Default Rigel wants to pass Obamas Gun Control

This is on the gun wire tonight.

Rep Rigell is from VA.

He is co-sponsor in this bill:

H.R.452 -- Gun Trafficking Prevention Act of 2013. (Introduced in House - IH)

National Association for Gun Rights says Rep. Scott Rigell “wants gun owners in a federal registration system”

Quote:
U.S. Rep. Scott Rigell, R-2nd, is being targeted by a pro-gun group for supporting for "Obama’s gun control."

The National Association for Gun Rights aired an ad in Hampton Roads earlier this month criticizing Rigell for co-sponsoring legislation that would increase penalties for people who illegally purchase firearms or transport them across state lines.

"Rigell also wants gun owners in a federal registration system," the ad said.

We wondered whether Rigell, who boasts a pro-gun background, really has endorsed a federal gun registry. The congressman, in a news release, dismissed the charge as "laughable."

Who in the world would knowingly transfer a firearm to known felon other than another felon? A feel good law that doesn't accomplish Jack.

Sec. 932. Trafficking in firearms

`(a) Offenses- Except as provided in subsection (b), it shall be unlawful for any person, in or affecting interstate commerce,--
`(1) to purchase, attempt to purchase, or transfer a firearm, with the intent to deliver the firearm to another person who the transferor knows, or has reasonable cause to believe, is prohibited by Federal or State law from possessing a firearm;
`(2) in purchasing, attempting to purchase, or transferring a firearm, to intentionally provide false or misleading material information on a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives firearms transaction record form; or
`(3) to knowingly direct, promote, or facilitate conduct that violates paragraph (1) or (2).
