On December 8, New York democratic senators,  Charles â€"Chuck” Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand​,  both recipients of an â€"F” grade by the National Rifle Association, proposed Senate Bill 1973 ' Gun Trafficking Prevention Act of 2012.

It should alarm us that this measure has been modeled after the proposals of NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg's national gun-control coalition because Bloomberg, recall, has a proven track record of acting in violation of the First and Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Bloomberg once said, â€"I don't know why people carry guns. Guns kill people.” Okay, Mr. Bloomberg, for the millionth time, the facts are crystal clear; people kill people, guns do not, have not, and will not, ever, have a life of its own so that it could pull its own trigger.

A right to keep and bear arms is in fact not an option, but a mandate of the Second Amendment, and is meant to protect the People from oppressive government.  Sure an easy concept for the rest of us to comprehend, but not so for anti-freedom, Bloomberg, who has a very bad habit of banning things he finds deplorable; for example, guns, trans fats, and vehicles.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, acting in kind, recently made the unfounded claim that â€"in America, guns are freely available to all, regardless of criminal history or other prohibitive factors.”  Keep your fingers crossed that no one actually believes such gibberish, but unfortunately because of ineffective reporting by an anti-firearm New York media, people do.

The truth is, there are plenty of, probably too many, federal laws already on the books that protect gun dealers from potential criminals who attempt to purchase their product.

Of course this bill is not about catching criminals, it is about placing further restrictions and penalties on law abiding gun dealers and purchasers, in the hopes of containing firearm sale and ownership to law enforcement officials and politicians - alone.

NOTE: This Christmas gun sales were through the roof. They set new sales records for like time periods. There is a reason. People do not trust the government and regretfully can no longer trust their neighbor. I am sorry to say I speak from experience. Yes, I am a pastor and Nancy and I both carry protection for ourselves and those around us who may not be as prepared.
