Trump Moves Congress to Pass Massive Gun Control Package.
USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Following yet another tragic school shooting in a Gun Free Zone, President Trump is opening the floodgates on gun control, urging GOP leaders in congress to ban certain gun parts and “enhance” the so-called background check.
As Wisconsin Gun Owners has been warning, Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn is attempting to make a name for himself with a “common sense” gun control package that will give the National Instant Check System the ability to deny your right to buy a gun for completely arbitrary reasons based on phony science and so-called “mental illness.”
Yesterday, House Freedom Caucus co-founder Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) correctly stated that such legislation “would allow bureaucrats and administrators to take away an individual’s Second Amendment liberties, and something that fundamental you’ve got to have a court make that decision to give due process to American citizens.”
Jordan is correct: There is currently no due process with NICS, so it is dangerous and irresponsible to feed even more data into the machine, none of which will stop school shooters from getting guns but WILL stop you from getting guns.
I think it’s a mistake to punish gun owners for the criminal acts of others.
But what I don’t know is whether Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson and House Speaker Paul Ryan will stand their ground.
I doubt they will, unless you and I act fast and show them the light.
Just how bad is the situation?
Trump Declared: “I will be strongly pushing Comprehensive Background Checks with an emphasis on Mental Health. Raise age to 21 and end sale of Bump Stocks!”
And according to a Feb. 15, 2018 story (Paul Ryan on Florida Shooting) in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Ryan was confronted by reporters about making the background check system more powerful and seems to be conceding.
“He added that Congress may need to take action to make sure people with mental illnesses don't ‘slip through the cracks’ and get guns,” reported the Sentinel.
“If there are gaps there, then we need to look at those gaps,” Ryan said.
In other words, Paul Ryan is keeping the door open for more gun control. Historically, that never ends well as far as your gun rights are concerned.
1. Call Sen. Ron Johnson and Rep. Paul Ryan and urge NO CONTROL – no ban on bump stocks, no to Sen. Cornyn’s misguided NICS background check “mental illness” bill, and no to cutting any deal even if said deal includes so-called national concealed carry reciprocity. Don't fall for this trap.
2. Please consider a donation to Wisconsin Gun Owners (WGO) right now. Unless WGO has the resources to fight this backroom deal by the GOP, you can expect more incremental loss of liberty. A donation of $50, $100, $500 or more is critically needed right now. Click here to give
P.S.- President Trump is talking out of both sides of his mouth, trying to keep gun owners appeased, while at the same time buckling under pressure to appear “reasonable” to anti-gunners by banning bump stocks and turning the already bad NICS background scheme into a nightmare program for national disarmament with no due process. Please contact Sen. Johnson and Rep. Ryan at the numbers above. And even more critical, help out Wisconsin Gun Owners with a donation today. We can't count on the institutional gun lobby to do the right thing, it's up to us. Please click here to give
