Over the objections of the National Rifle Association, a state Senate panel Monday unanimously signed off on a far-reaching measure that would close the gun-show “loophole,” create a record-keeping system for private gun sales and set aside $5 million to establish a “statewide strategy for violence prevention.” The proposal (SB 7028) is a priority of Senate President Bill Galvano, R-Bradenton, as evidenced by the Senate Infrastructure and Security Committee’s consideration and passage of the measure the day before the 2020 legislative session begins.

Don't believe in 'slippery slopes?
No word on whether a CWP would exempt buyers from the 3 day wait as it does now. The so called 'loophole' purchase is often conducted between people who live hundreds of miles away. How would that work, or is that the idea?

This isn't slippery slope. This is straight-out gun registration. The only reason to register them is to take them away from the peasants.

The vast majority of gun sales at gun shows DO BACKGROUND CHECKS. If you are in the business, you have to have a license and if you have a license you have to do background checks. If you only have a few guns to sell you'd be crazy to rent a table at a gun show, it would take away all your profit. What isn't changing (as far as I can tell) is the provision for selling guns to family or neighbors. Private transactions are not required to do background checks (yet).

They are not closing a gun show loophole. They are interjecting government between two private parties wishing to engage in a transaction. Step one, do so in certain places to cover gun shows. Predicted step two, extend that to all places. Perhaps more of an infringement on individual rights is the requirement that in households where minors under 18 could have access firearms must be "securely stored."

Insult to injury: taxpayers are also forced to pay for a hyper liberal slush fund in the form of a statewide strategy for violence prevention. I have never heard of such an amorphous waste of taxpayer money.

Never, ever any regulation or law to punish gun crimes. NEVER. Only restrictions on citizens with NO criminal record. Leftist scum love gun crime. The more horrendous the crime the better for them to fan the panic the gun porn media create. Then some protected elitist 'lawmaker' passes one more infringement on our fundamental right of self defense and beats their chest as a loving hero for future victims. All the while their disarming of citizens leads to more murder, rape and robbery.

There is NO "gun show loophole", all sales at gun shows follow exactly the same laws as sales NOT at gun shows. 100% of new gun sales are done with a background check, at a gun show or at a dealer's place of business. Private sales are private sales, whether at a gun show or not. So far, no requirement for federal registration for private gun sales. If private gun sales are banned, then only criminals will have private gun sales and we will have the beginning of a national gun registration system. Gun registration is a required prerequisite for gun confiscation. And gun confiscation is EXACTLY what all of this has ALWAYS been about. The end game has always been confiscation. There is absolutely no doubt, and now many of them have stopped lying and admitted it.

#3: first paragraph - 'private sales'. Doesn' say family and friends are exempt, but when you consider the purpose of the new law I doubt they will be.

#6, there are about 20,000 gun laws in the USA, and some of them do propose extra penalties to punish gun use. But, sad to say, most prosecutors fail to ask for the extra sentencing for using a gun, so the law is neutered by leftist prosecutors.

In the article are a list of attached regulations. You must lock up your weapons at home to keep them safe from the mentally unbalanced. As if my family is suspicious. And more. This loophole stuff is the tip of the iceberg.

A WPIX cameraman was fired after a Muslim anchorwoman and other station staffers falsely accused him of racism and Islamaphobia, he claims in an explosive lawsuit. “I feel heartbroken and morally and professionally violated,” Ken Evseroff, 52, told The Post. In October 2018 Narmeen Choudhury, who had worked with Evseroff in the field as a reporter when not filling in on the anchor desk, first complained to the station’s human resources department about Evseroff. The Queens-born Choudhury, 38, a Muslim Bangladeshi-American and mother of two who has worked at WPIX since 2011, claimed the white Evseroff made “rude, racist and/or sexist comments” during nearly every assignment they

Never put a time limit on your doomsday predictions. This rookie error has been the undoing of charlatans, cultists and false prophets through the ages, from Martin of Tours, who predicted that the world would end by 400, to Harold Camping, who claimed it would happen on Sept. 6, 1994. The latest poor saps to join the oops club are the authorities in charge of Montana’s Glacier National Park. For years they’ve been warning on their visitor signs that their main attraction, the glaciers, would be “gone by 2020.” Instead, it’s those misleading signs that have had to go, because 2020 has now arrived and those pesky glaciers

Don’t let them find out about ‘Wall’ Street. The City Council’s Committee on Immigration is mulling a bill that would bar municipal government workers from using the terms “alien,” “illegal alien” or “illegal immigrant” in official documents. “I introduced this bill because words matter and the language we use or choose to use has power and consequences,” said Councilman Francisco Moya (D-Queens) — who first floated the proposal late last month — in a Thursday committee hearing. The legislation proposes the term “noncitizen” as an alternative.

These are the two dozen new photos revealing Bill Clinton’s 2002 trip to Africa aboard Jeffrey Epstein’s “Lolita Express” — with other celebrities and an Epstein accuser in tow. The slew of images, obtained Thursday by The Post, show a smiling Clinton posing alongside Epstein’s alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell and Chauntae Davies, the masseuse who has accused the dead financier of rape. The humanitarian trip, which Davies says was hosted by Clinton’s foundation, also included actors Kevin Spacey and Chris Tucker, who appear in shots with Davies and Maxwell.

When Sen. Mazie Hirono suggested Americans should "believe in climate change as though it's a religion," some enterprising Canadians were listening. A website called Shrine On is among the many selling Greta Thunberg prayer candles, so supplicants can ask the climate gods to stop destroying us or something. "Pray to Saint Greta Thunberg, Saint of Climate Change," the Shrine On description reads. The candle, which includes a picture of Greta Thunberg dressed up as Jesus Christ often is in votive candles, sells for $18 plus shipping. The Etsy listing is slightly cheaper at $14.43, and it reveals that the item will be ready to ship from Canada in 3-5 business days.

One of the several downsides in watching too much football this past weekend was watching too many TV commercials. And although I had grown used to the “stupid white man” trope, now a staple of comic advertising, I was unprepared for AT&T’s impressively racist and sexist “Just OK is not OK” campaign. The larger message of the campaign is that “when it comes to wireless networks, just OK is not OK.” According to some dubious test, AT&T is allegedly “America’s best network.” To launch this concept, AT&T and its marketing geniuses at the Omnicom Group designed a series of scenarios in which an incompetent white professional or service worker offers

The couple who shot up a kosher market in Jersey City last month and the suspect in the Hanukkah stabbings in upstate Monsey had connections to the Black Hebrew Israelites, a secretive sect with some members preaching hate against Jews. David Anderson, one of the shooters killed in the Dec. 10 firefight which resulted in six dead, published rabid anti-Semitic screeds on social media and was inspired by the group. Grafton Thomas, the accused stabber who injured five Hanukkah celebrants inside a rabbi’s home last week, had attended the sect’s house of worship in East Harlem.

For decades, land-use regulation across the U.S. has emphasized single-family houses on large lots. This approach has priced many people out of the quintessential American dream: home ownership. It also has promoted suburban sprawl — a pattern of low-density, car-dependent development that has dominated growth at the edges of urban areas since the end of World War II. Now, however, Americans may be starting to question the desirability of a private house. In the past year, the Minneapolis City Council and the state of Oregon have voted to allow duplexes and other types of multi-unit housing in neighborhoods where currently only single-family homes currently are allowed.

The Washington Post recently published a surprising indictment of MSNBC host Rachel Maddow. Post media critic Erik Wemple wrote that Maddow deliberately misled her audience by claiming the now-discredited Steele dossier was largely verifiable — even at a time when there was plenty of evidence that it was mostly bogus. At the very time Maddow was reassuring viewers that ex-spook Christopher Steele was believable, populist talk radio and the much-criticized Fox News Channel were insisting that most of Steele’s allegations simply couldn’t be true.

This will not be a Benghazi,” vowed President Donald Trump to reporters on New Year’s Eve. “This will never, ever be a Benghazi.” A spot-on analogy. So far, so good. It looks like a seizure of the U.S. embassy in Baghdad by Iranian militants has been averted. In so doing, President Trump — with full credit to our troops — has averted not only a Benghazi but a Jimmy Carter. The parallels between what happened in the Middle East the final week of December 2019 and what happened in the Middle East the final weeks of 1979 are chilling.

That's according to two state officials who were briefed on the plans but not authorized to speak publicly about them. The governor, a Democrat, plans to announce the plans at a news conference Wednesday afternoon because of credible threats of potential violence and extremism, one official said.

They are Democrats Rep. Adam Schiff, chair of the Intelligence Committee, and Rep. Jerry Nadler, chair of the Judiciary Committee. Trump was impeached by the Democratic-led House last month on charges of abuse of power over his pressure on Ukraine to investigate Democratic rival Joe Biden as Trump withheld aid from the country. He was also charged with obstructing Congress’ ensuing probe.
