John McCain’s Gun-Show Bill

Senate Bill 890

“The bill that would close down gun shows”

 

They want you to say
(and you lose if you say):
GUN-SHOW LOOPHOLE

It's better to say
(and they lose if you say):
FREEDOM TO PURCHASE


Arizona Senator John McCain seemed like an all right guy when we elected him many years ago. Now he seems like the Manchurian Candidate -- a brainwashed former POW (6 years in Nam), who all-of-a-sudden drops any pretense of the conservative politics that got him elected, and literally enlists with radical left-wing campaigns of the Democratic party. His website and televised speeches contain gross falsehoods, foisting federal gun-show infringement schemes as a crime deterrant, and grotesque abridgments of free speech as campaign finance reform. Take a look at what his gun show proposals really say, then see if you think you've been getting accurate reporting. The news media, once again, should be ashamed of itself.

GUN SHOW BILL IS NOT WHAT THEY SAY
Mass media publicity on the proposed McCain-Lieberman Gun Show Bill is grossly inaccurate. It's really about federal registration of gun shows, vendors, and every person who attends. Detailed analysis in plain English.

GUN SHOW BILL IS EVEN WORSE
Could Close Gun Shows Completely
If anyone at a gun show offers (not even sells, but offers) a gun to
anyone else at the show -- even a gun they don't have with them -- the
seller, buyer, AND gun show operator can be arrested. You don't even
need a prohibited possessor (a criminal) involved. No operator will run
a show with that kind of legal risk. Full plain-English descriptions,
with citations.

SHOULD CONGRESS CLOSE DOWN GUN SHOWS?

The McCain-Lieberman bill practically requires gun-show closures -- but
they're not mentioning it, and the media doesn't know it. Here is a
Letter to the Editor, a short and sweet summary, that you can mail
yourself to wake up your local reporters.

Author David Kopel and I co-authored a detailed report on McCain's proposals to close gun shows (reported by the media as a loophole of some sort). Read it at the Independence Institue website.
