but the main arguments against the law that died are as follows
1) the constitutional foundation for the law is dubious. even under the massively expanded FDR definition of interstate commerce its hard to justify the feds having power over second hand sales that are-by law-LIMITED TO INTRA state sales
2) BTW if you actually engage in the profession or COMMERCE of selling guns you violate federal law by not having a license
3) the law cannot be enforced. you see, dealers have to keep a record of what they buy, sell and receive and that means the Feds can easily check if they complied with the BGC rules. not so with private sellers who have no duty to keep such records or to be available for inspections without warrants.
thus, many of us believe that the law was intended to "create a need" for such record keeping or registration
4) none of the highly publicized tragedies were due to a lack of a BGC. many of us tire of the democrats using a tragedy to push laws that have no relationship to a problem

the city that forces business to bring a bat to a gunfight
Store robbery video: In Illinois, the politicians, not the taxpayers, are protected - Chicago TribuneIllinois — where politicians force law-abiding citizens to bring a bat to a gunfight.
An amazing video released Wednesday that shows a Chicago shopkeeper fighting for his life should be a commercial for Second Amendment rights in this, the only state that doesn't allow citizens to carry a concealed handgun for protection.
The video, posted by the Tribune's Breaking News Center, shows in vivid and frightening detail how armed thugs robbed a gift and sports store Tuesday in the Logan Square neighborhood.
You can see the gunman demand the money. You see the store owner's brother-in-law with a gun to his head. You see the shots being fired, and the bat wielded by a wounded and desperate Luis Quizhpe, the 62-year-old proprietor who fought for his life.
thugs are emboldened, politicians protected

At Pivotal Point in Presidency, Obama Routed on Gun Control - NationalJournal.com
can you deny it?
"obama’s team took news of the defeat hard wednesday, with some advisers predicting that gun regulation won’t be revived"
"it is hard for them to explain the failure of a measure supported by 90 percent of the public without making the president appear weak"
"one senior obama associate who works outside the white house said on condition of anonymity, 'if we can’t get it done four months after sandy hook, how are we going to get it done any time in the next four years?'"
“this is an unmitigated disaster”
Women are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
You don't think the left is trying to mislead us again, do you?
This is a Major Defeat for him.....Stunning and Stinging!

Maybe people like background checks, but they don't like liberals messing with our guns.
