Here is Your 'Guidance to Help You Understand' if You Have the Right to Buy and Sell Firearms

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has a pamphlet available online that enlightens Americans and gives them guidance to help understand when one is granted permission to buy or sell firearms. 

In the pamphlet, you can find phrases such as: 

“persons who are engaged in the business of dealing in firearms” 

“you will need a license if you repetitively buy and sell firearms with the principal motive of making profit”

“occasional sales of firearms from your personal collection, you do not need to be licensed"

The pamphlet goes on to say that “persons who are engaged in the business of dealing in firearms” is a person who “devotes time, attention, and labor to dealing in firearms as a regular course of trade or business.”  

Who is to decide what any of this means?  Who is accountable?

Obama’s newest regulations on firearms all involve the financial aspects of the firearms trade.  It is odd that there is nothing included in the new regulations that limits the government’s role, only inflating the efforts of government and adding more spending to dictate who can buy and sell firearms.  

This 15-page simplified version of who the government allows to buy and sell guns is longer than the Constitution and Declaration of Independence combined.  Its words could entrap even the most intellectual scholars with its vagueness. 

This is just more added weight to our grotesquely obese government.  It will continue to grow. It has not slowed down. It has not regressed in any way shape or form.  Our ‘knight in shining armor’ Speaker of the House Paul Ryan starts the New Year off with a bill that will revoke spending for Obamacare and Planned Parenthood which, in return, will be used as nothing more than toilet paper in Obama’s bathroom.  And as for Obama, he had complete victory today when he gathered everyone’s attention in announcing his plans to completely disregard the pusillanimous Congress and pass his gun control measure.  For we as Americans to waste any time in complaining and chasing the delusive phantom of hope that things will soon be better is complete and utter folly.
