Bi-partisan background check bill introduced in U.S. House

It’s been a few years since a bi-partisan attempt at passing a universal background check system has seen the light of day, but a coalition within the U.S. House of Representatives comprised of members from both sides of the aisle is giving it another shot.

A bill was introduced in the House on Wednesday which aims to close background check loopholes in the purchase of firearms in the country, officials said.
Written by representatives Pete King, R-New York, and Mike Thompson, D-California, HR 1217 will expand the background check system to encompass the commercial sale of all firearms, including those sold at gun shows, through the Internet and in classified ads.

An article referencing the NRA’s involvement in that effort quickly drew vitriol from the gun rights group the same day it was published.

“NRA does NOT support universal background checks and is not working with Manchin to implement this type of legislation. NRA opposes, and will continue to oppose, universal background checks and registration schemes,” The NRA’s Chris Cox wrote in a 2013 statement.

Written by representatives Pete King, R-New York, DamnYankee-Rino
and Mike Thompson, D-California, HR 1217
The new background check legislation was co-authored by a bipartisan House coalition made up of representatives
Mike Fitzpatrick, R-Pennsylvania, DamnYankee-Rino

Pat Meehan, R-Pennsylvania, DamnYankee-Rino

Bob Dold, R-Illinois, DamnYankee-Rino

Bennie Thompson, D-Mississippi,
Elizabeth Esty, D-Connecticut
and Kathleen Rice, D-New York

I wonder if the DamnYankee states of PA, NY, and IL might replace these anti-gun Rinos next year?

The text of the bill is here: H.R.1565 - Public Safety and Second Amendment Rights Protection Act of 2013.

That's last year's bill...

God this **** pisses me off. All of those things are already taking place. All commercial sales already go through a background check, I wish these *******s would atleast be honest about they are trying to screw us.

We already have this passed today in the Oregon State Legislature. Do NOT
be confused...this is back door Universal Gun Registration. The objective
here is to make EVERY SINGLE GUN registered as the bill even demands you
lug a firearm you got from your relations or as a gift...or borrow for a hunting
trip...into an FFL to be registered with the Oregon State Police. The Oregon
State Police have already been caught trolling through the registration
paperwork and harassing law abiding folk... Politicians telling you it is for
public safety are ""feeding you a line..." as my Dad says.
