Fairfax, VA – -(AmmoLand.com)- The NRA will support legislation that improves school security, promotes mental health services, and helps reduce violent crime.

However, we will oppose this gun control legislation [2022 Bipartisan Safer Communities Act] because it falls short at every level. It does little to truly address violent crime while opening the door to unnecessary burdens on the exercise of Second Amendment freedom by law-abiding gun owners.

This legislation can be abused to restrict lawful gun purchases, infringe upon the rights of law-abiding Americans, and use federal dollars to fund gun control measures being adopted by state and local politicians. This bill leaves too much discretion in the hands of government officials and also contains undefined and overbroad provisions – inviting interference with our constitutional freedoms.

Decisions by the Supreme Court of the United States in the Heller and McDonald cases make clear that the Second Amendment is an individual constitutional freedom. We will always fight for those freedoms – and the fundamental values we have defended for over 150 years. ​

Yeah, the NRA needs money to finance further fund raising which will cover most of Wayne’s and the board’s ridiculous spending with little action to oppose the new legislation. GOA is the future if we have one. The NRA is so corrupt, I don’t see how it can be repaired in it’s current form.

SCOTUS 6-3 strikes down NY permit BS law today.
Hopefully we see more states pass Constitutional Carry as a result. (Which is the Right I already have) strange how we have to pass laws for things that are already in the Constitution.
The NY Government needs to go F themselves. Along with WLP

There is a surprise.

The NRA most be out of money, and need to steel from their members & patrons again, to line their pockets all over. “Nobody” Trusts the NRA anymore, to stand up for what is right for the pro gun and 2A community. the NRA has lost all credibility with any gun community. They may as well be the Politicians that they are suppose to be fighting against. “Nobody” has any faith in the NRA and they are damaged goods, and I don’t think they can ever reconcile what they have done to the firearms community. Abolish gun legislation and all… Read more »

Too little, too late.

Feinstein has already added an amendment to this bill to raise the gun purchase age on rifles to 21. These RINOs opened the door and democrats will use the door to drive a bus through and get ever bit of gun control they have always wanted.

If the satan worshipping DEMONcrats have their way with things we will soon loose all of our rights, the satanic demon party only has one thing on that collective mind they have and that is to take every last gun we have and turn the people of this country into SLAVES to the government. The swamp monster biden and those that pull his strings HAVE ONLY HATRED FOR THE FREEDOMS ENSHRINED IN THE CONSTITUTION, they want and need to burn every last part of the CONSTITUTION so they can put the new one in place. The satan worshipping DEMONcrats have… Read more »

I hope asshat Cornyn strokes out before the final vote.

Ope

Former NRA announces opposition to tyrannical gun legislation ? Really ? I wonder if POS and traitor Cornyn will keep his A+ rating with those thieving SOB’s ?

The key to whether NRA actually opposes it, even if a day late and a billion short of dollars grift-wasted off members, is whether all the “Republican” turncoats are heavily downgraded & opponents supported in the next primary. When LaPew does a wink-nod-reacharound-rollover deal then pretends to oppose, grades are never lowered.

If NRA gave a F about stopping this it would announce NOW that those who collaborated on the “compromise” have been taken down at least a full grade, and those who vote for cloture or for the bill itself will get at least 2 full downgrades IMMEDIATELY, and vigorously opposed in their next primary.

The legislation never should have been written in the first place it protects no one. More feel good politics from the elected.

Mystic Wolf

This bill is from the party of satan, the DEMONcrats.

Well would ya look at that! The NRA FINALLY thought it was a good idea to OPPOSE gun control rather than support it! It’s a Christmas miracle!
