Veterans Disarmament Bill Could Come Before The Senate At Any Time
The McCarthy/Schumer Gun Control Act (formerly HR 297) was re-introduced to the House as HR 2640; and was passed with a voice vote! Now it heads to the Senate. Corey Graff, Executive Director of Wisconsin Gun Owners, has written an exhaustive analysis of The McCarthy/Schumer Gun Control Bill. Of this attempt to expand the unconstitutional NICS database, Graff says:
"An honest examination of this multifaceted issue reveals that an expansion of NICS buys into a dangerous false premise for all gun owners concerned about their liberty and is not sound policy or good politics for the Second Amendment community or anyone else. Here's why gun owners must not only oppose expanding the NICS background check system, they must fight to repeal it."
The LPCO is working along side the National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR), Gun Owners of America (GOA) Rocky Mountain Gun Owners (RMGO), and the Military Order of the Purple Heart (https://www.purpleheart.org/) in OPPOSING HR 2640.
“For the first time [in history, HR 2640], if enacted, would statutorily impose a lifetime gun ban on battle-scarred veterans.”
