The House Just Passed A SECOND Extreme Gun Control Bill

For the second day in a row, gun-grabbers in the US House of Representatives have passed an extreme gun control bill.

Yesterday we reported that the House of Representatives voted to pass H.R. 8, the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019, which would require background checks for all firearm sales, including private transactions and purchases made online and at gun shows. Currently, only federally licensed firearms dealers, importers, and manufacturers are required to conduct background checks on customers under federal law.

We also reported that the House would be voting on another gun control bill this week – H.R. 1112, the Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2019, which has been nicknamed the “Charleston Loophole” bill:

That bill would extend the amount of time firearms dealers must wait for a response from the background check system before the sale can proceed to 20 days. Currently, they can make the sale if they haven’t received a response in three days. (source)

The National Rifle Association (NRA) warned that H.R. 1112 is “worse” than H.R. 8:

Under that bill, gun sales from licensed dealers would be subject to the discretion of federal officials. Through either malice or incompetence, the legislation creates an unworkable system where gun buyers could be placed in an endless loop of background checks and would never actually receive the firearms they wish to purchase. (source)

Today, the House voted to pass H.R. 1112 on a largely party-line vote of 228 to 198.

Rep. Debbie Lesko, a survivor of domestic violence, attempted to amend the bill to keep the three-day time limit on background checks for domestic violence victims trying to buy a gun, reports USA Today:

“Do we really want to tell victims of domestic violence they have to wait up to 20 business days,” the Arizona Republican asked, “before they are allowed to adequately defend themselves?” (source)

The NRA published a statement in response to the vote, which reads:

“The anti-gun politicians in the House of Representatives continue to employ the shameful tactic of exploiting tragedies to market gun control that won’t prevent criminals from committing murder.  It’s a sham and the Charleston Loophole bill is the perfect example of their dishonesty. The assertion that a supposed 10-day delay would have prevented a crime that took place over 60 days after the initial delay is ridiculous.  This legislation would not have prevented the Charleston murders, and even worse, the legislation is so poorly drafted it would put law-abiding citizens who need a firearm for self-defense at risk by trapping them in an endless loop of delays. The NRA will continue to fight for the constitutional right of law-abiding Americans to defend themselves and their families without apology.” (source)

The Republican-controlled Senate is very unlikely to pass the bill, and as we reported yesterday, President Trump would likely veto it anyway:

In a statement, the White House announced it opposed the bills for violating Second Amendment rights.

“The extensive regulation required by H.R. 8 is incompatible with the Second Amendment’s guarantee of an individual right to keep arms,” the statement reads. “By overly extending the minimum time that a licensed entity is required to wait for background check results, H.R. 1112 would unduly impose burdensome delays on individuals seeking to purchase a firearm.”

The two bills are expected to pass in the House, but would then need to be approved in the Senate, where Republicans hold a majority. In its statement, the White House suggested President Trump would veto both pieces of legislation if they pass the House and Senate.

The gun grabbers are NOT going to stop.

The gun grabbers in Congress are not going to stop trying to take away our rights. They will continue to chip away with insidious measures. We will see continued efforts to diminish our rights.

And the worst thing is, they’ll call it “common sense” measures. Terminology like that sets it up so that anyone who objects is a nutcase. It makes it seem as though those of us who demand our rights be unfettered are fringe lunatics instead of self-reliant, law-abiding citizens.

This bill may not pass this Senate. If they pass it, President Trump will most likely veto it.

But this is a sign of things to come. They’re not going to stop and imagine if we have a gun grabber in the White House.

They ARE coming for our guns. Don’t let anyone fool you.

  1. Marbury v. Madison if a law is found to be in conflict with the Constitution, then the law is invalid

  2. If you don’t already have a gun, get one!
    Preferably a mil pattern rifle since those are extremely effective for defense.
    The US has no borders and the majority of those arriving (illegallly) have low IQ’s, no devotion to our Bill of rights, nor a clue of the benefits of a limited government.
    This newly arriving horde will vote as most morons do; Democrat.
    This will spell doom for our property and gun rights.

    • Sorry Dave but you comment needs more detail .
      “If you don’t already have a gun, ..” Go to the nearest gun sale (not shop) get a handgun for you and each of your family members. Try to get all the same calibre, makes ammunition and reloading easier. Get a shotgun for close defence, even your wife and child can use them. Get a rifle for holding off the horde. You won’t win, but you get to take a whole lot with you.
      Do it now before you have to be registered.
      Then take your whole family down to a gun school and learn how to use them safely.

  3. God gives me the right to have guns to protect my family and myself, not a group of crooks that were elected to office by vote rigging. rigged voting machines, illegals and dead people voting.

  4. The USA is now an immoral bankrupt warmongering police state flooded with illegal immigrants.

    Americans either don’t know or want to know that the US is collapsing or think that nothing can be done to save the USA.

    There is also a group of people like Thomas Paine, Patrick Henry, Gandhi, MLK, Snowden, and Assange who see the problems of the world and cannot stay silent even when speaking up is risky.

    If you see the problems with the US and are having trouble sleeping at night, now is the time to say something.

    The collapse is real and is getting worse by the day. The problems will not go away. Even if we cannot save the USA, we must at least try to wake people up and prepare them so that they can be allies when the US Ponzi economy collapses, the civil war breaks out, and the elites start WWIII.

    What good would money do if you end up in a concentration camp?

    One way to raise awareness about the collapse is to make and pass out business cards with links to:

    https://www.theburningplatform.com

    http://www.returnofkings.com

    You should also start a website today with links to pro-freedom sites like the Infowars, Lewrockwell, Blacklistednews, Zerohedge, Whatreallyhappened, Cato, Mises Institute, Judicial Watch, Institute for Justice, Heritage Foundation, the Hoover Institution, ACLU, Libertarian Party, NRA, the Birch Society, militias, and John Stossel, Ron Paul, and John Whitehead articles to get the word out. Every freedom website will increase awareness and bring more people to our side.

    Most people know something is wrong, but they don’t know what and feel hopeless about what to do. The best weapon Americans have against the elites is our numbers.

    The 1% can use all of the power of the media, corporations, Hollywood, Wall Street, and the government to defeat the patriots, but we must try. You have to live with your conscience.
