Federal legislation

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) is the new chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee. Our report indicates that Waters and her party are going to pressure financial institutions to severely curtail and even terminate their relationships with firearm manufacturers, licensed gun retailers, and law-abiding citizens exercising their right to purchase and own firearms. (Don’t check the box on your tax return to donate to the election fund — give directly to the party, the candidate or the PAC of your choice.)

So far we have two federal “universal” background check (i.e., no private transfers) bills, H.R.8 and S.42, introduced. Take action here.


SCOTUS agrees to take a gun case

Analysis


Gun-grabbing AG nomination

President Trump has nominated anti-gun William Barr to replace Jeff Sessions as US Attorney General. Barr served as US Attorney General once before under President George H.W. Bush from 1991-1993, and during his hearings for that nomination Barr supported both the Brady Bill waiting period and the DeConcini [semi-auto ban] amendment, as well as a limitation on magazine capacity. In hearings this week, Barr said he also favored Extreme Risk Protection Orders or “Red Flag” laws to disarm most anyone who has a “complaint” lodged against them, perhaps without evidence or due process, depending on the particulars of any given proposal. But remember that only a small minority of mental conditions make a person irresponsible or unsafe with a gun, and that a large segment of the left views the mere desire to own a gun as a symptom of mental illness. Barr also may have perjured himself by denying he ever supported a semi-auto ban. When asked how his views from the early 1990s had changed after the Heller decision, Barr said: “I think I opposed an assault weapons ban [in the early 1990s].” We can do better than Barr.
