The left leaning media that has sought to destroy President Trump needs to reel in some of their venom and outright hatred for our President.  They are not helping the country by continually using the language they spew everyday.  It sometimes sounds as if they want a civil war in this country between the left and the right.

 

Tread carefully...

     Virginia:
No background checks
No licensing
No registration
No permit req’d for concealed carry of long guns
Open carry long guns & handguns


Virginia requires that anyone purchasing a gun (rifle or handgun) pass a background check (NICS).  All states have that requirement.  Only Virginia residents can purchase handguns (after the backgroud check).


Although, Virginia has over 50 gun shows a year which do NOT require a background check and anyone can buy a gun from someone selling one, person to person.


Point well taken and I do support a background check for ALL sales of guns and it is extremely simple to implement.  The NICS database must allow access to everyone for read purposes only.  After the determination that the person passes the background check you could print that out and save it as your PROOF that you made a legitimate sale.  I would also require the seller to photocopy his drivers license and another ID and any conceal permit and save those.

 

There is one other loophole.  People do die and the weapons could easily "disappear" and wind up committing a crime.  I don't know how to patch that hole.


Currently FFL License holders - legal firearms dealers - are required to retain records of to whom a firearm was sold for 20 years. 

Currently only eight states require NICS background checks for private sales of firearms.

 

Illinois law has the requirement for a FOID (Firearms Owner Identification) for all firearms owners. 

Illinois law also requires that, prior to any ownership transfer of a firearm between private parties, that the validity of the FOID of the person receiving the firearm be verified prior to the transfer.

The person transferring the firearm to another is required to keep a record for 10 years of the transfer, including identification details of the person receiving the firearm.

 

In theory the shooter had an Illinois FOID

CNN reporting that the shooter has died.

 

My thoughts and prayers for the victims and their families, and that all have a full recovery very soon.

Shooting at congressional baseball practice 'would have been a massacre' without police on hand

"Nobody would have survived without the Capitol Hill police," said Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky on CNN. "Who knows how heavily armed he was, but nobody else had a weapon. So he was just killing everyone - or would have.... It would have been a massacre without them.

Again the Police put their lives on the line .... and to think we have people that can not wait to report on a incident when our police have to use force to protect us and they try to make our Police the bad guys.
