U.S. Sen. Doug Jones said he is a hunter and wants to protect Second Amendment rights, but noted he would like background checks with exceptions and funding for federal studies for a broad range of gun violence, including suicides.

Jones, who is in the state during the Congress' two-week congressional break, came to the Daily Mountain Eagle Monday for multi-media interviews over its print, YouTube and podcast formats. The YouTube interview will also be linked to its Facebook and Twitter accounts.

There is no delegated authority in the U.S. Constitution for the central government to regulate infrequent private transfers of legal property. Private transfers are not commerce. If a person engages in an enterprise that is indistinguishable by volume from a full-blown business, that person is required to have an FFL, or may be prosecuted for dealing without one.

If the state wishes to impose a universal background check system, it is free to do so within the constraints of its own constitution.

But a U.S. Senator should know better than to advocate for a national law that is unsupported by delegated constitutional authority.

As an Alabamian, I apologize to everyone for Doug Jones. This is what happens when stoopid repukes gain party members choose a really crappy candidate in a special election; republicans stay home and this Jones dipstick is elected.
In for one and done.

Most Alabamian do NOT endorse Jones' gun control ideas.
He said he was moderate.

He's a libtard!! !!!! !!!

Liberty is not a means to a political end. It is itself the highest political end. LORD ACTON
