Washington, D.C. – Democrats have wasted no time in introducing new control bills in the new Congressional session.
Freshman Democrat Representatives have made gun-control a high priority for this session of Congress. Nancy Pelosi pledged to make gun control an express concern in exchange for the support of some of the farther left Democratic representatives. In the previous session Republicans controlled the House of Representatives and prevented anti-gun bills from making it to the floor.
Surrounded by gun control advocates, Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ) introduced a new universal background bill. The bill will require background checks for every firearm sold in the country. This requirement will also cover private gun sales. Democrats incorrectly refer to private gun sales as the “gun show loophole.”
Giffords was chosen to unveil the new anti-gun legislation because a mentally deranged man shot her at an event held in a parking lot of a Tuscon, Arizona Safeway. Giffords became very anti-gun after the shooting incident. She founded the anti-gun group giffords.org after being shot.
