Kaine Pushing For More Gun Control

posted on September 9, 2015

U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., is pushing for more federal gun legislation, this time to hold sellers “criminally liable for a bad sale.” 

The mechanics of how sellers would take “reasonable affirmative steps to determine (if) the customer met federal criteria” and avoid so-called bad sales remains unclear, as Kaine’s office has only provided a summary of the proposed legislation at this point. 

Of greater concern is the senator’s assertion that “ultimately, efforts to reduce gun violence must focus on multiple solutions.” This sounds suspiciously like more intrusive scrutiny of all firearms transactions, even those between close friends and family members. The goal is just better disguised: A list of owners based on transaction monitoring.

Just ignore the fact that such a list is patently barred by the terms of the 1968 Gun Control Act precisely because it can be used to drive confiscation.
