Take what is perceived to be a pro-gun rights bill and mix in a bill sponsored by rabid anti-gun rights Pelosi and Shumer and the Second Amendment is further and further infringed. I believe this was likely the plan all along.
Breitbart News reported on December 4 that House Leadership plans to add gun control legislation to Rep. Richard Hudson’s (R-NC) national reciprocity bill when it comes to the floor for a vote.
Breitbart News has since learned that the legislation being eyed by House Leadership is similar to background check legislation that was pushed while Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was Speaker of the House. That push, which ultimately passed and was signed by George W. Bush, consisted of “improving” the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) but was subsequently parlayed into expanding the number and types of persons listed as prohibited from gun purchases.
Barack Obama’s Social Security gun ban was a clear example of how the Pelosi-era gun controls matured. Obama’s ban opened the door to prohibiting gun purchases by Social Security beneficiaries who required help managing their finances. The Social Security gun ban did not necessarily target harmful people, but it did threaten the gun rights of a large swath of elderly persons whose only means of defense might be the .38 Special revolver or 9mm pistol on the nightstand.
Duke University psychiatry and behavioral science professor Jeffrey Swanson described the Social Security gun ban as a method of punishing the “vulnerable” rather than the dangerous.
