Democrats Say No to Alerting ICE When Illegals Fail Background Checks for Weapons

 In 2nd Amendment

The hypocrisy of Democrats knows no bounds. They have pushed background checks up the yin-yang for anyone who purchases or transfers a gun. But if a a gun purchaser fails a background check, Democrats have blocked an amendment to the bill that would notify ICE for illegals and law enforcement for others. Apparently, they hate ICE more than they hate murderers.

If a person attempts to purchase a gun when they are not legally able to do so, it’s against the law. Shouldn’t law enforcement be notified? Especially for illegal aliens? Not according to Democrats.

When Republicans tried to place amendments that would ease the fees for the background checks, or help legal gun owners, all were rejected, according to Fox. Democrats view the amendments proposed by Republicans as “more loopholes.”

H.R. 8, the “Bipartisan Background Checks Act” as we previously reported, does nothing to stop criminals. The House Judiciary Committee passed the bill along party lines with a vote of 23-15. An amendment proposed by
Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL), would have required that law enforcement be notified when a gun purchaser failed the federal background check. But Democrats, in their hurry to allow illegal immigrants to do anything they want, refused to pass that amendment.

Blood on the hands of Democrats?

“Clearly, the Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee don’t care about preventing gun violence, they simply are playing politics with Americans’ Second Amendment rights. The fact that Democrats do not want law enforcement notified if an individual attempting to purchase a firearm fails a background check is truly troubling.”

“In rejecting this amendment, the Democrats have shown their true colors. It is clear they are not interested in preventing gun violence or stopping the illegal purchase of firearms, but rather they are only interested in limiting the rights of law-abiding citizens to advance their own political agenda.”

“As written now, H.R. 8 would not have prevented any of the mass shootings in Florida in recent years. The shooter in Parkland passed a background check before purchasing a firearm, the shooter at Pulse Nightclub passed a background check before purchasing a firearm, and the shooter just weeks ago that murdered five women in District 17 passed a background check before purchasing the handgun he used in the commission of that heinous crime.”  Rep Greg Steube

In fact, Gary Martin, the Aurora shooter from February 15, should not have been able to purchase or possess a gun due to a conviction for aggravated assault. Democrats are completely deaf to the truth, because they have an agenda. That agenda is to disarm law abiding gun owners and they don’t care how they do it.

    Such absolute bullshit. What gets me is that damn Gabby Giffords is there and she isn’t even in Congress anymore however still wants something to pass that would NOT have prevented her dumbass from getting shot.

    This has to be the most treasonous and seditious act yet by these damn communist traitors in our government. I hope they all go straight to hell and burn there for all eternity.

    That is how they get elected by dead people and illegals. Wake up people they are destroying our country. They should all have to set down and read the constitution of the United States , as they have no idea what it really says.

    Does any of this surprise anyone? The Dems have been the worlds biggest hypocrites for the last 120 years. It’s all about the power they can exercise over the American public.

    The Federal Gun Control Act of 1968 makes it a felony for illegal aliens to own or posess firearms. So why would they be performing a NICS background check in the first place?

    What’s the Democratic Party going to do when all there far left ideas backfire on them and nothing but criminals and democratic party run this country where shooting and killing a citizen will be legalized. This country is heading for the toilet with the socialistic ideas and plans you all have planned. If you take are gun rights away in second amendment you as a party are doing what Hitler did in Germany.

    Democrats wagging the dog saying it would not have prevented some shootings. DUH. What it is supposed to do is warn ICE and law enforcement as to when and where people that don’t pass background checks are. No doubt could help save lives. Not concerned about what they say it wouldn’t prevent. They are so full of bullshit. I used to vote Democratebwfore Trump. Never again!

    Why is anyone doing background checks on Illegals? Firstly, they should not be here, secondly it is a crime to sell a firearm to a non citizen without proper documentation. Class C Felony and that’s the ones we KNOW are here…

    Could someone please tell everyone on this site what is TREASON?
    If I’m not mistaken, would it be fair to say that the whole lot of the Democrat party is guilty?

    Why alert Ice. If they fail a background check, Just pick them up and send them back where they came from. That is why they should not be allow to even enter the country until they have at least passed the background check.

    I’m ashamed of the Democratic party with all it’s hypocrocy leaning towards socialisim. They are too dumb to see that it doesn’t work. Look at every socialist country that EVER existed and show me one that succeeded in the freedom and wealth of the USA.

    So why are illegals applying for weapon permits?
    This is why they commit so many gun related crimes but we the American people pay the price.

    I see all your comments. I feel your pain. But nothing is going to be done about it. Republicans and Democrats are all in the same bed. What did the Republicans do when Obama ran Washington like a drunk on a weekend pass? Nothing. What are they with a Repulican president in charge. Nothing. When are the American people going to realize that this bunch of losers are playing the American people for fools? They are all in it together and there is nothing we can do. They have the DOJ, FBI, CIA, all under their thumb and they are not giving up.the money nor power no matter how much they could help this country and the people by getting behind this President and help just a little.

    Like I said… Corrupt government! The constitution states: we the people must fight against the government should our government fail. ( in so many words). They work for us. We hired them. We can also remove them. Wake up and smell the coffee folks. This is our country not illegal immigrants or foreigners. We do not support a corrupt government! Either stand up and help take back our country and government or expect this and worse. It’s up to us. We the people. Not our government! Please…. Read our constitutional rights if you never have. Thank you.
