Pelosi Calls GOP ‘Xenophobic’ For Amendment Requiring Gun Sellers To Notify ICE When Illegals Buy Guns

On Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called House Republicans “xenophobic” for inserting a provision in a House bill that would require [gun] vendors conducting background checks to notify Immigration and Customs Enforcement when the buyers was an illegal immigrant.
Clearly, the Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee don’t care about preventing gun violence, they simply are playing politics with Americans’ Second Amendment rights. The fact that Democrats do not want law enforcement notified if an individual attempting to purchase a firearm fails a background check is truly troubling. In rejecting this Amendment, the Democrats have shown their true colors. It is clear they are not interested in preventing gun violence or stopping the illegal purchase of firearms, but rather they are only interested in limiting the rights of law abiding citizens to advance their own political agenda.

So Democrats want private sales between legal citizens to be subject to background checks, but they don't care if an illegal alien tries to buy a gun, gets denied, and then goes and buys one on the black market...when we know nothing about these illegal aliens or their intent.

It’s illegal for those in the country without legal status to have firearms, but an average of more than 10 a day try anyway.
