As the 2015 Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) show winds down today in Las Vegas, a new battle front over so-called “universal background checks” (UBC) is shaping up in Arizona, and it is all-too-familiar to Second Amendment advocates like Alan Gottlieb.
Freshman Democrat State Rep. Randall Friese has introduced legislation to require background checks on private transfers of firearms. If the storyline unfolds the way it did in Gottlieb’s home state of Washington, and here in Nevada, the proposals will fall short in the legislature, and then there will be a push by the gun prohibition lobby to pass a citizen initiative.
Anti-gunners passed Initiative 594 last fall in the Evergreen State, and it’s evident they took notes. Nevada first went through the legislative process, and now gun owners there are facing an increasingly well-oiled effort to push such checks, with backing from anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg and other wealthy elitists.
It doesn’t take much imagination to figure out that somebody was taking notes during the Washington campaign. With money as a weapon, Second Amendment activists are up against what appears to be a spreading juggernaut.
FK – When are ‘pro-gun'(should be pro Human Liberty because guns are just tools we’ll soon have to use to restore Liberty) ‘activists’ going to get tired of re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic and start preparing for what will be required?
FK – Maybe it’ll be in prison and easy to find when it’s time for the war crimes trials and executions.
