2022 Senate Gun Control Bill Expected At Any Time for a Vote

WASHINGTON, D.C. -(Ammoland.com)- The gun control framework is complete, and both sides have come to an agreement. The Senate is expected to use another bill from the House of Representatives as a vehicle to pass the gun control package more quickly.

The news came early Monday morning that the barriers between Democrats and Republicans on the framework have been breached. Republicans and Democrats agreed to a framework both parties could live with and believe could be sold to their bases. The bill is expected to be filed late today or tomorrow.

The parties have agreed to use a House bill as a vehicle to help it clear any further roadblocks preventing the gun control measure’s journey through Congress. Under Congressional rules, the Senate can take a House bill and strip it of its language and substitute a Senate version of the language. This method could see the bill skip the usual steps of review, debate or discussion that a bill must pass to make it to the President’s desk sooner than later.

According to the Punch Bowl, The central sticking point in the gun control negotiations had nothing to do with firearms or due process problems with Red Flag gun confiscation laws. The major roadblock was federal funding for abortion. Republicans wanted language included in the bill that prevented any of the federal grants in the bill from going to pay for abortions. This clause is known as “Hyde” language, named after pro-life Republican Senator Cyndy Hyde-Smith.

Senator John Cornyn from Texas led the Republican side of the negotiations along with nine other Republicans. Senator Chris Murphy led the Democrats in the debate. The bill has the blessing of both Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Rick Scott (R-FL) are expected to back the bill. The bill’s bipartisan support gives it a super-majority saving the gun control measure from a filibuster in the Senate.

If the bill gets filed by 5:30 pm EDT Tuesday, June, 21st 2022, Sen. Schumer can set into motion a vote and move the bill back to the House, where the House can accept it or reject it. The House is expected to overwhelmingly support the bill. The next step will be for the gun control measure to head to the desk of President Joe Biden to sign into law. The President has expressed support for the framework and is expected to sign it once it reaches him.

If the bill isn’t filed by 5:30 today, Schumer will have to wait until tomorrow to move for a vote on the proposal. Sources in the know tell AmmoLand News that Senator Schumer is pushing to get the bill today. With the language worked out, it isn’t a matter of if the gun control bill will be introduced. It is just a matter of when it will be brought to a floor for a vote.

Right now, it looks like a sure thing that that bill will pass, but gun owners are still encouraged to reach out to their Senators and Demand they vote no on the gun control measures.

Am I the only one who wonders why there’s little resistance to infringements on the 2nd amendment compared to the 1st? Folks can infringe the 2nd with little objection, but if you belittle the1st, you’re headed for the middle pits of hell! I support most of the provisions of the 1st amendment, but without the provisions of the 2nd, your chances of needing the 1st are reduced considerably. BE PREPARED!

During the 2020 election for the Texas senate seat that was up for vote: 1,934,047 votes were cast during the primary for all the Republican candidates on the ballot (Cornyn received 76% of the votes); and 5,962,983 votes were cast during the general election for Cornyn. People had their chance to work hard to get good candidates for the primary and to work hard to get the vote out. Not enough people were involved. Cornyn had made his support for more gun control clear in 2018, but too many people didn’t bother to even show up to vote him out at… Read more »

Well, if the GOP votes yes to this, I’m changing my Party Affiliation to Independent. I will no longer support the Grand Old Pussies party financially or with my vote. They collectively dropped their pants, bent over, and grabbed their ankles. They didn’t even have the cajones to demand lubricant.

As far as I’m concerned, the next Revolution can’t come soon enough.

ALL GUN LAWS ARE INFRINGEMENTS

14 Republicans voted yes on gun Control: Vote them out! Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) Rep. Todd Young (R-Ind.)

Four of these are retiring, the rest have years to go, and by that time, NRA will let them keep their phony A grades.

More of the same by the elected and their influences the elite. Legislation that is unconstitutional based on a political agenda not the safety of all Americans.

American Cynic

Red Flag laws are vague, and someone’s mental health is purely subjective. If it can be abused, the Democrats will figure out how.

I can tell you with certainty, Democrats do not believe that Republicans are rational, and at some point, “irrational” (or being Republican) will be good enough for them to raise a “Red Flag”!!

DDS

A 100% accurate comment.

What is interesting about it is that if you swap the words “Democrat” and “Republican”, it remains 100% accurate.

ShooterOne

Any senator or representative that votes for this bill should never receive a vote from a gun owner. It infringes on the right of any gun owner to own and bear arms.

jack mac

It should be emphasized this Bill and all similar infringes the right of all private citizens. There should be no issue between those possessing arms and those who currently do not.

ExGob

10-4! There should never be a vote relative to any amendment to the Constitution except to amend the amendment or eliminate it completely. We live by the dictates of our Constitution and it’s amendment’s. They are the ultimate law. We are not allowed to select and abide by only those that suit our personal desires.

The number of armed self-defense incidents is probably way higher, due to unreported events. I know in my instance, a guy pulled a knife on me, and rudely asked for my money. I drew my S&W 442 and demanded his knife. He didn’t advance, dropped his Kershaw assisted-opening folder and I didn’t shoot him in the back (fair trade) I also didn’t call the police. That Kershaw knife is my EDC to this day.

These RINOs supporting the bill are allegedly doing so to make gun control a lesser issue by giving the Democrats (in Congress and in the public) something and being able to claim that they did something positive on gun control. They claim they are doing this in order to defuse the gun control issue in the upcoming elections and concentrate on the piss poor economy and inflation. If they are telling the truth (highly unlikely) they are missing the boat and any chance of reelection. Most of us see what they are doing as blatant hypocrisy, which it is. The… Read more »

“RINOs” typically get elected because they support never-ending, forced wealth redistribution (in its many, many forms).

Many people who are pro firearm rights and consider themselves “conservatives,” also support fundamental socialist policies on forced wealth redistribution and yet more government interference in the private sector. Some even whine when others point out that those views are socialist. There are many examples right here on Ammoland.

JSNMGC

The statists just crack me up.

Lysander Spooner

Right? They’re all for funding the military industrial complex, the prison industrial complex, and the police state. They’re all for having half their paycheck stolen so long as it goes toward something they think isn’t socialism. How many of the guys who “support the 2nd amendment” still comply with all of it’s infringements? I’m not even talking about Anarchists or Libertarians. I’m talking about guys who consider themselves constitutionalists, who support unconstitutional polices every day.

JSNMGC

It’s interesting to watch. There are not two sides (like a piece of paper) to the politics in modern America. It’s more like a dodecahedron.  There are people here who, day after day, rail against “Marxism,” “Socialism,” and “Communism” because they think to be a Marxist, Socialist, or Communist means you are anti-firearm rights. Some of the same people who use those terms advocate for the core principles of those ideologies (forced wealth redistribution by the government, progressive tax structure, government price controls, lots of laws, lots of armed government employees charged with selectively enforcing those laws, etc.). They have not read… Read more »

musicman44mag

You are absolutely right when it comes to what they are trying to do. We both realize that it is a loss to the 2nd amendment supporters and a gain to the leftist Marxist Nazis but what little they do concede will never be enough so why bother giving anything. Is the left doing anything to show they meet in the middle or are giving anything to the republican conservatives? Like turning all illegals away and sending them back to Mexico? Are the left agreeing to not giving funds to sanctuary states? Is the left agreeing to jailing people breaking… Read more »

Armed government employees with arrest powers fail miserably (again – this time in Uvalde) and the response is: More armed government employees with arrest powers; and More power given to the government to send armed government employees with arrest powers to confiscate the firearms of people who are not charged with a crime (because a crime was not committed). Reaction from many in the firearm community: Demand to double the number of armed government employees with arrest powers; and Refusal to get involved in politics (because they don’t want to be “manipulated” into doing so). People are just begging for… Read more »

Exactly! I feel like I’m living in the movie Idiocracy. People are still doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different outcome.

Once again, the governments answer to crazy people,is to pass MORE laws that restrict law abiding citizens. If criminals are already ignoring existing laws, what makes you think they will care how many more you pass? Pretty soon, you have passed so many laws that nobody can keep track of them. Words written on paper do NOT stop bad people from doing anything. You don’t put them in prison when they do get caught. If by some miracle they do get a stiff sentence, some woke judge will let them out and put them right back on the streets. We… Read more »

The problem here in Florida, where we have two RINO senators who are likely to vote “yes” to the legislation, is that Democrat rivals are even worse and I doubt we can even primary them out of office at this point. I have already signed petitions to Rubio, (up for re-election this year) and Rick Scott (2024). Rubio knows that he will probably get re-elected in November and Scott already approved Florida Red Flag law when he was governor so we know where he stands. Sad.

Scott has always been crooked he is as slimy as they get

What a turncoat Cornyn has become. He needs to go..

JSNMGC

Turncoat?

Cornyn has been in favor of yet more firearm laws for a long time.

He declared unequivocally prior to the last election that he supported yet more firearm laws.

The Texan Republican voters who want more firearm laws came out and voted in the primary. Many Texan Republican voters who don’t want more firearm laws (or who were willfully ignorant about Cornyn) stayed home.

There were three times as many Republicans who voted in the general election for the Texas senator position as there were who voted in the primary.

musicman44mag

I can’t believe that Texas would elect someone like this or that Kentucky would either. It’s a shame that we are being lied to by both sides and deceived by both sides on a daily basis.

JSNMGC

Cornyn was transparent. He wanted more gun control and said so prior to the last election.

Too many pro firearm rights, Texan, Republican voters stayed home during the primary and the Republican voters who wanted more firearm laws came out and voted for Cornyn.

Cornyn is in office because of sloth (on the part of voters) not deception (on the part of Cornyn).

musicman44mag

You have to look at things on a whole basis. Not just the one. Kinda like wealth redistribution. Thinking of others and not just yourself. It amazes me your whining about how our government system works or about people that have a different opinion than you have socialist tendencies and claim to be conservative and keep pounding on it day after day. I guess you haven’t noticed yet almost everything you say gets down votes. It’s a shame that you cannot equate the down votes are saying that people are tired of you.

JSNMGC

The downvotes are from statists who like firearms.

“Thinking of others,” in terms of charity, is done voluntarily by individuals in a free civilization. In a socialist/communist environment, it is done forcibly by the government.

If you had an open mind, you would read more about the danger of the socialist policies you support.

Lysander Spooner

Try to keep track of the gun law under the walnut shells as they are swished round back and forth. The Senate will take an already passed law from the House, remove the original language, slide the (unknown) gun law stuff in it’s place, and vote for the whole mess at about 3 oclock in the morning.

“The group announced a framework deal more than a week ago. But talks had bogged over a few issues, including whether to include “Hyde Amendment” language to prevent the proposal from being used to pay for abortions. Asked if the abortion impasse had been overcome, Cornyn said: “Yes. I believe so. Hyde applies.”
