Pelosi & Schumer Pushing Gun Control This Week
Written by Erich Pratt Published: 08 March 2021
I want to thank you and GOA’s entire grassroots team. All of you have been amazing.
Since last week, GOA activists have sent more than 1.5 million emails to congressional Republicans — urging them NOT to compromise on H.R. 8 and H.R. 1446.
But our job is not yet done.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D) and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D) have scheduled votes this week in BOTH chambers.
So now is not the time to go silent!
Here’s what is at stake:
- H.R. 8. This bill would criminalize every transfer of a firearm unless it first goes through a government screening process — aka, gun owner registration — or unless the transfer fulfills one of the very few exemptions in the legislation. NOTE: Because “transfer” is not defined, even handing a gun to a neighbor could be severely punished.
- H.R. 1446. This bill would subject law-abiding gun owners to indefinite delays for those who are seeking FBI permission to purchase a firearm.
- Anti-gun Attorney General. In the Senate, virulent anti-gunner Merrick Garland will receive a confirmation vote on his nomination for Attorney General. Garland has supported a ban on semi-automatic firearms and says he has “no opinion” on whether the FBI can indefinitely delay firearms purchases!
Even if you sent a letter before — on any of the above issues — go ahead and do so again. We have new letters for you to send!
And please consider donating to GOA’s 2A Protection Fund so that we can mobilize even more gun owners.
Thank you for your support and activism!
