Below The Radar: H Res 702

Question and Answers Call Take Action Protest

United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- You might notice we have touched on resolutions recently. While they do not have the force of law, they can be a very potent way of shifting public perception – and with that shift in public perception comes a shift in votes, in the legislatures at the state level, in Congress, and at the polls on Election Day.

One particularly dangerous resolution is H Res 702, introduced by Representative Ayanna Pressley (D-MA). Pressley, one of the members of “The Squad” that gets so much airplay from the mainstream media, has made a serious propaganda play aimed right at our Second Amendment rights with this resolution.

For starters, look at the title of the resolution: “Recognizing that the United States has a moral obligation to meet its foundational promise of guaranteed justice for all.”

As a propaganda move, it is not too shabby. The 31-page resolution contains a massive laundry list of left-wing statements of “facts” and then offers what they consider as solutions for Pressley’s idea of what constitutes “justice.” You have to go to the end of page 25 and the top of page 26 of the PDF to find the portions that affect our Second Amendment rights.

Those two paragraphs, though, should disabuse Second Amendment supporters of any notion that will get anything but injustice from Pressley, if she had her way. Take a look at what she demands on the gun issue.

She starts off by saying she wants to reduce “gun violence” by “regulating manufacturers.” Of course, she’s trying to convince people gun manufacturers aren’t regulated with that line. The many federal, state, and local laws that are in force (see the NRA-ILA summaries) say otherwise.

Pressley goes further, to also call for “limiting firearm production and sales, including a permanent ban on assault-type weapons.” Now, we have discussed the injustice of these bans on multiple occasions, notably with schemes like those put forth by Elizabeth Warren, Beto O’Rourke, and Eric Swalwell.

Representative Pressley isn’t done, though. She also calls for “a mass gun buyback program.” Now, she doesn’t say whether or not it is mandatory, which Beto O’Rourke (now Joe Biden’s “gun czar”) was calling for in the wake of the El Paso mass shooting, but the word “mass” indicates she wants to take a lot of guns away.

One of the giveaways can be seen in some of the laws she has co-sponsored. Among them are the Gun Records Preservation Act (the House version of the Tiahrt Restrictions Repeal Act), the House version of Warren’s anti-Second Amendment monstrosity, and the Disarm Hate Act. She can also be expected to be a reliable vote for anything that advances an anti-Second Amendment agenda.

H Res 702 would be a huge advance for an anti-Second Amendment agenda. Second Amendment supporters need to contact their Representative and politely urge them to oppose this resolution.

True. Unconstitutional ‘gun control laws’ work because it is easier to kneel than to ignore and resist. All across America, Americans blithely obey the unconstitutional ‘gun control laws’. Again, WHY are there not 5 million angry Americans in D.C. protesting the communist democrats and their agenda?
Oh, yeah….cowardice.
FREEDOM IS NOT FREE. So, nut up, Americans, and act like our Founding Fathers.
The PEOPLE are the masters. Our SERVANT government is NOT our master.

Just another liberal POS that lies for a living and shows the pure hatred and ignorance of the laws no less the constitution. Another clown for the bus of DemoRATS telling false stories and flagrant lies. Needs to disappear.

Spot on comment, Valkyrie 14. Just wonder though, how can people such as Pressley, Omar, and AOC get elected in America? Omar should be censured for immigration fraud, stripped of her citizenship and deported. AOC needs to go back to slinging drinks, which was the only real job she had prior to being a parasite in Congress. We have to do everything possible to take back the House, expand seats in the Senate, and re-elect President Trump. With RBG and Brier circling the drain, President Trump could get two more originalists on the Court.

@JB, Omar’s district is all Somali. That population was brought into Minneapolis by Lights for Liberty nationwide protesters (by Republican hating, ICE-bashing radicals) and a subgroup known as the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service. LIRS played a key role in  organizing demonstrations against President Donald Trump’s deportation enforcement actions targeting some 2,000 illegal immigrants. Brazen hatred of cops and ICE agents were on display at the open-borders protests by LIRS,  Code Pink, and Lights for Liberty.   The CEO of LIRS, Krishanti Vignarajah, is a former Michelle Obama policy director, who led the Lights for Liberty event in Washington, D.C.… Read more »

Any assertion that guns are poorly regulated in the US is sheer bunk. The only industry more regulated than guns here is nuclear energy. There are two products which manufacturers and/or importers may not sell directly to the public , and they are on-road vehicles and firearms. Purchasers of said products must go through federally licensed dealers .

There was an episode of “FBI Most Wanted” that had a firearms manufacturer selling directly to the public. He was also selling to an obvious straw purchaser. This is absolute crap and a flagrant lie. TV shows such as this should be boycotted. The Left has totally taken over popular culture, academia, and media. Hell yes, firearms are regulated. Too much.

– No idea why someone down voted you here. I countered that down vote. Much as I like a snuggly pit bull I’m partial to other breeds. Like with cars where I prefer to have a car which looks like it is sitting still at 100mph, I prefer a dog which strangers assume is friendly – but is also protective when appropriate.
