The Senate ‘gun safety’ bill is worse even than I thought
By Andrea Widburg

Yesterday, I swiftly perused the compromise “gun safety” bill that the Democrats and RINOs crafted. My conclusion was that most of the provisions were useless and that it was unlikely that face-saving constitutional demands in the provision funding red flag laws would matter given that judges would invariably rule for seizing guns just to be on the safe side. The Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) scrutinized the bill more closely and, with its deep knowledge of existing gun policies and their effectiveness (or risk to gun owners) rendered its verdict: “This bill chills the right to keep and bear arms....”

Because the FPC wants its message to get out there, I don’t feel like a cheat simply blocking and quoting its list of problems with the bill:


    Enhanced background checks

        Seeking juvenile records for purchasers under 21 requires the engagement of numerous agencies and will cause delays to access of the right
        Adding 7 days from the current 3 for National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) to respond for just this one population is unequal treatment under the law based solely on age

    Red Flag Laws

        Incentivizes local disarmament proceedings, of which many states currently employ secret ex-parte hearings
        Calls only for standards equivalent only to civil court
        For all the bluster in the measure about protecting due process and the constitutional rights of the subjects of the hearings during the "appropriate phase", it implies that states will still be able to hold secret ex-parte hearings to deprive the People of their rights.
        Entitles the subject to an attorney “at the appropriate phase”, but it must be at the subject's expense

Don't forget 10% for the "Big Guy"
