House slated to vote on most significant gun control bill in years

The House is slated to vote Wednesday on landmark legislation to require universal background checks for gun sales. It marks the most significant gun control vote in years after the Senate failed in 2013 to pass a similar bipartisan legislation. House Democrats plan to follow Wednesday’s vote with another on Thursday for a bill to lengthen the review period for background checks.

Why do the Democrats think gun laws stop criminals?!? Criminals by their literal definition do not follow laws! Good guys follow laws and you are only stopping good guys from being able to stop bad guys! If you don’t believe that a good guy with a gun can stop a bad guy with a gun then I suggest you do your research because the media doesn’t tell anyone about the good guys saving people from bad guys you only hear about bad guys killing innocents because they have an agenda to push! Wake up they (the federal government) are trying to take our rights away so they can have their way with this country because once our guns are gone our right to free speech will be gone and then they’ll be able to do what they want and no one will be able to say or stop them from complete totalitarian regime!!!!

They're always one law short, huh? I'm sure this will be the final solution to all gun violence. When gangsters and lunatics get word of this legislation, they will lay down their arms and the people of this great nation will finally live in peace and harmony. After all, criminals and crazies follow the law to the letter.

My new governor is about to pass a universal background check law. She blasted opponents of the bill yesterday saying they are "fearmongering". Funny that the person using fear to try to get us to give up our constitutional rights accuses all her opponents of exactly what shes doing. if that isnt the AR-15 calling the rifle black, I dont know what is.

Nancy Pelosi said: “It’s all about the children, the children, the children." Oh my think of the children! Except it's it not.

This is bad, and very very stupid. Another unenforceable law. It will get that guy though that borrowed his friends gun for hunting and ended up shooting a gun that broke into his house. Thank goodness that killer is off the streets.

Guys you shouldn’t worry. All of the Dems attempts will be just failures in their part. As long as the Senate remains (republicans control it), there is no way for major gun control bill to be passed. Also it will meet boat load of lawsuits.

I wonder sometimes if Democrats are completely ignorant, or do they go out of their way making up laws that will have ZERO effect on gun crime and only punish law abiding citizens. Why not put more emphasis on enforcing current laws? That's right... it not REALLY about the children or even effect gun laws, it's all about looking busy and virtue signalling to a niave low information voter base.

Still waiting for the lawsuits in Washington State to have an impact on the unconstitutional laws passed last Nov.
