house Bill H.R. 1397

Should ICE Be Notified When an Unauthorized Immigrant Attempts to Purchase a Gun?

Argument in favor

It makes sense for ICE to be notified when unauthorized immigrants are denied gun purchases due to their immigration status. This will help enforce both immigration and control laws.

Sounds rather obvious that if an illegal alien is purchasing a gun ICE should be called.

They aren’t citizens, & aren’t here legally. They shouldn’t be allowed to purchase guns. I love how the people that cry for strict gun control for actual citizens are the same ones saying “No” to this. Once again putting illegals far above actual Americans. I wouldn’t expect anything less though. Hypocrisy is a cornerstone of the moronic far left.

Shouldn’t authorities be notified when ANYBODY tries to buy a gun?

Argument opposed

Reporting unauthorized immigrants to ICE shouldn’t be one of firearms sellers’ responsibilities. Immigration enforcement belongs with federal agencies, not with private citizens.

Why isn’t anyone notified when a mentally ill white person purchases a gun? Last I checked “illegal immigrants” aren’t the ones causing mass murders

How about those universal background checks that 80+% of Americans want? Or the National Weapons Registration Databank? There are a dozen better ideas in gun safety that are not racist false flags to stir up the xenophobics and the ignorant.

What stable genius thought this up? You already have to be a citizen or permanent resident to legally purchase a gun in the US. Gun shop owners know their jobs and don’t need more regulations placed on them. ICE should get the same notification every other law enforcement agency gets when anyone who shouldn’t be buying a gun tries to buy a gun. Should ICE get a special report? No. Should ICE get a report based on racial profiling? No Are undocumented immigrants going to line up to fill out the paperwork required to purchase a gun in a store? No. If someone wants to buy a gun regardless of immigration status they can do so without going through a background check in most every state in the Union. Pass the Bipartisan Background Check Bill not some stand alone partisan grandstanding effort that is already included in the larger bill.

    We need a national data base to monitor every gun sale. We do it for automobiles, it’s not that complicated.

    Ok, this has the SMELL more of demonizing immigrants, rather than any serious gun control legislation: more BS.

    Yes ICE should be immediately notified! Our Constitution / Second Amendment Rights only apply to Citizens. Illegal aliens have no business possessing a firearm.

    WHY NOT DO THIS FOR THE MENTALLY ILL, THE PEOPLE ON THE NO FLY LIST, THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN ABUSERS OF ANY KIND, ETC. What a ridiculous republican Smoke & Mirror attempt to cover up that they are the problem not immigrants. Have you seen any immigrants causing mass murder?? NO. ONLY HONE GROWN TERRORISTS - WHITE NATIONALISTS, ISIS SYMPATHIZERS, ETC. RIDICULOUS.

    This legislation is so pointless and simple-minded. What happened to a national database that shares information with all agencies of law enforcement? Ice should be informed when a white American purchases a gun, because those are the peeps killing all of the students in our schools and committing mass murders. Republicans, YOU are the weakest link.

    I think local law enforcement can easily handle this kind of situation. ICE does not need to be notified. This bill doesn’t really solve anything and it seems to be based on the false idea that somehow non-citizens are uniquely dangerous when U.S. citizens are more likely to commit crimes than non-citizens. Maybe ICE should be notified when a white male tries to buy a gun illegally since that demographic is the most likely to commit mass shootings!

    What problem are we trying to solve here, that is not already managed through the background check? More Republican grandstanding for the base, which does not think things through. No.

    “CLINE” HOUSE BILL H..R. 1397 AKA the “NOTIFY ICE Act” I strongly recommend and Support the passage of the “CLINE” HOUSE BILL H..R. 1397 AKA the “Notify ICE Act” which would require authorities to notify U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) when an unauthorized immigrant is denied the ability to purchase a firearm through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). Federal law only allows U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents to buy firearms. It makes sense for ICE to be notified when unauthorized immigrants are denied gun purchases due to their immigration status. This will help enforce both immigration and control laws.

    They are here illegally. Thus, attempt to purchase a gun should be reported.

    Yeah if an illegal immigrant is dumb enough go buy a gun legally, then yes ICE and the local police (who should be cooperating with ICE) should be called this way the person can be arrested and held until ICE can arrive to send them back to wherever they came from with a one way ticket.
