FEDERAL, STATE BILLS AIM TO CLOSE “DANGEROUS LOOPHOLE”

|| By FITSNEWS || Six days ago we reported on the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)’s belated admission that it screwed the pooch when conducting “Holy City Massacrer” Dylann Storm Roof‘s background check.

Under current law, the government has a three-day window to provide a valid reason why someone should not be allowed to purchase a gun – otherwise, they get to buy it.

The FBI had a valid reason why Roof shouldn’t have been allowed to buy a gun … but they apparently couldn’t put their finger on it in time.

This acknowledgement – conveniently made public the moment the Confederate flag came down – was transparent in more ways than one.

Anyway, in our coverage we made three predictions.  The first being …

The government will use this as an opportunity to eliminate the three-day rule – thus making all gun sales in America contingent on federal approval, which may or may not ever come.

Guess what …

In both Washington, D.C. and Columbia, S.C., legislation is being introduced to impose precisely such a mandate.  At the state level, the issue will be pushed by S.C. Rep. Beth Bernstein – who is modeling her legislation on a federal bill being introduced by U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn.

“This is one of the most dangerous loopholes we currently have in our gun laws,”  Bernstein said. “Most law-abiding citizens who purchase firearms have their background checks approved within minutes.  But when someone has a criminal record, or pending charge, it may take longer for the FBI to gather all the information to determine if that person is legally authorized to buy a gun.  We shouldn’t put an arbitrary three day deadline on something that could result in a deranged individual or criminal purchasing a gun.  If we’re going to require a background check, we should require the background check be completed.”

Makes sense, right?  Sounds like it … but not really.

Government dropped the ball in the Dylann Roof case. We repeat: Government dropped the ball in the Dylann Roof case.

Yet every time government screws up, it insists we cough up more money (and more of our liberty).

You know, so that government can then screw up even bigger (and take even more money and liberty).

Rinse. Repeat.

Of course everything’s ostensibly okay in this situation because according to Bernstein … “this bill is not a form of gun control.”

Sheesh …

Look: We completely understand if the FBI wants to take seven days – or even fourteen days – to ensure that a firearm isn’t landing in the hands of a violent criminal.   We get that.  And that’s important.

We also get that bureaucracies are slow.  After all government employees have lots of online shopping to do.  Games and music to download on their taxpayer-funded smart phones.  Pictures of their kids to upload to Facebook.

So fine: Establish a seven-day or even a fourteen-day waiting period as the new standard in such cases (pending a comprehensive delineation of the offenses which are to be subjected to the rule).   We’re fine with that.

Unlike an eternal, arbitrary delay … that makes sense.

But here’s the root reality all of this “arguing at the margins” ignores: More guns = Less crime.  As much as the gun-snatchers on the left wish it were otherwise, the reality remains: More guns = Less crime.

I am a life long Republican but I know whereof you speak. I have this soft spot on the wall of my office where , when they do stupid things, I just beat my head. Republicans like Boehner and McConnell as well as Lindsey Graham and their ilk don’t deserve to be in the party. I guess that what makes us Republicans is also what makes us so obnoxious. The term “herding cats” was coined about Republicans. I had a friend in the cattle business and we were talking once about cows. He said that when you get a load of cows in , you stand at the fence and watch them. The ones that put their heads down and start eating you keep. The one or two that start walking the fence, you might as we’ll load back on the truck and sell. I said, yes but you just loaded the Republican cows back on the truck. The ones that can think for themselves are the troublemakers. Something to think about.

The state of our government and economy, coupled with the quality of their candidates and the mood of the citizens does not bode well for Democrats next year. Government is more intrusive, the economy has not fully bounced back, and the Democrats will probably nominate a third-rate shyster as their candidate, but in the long run that, remarkably, may not be enough to bring a new regime to Washington.

True story: back in the day when I was still delivering the morning newspaper, I discovered a small briefcase at the end of a customer’s driveway. Inside were the FBI credentials and issue weapon of a local agent. Being the nice guy then that I still am today I went to the local office to discreetly return it to him.

A long time ago I was working construction at a new Federal Prison doing underground electrical work. I found a Bureau of Prisons key set in the sand. I showed it to my field Super and he had me go to planning meetings with him to see if we could determine who the owner was. Sure enough one of them looked like he had aged 20 years overnight so during a break we engaged in a conversation about hating losing things to give him a hint. He said he felt the same way and is always eternally grateful when people help him find things. A covert handshake returned the keys and the relief just washed over the guy. For a minute we were concerned that he would start crying. That deed was good for a case of Killian’s Red and Molson”s Ice every Friday for the next year left on the job.

In order to save his reputation, and not to poison our relationship, I kept it.

Wasn’t the actual charge a misdemeanor that would not have prevented him from purchasing a gun. Also, Funny how a president that commutes sentences for non violent drug offenders would try to use a non violent drug arrest as a way to restrict someone from possessing a weapon. Granted, This jack ass took that gun and murdered 9 people but at the time of the purchase he was no different than those people that Obama chose to unleash back in to society, except at that point his crimes weren’t near as severe.
I still hope that this guy is put to death sooner than later but the hypocrisy of the democratic party will never cease to amaze me.

Dylann Roof apparently had not been arrested for felony a month before he went thru background check
The Washington Post’s The Volokh Conspiracy ^ | July 11, 2015 | Eugene Volokh

Posted on ?7?/?13?/?2015? ?12?:?03?:?05? ?AM by 2ndDivisionVet

Some news accounts report that Dylan Roof had been arrested for felony drug possession a bit over a month before he bought a gun. Others disagree, saying the arrest was for a misdemeanor. Here’s what FBI Director James Comey said:

On April 11, Roof attempted to purchase a handgun from a store in West Columbia, South Carolina, a near suburb of Columbia. That day was a Saturday. On the next business day, April 13, an examiner in our West Virginia facility was assigned the case and began to process it.

Her initial check of Roof’s criminal history showed that he had been arrested in South Carolina March 1 on a felony drug charge. This charge alone is not enough to deny proceeding with the transaction. As a result, this charge required further inquiry of two potential reasons to deny the transaction. First, the person could have been convicted of a felony since the arrest. Second, the underlying facts of the arrest could show the person to be an unlawful drug user or addict.

So had Roof been arrested on a felony drug charge or not? I did some digging about that, and about federal drug law more generally, and here are my tentative conclusions….
Some violations of 44-53-370 are misdemeanors that carry less than 1 year. The FBI states that the charge would not have prevented the sale. Of the 2 other factors: 1) He did not have a felony conviction. 2) Even if it had been listed as a misdemeanor it would have given rise to believe that Roof was an unlawful drug user or addict.

Reply
tomstickler July 16, 2015 at 4:54 pm

I stand corrected on the matter of Roof being charged with a felony. His drug charge was a misdemeanor, but there was still a local error in not getting information into the background check database that would have barred his purchase.

From The AtlanticFederal laws prevent certain people from purchasing guns, including those facing charges that might result in a prison term of at least a year. Roof was charged earlier this year for the possession of a drug called Suboxone, a misdemeanor offense that did not meet that threshold, and so would not have barred him from making the purchase. But the rules also bar anyone “who is an unlawful user of or addicted to any controlled substance” from buying a gun. When he was arrested on March 1 for possession, Roof told investigators that he had used the drug, which should automatically have disqualified him. Somehow, that crucial fact never made it into the background-check database.

Cut the number to 1/10, or even lower, and you still would not be safe where you cannot be armed. Criminals like the illegal in San Francisco or the POS in Charleston will ALWAYS get their hands on a gun if they want to badly enough. Gun laws only inhibit the law-abiding, who happen to be the same ones who are NOT the problem. Even in the UK, looked to by gun grabbers as a model of gunless Utopian society at its best, you can still be shot, but more often bludgeoned, stabbed, or perhaps beaten by a gang, instead. I’ll take what we have here.

Sometimes it should be about correcting the problem not scapegoating an employee.

If this is an isolated incident involving a good employee then you treat it as such. If this is a problem employee then…….

No issue with that but if the error occurred because of procedural problems at the jail then you correct the procedures. You do not scapegoat the employee. Read the sentencing statute for drugs in SC and figure out the proper sentence. Even if everything procedurally is perfect you don’t fire a good employee over a rare mistake just to save face. If this is a problem employee then you do what is necessary. Also, The FBI has said that this charge would not have resulted in the denial of the weapon.

Let’s see how that would work in the real world. Let’s say, for the sake of argument, that a soldier raped a 14 year old girl, burned her body, and murdered her family… say in a theater of war.

How do we avoid scapegoating the soldier who raped and murdered while correcting the failure of the procedures that failed him?

Do I have to explain this *again*?

If the Republicans can scare the shit out of their constituents, and insist that no one is safe unless everyone is under surveillance, and that anyone who challenges authority is a terrorist, or worse, a liberal – then the common knowledge that they are corrupt and don’t allow dissent will eliminate any remaining resistance to the transfer of wealth from the middle class to the richest men in America.

Nothing enhances reliance and obedience to authority more than a fully armed population openly carrying weapons with the safety off and a bullet in the chamber… and a federal, state and city police force equipped to deal with that situation.

The only problem I see here is that the Charleston church goers had none.

I think I mentioned the conspicuous absence of deacons covering new members with automatic weapons. I’d also like to mention the curiously missing sniper nest in an upper alcove.

The optics seem to indicate the church was at fault for not providing proper sniper support.

I predict a lawsuit.

Nobody, but you, has called Roof innocent or tried to defend him in any way. But, I’m sure that liberal defense attorneys will be lining up to blame mental illness, society, or a bad childhood for his actions. Not to mention the gun, the gun must be blamed.

Can’t wait to see my drug dealer for my new auto rifle.

So I can’t buy fucking cold medicine because of a TV show about a guy cooking meth in a trailer, but you want people to be able to roll up to a gun store and just walk away with a glock no questions asked?

You mean you didn’t fill up your garage with ephedrine before it was taken off the market?

Nah, I was too busy hoarding AR 15s for “hunting” cause they are easier to get than sudafed.

Gotta get priorities right you know.

Yeah.. well I didn’t either. There was no room…. before Limbaugh’s prescription shopping was a “thing,” I filled up my garage with desoxyn… it’s worth quite a bit more now..

with that, I can get all the guns I want.

…but I have to run around in the shower to get wet.

I understand that the Obama- ATF is one of the leading gun suppliers in the Midwest. They willing provide firearms to felons and other prohibited persons.

Iowa grants gun permits to the blind.

Tennessee, Arizona, Georgia, and Virginia explicitly allow loaded guns in bars.

Being blind and drunk with a loaded gun is legal, but I must point out that no one is “willing” to provide firearms to felons and other prohibited persons.

No one.

Even Republicans who won’t lift a finger to help, and want to PREVENT background checks, don’t want *that*, but, since they changed their opposition to open carry and their previous support for background checks, they may eventually include felons and the other prohibited persons.

SC allows CPW carry in bars as long as the permitted person is not drinking alcohol.

euwe max July 17, 2015 at 10:16 am

Pointless restriction.

Yes.
But, TBG also wants you to be able to buy cold medicine.

I agree with waiting periods for gun purchases. We already have waiting periods for abortion here, and that is another right in the Constitution. So, don’t come with that rightist claptrap.

Please point out the abortion amendment? Did I miss the 28th amendment, the right of the people to kill and dispose of unwanted children shall not be infringed?

Equal protection clause. 14th Amendment Section 1.

Doesn’t specify abortion. Agreed it can be interpreted that way in conjunction with the 4th amendment, but it’s not spelled out. The 2nd amendment is much clearer.
