THE UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECK
(Guns Save Life) – Buyer beware: When it comes to gun purchases, “Universal Background Checks” (UBC) are nothing more than a false advertising scam to defraud you of your liberty.
“Universal Background Checks” are promoted to well-meaning Americans as a means to stop bad people from buying guns. In reality, all states already require these for guns sold at stores or from gun dealers.
Universal Background Checks are nothing more than a code phrase for banning private sales of guns between law-abiding Americans.
Just like selling gold coins, Bibles or baseball cards, selling a gun to another person is 100% legal in every state. These new “universal background checks” would ban those private sales – without first asking the government’s permission and registering that sale in government databases.
Michael Bloomberg is spending tens of millions of dollars to manipulate whose who don’t know any better into supporting these “checks” in binding ballot referendums in a growing number of states.
Mark Twain once wrote that it’s easier to fool people than to convince them they have been fooled.
Bloomberg’s millions make this scheme sound harmless to the average voter, as it did to Washington State residents in 2014.
Voters there approved that measure by a 20 point margin, but when they learned about the fine print, residents were furious.
Washington State residents discovered that merely handing a gun to another person to examine it is now a felony crime. They can’t even legally even hold onto a buddy’s gun while he crosses a fence-line while hunting in the Evergreen State. Taking “possession” of a loaner handgun in a gun safety course in that state is also now a crime thanks to the newly passed law.
Let your friends know that “Universal Background Checks” are false advertising. Let them know about Bloomberg’s efforts to manipulate people. Help us help people understand the truth so we will all be better, smarter citizens.
The progressive thing to do would be to oppose racist, classist, sexist gun control laws and other government control schemes. We need to progress toward a future of freedom and not a system that reenacts past tyrannies.
