    Dems debut bills to mandate insurance for gun owners, extend background checks

    A New York Democrat on Capitol Hill has resurrected legislation to expand the country’s background check system and force gun owners to carry liability insurance. U.S. Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney introduced a trio of bills this week — The Gun Show Loophole Closing Act, the NICS Review Act, and the Firearm Risk Protection Act — with the hopes that, with the Dems back in the driver’s seat of the House, 2019 could see the gun control package advanced.

    “The group of bills I am introducing today will save lives and promote safe gun ownership by closing the gun show loophole, giving law enforcement the tools it needs to go after fraudulent gun purchases by keeping National Instant Background Checks on record for 90 days instead of just the 24 hours currently allowed, and requiring gun owners to carry liability insurance just as we do car owners,” Maloney said.

    The gun show bill, filed as H.R. 820, would, according to Maloney’s office, “give ATF the resources and authority it needs to ensure that gun shows do not facilitate dangerous gun sales,” through the use of background checks on all gun transfers at such events. However,

    They are clueless, and they are forcing an issue that can get ugly, gun owners are not helpless newborns, and they will fight back.
    Hamlet and King Lear are two of the best works of literature that there is. And in American elite universities, Shakespeare is being reviled, and that is a new evil.
    America cannot go on being free, when it is always taking the foundations out. If Shakespeare is the enemy, then I am the enemy too, because I love the guys works.

    Unfortunately, the Good Guys lost the last election in NY, CT, ME, and the US House, I'm sure there are others.
    How? Not enough went to the voting booth.
