House-Passed NDAA includes Anti-Gun Provisions

U.S.A. -( The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed its version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the annual defense bill that directs funding for our nation’s military. Unfortunately, this year’s bill contains two anti-gun provisions opposed by NRA-ILA.

The first provision, included in the bill by Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA), would ignore due process protections afforded by the U.S. Constitution and allow for the confiscation of firearms owned by those in the armed forces.

The Speier language would allow the military judicial system to issue ex parte protective orders that prohibit firearm possession. In other words, military personnel could be forcibly disarmed of their lawfully-possessed firearms before having so much as an opportunity to contest the accusations against them and present evidence in their defense. This would represent a clear denial of constitutional due process protections for those who have sworn an oath to protect and defend our country and the U.S. Constitution.

The second provision, offered as an amendment by Rep. Norma Torres (D-CA), would undo components of two export-reform regulations crafted by the Trump Administration. The regulations were designed to enhance the competitiveness of American companies in the firearms and ammunition sectors, remove burdens for gunsmiths and other small businesses, modernize export controls, and enhance national security.

Instead, the Torres amendment would empower anti-gun legislators to inject politics into what is normally an administrative exercise handled by subject matter experts, leading to unnecessary delays and costs to otherwise legal transactions. The amendment passed by a vote 215-213.

Anti-gun provisions like those included in the House-passed NDAA are glaring examples of the challenges law-abiding gun owners face with a Nancy Pelosi-led Congress. However, the fight is not over. The U.S. Senate has yet to consider their version of the NDAA, and both chambers will need to iron out any differences between their respective bills before it becomes law. NRA-ILA will continue to fight against the inclusion of these anti-gun provisions in the final bill.

Ammoland, please remove the damn prompt wanting me to accept all cookies. Your site worked fine before this annoyance and I do not wish to “accept” it. No reason you cannot put an “X” in the corner to make this go away.

Deplorable Bill

Yup, pelouzy, the communist in thinly veiled disguise, can’t get any honest legislation done, she has to put in something anti constitutional into every thing she does. Pelouzy is a traitor and a tyrant and corrupt in every sense of the words. She should be arrested, held without bail, tried and when convicted, hanged till dead as per our constitution. Tar and feathers to be used as prison clothing until sentence is carried out. Do you remember what president Truman said about rich politicians?

Arm up and carry on


truman was talking about fdr ,and he was right control freaks. I dont tell people what to do :and wont tolerate some one trying to tell me what to do


Trump is wealthy.

Truman supported FDR’s socialist agenda, as did most American voters at the time (unfortunately).

Kinda getting used to it (~:


Nra-ila , “claims” they are fighting the inclusion of these provisions in the final version of this bill.

Other than merely publicizing these provision, please tell us, specifically, just how you are “fighting” these provisions.

No congressman who swore an oath to “…support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion…” would have voted for this trash.


Funny how the NRA leaves out the fact that they supported red flag laws like the ones in this bill.

Now they’re suddenly “anti-gun provisions”?

There were also 135 Republicans that voted for this bill. Funny how the NRA refuses to call out those congressmen.


incorrect. despite certain media reports and GOA assertions this simply not true.
if you were a member you would know the NRA does not support any proposed red flag law. none.


I’m a Benefactor Member and you’re either lying or you didn’t watch the video I posted of Chris Cox flat out saying they support Enhanced Risk Protection Orders a.k.a. red flag laws.
