Next Step In Attack On Private Transfers

Friday, February 22, 2002

It has always been clear to the pro-Second Amendment community that the attacks on gun shows are merely the first step in an orchestrated effort to outlaw all private transfers of firearms—including those between close friends, neighbors, or even relatives—and impose a national firearm licensing and registration scheme. A small group of state-level anti-gun organizations held a press conference on Thursday to publicly announce the next phase in this campaign. The group calls itself the "National Campaign to Close the Newspaper Gun Ad Loophole," and seeks to bring an end to law-abiding citizens using newspaper ads to legally sell their lawful property—firearms.

This coalition masquerades as a "grassroots" movement, although it is actually a handful of affiliates of the gun-ban lobby formerly known as HCI, and is little more than a collection of anti-gun extremists that receives funding from, and aligns themselves with, national anti-gun organizations. NRA will closely monitor the development of this campaign, and we will be sure to report any significant developments. The coalition’s timing is certainly interesting, as their effort to curtail the private transfer of firearms occured at the same time BATF was curtailing transfers through FFLs.
