Please Urge Your U.S. Representative to Oppose Biden and Pelosi’s Gun Control!
The U.S. House is scheduled to vote on two restrictive gun control bills this week, H.R. 8and H.R. 1446. Please contact your U.S. Representative today and urge them to oppose this misguided legislation!
H.R. 8 would impose so-called “universal” background checks on law-abiding gun owners. So-called “universal” background checks will never be universal, because criminals do not comply with the law. H.R. 8 cannot be enforced without a federal gun registry, will not prevent crime, and will turn otherwise law-abiding citizens into criminals for simply loaning a firearm to a friend or many family members. Common firearms transfers would become crimes under this bill, resulting in penalties of up to one year in prison and/or a $100,000 fine.
H.R. 1446 would turn a constitutional right into a privilege and eliminate the necessary three day proceed to sale provision under the federal background check system. In its place would be an indefinite delay on exercising a constitutional right simply by the inaction of the government. The three-day default transfer window is a deliberate safeguard of a constitutional right, not a loophole. Adding arbitrary and indefinite delays will wrongly affect millions of people and make it more difficult for law-abiding Americans to defend themselves and their families.
Again, please contact your U.S. Representative today and urge them to oppose this gun control!
