine Pushing Bill To Make Gun Sellers Criminally Liable For Misuse Of Guns

Now, Democrats want to hold gun sellers accountable for the actions of those they sell guns to. This would extend to private sales as well. Democratic Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia is pushing a bill that would require more accountability from gun sellers. So, if someone buys a gun from you and commits a crime, you could go to jail. That’s impressive fascism. This bill is meant to apply gun control by stopping people and businesses from selling guns to others out of fear of being caught in that trap. It will also force a gun registry as everyone would be reported on. This is just plain evil and unconstitutional in the extreme. It’s clever though… it has a nice sounding name: the Responsible Transfer of Firearms Act. More name games. This is the government once again trying to eliminate guns one way or another.

Misuse of Guns

From Breitbart:

Less than two weeks after a heinous attack in which a Virginia TV reporter and and her cameraman were killed by a gunman who passed a a background check for his firearm, Senator Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) is pushing legislation to make “gun sellers” criminally liable for the misuse of guns they sell.

The bill is designed to “raise the bar” and require more “accountability” on the part of gun sellers. It also expands the federal net to open the door to criminal liability charges against private sellers too.

According to The Roanoke Times, Kaine’s bill is titled the Responsible Transfer of Firearms Act. It “would make gun sellers criminally liable for a bad sale if they didn’t take reasonable, affirmative steps to determine the customer met federal criteria.”

In statement accompanying the legislation’s introduction Kaine said:

As recent tragedies in Virginia and across the country have shown, the gun laws in our country have done little to stem senseless gun violence. These numbing incidents in urban, rural and suburban communities are made worse by the lack of accountability in those instances where the tragedy might have been prevented.

Breitbart News has previously reported that vast majority of public attackers and alleged attackers pass background checks for their guns. These include Vester Lee Flanagan (Virginia), John Russell Houser (Lafayette), Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez (Chattanooga), Dylann Roof (Charleston), Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi (Garland), Jared and Amanda Miller (Las Vegas), Elliot Rodger (Santa Barabara), Ivan Lopez (Fort Hood 2014), Darion Marcus Aguilar (Maryland mall), Karl Halverson Pierson (Arapahoe High School), Paul Ciancia (LAX), Andrew John Engeldinger (Minneapolis), Aaron Alexis (DC Navy Yard), Tennis Melvin Maynard (West Virginia), Wade Michael Page (Sikh Temple), James Holmes (Aurora theater), Jared Loughner (Tucson), Nidal Hasan (Fort Hood 2009), Jiverly Wong (Binghamton), Seung-Hui Cho (Virginia Tech), Naveed Haq (Seattle), and Mark Barton (Atlanta).

Yet although background checks are federally mandated and federally conducted at all retail gun outlets in the U.S., Kaine wants to hold the gun seller responsible for what a buyer does when he or she exits the store with a gun the FBI cleared them to purchase.

What we need are fewer background checks and fewer gun laws and regulations. Everyone should be armed. It’s a no-brainer with the way things are today. But under a tyrannical government, you always have fascistic trolls trying to quell the masses and control them. This is yet another move that wouldn’t stop crime – it would increase it as more and more people would have no way to defend themselves. The Liberals try to tax guns out of existence, force gun registries where everyone is tracked by the state, regulate guns into oblivion, pass laws banning them and if all those fail, they buy up guns and ammo causing shortages. All this does is make more and more people buy more and more guns. This year has seen the highest number of gun purchases ever and it is because of Barack Obama, his Marxist policies and the attempts, such as this one, to take our Second Amendment rights away. Nothing they do will disarm America – come and take them if you can.
