Anti-Gun Legislation Moving

Posted by on Mar 10, 2021 in Legislative

The U.S. House is set to vote on two restrictive gun control bills as early as tomorrow, and Brian Fitzpatrick needs to hear from us, as he is anti-gun despite being a Republican. Neither H.R. 8 or H.R. 1446 would do anything to reduce crime, and they are anything but “common sense” proposals. H.R. 8 would ban private transfers of firearms and make federally licensed dealers the only entities that can transfer firearms. It would make it illegal to lend a firearm to someone, even temporarily. HR 1446 would allow the FBI to delay firearms transfers for up to 25 days. Currently the...

How Crazy Have Things Gotten?

Posted by on Sep 11, 2019 in Legislative

This crazy: Nearly a Third of Democrats Say It Should Be Illegal to Join the NRA. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that nearly one-out-of-three Likely Democratic Voters (32%) favor declaring the gun rights group a terrorist organization in the community where they live. Fourteen percent (14%) of Republicans and 20% of voters not affiliated with either major party agree. It can’t be argued that hating on gun owners is any longer just a fringe position. A third of Democrats, many of which are probably your family and neighbors, are telling pollsters...

Legislative Alert for 9/11/2019

Posted by on Sep 11, 2019 in Legislative

Federal 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...

“No One Wants to Take Your Guns, You Paranoid Nut”

Posted by on Mar 6, 2019 in Legislative

Just want a few “common sense” gun control laws, you see. No one wants to take your guns. That’s just crazy talk. Making guns illegal is not a mainstream viewpoint. Certainly no legislature of any US state would ever endorse such an idea: WHEREAS, under this “individual right theory”, the United States Constitution restricts legislative bodies from prohibiting firearm possession, or at the very least, the Second Amendment renders prohibitory and restrictive regulation presumptively unconstitutional; and Repeal the 2nd Amendment? Who is seriously proposing that?...

HR 8 and HR 1112 Up This Week

Posted by on Feb 26, 2019 in Legislative

Gun control bills HR 8 and HR 1112 are up in the US House of Representatives this week. Please see this analysis about HB 8. This is not about background checks. If they had wanted to just address background checks, they’ve had plenty of opportunity to do that, but they keep pushing for a standard where all gun transfers are illegal except under narrow exception. Even lending someone a gun, for instance to pass qualifications at our club, would become unlawful. Currently under Pennsylvania law, loans are permitted between holders of a valid License to Carry. Federal law makes no such...

Don’t Believe It Can’t Happen Here

Posted by on Jun 11, 2018 in Legislative

Those of you who live in New Jersey are probably well aware that licensing of gun owners is a ratchet that will always tighten, and never loosen. Even if they don’t technically tighten requirements for the license, each new law takes out more and more gun owners at the margins, until we can’t effectively fight back. Confessions of an English gun enthusiast: His license was revoked because of unsubstantiated accusations and because the police didn’t like his YouTube channel promoting shooting.
