Are Georgia Voters Experiencing Buyers Remorse Yet?

 From the Epoch Times comes a report that the House has passed gun control bill expanding background checks on firearm sales.

As I have explained before, dealers are required to perform a background check on everyone who buys a gun from them either at their place of business, or a gun shows. Further, if you buy the weapon online or out of state, you must have it shipped to a local dealer, who will then perform a background check before turning the gun over to you. It seems to be pretty covered, doesn't it? The only way to obtain a weapon without a background check is if you buy it on the black market, which is what criminals do.

But, there is one way, and that[s to buy from a private seller. Private sales, it goes without saying, but I will say it anyway, usually go to family members and friends. You know these people well, so background checks are not needed. But the gun grabbers will not let gun go without getting their permission.

According to a summary of the legislation, it will “utilize the current background checks process in the United States to ensure individuals prohibited from gun possession are not able to obtain firearms.” Currently, any firearm purchased at a retail store or online has to go through a background check and has to involve a licensed firearms dealer with a federal firearms license, known as an FFL. Specifically, H.R. 8 would also require background checks for private sales.
So, if the Senate also passes this bill, you won't even sell your own property without government permission. There are just enough anti-gun Senators that they will likely pass it. And don't count on the Supremes sticking up for you. I wonder if Georgia voters are experiencing buyers remorse yet?
