Middle of the night Legislation: Here Are the Republicans Who Voted for Gun Control Legislation Behind Your Back..

by Jeff Charles


There is a reason why I constantly argue that the primary elections might be even more important than the upcoming midterms. The Senate, including Republicans, passed legislation on Saturday night that would make things harder for gun owners and those attempting to obtain firearms.

Ammoland News reported:

In the middle of the night, the U.S. Senate passed the Violence Against Women Act Reauthorization Act of 2022 (VAWA). Some gun rights groups raised alarm bells when this act passed the U.S. House of Representatives last year with Republican support. At the time, Republicans like Dan Crenshaw said that the anti-gun provisions of the bill would be removed and accused Gun Owners of America (GOA) of fearmongering to fundraise.

Democrats and Republicans led by Senator Jodi Ernst negotiated the bill’s anti-gun provisions.

Many of the GOP senators who vowed not to vote for the bill if it still included anti-gun provisions ended up supporting it. Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MI) voted in favor of the measure, which is notable because she released a statement to Ammoland News vowing never to vote for such a proposal. Her office wrote:

Senator Hyde-Smith’s position on the Second Amendment has not changed.  The underlying measure placed before the Senate was one to keep the government operating and help the people of Ukraine fight an unhinged foreign dictator. Senator Hyde-Smith does not support the mentioned VAWA provisions and will continue to fight to protect Second Amendment rights.

Here is a full list of the Republican senators who voted for the bill:

    Barrasso (R-WY)

Blunt (R-MO)

Capito (R-WV)

Collins (R-ME)

Cornyn (R-TX)

Ernst (R-IA)

Graham (R-SC)

Grassley (R-IA)

Hyde-Smith (R-MS)

McConnell (R-KY)

Moran (R-KS)

Murkowski (R-AK)

Portman (R-OH)

Shelby (R-AL)

Thune (R-SD)

Tuberville (R-AL)

Wicker (R-MS)

Young (R-IN)

If any of these lawmakers belong to you, it might be time to get on the phone or keyboard and let them know what you think. It may also be motivation to make sure you show up during the primary elections and help to send actual conservatives to Washington, D.C.

When you understand what is included in these provisions, you will understand why it is so important to call these people out. For starters, it includes the NICS Denial Notification Act. This would require federal authorities to refer those whose background checks are denied to state and local law enforcement when they attempt to purchase a firearm or obtain a license to carry. This would likely result in these agencies investigating the person who was denied regardless of evidence of wrongdoing. Given that most NICS denials are false, it is not difficult to see how this could be a problem. [This ISN't about curbing violence on women; It's an attack on gun ownership. You WILL be prosecuted for the 'thought crime' - of desiring a gun - ED]

Another part of the bill would allow the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to deputize members of local law enforcement to do its dirty work. “This provision is a direct attack against states with Second Amendment Protection Acts (SAPA),” according to Ammoland News. These bills prohibit state and local law enforcement agencies from enforcing federal gun laws. With this provision, the ATF can essentially make local police officers into federal authorities, meaning they can get around SAPA laws.

Another provision would fund research on gun violence, which sounds nice, but is far more insidious than it appears. Ammoland News explains:

Research into gun violence has always been flawed in the past. Instead of using evidence-based science to come to a conclusion, the government has been caught using a predetermined result. The federal agency would decide on a conclusion they wanted first and work backward by using evidence to back up their opinion while ignoring evidence contradicting their stance. The practice was highlighted by whistleblower Dr. Miguel Faria whose testimony in front of Congress ended funding for gun violence research by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

The fact that Republican senators would vote for such a proposal demonstrates one of two things: They don’t care what you think, or they didn’t think you would find out. This is a prime example showing how many so-called conservatives in Congress are willing to abandon their supposed principles for the sake of political expediency. Unfortunately, they will never stop until they are made to pay for their duplicity during primary season.

There may have been a time when gun owners thought that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) served a legitimate role in the federal government, helping to arrest violent criminals and dangerous gang members.

But those days are long gone!

These days, we all know that the ATF is nothing more than the personal attack dog for Democratic Presidents like Barack Obama and now Joe Biden, spending their days attacking the Second Amendment and harassing law-abiding gun owners.

 The ATF can’t be reformed, and they can’t be fixed. They need to be shut down and forever disbanded.

That’s why the American Firearms Association -– our national affiliate -- is proud to announce that Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has just introduced our legislation to ELIMINATE THE ATF!

Everyone remembers how Obama and Eric Holder allowed the ATF to give THOUSANDS of fully automatic firearms to the Mexican Drug Cartels through their infamous Operation Fast and Furious -- a terrible idea that led to the deaths of hundreds of people!

One of those deaths was Brian Terry, a former Marine and decorated U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agent, who was murdered with a gun that was put into the hands of violent criminals by the ATF!

But as dangerous as the ATF is to the Second Amendment and gun owners right now, things will get FAR WORSE if David Chipman is confirmed as the next Director of the ATF.

Chipman, who is receiving a vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee today, wants to use the ATF to ATTACK gun owners and go door-to-door trying to confiscate our AR-15’s!

When passed into law, H.R. 3960 will:

>>> Require the ATF to publish a list of every firearm they have confiscated and sell them to the American people through a public auction!

>>> Disperse the money from the sale of these firearms to the families of border patrol agents killed in the line of duty as a result of Operation Fast and Furious!

>>> Immediately repeal all ATF regulations and permanently rescind their hiring authority, shifting their regulatory functions back to the FBI!

 >>> PERMANENTLY ABOLISH THE ATF 6 MONTHS AFTER ENACTMENT!

Eliminating the ATF is the ONLY WAY to fix them. They hate the Second Amendment, they despise law-abiding gun owners, they clearly think they are above the law, and their actions have resulted in the death of HUNDREDS of people via Fast and Furious. ED Note: Also let's not forget the murder of David Koresh and over 80 men, women and children at WACO.

Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has filed the bill for the American Firearms Association and the Missouri Firearms Coalition. Now it’s time that Missouri’s Congressional members stand with her and cosponsor this vital legislation!  

Send your Congressman this PRE-WRITTEN EMAIL today, insisting that he support this bill and send a message that the ATF’s time is OVER!

Our freedom is under attack in a way that American’s haven’t experienced in hundreds of years. The tyrants of our Founding Father’s era were called ‘Red Coats,’ and they worked for a king thousands of miles away.

These days, they are called ‘ATF Agents’ and they work for a tyrant in our own government, sitting in our own White House!

Groups like the American Firearms Association and the Missouri Firearms Coalition are leading the charge to confront this evil with legislation like this.

And I hope that you will join us in this fight.

After you’ve contacted your Congressman, please send us the most generous donation that you can to keep us fighting for you!

The enemies of freedom have a limitless budget, given to them from Michael Bloomberg, George Soros, and many others. To be blunt, we need your immediate help to push for this legislation.

Our children and grandchildren are either going to inherit an America where ‘We the People’ are in charge of our government, or an America where the government rules over us by force and fear.

If we lose our precious Second Amendment freedoms -- our very right to defend ourselves -- then we’re just a step away from outright tyranny!

 Help us fight back with a major donation below!

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is our country! Fight for it! Now is the time!

For Missouri,

Aaron Dorr
Political Director
Missouri Firearms Coalition

P.S. Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has just introduced the Missouri Firearms Coalitions’ Eliminate the ATF Act, which would close the doors of the ATF forever!

It’s time that Missouri’s congressional delegation take a stand for freedom, too. So send your Congressman this PRE-WRITTEN EMAIL today, insisting that he add his name as a cosponsor to this legislation.

Then donate! The Missouri Firearms Coalition is LEADING this fight, but we can’t do it without your help. Everything we love about America is on the line!

Stand with us NOW!
