While Liberals claim the NRA controls the GOP, Conservatives are disappointed to learn of bipartisan gun control.
The prospect of bipartisan gun control raises all sorts of fears. In the case of the Fix NICS Act, states are rewarded or punished by the Federal government for complying or not complying with Federal wishes. But how is it Constitutional to claim states have control over these matters but then “encourage” them in this way to do what the Federal Government wants?
The Washington Examiner reports, “Senators ‘super close’ to bipartisan gun control deal.”
Sens. John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Chris Murphy, D-Conn., appear to be near a deal that would improve background checks on gun sales.
The legislation, which is expected to be officially unveiled Thursday, would encourage states to bolster the National Instate Criminal Background Check system to certify all background check information is uploaded, according to NBC News.
The bill, known as the “Fix NICS Act,” would provide options to assist uploading required records, such as requesting federal agencies and states create plans to upload and verify criminal and mental health records that would prevent inappropriate purchasers from buying a weapon.
