Legislation to close the ’Charleston loophole’ reintroduced by Clyburn

Legislation to give federal investigators additional time to perform background checks and close the so-called Charleston loophole was reintroduced by James Clyburn, the House Majority Whip. Gun sales can proceed if a background check has not been completed in three days, as per the loophole. The review period would extend to 10 days due to this legislation.

It’s not a loop hole it’s a law saying the government need to either do their job in a timely and efficient manner otherwise they have no say

Let's make gun purchases on par with voting. No IDs right Dems? Both are just as constitutionally protected.

That sounds incredibly stupid. No sale should be able to continue without a background check. "Well, we were GOING to do a background check on you before hiring you as a children's teacher, but we were just so BUSY that we never got around to it. Anyway, welcome aboard." For all the talk of second amendment rights, most of these laws seem crafted to put the economic concerns of the gun maker above domestic tranquility,common defense, or the general welfare.

This would allow the government to stop doing background checks so nobody can buy a gun. But the good thing is, most of us dont buy guns from a store anyway.

"loophole". More like "We're slow, we'll make it slower, and one day it will take forever."
