HR 5717, GUN OWNERS WATCH THIS AND SHARE!

It is absolutely ridiculous that this is being brought up by some members of the government during this crisis.  Contact your representatives.

It was introduced in January and hasn't gone anywhere.  It was introduced, kicked back to Committee, re-introduced and kicked back to committee on 3/10.  At least as of now, it appears to be one of the multitude of bills people introduce to waste time and have something to say they did.  I don't see any co-sponsors, so keep an eye but don't expect much to happen.

I don't think they expect bills like this to go through when they bring them up, but then they'll write another one with say "magazine capacity", and maybe it goes through because it wasn't  "as bad" as the last bill.  Then the next is banning semi autos and it will pass because it wasn't as bad as the last one.  This video is more to show how their agenda works and to get people to not fall for the fear driven political agendas.

For sure, there are people that have that as an agenda.

We need to be vigilant and call them out every time they bring these unconstitutional bills up. They do it every year at both the state and federal levels. They are playing the long game and we need to also. If you are not a member of one of the gun rights organizations, please join one. The numbers matter to politicians.
