House Dems Unveil Bill To Ban Private Gun Sales

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA) recently unveiled a bill to block private gun sales.

 Gun control proponent Gabby Giffords was there to introduce the legislation, which is titled H.R. 8.

The number 8 was chosen because it honors Giffords who survived an attack 8 years ago on January 8, 2011.

Three House Republicans: Rep. Peter King (R-NY), Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL), and Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) are supported the Democrats with this bill.

Strangely, if this bill in place before Giffords was attacked, it wouldn’t have prevented anything because her attacker purchased the gun that was used from a retailer after passing a background check.
