    Looks like the GOP is getting ready to cave on private firearm transaction background checks. Please call or email your Senator and Representatives and tell them to vote against restriction of freedom and privacy invasion!

    "Ms. Collins said she had spoken several times with Mr. Manchin and was pleased that the new language would exempt from background checks the sale or exchange of guns between family members. Under the measure, records of gun sales would be kept, but Ms. Collins said she was satisfied that those records could in no way be compiled into a national gun registry, a fear gun rights groups have been voicing."

    Susan Collins of Maine back-stabs conservatives yet again. She is just another example of the incredibly poor people elected to serve in D.C. She needs to change her party affiliation to liberal fascist.

    Right those gun transactions will in no way be compiled into a national registry. We can trust the government. They are only here to help.

    You older folks will remember:

    "Your SSN will never be used as a means of identification."

    The article I read said the Republicans had agreed yo expand background checks to gun shows and internet sales. That means nothing for Oregon, internet sales already require a background check and we are already required to have background checks done at gun shows. Maybe a big deal for other states, but as I see it, it will not change anything here. Regardless I will write my legislators tonight.

    This bill will require background checks for all private sales, including face-to-face in-state sales, whether they are at a gun show or not.

    Call your Senator and Congressman! This is invasion of pricacy and restricts freedom.

    The devil will be in the details. Like Obamacare I don't believe the idiots actually have a fully fleshed out bill to propose. Well, not quite true. I think Schumer has his version which includes all gun transactions and eliminating the ATF requirement to destroy records after 6 months - ahh, that is registration isn’t it?. People like McCain and Toomey are in WA for the power and money. None of the laws they pass actually will apply to them. Their concern is placating the voting public at home so they can con their way to one more term.

    The only way to change them is put the fear of God in them that enough people oppose what the direction they're going that they change their minds or at least hesitate. Sometimes besides writing to bash the ones we can't stand, we need to write the ones showing us some hope and give them support. Paul, Rubio, Lee and even McConnell on the filibuster. We have to keep the pressure on.

    If this bill passes, I am going to make the seller of any private gun transaction I do sign a paper saying they are my cousin. Because it appears as if family sales will be exempt. Get ready for another dark stinky pile of you-know-what of a law...

    How long are you going to live in denial that there's any difference other than what they can utilize to control your mind into the delusion of there being a choice? The delusion that you are free.

    How many times until you question whether or not maybe Hulk Hogan and the Macho Man might be working together, might have similar goals? Seriously. Dude, they are every last teeny tiny bit as bad and have been and will be for the foreseeable future.

    They will keep records, but not use them for a national registry? It does not matter what party or position a person supports, no one in America trusts the politicians or government. That is one thing that truly is universal.

    How many people from regimes in the past have believed this only to be suppressed?
    Computers are wondrous tools if you have programmers who know what they are doing. It may take weeks, months or years, but a central system can be built. Look around you at the money already being thrown at building systems and how they are already part of your daily life just for example when you get gas or buy something on-line.

    You're right, my statement definitely could be misconstrued, but we both know what I meant though.. FFL = dealer
