Biden signs gun law related bill

| June 25, 2022

This new law extends who would be prohibited from being able to purchase a firearm. Among those who would be prohibited are those under 21, with some exceptions. It also closes the “boyfriend loophole”.

From the Hill:

The House took up the bill hours after the Senate approved it in a 65-33 vote on Thursday night. Fifteen Republicans, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.), joined all Democrats in supporting the measure in the upper chamber.

“Today, we say more than enough. We said more than enough. It’s time when it seems impossible to get anything done in Washington, we are doing some consequential,” he said, joined at the podium by first lady Jill Biden. “I know there’s much more work to do. I’m never going to give up.”

Biden, who said today is a “monumental day,” thanked the leaders in Congress who got the bill across the finish line and thanked the families of victims, who the president and the first lady have met with.

“I’ve been at this work for a long, long time and I know how hard it is and I know what is takes to get it done,” he said.

The bill, known as the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, enhances background checks for gun purchasers between the age of 18 and 21, makes obtaining firearms through straw purchases or trafficking a federal offense and clarifies the definition of a federally licensed firearm dealer.

It allocates $750 million to help states administer red flag laws, which seek to keep guns away from people deemed a threat to themselves or others, and other intervention programs, and it includes funding for mental health treatment.

Additionally, it closes the so-called boyfriend loophole by barring individuals from possessing a firearm for at least five years if they are convicted of a misdemeanor crime of violence involving a current or former romantic partner. It extends the law that previously only applied to abuse against spouses, a person they share a child with or a cohabitating partner.

“While this bill doesn’t do everything I want, it does include actions I’ve long called for that are going to save lives,” he said.

SCOTUS review please…


Which is what most (if not all) the “aye” RINO votes are hoping. Like campaign finance reform. They know it’s not right, but they’ll pass it hoping SCOTUS overrules them. Hopefully unlike McCain-Feingold, the SCOTUS here does the right thing.


Hope ain’t a reliable method of anything.


Corn Pop is on the Supreme Court and payback is a bitch.

Just how many RINOS sold their souls, said “*MOOOO, BA-A-A-A-A*” and voted with the D-rats? Many politicians are such shit-for-brains who only go with the crowd, just how many Gun Laws from the past were effective at stopping the recent mass shootings?

Here ya go API

Exactly. We know the Dims are going to vote for stupid shit like this. You can’t get mad at them anymore than you can at a dog for barking; it’s what they do. These cocksucker RINOs on the other hand, I hope they get hit by a bus…repeatedly. Seriously, when is the last time the Dems DIDN’T vote in lockstep over shit like this? A little party unity would be helpful in times like these. I move that we drop the ASSteroid of Insults on Mitch “The Bitch” McConnell and John “Cocksucker” Cornyn for this bullshit here.


Tried to call Cornyn’s office when the vote was coming. The voicemail “was full”
Sent a message by his online webpage.

Local paper has published two anti-gun letters lately. I responded to the last one (last weekend’s issue) on Tuesday.
Guess what is not in this weekend’s issue?


Wrote to Cornyn and I received a standard form letter assuring me that he was against gun control.
God damn Liar

BlueCord Dad



all in favor… AYE!

Cocksuckers should all be thrown out for violating their oaths of office


Ok guys, 2 days behind.
I got this.
Working on it tomorrow.


Just waiting for the next massacre to chip away more gun rights.


Da, comrade, is whole plan!


I’m sure none of these have been engineered / encouraged (Like Jan 6th???) by the Feebs…


Didn’t the 9th circuit just say that California trying the same shit with 18-21 y/o’s was unconstitutional??

And to hell with the “boyfriend loophole”, how about the “biden loophole”??? I’ll believe the old pedo is serious about gun crime when Hunter is in jail for lying on a 4473, and his sister in law / slam piece is in jail for throwing a gun in a trash can near a school..

I may have missed that one, but if they did, it gives a supreme court appeal a lot more horsepower due to that precedent.


Someone should really read Federalist No10:

By a faction I understand a number of citizens, whether amounting to a majority or minority of the whole, who are united and actuated by some common impulse of passion, or of interest, adverse to the rights of other citizens, or to the permanent and aggregate interests of the community.

There are two methods of curing the mischiefs of faction: The one, by removing its causes; the other, by controlling its effects.

There are again two methods of removing the causes of faction: The one by destroying the liberty which is essential to its existence; the other, by giving to every citizen the same opinions, the same passions, and the same interests.

The inference to which we are brought, is, that the  causes of faction cannot be removed; and that relief is only to be sought in the means of controlling its effects .

My effects are about rounding out a 1776 on the Richter scale . Shall not means SHALL NOT!


Also, I’d like to announce my GiveSendGo* for the purchase of a COEHORN MORTAR 12 POUNDER (see below)
*this is a joke, unless someone would like to subsidize my stoopededdy, and I wouldn’t if I were you.

I can see that boyfriend loophole being abused big time. And don’t get me started on the red flag shit.


Yep! Wondering which one of my exes will be the FIRST to drop a dime on me for…reasons. All of them hate me for living real well and being a happy dog.

They just turned up the flame on this pot of cold water the frogs are living in. More control over We, The People.

Y’all fed up yet?


Yet another reason to not get into a serious relationship.

As of tomorrow, I’m a civilian, again.

My turn to be Jody, but for all these civilians while they’re away at work.

Every single state that passed red flag laws has had numerous innocent people murdered by the police under color of law. I believe all those states are blue by the way.

The Dead Man

I’ve been looking at that since it is odd. There are armed agents and I wonder if this isn’t TIGTA being under the same budgeting. That money could have easily been used better elsewhere though.


[going off the top of my head and beer-mathing this]
($725k+20%bulk discount)/80¢rnds self-defense ammo= 1.1M rounds
Using FIB qual (see below) of 50 rounds per qual, 1 training shoot, 1 qual shoot, twice a year… that’s 5,437 agents of the IRS authorized to tote steel.
WTF does the IRS need with 4 battalions worth of door kickers?


Don’t forget the other agencies in the Fed Gov that old Barry boy armed up…Wonder what his pal Val is up to with her Crescent worshiping crowd. We know which side Barry will take when the flare goes up.


The back side???

jeff LPH 3 63-66

Like Dan Bongino says, all democrats are not republicans and all or most republicans are democrats. 15 right there.


RINOs gonna RINO.


Isn’t there some kind of law that voids anything signed while
mentally impaired?


I would like to see a state attorney challenge that in court.


Not a single paragraph, sentence, word, or punctuation mark of this bill, addresses anything that would have stopped the Buffalo, Uvalde, or any other murderous shootings.

I am surprised, that midnight basketball was not included…



I have not read the statute, but I understand that it redefines who must have an FFL so that if one sells a certain number of guns within a year and makes some profit on the sales, then the seller must hold an FFL or be guilty of a felony. Why is our government constantly redefining us in statutes to make us potential felons for otherwise lawful behavior?


Because the “guilty” are far easier to rule over than the innocent… seems there’s a better quote on the subject in “1984” or something similar


Or, as former KGB officer Peter Deriabin wrote about Soviet life in his book, “There are only three kinds of people: Those who have been in prison, those who are in prison and those who will be in prison.”


Fair point


Before I chose to retire, I was concerned that none of my military training had prepared me for an acceptable civilian career; crime was the only path I was properly prepared for.

So early into this administration, anything I want to do will likely be criminal, anyway.

Herbert J Messkit

So an 18 to 21 year old who moves out of his parents home, gets a job, maybe gets married, may have to live in a sketchy neighborhood, will be limited in defending his home.
I’ll believe they’re serious, when an inner city grandmother or girlfriend goes to prison for a straw purchase for some gangbanger


Not gonna happen… wrong demographic


Or the 19 or 20 year old National Guardsman, who happens to be a machine gunner in an infantry unit. He gets to fire machine guns during training, but can’t buy a semi-auto pistol or semi-auto rifle?


That seems reasonable….All about making sure only the “right” people have guns.. Just like Mao said

Thats the one


If there’s a carve-out in that bill for military personnel, that could prove to be a big boost for recruiting…

President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH Neande

Probably not.
Was thinking along parallel lines, that this bill/law would HURT recruiting. If no 19-21 y.o. is allowed to purchase/posess a gun, why join the military?


to see the world?


to meet chicks?

How is being an 18yo in the Army, and being issued a gun any different than being an 18yo who gets a gun from their 21yo boyfriend?


I’m fairly certain there will be so many qualifiers on that exception as to make it impossible.


Ol’ Poe is never in favor of any Democrat legislation reducing the right of American citizens owning and bearing arms for the simple reason that the Dems are never satisfied and when you yield one time, they’re going to take another run at you soon for even more restrictive laws. Take that to the bank.
That being said, Poe is also considering that Republicans got caught in a risky position with such a horrible shooting involving school children occurring four months before midterm elections. Republicans already have a sizable deficit among the Soccer Moms voting bloc but have been hopefully watching that deficit shrink because of the Democrat’s ongoing abysmal attempts at governing.
But it is those same Soccer Moms who react most emotionally to those shooting deaths and Republican tacticians may see standing firm against any congressional response as ill-advised regarding that cohort. (con’t)


(con’t) It is possible that those tacticians see it advantageous to play the longer game, placating those mothers now to regain control of Congress, thus robbing the Dems of a campaign issue and ensuring no packing of the Supreme Court. That will allow the strict-constructionist justices to remain the majority and strike down all the limitations on our 2D Amendment rights that now exist in all the blue states.

 🤔  🤔  🤔  🤔 


That’s one possibility, Poe.
But I don’t think that is the case for Cornyn – he’s from Texas, and his popularity here is way behind Cruz’s who is standing firm on this issue.
Unless you ask in Austin, but that’s a San-Fran wannabe city right now.


GB, Cornyn, son of an AF colonel, has served Texas well for almost four decades as a conservative district judge, associate justice of the Texas Supreme Court, Texas Attorney General and US Senator for Three-plus terms, which is why Poe (who voted for him in some of those elections) thinks there is more to this current situation than meets the eye.

If Cornyn were genuinely “selling out” the interests of Texas gun owners, other powerful Texas Republicans would be calling for his head, which, interestingly, has not been the case. And yes, he was booed at the Texas GOP convention but how many of those booing would be high enough in the party’s command structure to be aware of such high-level political maneuvering?

We’ll just have to wait to see how this plays out… 🤔 


Austin, Houston and Hell Paso are the Blue State sh*thole section of Texas.

Skivvy Stacker

I haven’t let my Representative give me any kind of snow job. Every time she sends out a form letter about how much she has done to “stop gun violence” I send an e-mail filled with FACTS about how gun laws have never worked, how whatever gun laws we DO have aren’t being enforced, how there are no such things as civilian “assault weapons”, or “gun show loopholes”, and just for good measure, how she isn’t going to fool me with all of her Unicorn, moon dust, sunshine up my kilt bullshit she keeps trying to peddle.
For some reason, she never writes back.


One of her flunkies just drops your letter in the round file next to her desk.
