This is one very important fact that must be considered any time people say universal background checks will make us safer. But before we get into that fact, let’s take a look at where they will lead if ever enacted in the United States.
Today, we have background checks on the vast majority of gun purchases. The “loopholes” that are used by some to purchase firearms are actually protections necessary to prevent an oppressive government from making criminals out of law abiding citizens. Currently, if I want to go to a gun shop and buy a firearm, my background is checked before the purchase can be completed. That’s fine. I don’t like it, but at least it’s relatively painless.
Now, let’s say I want to loan this gun to my buddy who is about to go on a long, solo trip and doesn’t own a firearm. That’s fine. What he does with that firearm may end up coming back to haunt me as an accomplice if it’s deemed I loaned it to him knowing his criminal intent or if I negligently allowed him to use it when it was clear he would commit a crime, but if he gets pulled over with it in a state that does not allow him to carry, I’m in the clear.
Universal background checks would make me a criminal for wanting to help my buddy remain safe. Even if he didn’t commit a crime with the firearm, simply giving him access to it temporarily would be grounds to charge me with a gun felony. Some say that’s the price to pay for safety, but here’s the thing. There have been no instances of mass shootings which would have been prevented if universal background checks had been in place. Zero. None.
This is how we know with a certainty the intention of universal background checks is not for safety purposes. The left (and a growing number of people on the right) have been conned into thinking this is about safety when in reality it’s a necessary step to gun confiscations. For the left to achieve their goal of mass or even total confiscations, they need a national firearm registry. To get a national firearm registry, they need every gun owner to submit to a background check. To get every gun owner to submit to a background check, they must first implement universal background checks.
Some say UBCs are a “slippery slope” that “could” lead to gun confiscations. The reality is this: UBCs are 100% certain to lead to total gun owner background checks, which will become a gun registry, which be the tool used for confiscations. This is unambiguous and there is no other possible motive for progressives.
One might say, “But Republican lawmakers don’t want gun confiscations.” This is true for the most part. In fact, there are still a quiet minority of Democratic lawmakers who also do not want them. But in this politically charged environment in which emotions are driving the gun debate, it’s politically expedient for politicians to “do something” before their next election. At least that’s what they believe, though an easy argument could be made that if the people understood what UBCs entailed compared to the current system, a majority would oppose them.
As President Trump considers backing UBCs, it’s imperative that his base lets him know that we absolutely do not want them. They are the next step in the path to inevitable gun confiscations. The only way to stop them is to stop UBCs today.

New Conservative Network Seeks Crowdfunding Help
They say we have to go big or go home. We’re trying to go big and bring the patriotic truth the the nation, but we need help.
Readers may or may not realize that over the past year, we’ve been bringing more conservative news and opinion outlets under our wing. Don’t take our expansion as a sign of riches; all of the “acquisitions” have been through sweat and promises of greater things to come for all involved. As a result, we’ve been able to bring together several independent media sites under a unified vision of preventing America from succumbing to the progressive, “woke,” Neo-Marxist ideologies that are spreading like wildfire across America.
The slow and steady reopening of America is revealing there was a lot more economic hardship brought about from the Covd-19 lockdowns than most realize. While we continue to hope advertising dollars on the sites go up, it’s simply not enough to do things the right way. We are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).
To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $3000-$7000 per month. In other words, we’re in the red and hemorrhaging.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring the truth to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going.
Thank you and God Bless,
