  • Position: Opposed
  • Author: Pres. Trump
  • Summary: Pres. Trump says he is “seriously” considering a ban on suppressors. What the President is doing to the Second Amendment is nothing short of “Death by a thousand cuts”.

HR 282 would seek to prevent the sale or possession of most semi-automatic firearms and outright bans All AK and AR “types”, require disclosing lost or stolen firearms, mandatory gun show background checks, and the restriction or outright banning of firearms parts and accessories.

  • Summary: S 184 would appropriate $250,000,000 over the course of 5 years in order for the CDC to conduct research on gun violence prevention. S 184 is creates a perfect storm for the CDC to find confirmation that guns are the problem and give a solution of gun confiscation.

Bill/Issue: HR 820 - Closes the “Gun Show Loophole”

  • Position: Opposed
  • Author: Rep. Maloney (D-NY-12)
  • Summary: HR 820 would prohibit all private firearms transfers at gun shows. By calling this a loophole, Rep. Maloney is implying that somehow law-abiding gun owners are getting “around the law.” In reality, they are following the law. And one more law isn’t going to do anything except to further trample the rights of all Americans.

Bill/Issue: HR 1266 - Considers Firearms Parts to Count as Firearms

  • Position: Opposed
  • Author: Rep. Espaillat (D-NY-13)
  • Summary: HR 1266 would treat any part that can be assembled into a firearm or can turn any device into a firearm as a firearm under the law. Labeled the “Ghost Guns are Real Guns” bill, HR 1266 is Rep. Espaillat’s feeble attempt to “do something”. What HR 1266 will really do is cause lawful gun owners more pain when it comes to transporting parts, manufacturing their own firearms, and storing firearm parts.

  • Position: Opposed
  • Author: Rep. Payne (D-NJ-10)

Bill/Issue: HR 1263 - Semi-Automatic Rifles as NFA Items

  • Position: Opposed
  • Author: Rep. Deutch (D-FL-22)
  • Summary: HR 1263 is yet another piece of the anti-gun House Democrat plan to destroy the Second Amendment. HR 1263 would classify any semi-automatic rifle capable of accepting a detachable magazine as an item to be regulated by the NFA. If this bill were to pass, buying a common AR would require a $200 tax stamp and an incredibly long waiting period. It would require the registration of these firearms with the government and essentially ban common transfers without going through the NFA process. Bottom line: This bill will eviscerate the Second Amendment.

Bill/Issue: HR 8 - Forces Background Checks on All Firearm Sales

  • Position: Opposed
  • Author: Rep. Thompson (D-CA)
  • Summary: This bill will mandate that background checks be completed for ALL firearm purchases. It would allow some limited exemptions, such as borrowing a gun for hunting, but NOT for the constitutionally protected right to self-defense.

Bill/Issue: HR 167 - Mandatory Licenced Dealer for Transfers at Gun Show

  • Position: Opposed
  • Author: Rep. Green (D-TX-9)
  • Summary: HR 167 would mandate that all firearms transactions at a gun show be processed through a licensed firearms dealer and failure to do so would result in a minimum $10,000 and/or 1-2 years in prison. This bill would also empower the government to track every firearm you buy or sell and punish otherwise responsible gun owners.

Bill/Issue: HR 1297 - Classifying AR Pistols/Others as NFA Firearms

  • Position: Opposed
  • Author: Rep. Demings (D-FL-10)
  • Summary: HR 1297, The Law Enforcement Protection Act,would add armor-piercing, concealable weapons as a category under the National Firearms Act (NFA). Presumably, Rep. Demings is targeting AR/AK pistols and other guns like the FN Five-seveN that fire “high-powered” rounds. Demings states that “If the handguns addressed by LEPA were designed to be fired from the shoulder, they would be considered a short-barreled rifle, subjecting them to NFA regulation. They fire the same rifle rounds, but because they are designed to be fired from the hand, they escape NFA regulation.”

But the reality is, Demings is not trying to address a loophole. She is just trying to ban guns that are used to protect everyday gun owners across America. This bill must be stopped!

Bill/Issue: HR 1112 - Extended Time Limits on FBI Background Checks

  • Position: Opposed
  • Author: Rep. Clyburn (D-SC-6)
  • Summary: Under current Federal guidelines, FFLs can transfer a gun immediately after receiving a “proceed” authorization through the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System. In cases where the FBI gives a “delay,” it is up to the dealer whether to go through with the transfer after three business days. HR 1112 would remove that discretion and instead impose a delay of potentially 20 business days before the transaction could go through. There is no reason that the Second Amendment should be held up at the whim of a bureaucrat in Washington D.C.

Bill/Issue: Federal "High Capacity" Magazine Ban

  • Position: Opposed
  • Summary: THIS BILL WILL HURT YOUR RIGHT TO SELF-DEFENSE. By limiting your magazine capacity to a completely arbitrary amount of 10 rounds, Rep. Deutch & Sen. Menendez are cutting you at the achilles in your ability to be prepared for any and all threats you as a law-abiding gun owner may face. The "Keep Americans Safe Act" will do is leave lawful people who only wish to protect themselves the best they can from being able to do so.

Bill/Issue: HR 659 - Establishes a Gun Buyback Program

  • Position: Opposed
  • Author: Rep. Deutch (D-FL)

  • Author: Asm. Lopez (D-19) & Asm. Vainieri-Huttle (D-37)

AB 4898 compels law enforcement to “check up” on gun owners after a firearm is unlawfully obtained by someone under the age of 18. This mandate is rife for abuse by law enforcement looking for an excuse to arrest, harass, or fine someone.
