Bankruptcy and gun ownership
A bill in congress would exempt firearms from claims by creditors in case of bankruptcy. So, I could convert some assets to expensive NFA weapons, file bankruptcy and profit. Ok, that wouldn’t work. My only debt is my house and you get to keep that. I could see someone trying something like that though.
However, I don’t inherently have a problem with the logic. After all, other items are exempted for legitimate reasons. Cars so you can travel, for instance. Gun so you can defend yourself doesn’t seem that out of line.
The Violence Policy Center and The Brady Campaign quickly marched lockstep with the talking point that someone going through bankruptcy is more likely to be stressed and start killing people. There’s no proof of that, they just say it.
Of course, I guess they’d both know a bit about the mindset of someone facing bankruptcy.
