Cram Your Background-Check Plan Up Your Loophole, Joe



Funny how the gun-grabbers never make a run at these loopholes, isn’t it?

Every election season, gun-grabbers remember that private gun transfers are still perfectly legal after 250 years.

Thing is, they know as well as we do that private gun sales don’t cause crimes committed with guns. They know as well as we do that felons and prohibited persons get their guns by stealing them or via straw-purchase schemes, not by buying Grandpa’s old 20-gauge from his grieving widow. They know that making private gun sales illegal won’t change anything about the way criminals do business. It will, however, make it much easier to arrest and prosecute the law-abiding, because law-abiding citizens hold still and don’t try to shoot back the way gangbangers do. They know as well as we do that this is no error–that’s the point. So does the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, which is here with all the details.


The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms denounced the White House plan to expand background checks to close supposed “loopholes” that the Biden administration claims exist in private gun sales and transfers.

The announcement is yet another step by Joe Biden to eviscerate Americans’ right to keep and bear arms that is guaranteed by the Second Amendment, the group stated.

“This is another misguided policy that will not accomplish what the administration claims its goal is,” said CCRKBA Managing Director Andrew Gottlieb. “It will not reduce violent crime or make anyone safer. It is an infringement on the rights of honest citizens and a distraction from policies that target criminals.”

The administration aims to close so-called “loopholes” in the background check system, but CCRKBA says these policies only create more red tape and expense for gun owners without addressing the real problems.

“Piling more restrictions and costs on law-abiding Americans will not curb violence,” Gottlieb said. “Violent criminals don’t follow any rules. They do not bother with background checks. This administration should instead focus its efforts on prosecuting those who break existing laws.”

Under current law, background checks are required for all gun sales through licensed dealers, even at gun shows and online. The Biden plan would require background checks for all private sales and transfers, including those between family and friends, and in some cases even loans and gifts. There is no evidence such a plan would reduce violence, Gottlieb said.

The administration is also asking Congress for a 33 percent budget increase for the ATF in 2025 to hire more agents and inspectors. This would increase their budget to $2 billion dollars per year.
