Gun Ban Group Twists Truth in Favor of Wisconsin Anti-Second Amendment Bill!

Friday, March 16, 2007

 

Please Contact Your State Legislators Today!

Recently, the gun-ban group “Mothers Against Gun Violence,” falsely asserted that selling a firearm to a felon is somehow legal in Wisconsin. In reality, committing such an act is a federal felony, as well as a crime as defined in Wisconsin code sections 941.29(4) and 939.05(2)(b).

The group made this false claim to generate support for an anti-freedom bill, LRB 0861/2 introduced by State Senator Spencer Coggs (D-6), that would require all private transfers of firearms in Milwaukee County to be conducted through a Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL).  Of course, the FFL would charge an unknown fee for the service, placing what amounts to a tax on all private firearms transfers. 

Simply put, there is no private transaction “loophole.” When law-abiding gun owners participate in a private transfer of a firearm, they are merely exercising their Second Amendment freedoms and right to dispose of private property. There isn’t a shred of credible evidence to substantiate the claim that legal private transfers are a means by which criminals obtain firearms. 

Furthermore, LRB 0861/2 would strike a blow to the heart of Wisconsin’s statewide firearm preemption law that prohibits local jurisdictions from enacting laws more restrictive than state law.  This would set a dangerous precedent and threaten the future of gun owners’ rights statewide.

It is critical that you contact your State Senator at (608) 266-2517 and your State Representative at (608) 266-1501 today and respectfully request that he or she oppose LRB 0861/2.
