Sen. Chuck Schumer's background check bill raises red flags with gun rights supporters

Even the most radical of you gun nuts out there can’t possibly have a problem with universal background checks, right? It’s all a part of being a responsible gun owner. Sen. Chuck Schumer’s “Protecting Responsible Gun Sellers Act of 2013” passed through the Senate Judiciary Committee today on a 10–8 party line vote, but a close reading of the provisions has some responsible gun owners concerned about the criminalization of private gun ownership.

While the placeholder bill would require background checks for transactions between private individuals, gun rights activists note that the sweeping definitions of “transaction” and “transfer” severely limit what private gun owners can do with their firearms.

Denying gun rights to gays? Pagunblog.com explains:

  • If you left town for more than 7 days, and left your gay partner, or unrelated roommate at home with the guns, you’d be committing a felony. This should be called the “denying gun rights to gays act.” Remember that the federal government does not recognize gay marriage, even if you’re state does, thanks to DOMA. 5 years in prison.
  • Actually, even married couples are questionably legal, because the exemption between family only applies to gifts, not to temporary transfers. The 7 day implication is if you leave your spouse at home for more than 7 days, it’s an unlawful transfer, and you’re a 5 year felon. I suppose you could gift them to your spouse, or related co-habitant, and then have them gift them back when you arrive back home. Maybe the Attorney General will decide to create a form for that.

Schumer’s bill as it stands is only a “placeholder,” as the “compromise” version is reportedly still under development, although it currently has no GOP co-sponsor after a breakdown in negotiations. “This isn’t going to be a perfect bill,” said Schumer, “but it will sure reduce crimes.”

Less stringent and more Constitutional?
