We’re tracking three bills that have been voted out of committee and onto the house floor.

  • H.R. 1236, the “Extreme Risk Protection Order Act of 2019″: This bill would provide grants to help state, tribal and local efforts to remove firearms from individuals determined to be a danger to themselves or others. There is no due process to this. All it takes is a mere accusation and you will lose your gun rights and have all your guns taken. Angry neighbor? Messy divorce? No more guns for you.
  • H.R. 1186, the “Keep Americans Safe Act”: This bill would regulate ammunition feeding devices that hold more than ten rounds, such as a magazine or belt. The bill would make it illegal to import, sell, manufacture or possess such devices. No grandfathering here. Turn them all in.
  • H.R. 2708, the “Disarm Hate Act”: This bill would prevent a person convicted of a misdemeanor hate crime from obtaining a firearm. What is a “misdemeanor hate crime?” Who knows. It’s very broadly defined.

The PA Senate Judiciary Committee will be holding hearings on Gun Control Wednesday September 25, 2019. NRA has yet to alert on this issue yet. We are keeping an eye open.
