Sales and transfers of firearms in peril with “universal registration”
Former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords will be back on Capitol Hill today diligently working to expand criminal background checks on all firearms sales.
Last session similar legislation failed to get a hearing in the U.S. House.
Currently, stores selling firearms check purchasers with designated law enforcement agencies to ensure the customer doesn’t have a criminal history. Democrat lawmakers want to expand such checks to private transfers, sales and those at gun shows.
The National Rifle Association, a Second Amendment protection organization, firmly opposes such restrictions, noting that many people convicted of crimes involving guns obtained them through theft, making ‘straw’ purchases, or on the black market, entirely evading background checks.

After she was severely wounded in 2011, Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly founded Americans for Responsible Solutions, an organization that advocates for stricter gun laws —- while hypocritically exempting themselves. Just two years ago we posted “What’s this? Gabby’s hubby buys “assault weapon?”
A leading proponent of restricting gun ownership and the Second Amendment Rights of others, the duplicitous Kelly was busted making his own gun purchases — including an AR-15, which he disparages as an “assault rifle”–– and claims should be disallowed for Americans to own. Kelly has previously claimed the purpose of such weapons is “to kill a lot of people very quickly,” and criticized such products as “too readily available.”
Mark Kelly was photographed at 3:30 pm on the afternoon of March 5, 2013 at Diamondback Police Supply, 170 S. Kolb Street, Tucson, AZ, making his purchases, including “high capacity” magazines and a .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol.
Seeing Red AZ has previously exposed other liberal hypocrites who desire to restrict our ability for self protection while ensuring their own — even having concealed carry permits.
The Second Amendment is about much more than simply carrying concealed, hunting, or sport shooting. Our right to keep and bear arms is a bulwark against tyranny. The U.S. Constitution and 44 States have Constitutional provisions enumerating the Individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
