Recall the horrific story about New Jersey woman Carol Bowne who was stabbed to death by her ex-boyfriend recently.
Bowne was stabbed to death while waiting to get permission from her police chief to purchase a firearm to protect herself.
Congressional Democrats in Washington D.C. have decided they want more women like Carol Bowne to be murdered by putting similar gun control laws in place across the country.
From The Truth About Guns:
‘States require licenses to drive a car or even to fish in local rivers, so requiring a license to buy a deadly handgun is a common sense step that could save countless lives. This legislation will help states develop responsible handgun licensing programs,’ said sponsor Rep. Chris Van Hollen, who is running for an open Senate seat in Maryland.”
The Handgun Purchaser Licensing Act authorizes a grant program at the Department of Justice to encourage states to establish permit-to-purchase requirements for all handguns, including at gun shows and with private sellers. This grant would help offset the costs associated with the development, implementation, and evaluation of these programs. To be eligible, states must require individuals applying for a license to meet the following criteria:
— Provide proof they are at least 21 years old and a lawful resident of the United States.
— Apply for the license at a law enforcement agency within the state.
— Submit to a background investigation and criminal history check.
— Submit fingerprints and photographs with their application.
— Be eligible to purchase a handgun pursuant to the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act.
Basically Congressional Democrats want you to have to wait to protect yourself and want you to wait to practice your fundamental RIGHT to self defense.
They want you to wait until your police chief decides if you are ‘suitable’ or not to practice your RIGHT.
This when states across the country are currently changing their draconian gun laws because they realize they only hurt law-abiding citizens.
How many more women to Democrats want to DIE before they understand the basic concept of SELF DEFENSE?
More and more women are protecting themselves across the country – millions more – yet Democrats, including Governor Margaret Wood Hassan, seek to continue draconian laws that have been proven to hurt women.
How many more women will have to die before they are ‘allowed’ to freely protect themselves as they see fit?
