The House Judiciary Committee is set to vote on a package of gun control bills during a special markup meeting this Thursday
Today, the House Judiciary Committee scheduled a special markup for June 2nd to debate and vote on a gun control bill in the wake of the Uvalde, TX tragedy. The bill, H.R. 7910, includes language to ban standard capacity magazines, raise the age limit of law-abiding adults who can purchase semi-automatic rifles, ban homemade firearms, ban firearms accessories, and impose a national standard for firearms storage.
“Never let a tragedy go to waste – it’s what the anti-gun Left does best — especially when it comes to ramming gun control through Congress,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights. “It’s not surprising that House Democrats are pushing such an extreme bill, but it’s particularly sad that they’re using national tragedies to fuel their radical agenda. We should be passing laws like the Safe Students Act which repeals deadly ‘gun free’ zones instead of shredding our constitutional rights.”
Last year, House Democrats passed H.R. 8, their bill to funnel all firearms sales through the federal government and force law-abiding Americans into the NICS database.
H.R.7910 goes significantly further, and is a clear attempt to throw multiple anti-gun bills before Congress as an attempt to sway Republicans into supporting their gun control plans.
“We oppose H.R. 7910 and our members will be lobbying their lawmakers to vote NO on this rights-destroying legislation. Criminals do not obey the law – they don’t care and won’t be hindered by this asinine piece of legislation. But law-abiding citizens and normal Americans who want to defend themselves and their loved ones will be made into criminals for simply wanting to exercise their Second Amendment rights,” concluded Brown.
The National Association for Gun Rights opposes H.R. 7910, and is urging all members of the Judiciary committee to vote NO.
The National Association for Gun Rights is the nation’s largest “no compromise” pro-gun organization, with 4.5 million members nationwide.
