Most of you younger folks won't remember this
but back in the 80's they passed The Brady Bill
which was enacted due to President Reagan's
gun attack while getting into his limousine.
Now, they're using Columbine as a scapegoat
to further restrict gun sales.
I got news for congress.
You can pass all the laws you want.
Americans will still have guns
even if they have to buy them
on the black market !!!!
The only thing congress is doing
is saying good-bye to their political
careers. I bet their new job in 2011
will include the phrase:
"You want fries with that???"
Gun Show Background Check Act of 2009 - Amends the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act to require registration of gun show promoters and to set forth the responsibilities of promoters, licensees, and other transferors. Provides that if any part of a firearm transaction takes place at a gun show, each licensed importer, manufacturer, and dealer who transfers one or more firearms to a person who is not licensed shall, within 10 days after the transfer, submit a report of the transfer to the Attorney General. Sets forth penalties for violations. Grants the Attorney General authority to enter the place of business of any gun show promoter and any place where a gun show is held, during business hours and without a showing of reasonable cause or a warrant, for purposes of examining records and the inventory of licensees conducting business to determine compliance with this Act. Increases penalties for: (1) serious record-keeping violations by licensees; and (2) violations of criminal background check requirements.
