High-profile gun violence has historically renewed legislative interest in the cause of gun control, and the shootings of twenty people in Tucson, Arizona is no exception — only this time, the measures face steeper hurdles than before.

Rep. Gary Ackerman, a Democrat from New York, is the third congressman to propose a gun control bill in the wake of the murders on Saturday. (The other two are also New Yorkers.)

His bill seeks to accomplish a goal other gun control advocates have tried and failed to do in recent years: close the “fire sale loophole,” which permits unauthorized gun dealers to sell firearms at gun shows and allows buyers to purchase them without an otherwise mandatory FBI background check.

    THE GUN LOVERS LOGIC: GUNS DON’T KILL PEOPLE, SO CLEARLY THEY WANT PEOPLE TO CARRY GUNS AND EXPLOSIVES TO AIRPLANES (EXPLOSIVES DON’T KILL PEOPLE, PEOPLE USE THEM TO KILL). A 22 YEARS LONER GOES TO A WALMART AND BUYS WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION BECAUSE THIS IS HIS RIGHT BY GOD. TOO BAD FOR THE INNOCENT PEOPLE AND THE LITTLE GIRL. THE GUN LOVERS TWISTED LOGIC: LETS ALL CARRY EXPLOSIVES TO AIRPLANES.

      The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution is the part of the United States Bill of Rights that protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms. It was adopted on December 15, 1791, along with the rest of the Bill of Rights.

      As passed by the Congress:

      A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

      As ratified by the States:

      A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

      Can’t take guns away just because they can get into the hands of crazy people. Take guns away and the criminals and government will be the only ones with them. This system does not work as you can see from what is going on in Mexico where guns are illegal.
