If I was Hillary Clinton — shudder — and I realized I just got off the hook for violating the Espionage Act, avoiding serious prison time, I would disappear from the headlines. The President literally had a campaign rally chant called “lock her up.” It took a concerted effort within the Obama administration to get her off the hook. If I was her — again, shudder — I would count my lucky stars and just disappear into retirement.
But that’s not what she’s doing. She’s launching a full press to kill a piece of pro-gun legislation that, before the Las Vegas shooting, was almost certainly going to pass. Just hours after the horrible attack in Vegas, Hillary Clinton tweeted propaganda criticizing Congress for even considering pro-gun legislation. Like clockwork, RINOs started wetting themselves and demanding that the bill be pulled. We used all of the resources at our disposal and bombarded Congress with FaxBlasts on Monday demanding they hold the line.
Late Monday night, we received word that our campaign had succeeded and that Paul Ryan would allow a vote on the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement (S.H.A.R.E) Act. Cowards in the Republican Party were pressuring him to save them from having to vote on a pro-gun bill after the Las Vegas tragedy. As we’ve seen time and time again this year, GOP promises are becoming more and more conditional. However, word leaked out that Ryan had decided to let the bill get its vote.
We mentioned in our article yesterday that Paul Ryan had caved and decided to allow a vote. Except, just minutes after our article was published, Paul Ryan took to the podium and flip-flopped. While the S.H.A.R.E Act was supposed to get a vote next week, Ryan just said he had no idea when the vote would happen and that it was no longer Congress’ priority.
The GOP wants to have their cake and eat it too. But the fact that Paul Ryan is straddling the fence like this proves that this pressure is working! If the GOP establishment thought they could get away with this, they would have cancelled the vote entirely like they have on so many issues so far this year.
They fear you. Now it is up to you to keep up the pressure!
The Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act is common-sense.
It protects hunters and sportsmen as well as Americans who use firearms for self-defense. The Obama administration tried desperately to use environmental regulations to ban lead ammunition. The vast majority of bullets are made out of lead. The EPA tried desperately to make it illegal to use lead bullets on public lands, which would have made millions and millions of acres off limits to hunters.
But then, Obama also went after target shooters and those who own firearms for self-defense. His ATF tried to twist the wording of a law designed to protect cops so that they could ban the manufacture, import, and sale of popular non-lead bullets.
See the pattern? They wanted to stop people from using lead bullets to save the environment and wanted to ban non-lead bullets to protect police officers. That’s pretty much all bullets…
The S.H.A.R.E Act puts an end to that, not only rolling back the most heinous Obama gun and ammo regulations, but making sure no future President can ever go down the same path.
But it goes even further than that. The S.H.A.R.E Act also includes the Hearing Protection Act. This amendment would make it easier for law-abiding gun owners to purchase and own suppressors. Previously, people who want to own suppressors need to hand over hundreds to the ATF and then wait 6-10 months for them to run a background check. This new bill would make it so law-abiding gun owners can take the FBI’s instantaneous NICS background check and get approval to take a suppressor home that same day.
Hillary Clinton is trying desperately to try to kill this bill, spewing absolute lies in the process.
Unfortunately, the Left’s attempts are working. Paul Ryan has not scheduled a vote as he promised. He is flip-flopping and hoping he can craft his wording so you won’t notice!
Here at Conservative Daily, we believe in a pretty basic truth: a right delayed is no different than a right denied.
Every single time a pro-gun bill has reached Paul Ryan’s desk, he has refused to schedule a vote because he says the “timing isn’t right.” Ryan and, yes, Mitch McConnell are trying to run out the clock on these pro-gun bills and hope that you aren’t paying attention.
This legislation is common sense. It undoes Obama’s unconstitutional gun control regulations and protects the 2nd Amendment for generations to come. But on top of that, it unravels an 83-year-old gun control law and stops treating law-abiding Americans as criminals simply because they want to protect their hearing while participating in the shooting sports.
We are so close. The S.H.A.R.E. Act passed the House during the Obama administration, but there was no hope of it getting signed into law because the former-President absolutely despised the 2nd Amendment.
President Trump has promised to sign this if it reaches his desk but it is up to all of us to hold Congress’ feet to the fire before these spineless Republicans cave to the Democrats any more!
Do not let the GOP use this tragedy to sabotage the SHARE Act! Send your FaxBlast to Congress and force them to not only schedule a vote on the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act, but also send it to the President’s desk immediately!
No more delays,
