The lamestream media told you:
According to published reports (AP, 3/14/13), Sen. Charles Schumer, speaking about his proposed background-check bill S.374, said, “The bill explicitly says there is no registration, explicitly says no confiscation.”
The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
A number of Page Nine readers misunderstood my recent offer to Mr. Schumer (though most got it), when I suggested we take him up on this part of his plan. We’ll have nothing to do with the so-called background check part, because that’s just a coverup for gun registration and everyone knows that. But the no-confiscation and no-registration part might be a good idea, let’s see a bill for that part, and maybe agree at least there. I don’t think that’s what he expected, but why not try to hold him to his own words.
