Washington D.C. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Today, Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) sent a letter to the United States Senate Judiciary Committee informing it that abrogating fundamental rights are not within its purview.

“I write you today on behalf of the Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC), a non-profit organization that promotes maximal individual liberty and sound public policy through litigation, research, education, grassroots outreach, and direct advocacy regardingH.R. 1808, the “Assault Weapons Ban of 2022,” and the policies contained therein. FPC Law, the nation’s first and largest public interest legal team focused on the right to keep and bear arms, and the leader in the Second Amendment litigation and research space, has reviewed H.R. 1808 and found it to be grossly violative of the rights of the People protected under the United States Constitution. FPC thus strongly opposes H.R 1808 on its merits and rejects its contempt for the natural rights of the People….”

FPC’s letter spotlights the arrogance and immorality of attempts to vote away fundamental rights away from the People.

“For a legislative body to suppose that it can abrogate the human rights of the very people that delegate limited, enumerated powers to it is the height of conceit. Especially following the United States Supreme Court decision of N.Y. State Rifle & Pistol Ass’n v. Bruen… to even propose such a measure is to show unbridled recalcitrance and disrespect to the People the Congress serves. And to consider this legislation, which would if enacted, increase state violence by orders of magnitude and put peaceable people in government cages for exercising their rights, is an act of tyranny. We urge you to terminate this awful and contemptible legislation.”

The full letter to the United States Senate Judiciary Committee can be read here.

Excellent.

These degenerates in gov who corrupt the country and habitually violate the Constitution have no authority to rescind our rights, and it is our duty to rebel and expel them from their posts.

The problem is that they do have the power only because the American people have and will continue to do nothing. I have asked this before in this comment section “Who Will Lead Law Abiding Americans To Remove Those Elected Who Have Abused Their Power”. If the democrats could legally put a match to the constitution they would.The fact is the power brokers the elite have the democrats using the lower courts to pick away daily at the constitution. Our guaranteed or God giving rights in that document is the only thing that stands between the United States becoming a… Read more »

“Who Will Lead Law Abiding Americans To Remove Those Elected Who Have Abused Their Power”.

If that leader is not present, we just have to individually carry our weapons every day and live by the rule of fair play.

A human may choose to play the lawful game if that game is well regulated. If that game is cooked, he may choose another path.

The elite in power continue to degrade our civil rights to wield more power using the democrats as their junkyard dogs. Hunter Biden joined his dad on an Air Force One flight to South Carolina Wednesday for a family vacation.
Very disturbing

Any law passed by these clowns that is not constitutional is to be ignored . FJB

swmft

it cant be a law if it violates constitution ,time to take out the illegal jim crow crap and dump atf and fbi

Within its purview or not, voting away rights seems to be the legislative, as well as the bought and paid for public initiative system, norm when it comes to the RKBA.

Sure, it can be litigated and hopefully rescinded, but how much time will have passed? Given enough time, a large amount (if not a majority) of people will believe an unconstitutional “law” is valid and that the removal is the problem, no matter how just the removal.

In the mean time rights will be suppressed with the supressors simply piling more and more upon the backs of the public.

Sadly, media is predicting “a change of heart” among the electorate, declaring that the Democratic party will NOT suffer a meaningful defeat.
The uninformed peoples will just go along and vote as they always have believing that voter fraud could never happen in the USA.

Something I said a while ago, if Election 2022 is as fusterclucked as 2020 was, we just might be looking at a Civil War.
The country won’t survive another 2 years of this Bull Schit, and if they’re allowed to fabricate votes as needed in 2022, Elections will be over.

Bill

Amen! More reasons to vote responsibly in Nov, and to guard against voter fraud!

Mystic Wolf

This hr 1808 is about the worst thing that can happen to this country, that law if enacted will make every semi-auto illegal and will reclassify them all as machine guns even the pistols would be classified as a machine gun. As I have said one more than o e occasion , Let’s call these dems what they really are, SATAN WORSHIPPING DEMONCRATS, these DEMONS they do not serve the people they only serve themselves they got this idea that they are the people and that o one else matters but them. Almost all those that are in office follow… Read more »

It’s NOT going to happen. What IS likely to happen (or happened) while gunners were wringing their hands over a go-nowhere bill is the “Inflation Reduction Act” to further impoverish the middle class & enable IRS to ramp up oppression of conservative groups & donors, which can yield big election “losses” & theft, THEN much gun control can pass.

Anyone know the real status of the “IR” Act? I’ve heard it may still be subject to filibuster on reconciliation. If so, we need to focus on THAT.

Chuck

It passed as Reconcilliation with VP Harris breaking the tie. Piglousi has it, and has just enough votes to pass it, forever F*cking America over. I haven’t heard of it’s passed the House yet.

Ugh.

this GOV’T REGIME – needs to remember “who pays their salaries & benefits ” AND REMEMBER WHO HAS THE “MOST GUNS” <– WE THE PEOPLE !!

First American Revolution over taxation without representation.
Second American Revolution over taxation BY representation…..and a plethora of tyrannical transgressions.

They are well aware….hence, their fetish with gun control

Imagine living in a country were proven information undisputed proven information is then fact checked on the internet said to be false.That’s when revolving circle of propaganda begins and the truth becomes extinguished. Maricopa County, Arizona, hands off ballots that they claim were valid to a private company. The CEO of the vendor Jeff Ellington, Runbeck Election Services“MC INBOUND – RECEIPT OF DELIVERY,” as well as a listed date of Nov. 4, 2020, Megan Gilbertson, a spokesperson for the Maricopa County Elections said that nothing illegal happened. Why should the American people believe her or Rubin Election services based on their say… Read more »
