...Is an NRA-approved, GOP-complicit "compromise" that bans some or all private firearms sales.
They've been boiling this frog for years; the Gun Control Act of 1968 ratcheted up the requirements for Federally-licensed gun sellers (FFLs, which began under the Federal Firearms Act of 1938) and essentially outlawed mail-order gun sales. It also gave us logging of most ammunition sales, a bit of .gov snoopiness that lasted until FOPA 1986, which turned some burners under the frog-pot down and turned others up -- but never let up on the heat. (Some present-day pundits would like ammunition-sales logging to return, of course.)
Citizens are not frogs; we have options other than leaping out or getting boiled. Contact your legislators and contact the NRA. Hold the line!
