SCOTUS Gets it Right, Congress Gets it Wrong

The title says it all. IMG NRA-ILA

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- On Thursday, SCOTUS released a historic decision in the NYSRPA v. Bruen case when they found the Second Amendment protects the right of law-abiding Americans to carry a firearm outside of the home. Despite the hysteria from many gun control extremists, this is a step in the right direction that simply provides good people the ability to protect themselves and their loved ones outside their home.  Regrettably, just across the street from the Supreme Court at the Capitol, Congress took a step backward when they passed a gun control package that infringes on the rights of law-abiding Americans. This gun control package will now move to President Biden’s desk, where he’s expected to sign it into law.

We are deeply disappointed in the passage of this gun control bill.  The NRA joins the rest of America in trying to help curb violence across our country. This is why we support school safety with dedicated resources at the federal level, an investment in better access to, and quality of, mental health care, increased funding and support for law enforcement, and a firm position on gun crime with serious penalties for those who break the law.

The NRA cannot and will not support senseless gun control measures that some in Congress have already said is just a first step that “paves the way” for additional gun control that will only infringe on the rights of the law-abiding. These measures were hastily jammed through with ambiguous language and overbroad definitions to appease gun control supporters in Congress.

Behind the façade and the contrived talking points of safety, school security and mental health, this is a gun control bill. That’s why the NRA strongly opposed it.

What do you expect when you have a bunch of baboons trying to make law, BTW a bunch of baboons is called a congress. What we have destroying our rights is once again a bunch of baboons, they know nothing about what the country needs but does what they want to the nation. What we need is more crime control when you have a murderer only spend 2 years out of a life sentence in jail that is not keeping the nation safe. Those that have committed murder and are in for life give them a choice live in a… Read more »

When the people cry the right tune and the Congress listens to the tune they react with writing bills and get them approved…these bills were ripe and ready to be the law since 30 years have past on the last bill…a new generation of adults and antigunners who haven’t lived long enough to understand gun rights…

Your local newspaper probably tilts to the left as most do. But maybe a little more or less than mine. So YMMV, but as I scanned this morning’s “Miami Herald”, I was looking for something in particular. Not one article on gun control, the Second Amendment, or SCOTUS’ handling of the NYSRPA v Bruen case. The first and only article related to Roe v Wade’s or abortion rights didn’t show up till page 6, and that was more focused on some lady who apparently misread her speech. After four days of outrage, it would appear that at least some part… Read more »
