YOUR HELP IS URGENTLY NEEDED TO PROTECT OUR FREEDOMS!
Thomas Massie and Justin Amash are working to defeat this massive DHS over reach which will give DHS even more power to take our freedoms under the guise of fighting terrorism.
House Republicans are pushing FOR this bill (wth?) with Paul Ryan leading the charge.
This resolution comes up for a vote tomorrow, Wednesday. Please call your Congressman RIGHT AWAY and urge them to vote NO on this resolution.
Tell them “No more encroachment on our freedoms!”
STATEMENT FROM CONGRESSMAN JUSTIN AMASH (MI)
House Republicans are pushing a horrendous bill this week. The gun section alone infringes the First, Second, Fifth, and Sixth Amendments. We’re expecting a vote on #HR5611 in the House on Wednesday. More information here over the next couple days. You also can follow me on Twitter (@justinamash) for additional updates. #StopHR5611
STATEMENT FROM CONGRESSMAN THOMAS MASSIE (KY)
“We interrupt your Independence Day for this important message from my friend Justin Amash.” Republican leaders in the House are bringing a gun control bill to the floor this week, and unlike the votes in the Senate that frankly were designed to fail, Republican leaders WANT this bill to pass. I agree with Justin that this House bill violates several elements of the Bill of Rights, so I will be voting No. A law to prevent you from purchasing a gun if you are guilty of any aspect of terrorism would make sense. In fact that hypothetical law should require you also to go to jail. Instead we’re voting on a law that gives the executive and judicial branches broad authority to try and predict if you might one day become guilty, and if you fall into this category, your right to keep and bear arms will be denied. #StopHR5611 #minorityreport
Most of this bill consists of bureaucratic fluff that would be completely ineffective when applied to the stated goal of deterring terrorism. The infringements are mostly in Section 5, which is worded to appear to provide protections to non-terrorist citizens, but in practice, those nebulously worded assurances would evaporate as soon as our feral government put this plan into action.
Calling my congressional representative now.
