House Democrats are Pushing Gun Confiscation Hard, Will GOP Compromise?
Gun banners are using the recent Midland-Odessa, Texas, shooting to strip you — and all law-abiding gun owners — of your God-given, constitutionally-protected rights.
You’re shocked, right?
Well, you knew this day would come. The House Judiciary Committee will soon be meeting to pepper Republicans with three.
But as we’ve mentioned to you in recent weeks: We know the House Democrats can pass virtually any gun control measure they want.
The real challenge is to make sure that House Republicans don’t join them. Because if they do, then that will cause Senate Republicans to defect in large numbers.
And if only 13 GOP Senators turn to the “dark side,” gun control will pass both chambers of Congress.
We’ve already seen, in recent weeks, Republicans like Dan Crenshaw of Texas say they might support a “red flag” law.
This is why we need to keep hammering House Republicans and urge them to hold firm.
The House Judiciary Committee was supposed to begin consideration of three gun control proposals today, but Hurricane Dorian has postponed the meeting until next week.
So here are the three gun control measures that we will be battling.
1) Magazine bans (H.R. 1186). This bill would ban all magazines with a capacity of over 10 rounds. If this bill were to pass into law, gun owners across the country would have to pray that they were never forced to defend themselves and their families against multiple attackers — as evidenced in Florida, Texas or Missouri.
2) “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation Orders (H.R. 1236/H.R. 3076). We’ve talked a lot about this legislation already. This bill would allow an angry relative or former boyfriend/girlfriend to petition a court to strip you of your gun rights, with nothing but a list of unsubstantiated allegations.
This is exactly what happened to Gary Willis of Ferndale, Maryland, and he was shot by police during the execution of the gun confiscation order.
3) Pervert Protection Act (H.R. 2708). Finally, this so-called “hate crime” bill would impose a lifetime gun ban on gun owners for non-violent actions — primarily because they held views Democrats don’t like.
