Expanded background checks failed to pass in April 2013.
According to Politico, Reid has now gone from promising to bring the bill back up “when it has the votes to pass” to “strongly advocating that the Senate revisit the background checks legislation” now.
“We in Congress, we need to put in place legislation that helps prevent these deranged, these weird, these savage people who carry out such savage acts of violence,” Reid said. “Background checks so that people who are criminals, who are deranged can’t buy a gun.” He did not say anything about the more sensible solution of getting deranged, weird, and savage people off our streets.
Breitbart News has reported the U.S. has had background checks in place since 1993. Breitbart News also reported that Nidal Hasan (Fort Hood, November 2009), Karl Halverson Pierson (Arapahoe High School gunman), Aaron Alexis (DC Navy Yard gunman), Paul Anthony Ciancia (LAX gunman), James Holmes (Aurora theater gunman), and Ivan Lopez (Fort Hood, April 2014) all passed background checks.
Background checks in no way prevented these individuals from committing crimes.
Moreover, when Reid called for expanded background checks after the April Fort Hood attack, Breitbart News pointed out that the expanded background checks are really just the same background checks the United States has now, applied to every sale instead of just retail sales. The structure and mechanism for any other type of checks doesn’t even exist.
But that does not matter, because Democrats know that if they can pass expanded background checks it will finally open the door to a federal gun registry, which has to be in place to make expanded background checks enforceable. The registry is the real goal.
As more and more details emerge about the Nevada couple who allegedly killed a pair of Las Vegas police officers before killing themselves on Sunday, it becomes clear that they were active supporters of Cliven Bundy, the controversial rancher who came to a standoff with the federal government earlier this year.
The deceased shooters, identified as Jerad and Amanda Miller, apparently have an extensive background in supporting causes like Bundy, the National Rifle Association, and fringe conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. According to police, the shooters draped a “Don’t tread on me” (Gadsden) flag over the bodies of their victims, and declared their spree as part of a “revolution.”
YouTube clips have been found to show Jerad interviewing fellow protesters at the Bundy ranch.
ThinkProgress notes that one NBC Reno news package from April happened to interview Miller himself at the ranch, in which he said:
I feel sorry for any federal agents that want to come in here and try to push us around, or something like that. I really don’t want violence toward them, but if they’re going to come bring violence to us — well, if that’s the language they want to speak, we’ll learn it.
