    [FONT=&quot]Schumer Bill Includes Steps Toward
    Federal Gun Registration . . . And More

    [FONT=&quot]Recently, Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) -- who in the early 1990s was the House sponsor of the Brady Act and the federal "assault weapons" and "large" magazine ban of 1994-2004, and the ill-fated, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink "Brady II" bill -- introduced S. 436, the multi-faceted "Fix Gun Checks Act of 2011." Its simplistic and misleading title aside, this bill dispels any doubt about the goal gun control supporters have had in mind ever since they began harping about "closing the gun show loophole" more than a decade ago.[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]Schumer's "fix" bypasses the question of gun shows altogether. In fact, the term "gun show" appears nowhere in his bill. S. 436 proposes that virtually all private transfers, regardless of location, be subject to National Instant Criminal Background Check System checks. The exceptions would be extremely narrow; in many cases, even lending someone a firearm would be subject to federal regulation.[/FONT]

    It also has a provision for those who have been arrested for drug related charges. The bill says back to 5 years, and it requires the Gov. to keep accumulated records on anyone. The bill says arrested, it does not say convicted.

    The senator is an interesting fellow allright. He goes to bat for Remington so they can manufacture suppresors and other hardware not allowed by New York state law at their Ilion, NY factory, and then goes back to his old standard line on everything to do with firearms ownership. Just one more example of why there should be term limits.

    In light of recent events, maybe Schumer should worry about getting bus drivers propper backround checks, and banning high capacity busses.

    Schumer has needed to go for a long time yet the morons of NY just keep putting him back in.
    Maybe even better than Term Limits would be intellegent votors. Oh wait we get neither

    This bill has a snowball's chance in hell of passing.

    On the other hand, if some terrorists go on a big shoot'em up, then even the GOP could support gun control. But at this point I don't see any real issues making it all that far.
