” (Dr. Jerome R. Corsi) - The raging gun debate is about to enter a new phase as Congress moves this week to begin considering new legislation that would impose new restrictions on the Second Amendment.This solution proposed by negotiations between Senator Charles Schumer, a New York Democrat, and Senator Charles Coburn, a Republican from Oklahoma, involves expanding background checks on gun purchases, but the danger is that the criteria of psychological disqualification are so poorly defined that…
What Schumer and Coburn are attempting to do may seem innocuous. Who would object to background checks to keep weapons out of the hands of criminals?
The problem is once the door is opened to background checks, the door is opened to the government making judgments of competency and there is where the infringement of the Second Amendment can be expanded to virtually outlaw guns.
Every adult has some incident in their background that a government bureaucrat with a prejudice against the Second Amendment could judge renders the person psychologically unfit to own a weapon.
