GUN CONTROL: House passes background checks bill for gun sales

After the Dems took over the House we warned you this was coming and now it's happened (sort of). But don't worry - this will never pass in the Senate and it won't get Trump's signature (we hope).

Fox News Reports:

The House on Tuesday passed a bill requiring background checks to be carried out on nearly every individual who purchases a firearm - marking the Democrats' first victory in tightening the nation’s gun laws since retaking control of the lower chamber of Congress.
The bill, HR 8, passed 240-190 after hours of debate and parliamentary maneuvering that saw Democrats agreeing to add an amendment to the legislation that would alert Immigration and Customs Enforcement if a person in the country illegally tried to purchase a firearm.
Another amendment to the bill, which would have exempted individuals cleared by the Transportation Security Administration’s Precheck Program from greater scrutiny when buying a gun, failed to garner enough votes for inclusion.

The House is set to vote on HR 1112 on Thursday.
While a handful of House Republicans have signed up in support of HR 8 – including Rep. Peter King of New York – the vast majority of GOP lawmakers opposed the legislation.

If any Republican wants to keep their job they'd damn sure better stop this bill from becoming a law.
