Seriously WTF

This is unreal - from FOX News:

Democrats reject push to alert ICE when illegal immigrants fail firearm background checks
Democrats this week approved legislation to require background checks for essentially all sales and transfers of firearms -- but rejected GOP-led efforts to amend the legislation to alert law enforcement authorities when gun buyers, including illegal immigrants, fail those background checks.

The House Judiciary Committee voted in favor of the bill 23-15, in a strict party-line vote, sending it to the House floor. If approved by the full House, the bill would be the most significant gun-control legislation approved by either chamber of Congress in at least a decade -- although it stands little chance of passage in the Senate, where Republicans command a slim majority.

First of all, commercial sales of guns are already regulated. Anyone who purchases a gun - either at a store or at a gun show - is required to fill out an ATF Form 4473. This has been the case since 1968. The seller calls this in to the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms and it is entered into their database. The sale is either allowed or rejected. The only way around this is either a single sale, person to person. Family members, friends, etc... The other way is to buy a gun illegally from a criminal.

All the legislation in the world will not stop this last kind of transaction because - well - CRIMINAL

It is worth noting that the majority of gun violence is perpetrated with these kinds of guns. Chicago has had 232 shootings and 43 homicides this year alone. 90% of these are with illegal guns - black on black gang killings.

What they are proposing will let the illegal alien turn to criminal gun dealers if their attempt to purchase a gun legally fails. Would it be much better if ICE were alerted that this person, here illegally, was trying to obtain a gun?

The next poor citizen who is murdered by an illegal with a gun purchased illegally - their death will have been at the hands of Pelosi and Schumer. How much are the cartels paying them to keep the border open?
