(Washington, DC) — The following nine Republicans should be ashamed of themselves for locking arms with anti-gunner Dianne Feinstein and MoveOn . org, in supporting Feinstein’s NICS Government Database bill (HR 4477 / S 2135).
Gun Owners of America said the bill would:
“add hundreds of thousands of additional names into the NICS system, thus blocking thousands of lawful gun owners from purchasing guns for offenses as slight as unpaid traffic tickets.”
Here’s the list of the nine Republican turncoats:
Bob Goodlatte (VA-6)
Steve Chabot (OH-1)
Ted Poe (TX-2)
Tom Marino (PA-10)
John Ratcliffe (TX-4)
Martha Roby (AL-2)
Mike Johnson (LA-4)
Karen Handel (GA-6)
John Rutherford (FL-4)
Here’s a shot of the actual Republican vote count from the Committee Hearing.
The Republicans only had enough votes for passage by getting eight Democrat votes.
Otherwise the bill would have failed in committee
So you know exactly how dangerous this bill is, here’s the entire HR 4477 statement from Gun Owners of America:
“Finally, Gun Owners of America condemns the committee’s approval of the ‘Traffic Ticket Gun Ban’ (H.R. 4477).
This deceptive legislation would add hundreds of thousands of additional names into the NICS system, thus blocking thousands of lawful gun owners from purchasing guns for offenses as slight as unpaid traffic tickets.
Not only that, it would lay the groundwork for an anti-gun administration to troll every government health and welfare program for the purpose of imposing gun bans on recipients with PTSD, ADHD, and Alzheimer’s — the latter would jeopardize the inheritance of many valuable gun collections.
The Obama administration already tried to do this with Social Security disability.
In the future, there may not be a pro-gun Congress to disapprove similar moves or a pro-gun president to sign it.”
