13. GOOD NEWS FROM FLORIDA - WEST LOSES!


Good News- Allen West LOSES with his Gun Advocacy Positions




Allen would Loosen restrictions on interstate gun purchases.

West co-sponsored Firearms Interstate Commerce Reform Act

Congressional Summary:Amends the federal criminal code to:
allow licensed firearms dealers to sell or deliver any firearm (currently, rifles or shotguns) to any state if the licensee meets with the purchaser and the transaction complies with the laws of the state in which the transfer is conducted and the purchaser's state of residence; and
eliminate the requirement that a licensee must conduct business at a gun show only in the state that is specified on the licensee's license.
Nothing in this Act shall prohibit the sale of a firearm or ammunition between licensed firearms dealers at any location in any state.

Proponent's Comments (NRA-ILA, Oct. 14, 2011):

This bill would remove several antiquated and unnecessary restrictions (his words) imposed on interstate firearms business since 1968:
-Virtually all interstate transfers directly between private citizens are banned; so are nearly all interstate handgun sales by licensed dealers.
-Firearms dealers may only do business at their licensed premises or (since 1986) at gun shows in their own state.
-Dealers may not even transfer firearms to one another face to face, away from their business


Did I mention he blames the Holcaust on not having guns? How about his argument government can mandate owning guns if it can mandate regulating guns (virtually every other safety regulation not withstanding).
