U.S. Senate Rams Through Procedural Gun Control Vote

Jun 21, 2022

Sen. John Cornyn and Sen. Chris Murphy gun control bill introduced and voted on within 3 hours

Washington, D.C. – Tonight, the U.S. Senate introduced and voted on an 80 page gun control bill within less than 3 hours. The bill, known as the Bipartisan Safe Communities Act, passed an initial procedural vote by 64-34 tally. A vote on final passage in the U.S. Senate is expected before the end of the week.

“This is dark moment in the fight for our Second Amendment rights, but we aren’t giving up – we’ll only double down in our opposition,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights. “Thanks to the treacherous work of anti-gun Republicans Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn, tax payer funding for Red Flag gun confiscation and de facto gun bans for 18-20 year old Americans is now closer to becoming reality than it ever has been in American history.”

Text of the 80 page Bipartisan Safe Communities Act was introduced Tuesday afternoon and voted on before the evening’s end. The legislation implements federal Red Flag gun confiscation funding, imposes a new misdemeanor gun ban, expands the NICS registry for 18-20 year olds, and criminalizes the private sale of firearms for scores of law-abiding Americans.  

“This bill was negotiated in bad faith and every so-called pro-gun Republican Senator who signed on to it should remove their signature, oppose the bill, and vote NO. Anti-gun Democrats are already saying this gun grab is just the start and that this won’t be enough for them. If the Senate passes this bill the floodgates for every single gun ban imaginable will become a reality – and Republicans like John Cornyn will own it in full.” concluded Brown.

The National Association for Gun Rights opposes all federal gun control legislation, and is calling on U.S. Senators to vote NO on the Bipartisan Safe Communities Act.  The National Association for Gun Rights is asking its 4.5 million members to call the Congressional Switchboard and tell them to oppose all gun control in the U.S. Senate.

The National Association for Gun Rights is the nation’s largest “no compromise” pro-gun organization, with 4.5 million members nationwide.
