Rep Massie Just Issued A Dire Warning About The Gun Bill Congress Is About To Vote On … It’s A Trap

Elder Patriot – Amendment II

A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

Nothing should be more sacred to Americans than their Bill of Rights that stand as the wall between their freedoms and a tyrannical government.  That government, led by Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), is now planning to circumvent your Second Amendment rights.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) is sounding the alarm about pending gun control legislation by amending the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act.  The amendment would “require each federal agency and department, including a federal court, to certify whether it has provided to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) disqualifying records of persons prohibited from receiving or possessing a firearm.” 

Rep. Massie posted this video to social media to explain just how nefarious the coordination between Cornyn and Democrats Dianne Feinstein and Chuck Schumer actually is:

In December 2017, Massie revealed a bait and switch using the concealed carry legislation, which was written to amend the federal criminal code to allow a qualified individual to carry a concealed handgun into or possess a concealed handgun in another state that allows individuals to carry concealed firearms.”

So far so good, right?

Except for the fact that Feinstein/Schumer sponsored gun legislation that amends the “Brady bill” was added to Concealed Carry Reciprocity bill (HR 38) in the House and a vote is scheduled for this week.

The Feinstein/Schumer “fix-NICS” legislation allocates $625 million over five years to expand the national background check database by pressuring every branch of the administration (such as the Veteran’s Administration) to submit thousands of more names to the NICS background check database to deny gun purchases, that was originally advanced by B. Hussein Obama. 

While we can argue the Constitutionality and wisdom of background checks we must be conscious of the fact that this bill will put your Second Amendment rights in the hands of a bureaucrat – actually dozens of bureaucrats – without so much as hearing in a court of competent jurisdiction.

Rep. Massie reminds us that:

When President Obama couldn’t get Congress to pass gun control, he implemented a strategy of compelling, through administrative rules, the Veterans Administration and the Social Security Administration to submit lists of veterans and seniors, many of whom never had a day in court, to be included in the NICS database of people prohibited from owning a firearm. Only a state court, a federal (article III) court, or a military court, should ever be able to suspend your rights for any significant period of time.

This bill greatly expands the number of government agencies empowered to end your right to bear arms on the say-so of a single bureaucrat with their own agenda. 

We are being bombarded everyday with accounts of how bureaucrats inside the I.R.S. and the EPA carried out agenda driven political hit jobs on individuals and businesses.

The news is flooded with accounts of illegal government spying and FISA abuse.

Never have our gun rights been more important.

Call your legislators and tell them that any attempt to pass H.R. 38, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act must be a vote on its merits alone and separate from a vote on H.R. 4477, the “fix-NICS” gun-grab bill.

You can find your legislator’s phone numbers here.

If you choose to send them a message here is an outline of what you can write.  Feel free to copy and paste it if you like.

We can argue the Constitutionality and wisdom of background checks but we must be conscious of the fact that H.R. 4477, fix-NICS, will put my Second Amendment rights in the hands of a bureaucrat – actually dozens of bureaucrats – without granting me so much as hearing in a court of competent jurisdiction.

When President Obama couldn’t get Congress to pass gun control, he implemented a strategy of compelling, through administrative rules, the Veterans Administration and the Social Security Administration to submit lists of veterans and seniors, many of whom never had a day in court, to be included in the NICS database of people prohibited from owning a firearm.

H.R. 4477, “fix-NICS” greatly expands the number of government agencies empowered to end my right to bear arms on the say-so of a single bureaucrat with their own agenda. 

Please don’t support H.R. 4477, the “fix-NICS” either on its own or if it is bundled with H.R. 38 to sugarcoat it.
