20 Years In Jail For Selling a Gun to a Pot Smoker

New Senate bill imposes punishment for “trafficking” firearm to “prohibited person”
Paul Joseph Watson


A draconian new gun control bill in the US Senate could see people who unknowingly sell guns to pot smokers be sent to jail for up to 20 years.

S. 54, or the Stop Illegal Trafficking in Firearms Act, introduced by Judiciary Committee Chairman Pat Leahy (D-VT), “would impose a 20-year prison term if you planned ("conspired") to purchase a firearm in order to give or raffle it to a person who, unbeknownst to you, is a "prohibited person," reports Gun Owners of America.

Under 18 U.S.C. 922(d)(3) and (g)(3), marijuana smokers are considered “prohibited persons” because it is illegal to possess a firearm if you are “an unlawful user of … any controlled substance.”

The list of “prohibited persons” would also include some 150,000 veterans because a psychiatrist appointed a fiduciary to oversee their financial affairs.

The bill would also make someone a “prohibited person” if they are barred from owning a gun under state or local law, meaning citizens of places like New York and Chicago, who have to obtain licenses to own guns, would automatically become “prohibited persons.”

“Why do anti-gun senators and representatives continue to push language which they know is fatally flawed --- just so they can say they "broke the back of the gun lobby"? asks GOA, which is encouraging its members to contact their Senators and urge them to vote against S.54.

Despite the seemingly draconian nature of the bill, the New York Times recently described Leahy’s legislation as a “modest gun safety measure.”

The Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday postponed its work on gun control legislation in order to give senators more time to generate support for the bills, including Leahy’s legislation as well as California Senator Dianne Feinstein’s controversial assault weapons ban.
