House Democrats introduced a legislation, H.R. 8, in honor of the eighth anniversary of the January 8, 2011, attack on Gabby Giffords. Giffords stood with the Democrats as they introduced their gun control.

The House Judiciary Panel marked up the bill on Wednesday.

During the House Judiciary meeting, several amendments were introduced alongside H.R. 8, that many were voted against because of Democratic obstruction.

H.R. 8 would outlaw the private gun sales Americans have enjoyed since December 15, 1791, the date on which the Second Amendment was ratified. This would criminalize a neighbor who sold a gun to lifelong neighbor without first getting government permission via a background check. It would also criminalize a friend for selling a gun to lifelong friend without government permission, according to Breitbart.

Moreover, H.R. 8 would have done nothing to stop nearly every mass shooter to date in the 21st century. This is because nearly every mass shooter acquired his guns via background checks, rather than private gun sales. The exceptions are those who stole their guns, per Breitbart.

Other parts of H.R. 8 include: making it illegal for law-abiding citizens to take basic steps to protect themselves from criminals and abusers, and H.R. 8 would make it illegal for a domestic abuse or stalking victim to borrow a gun from a friend for protection, unless the threat is “imminent.” (Continued Below)

Rep Greg Steube (R-FL) offered an amendment on Wednesday to flag denied background checks for law enforcement. Democrats rejected the amendment. (It it worth noting however, Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) introduced a nearly identical bill last year.)

Further, it should be clearer than ever that Democrats choose illegals over Americans as they continue to protect them from law enforcement agents.

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) took to Twitter exposing exactly how sick and twisted this is. (Continued Below)

Gatez wrote, “Democrats in the Judiciary Committee just voted against notifying ICE when an illegal alien fails a background check to buy a gun. They hate ICE so much that they’d keep ICE in the dark when illegals try to get guns!”
