WHO WE ARE. Founded by Will Riley, a high school senior from Carlsbad, New Mexico, Stand for the Second is a movement by students, for students who recognize the attack on our rights and future. We also know that our silence won't cut it anymore.
NOW we need a movement called "Stop the Gang Bangers". Gang violence is one of the leading causes of shootings and deaths in the inner cities across this country, (plus drugs and other illegal activities).
My recent place of employment takes me through the "hood" to get there. The other evening,,, on the way home... I saw a local enforcement officer on the edge of someone's front lawn. One of the residents of the house had his cell phone out,,, recording everything. There were a lot of people on the front lawn dressed in red. As I continued on... about a half mile past the house,,, another officer passed me with lights and sirens on. Anyone wanna guess where he was going??? Anyone think he was dispatched as "backup"???
And as far as the BS about the background checks.... ,,,,,, it's already being done. Anyone who is able to legally own a firearm,,, when purchasing a firearm through a legal vendor, (I.E. "gun shop/licensed seller), has to fill out one of these.
WARNING: You may not receive a firearm if prohibited by Federal or State law. ... Read the Notices, Instructions, and Definitions on this form. Prepare in original ...
Now... once the top 10 boxes are filled out properly,,, we get to section 11. The first box had better be checked "yes" if a person is buying a gun for themselves. If not,,, then it turns into a headache of more forms to fill out.
For the rest of the boxes in section 11... a "legal" gun buyer should be able to answer "no",,, But it doesn't really matter because the FBI can pull up a persons criminal record in a matter of a couple minutes.
Sooo.... if anyone is trying to buy a gun,,, that is not legally allowed to own one... they will be visited at the gun shop by local law enforcement and hauled away,,, with yet another criminal offense.
Point is.... the National Instant Check System does work.
The National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS, is all about saving lives and protecting people from harm—by not letting guns fall into the wrong hands. ... Mandated by the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1993 and launched by the FBI on November 30, 1998 ...
