U.S. House of Representatives RUSHES to Pass New Gun Control

Ban Guns Black Rifle Protest Protestors
Istock

BELLEVUE, WA – -(Ammoland.com)- In their zeal to create the impression they are taking action in the wake of two horrible mass shootings, the House Judiciary Committee will hold a special session later this week to talk about the so-called “Protecting Our Kids Act,” but the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms says this is just reheated leftovers from the long-used gun control menu that has proven to have been a failure.

The 41-page bill (embedded below) encompasses a wish list of gun control measures, including raising the minimum age for purchasing any semi-auto rifle or shotgun to 21 years. It prohibits straw purchases, which are already illegal!? It mandates serial numbers on all firearms, ostensibly to track so-called “ghost guns,” but it sounds suspiciously like a backdoor effort at gun registration and a prohibition on being able to make your own firearms. The bill will require so-called “safe storage” of firearms, which seems unenforceable at best. It bans so-called “large-capacity” magazines, which are actually standard equipment for modern semi-auto rifles and most semi-auto pistols. There is also a section on bump stocks.

“We have very serious misgivings about this legislation,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “especially about the bum’s rush certain members of Congress are using. Congress needs a cooling-off period. We’ve seen in the past how hasty action has resulted in bad legislation, and we shouldn’t be in a hurry to pass something so we can see what’s in it.

“There is much in this bill that smacks of a registration scheme,” he continued. “There are only two reasons to register guns, to tax them, and ultimately to take them, by confiscation, or by passing more legislation at a future date which will outlaw what people can legally own today.

“If this is a reaction to Buffalo and Uvalde,” Gottlieb noted, “we’ll remind the authors those crimes did not involve ‘ghost guns’ or ‘bump stocks’ or firearms the killers accessed because they were not properly stored. In both cases, the murder suspects bought their guns at retail and passed background checks. They willingly violated several existing laws in order to carry out their heinous crimes. Both perpetrators left warning signs on social media, yet it is the law-abiding gun owners, including honest young adults, who are being penalized.

“If we can’t stop this legislation in the House, we will stop it in the Senate, and if it gets past the Senate, we will likely challenge it in federal court,” he concluded.

The minute they beak their oath to the constitution and American people, these people are traitors and should be immediately treated as such and led right out the door and hung, Voting them out doesn’t work any more as they have put their interests ahead of the people and they work for the communists .

THEY ARE NOT “OUR” representatives. The minute they violate their oath of office which covers SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED they have declared WAR against us and they are our ENEMIES. He who attempts to get another man into his absolute power does thereby put himself into a state of war with him, it being to be understood as a declaration of a design upon his life; for I have reason to conclude that he who would get me into his power without my consent would use me as he pleased when he got me there, and destroy me, too, when… Read more »

You are on your own to protect yourself today The US Supreme Court has made it clear that law enforcement agencies are not required to provide protection to the citizens who are forced to pay the police for their “services.” In the cases DeShaney vs. Winnebago and Town of Castle Rock vs. Gonzales, the supreme court has ruled that police agencies are not obligated to provide protection of citizens. In other words, police are well within their rights to pick and choose when to intervene to protect the lives and property of others — even when a threat is apparent. In both of… Read more »

Oh the importance of the 2A.

CourageousLion

WHAT “importance” is it? You as a living sentient being have the UNALIENABLE right to defend yourself BY WHATEVER MEANS NECESSARY 2nd amendment OR NOT.

Wild Bill

While what you say about the Right of self defense not depending on the Second Amendment having it written into such an important document is, both, significant and consequential… lest later politicians, and judges say that the Right does not exist.

Knee-jerk reaction, of course, and the DemonRats seeing an opportunity to further their disarming of America. How is it they suddenly care about kids, have time to write gun control bills and vote on them but don’t have time to take care of gas prices, food prices, inflation, and the supply chain problems? They don’t care about kids or the American people. Biden doesn’t believe in harding the schools. Guess that would prevent more shootings to help push their agenda. If they really cared they would support harding the schools and as another person said, support ending Roe v. Wade.

CourageousLion

Any time you hear the bullshit that the media and government talking heads have to say about mass shootings, and want YOU to turn in your semi automatic rifles, remember this…SEVENTEEN little children and a total of SEVENTY NINE people died in WACO Texas at the hands of the psychopathic control freaks that run this country. And THEY were armed with FULL AUTO weapons as they assaulted a church full of people on some horseshit pretext. If that isn’t a good enough reason to have an AR 15, I DON’T KNOW WHAT IS!

Making irrational decisions due to feelings instead using logic never works out well but gun grabbers are never rational and let feelings rule thier lives . Logic is a better way of dealing with horrific situations but people who let feelings rule thier lives are not capable of logic or rational thinking .

I Haz A Question

If this was truly “to protect our children”, the Dems would be supporting the reversal of Roe v. Wade.

swmft

they would be pushing the faster program

Along with school hardening.

Here is a recent message I sent to our local Sheriff Department…the response I got back? CHEEP, CHEEP, CHEEP… Greetings Sheriff Tim, I want to be involved. I am willing to donate 10 hours a week to protect the children of Boone County. I have the skills and am quite capable of defending anyone that is around me. BUT you will need to make sure I “qualify”. What we need to do is start a SRO back up squad. If enough people volunteer 10 hours a week, which a lot of us senior citizens can do, we can sign in… Read more »

The school security that really works is armed & trained teachers & staff.

SROs, SWAT & hardening are costly placebos. See Uvalde, Parkland.

Right On!!!

What is far worse this is happening while we are all awake and just watching. The democrats are the problem this is a plan of action to disarm all Americans. There will be more horrific acts of violence as democrats turn hardened criminals back on our streets. There own system failed as the shooters court records were sealed because he was a minor . That is the biggest mistake not to have taken corrective action to insure that obtaining a firearm for those minors with death on their agenda can not ever get a legally owned gun. Democrats want to… Read more »

Democrats are not the problem. There are three groups who are the problem: Anti-firearm rights politicians (Democrats, Republicans, and others) The people who vote for anti-firearm rights politicians (Democrats, Republicans, and others) The people who enforce never-ending gun control laws – federal, state, county, and city/town employees (Democrats, Republicans, and others) U.S. Representative (Republican) Adam Kinzinger, a United States Air Force veteran and currently a Lieutenant Colonel in the Air National Guard, says he is open to an “assault weapon” ban. “Kinzinger said an ‘extra license’ or ‘extra training’ may be required to own weapons like an AR-15. He also… Read more »

LMFAO, yep. John is a Kool-Aid gulper, lol.

It’s not exactly a secret. All the data is readily available.

People focusing on only a subset of the problem is odd.

Without reading his “true Scotsman” argument, I’d say that since “no McTavish was ever lavish” — that ARs are the perfect Scottish firearm. Even inexpensive ARs are reliable and far more accurate than I, they can be customized for any user, they can be adapted to fill multiple rolls, and they typically use ammo among the cheapest. Perfect for a skin-flint Scotsman.

JSNMGC

I was referring to the general argument that Democrats are the problem and that any Republican who is in favor of yet more gun control is not really a Republican, he is just a Democrat who “infiltrated” the Republican party. That view is a logical fallacy commonly referred to as “No True Scotsman.”

Russn8r

Not a fallacy if there’s a true R platform & history and those we call RINOs/Undocumented Dems sabotage it. What do you hope to achieve with this line?

The D party is 100% anti-gun.

The L party is de facto anti-gun via anti-borders, unlimited immigration & invasion-occupation, overwhelms our voting control, ends sovereignty, jacks pop density to levels that inevitably destroy gun rights.

The only party not 100% anti-gun & open-border is R. So the only hope of saving the USA is getting control of it & ousting infiltraitors.

JSNMGC

Some people believe all that is required is that “we” take back the House, Senate, and White House.

Most Republicans in the federal legislature depart from the party platform on some issues. Purists are the exception.

We need good Republicans, not just Republicans.

The main reason we don’t have more good Republican politicians is too many Republican voters want a big government and forced wealth redistribution (in its many, many forms).
