Open Borders Advocates Are Unhappy Over ICE Being Alerted When An Illegal Applies For A Firearm

It’s illegal for a non-resident to possess a firearm, except under a very small set of circumstances, usually having to do with hunting or security, and both came with a heavy dose of restrictions. Makes sense, right? Well, you already surely know that Democrats attempted to sneak in a provision to their check backgrounds and end up requiring a registry of law abiding citizens bill, which wouldn’t stop most criminals from getting a gun, that would keep ICE from being alerted when an illegal alien applied for a firearms license

Activist Group: Don’t Expand Gun Control ‘at the Expense of Our Immigrant Communities’

House Democrats passed universal background checks to leftist fanfare Wednesday, but one activist group worries the gun control could make life more difficult for illegals.

On February 18, 2019, Breitbart News reported that the Democrats rejected a Republican push to add an alert for ICE to the gun control bill. The Republican wanted to alert ICE if an illegal alien was discovered via a background check for a firearm.

On February 27, 2019, the Republicans secured a “motion to recommit,” thereby adding the ICE alert to the Democrats’ gun control bill.

In response the Community Justice Action Fund hedged its support for the Democrats’ gun control bill, noting that more gun laws should not be passed at the expense of illegals:

Alerting ICE when an unlawfully present person tries to purchase a firearm is keeping communities safe. Realistically, how many illegals attempt to get a background check to get a firearm? I’d hazard to say it is very, very, very low. But, we see how the Open Borders lobby will attempt to protect illegals at all turns.

    IIRC – the purpose of the NICS check is to insure that prohibited persons do NOT get ‘legal’ access to firearms. Of course that is only works IF those prohibited persons are properly identified.

    This is why I was so amused at Elwood’s statement about wanting more gun control. At this point we have every law in place needed to keep criminals and the insane from buying legal firearms. We lack nothing. Therefore, at this point any additional gun laws whether admitted or not are only to suppress the legal ownership of firearms by fascists. Any American who is for more firearm laws is basically trying to deny us our rights and is by definition a Nazi, fascist or communist as they are the ones who historically disarm their people before they imprison or murder them. There, I said it.

      We lack the will to enforce the laws.

      Kye blurted: Any American who is for more firearm laws is basically trying to deny us our rights and is by definition a Nazi, fascist or communist as they are the ones who historically disarm their people before they imprison or murder them. There, I said it.

      Any American who opposes reasonable firearms laws is by definition a Nazi or anarchist. There, I said it.

      All the right has is hate.

        The laws don’t work.

        There are firearm laws and there are firearm laws. The crazies want Americans disarmed so they can turn the country into Venezuela, Rhodesia, South Africa, or San Fiasco.

        The objective is pretty clear. BTW Ever since the Kennedy assassination, the Lefties have pushed more and more restrictions on firearms and ever since then the country has gotten more violent.

        Coinkydink?

        And the Democrats just lost next year’s election. You think Social Security is the third rail in American politics?

        Stay tuned.

        Elwood, we already have over 6,000 “reasonable firearms laws” in this country. If you want more you’re a f*****g Nazi pure and simple. It’s already unlawful for every category of person who should not be allowed to own firearms to own firearms. After that they are coming after us.

        All the radLefts have is stupidity and oppression.

    Since when has the phrase “our immigrant communities” come to mean our illegal immigrant communities? It’s obvious: those who have come here legally would have no problems with this action.
