Nancy Pelosi’s gun control bill just passed a major hurdle that is bad news for gun owners
Gun-grabbers are more emboldened than ever.
Some Democrats have even called for the outright repeal of the Second Amendment.
And now a gun control bill is on the move and that could result in outright confiscation.
H.R. 8, the so-called “Universal Background Checks” Bill, passed the U.S. House Judiciary Committee this week.
The bill will inevitably pass when it comes up to a vote in the full House.
H.R. 8 would mandate background checks on all firearms purchases. This is code for National Gun Registration.
Not only that, but any attorney general or local official could increase the price of a background check to effectively price Americans out of buying a firearm.
Imagine if you had to pay for a $5,000 background check before you purchased a firearm.

The Daily Caller reports:
WASHINGTON — The House Judiciary Committee passed legislation known as the Bipartisan Background Check Act Thursday that would mandate background checks on all gun sale transactions and most transfers in the United States.
“This is a bill that will expand criminal background checks to close the gun show loophole and close the Internet sale loophole,” Democrat Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries said of the bill.
With the support of five committee Republicans and after nine hours of debate, the bill passed 21 to 14. Republicans on the Committee attempted to amend the bill.
Democrats, however, voted down one such amendment that would notify ICE authorities when an illegal alien fails a background check to purchase a firearm.
Nancy Pelosi is eager to vote on gun control.
The big question is if Republicans will fall for it.
The left has previously used mental health screenings and backgrounds checks as back door schemes to implement gun control.
Now they’re feeling more emboldened after taking back the House.
If Second Amendment supporters aren’t careful, self-proclaimed “pro-gun” politicians won’t hesitate to stab them in the back.
