BELLEVUE, WA – -(Ammoland.com)- The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms has come out in support of the compromise gun bill Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) came out with.
“If you read the Manchin-Toomey substitute amendment, you can see all the advances for our cause that it contains like interstate sales of handguns, veteran gun rights restoration, travel with firearms protection, civil and criminal immunity lawsuit protection, and most important of all, the guarantee that people, including federal officers, will go to federal prison for up to 15 years if they attempt to use any gun sales records to set up a gun registry,” said Alan Gottlieb of the CCRKBA.
“These advances for gun rights can not be made unless we win the Senate vote on Tuesday to substitute Senators Manchin and Toomey’s balanced approach for the current draconian background check bill that is pending before the Senate at this time,” he added.
