GOA says: "Senator betrays gun owners. Sellout is worse than the Feinstein gun ban!"

Received this from GOA:
Well, we’ve seen the Toomey-Manchin-Schumer sell-out, and it’s worse than the Feinstein gun ban, which will reportedly be tied to it and offered simultaneously in a Senate procedure known as an “amendment tree.”
Toomey and Manchin will claim that their bill only covers “gun show sales” and Internet sales. But if you’ve ever talked about your gun and /or let it be known you’d like to sell or buy a gun on the Internet, this language covers you. If you advertise your gun in the church bulletin and the bulletin is put on the Internet, you’re covered.
The only exemption is for sales that are sold exclusively by word of mouth. The increased number of background checks would likely exacerbate the system breakdowns (inherent to NICS) which have shut down gun shows over and over again. It would mean that Americans who were illegally denied firearms because their names were similar to other people's would effectively be barred from owning a gun. (We would never tolerate such delays for voting rights or other freedoms that we are guaranteed.)
And for those Republicans who think they’re going to be able to offer their useless amendments, guess what? Reid is reportedly going to use a procedure to block out all amendments (called an “amendment tree”). And there are plenty of Senators standing in line to make sure that the Senate doesn’t give “unanimous consent” to let those Republicans offer their amendments.
So if you live in a rural area, you’re effectively barred from selling or buying a gun - or it at least becomes very, very difficult.
Incidentally, the Toomey-Manchin-Schumer “national registry” language is full of holes. There will be a national gun registry as a result of this sell-out.
But that’s not the worst part. Under an amendment in the bill to HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), you could have your guns taken away because your private shrink thinks you’re “dangerous” and could send your name directly to the FBI Instant Check system.
Did you think it was terrible that 150,000 military veterans had been added into the NICS system because they’d seen a VA shrink about their PTSD? Well guess what? Now it’s going to happen to the rest of the population ... by the millions!
And the next step, of course, will be to begin to sue psychiatrists that don’t send every single patient’s name to the Instant Check system, and to make sure that their lives are ruined if they don’t send a patient to NICS and anything goes wrong.
The bottom line: “See a shrink; lose your guns.”
All of this will reportedly be on an amendment tree with the Feinstein gun ban and magazine bans.
Repeal of gun owner protections. In addition, Toomey no doubt unintentionally agreed to repeal one of the most important protections for gun owners that was included in the 1986 McClure-Volkmer Act - the provision that would allow you to take an unloaded, locked-up gun through states like New York without being stopped. Under a new subsection (c), the Toomey-Manchin-Schumer bill would require you to “demonstrate” to the satisfaction of New York police where you were coming from and where you are going to. And, if you don’t do that to their satisfaction, they can arrest you.
Please keep in mind, nothing in this bill would have stopped Newtown dirtbag from killing his mother and taking the firearms that she owned and perpetrating the horrible crimes that he committed.
Nothing is this bill would actually make children safer at schools. There is nothing that will actually keep bad guys from stealing or illegally acquiring guns, but there’s plenty that will threaten our gun rights!

The Senate Republican Betrayal also shows that the UN Arms Trade Treaty may also get ratified.

There isn't ANY thing in ANY Democrat sponsored bill so far that will prevent another Newtown-type massacre.

It's the side show that's really scary...the HIPPA amendment, the Affordable Health Care Act's vague and easily misinterpreted language, and the fact that the VA has been taking gun rights ownership from entire families for many years now. All of it is backdoor tyranny that needs to be dealt with immediately.

The bill will be sued in court en masse. If not. We deserve to be screwed.

No one, at any time, should ever go to a shrink for any reason. Go see a church pastor instead.

It is plain that Democrats and Rinos are working to ensure that "gun control" means only the rich, connected or federal employees will control guns.

Can see the 2014 election posters for the wobbly elephants:

"Bloomies Boy"
[as endorsed by 'Bammie]
"Vote for MORE Tyranny!"

That should really get them re-elected ... NOT.

Note this: the mainstream media has begun "redefining" what is meant by a commercial sale. MSM reports now refer to the bill as "extending background checks to commercial sales that weren't previously covered by federal law" and 'helpfully' explaining that currently only commercial sales by an FFL holder are covered.

It's important to pay close attention to how the left corrupts language and concepts -- it's one of their primary tools for brainwashing the public.
