In the mid 1990s, the Centers for Disease Control were caught using taxpayer funds to advocate for gun control. Multiple CDC Officials went on record saying that they were dedicated to banning guns across the entire country. Congress responded by passing the Dickey Amendment, which banned all taxpayer-funded gun control research.

That law has stayed on the books for over two decades. Every year, Democrats tried to repeal it and every year, Republicans stopped it from happening. This year, however, the Democrats got their wish.

When President Trump signed the spending bill into law this month, it included a leftist amendment repealing the Dickey Amendment. The CDC will officially be allowed to restart their gun control efforts.

How did this happen? How did the GOP let this provision sneak through?

They did it on purpose...

 Please, help us stop the GOP-Dem "compromise" gun registration and ban package before it is too late! Tell all Republicans and Democrats that anyone who votes for this unconstitutional gun control legislation must be removed from office!

For months, establishment Republicans have said that they needed to "do something" on guns. They are desperate to pass gun control so they can look moderate to leftist and independent voters. But they needed to find something they could pass without angering conservatives.

The CDC amendment was a test vote to see how much they could get away with. Notice how it got next to no media coverage and no pushback. The GOP now thinks they can get away with even more...

So, they are moving forward with their plan to pass two Democrat gun control bills. And they are really bad!

The first bill is called the Bipartisan Background Checks Act (H.R.8). This legislation would give the government the power to create a record every time a firearm changes hands in this country. Right now, the ATF is only notified when a gun is purchased from a licensed dealer. This bill would force you to notify the government whenever you buy or sell a gun privately.

This would give the Democrats the power to finally create a gun owner registry. The Left knows that the only way they can ever take away Americans' guns is if they first know who owns them. This registry would do just that. World history teaches us that whenever a country has created such a registry, that database was eventually used to carry out mass confiscations...

The second bill, believe it or not, may actually be the most dangerous. The Enhanced Background Checks Act (H.R.1112) would give the government the power to literally run out the clock on gun purchases. Right now, when you go to buy a gun from a store, the background check is supposed to be instant. But technically, the FBI is allowed to take up to 72 hours to process it. If after three days they haven't completed the check, then you are allowed to take the gun home with you.

This bill, however, would expand the window to 10 business days. And if you want to appeal a rejection, the government would have another 10 business days to process that. Added up, that is an entire month. Since a background check is only good for 30 calendar days before it has to be redone, H.R.1112 would give the government the power to run out the clock on millions of gun purchases a year. They could simply block law abiding Americans from completing the purchase.

This is what the Left has always wanted: the power to keep a registry of who owns guns and stop law abiding Americans from acquiring more firearms. 

And Nancy Pelosi now says she has Republican support to pass it all!

 Please, help us stop the GOP-Dem "compromise" gun registration and ban package before it is too late! Tell all Republicans and Democrats that anyone who votes for this unconstitutional gun control legislation must be removed from office!

The traitors in the GOP -- such as Rep. Peter King (R-NY) and Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) -- believe they need to pass gun control in order to save their careers. They have literally offered to sell you out to protect themselves. Others are retiring and believe they can sell out conservatives without consequence...

I really cannot stress enough how dangerous this gun control package is. It would give the Left everything they have ever wanted. The government would gain the power to keep a record of who owns what guns and run out the clock and block millions of law abiding gun owners from being able to purchase new guns.

There is no coming back from this if it passes... And the Democrats are moving this package forward!

The Left just successfully pushed through a gun control bill they have wanted for over 23 years. Now, they are going for it all.

If Pelosi is able to keep advancing the gun control package forward, it will be too late then to stop it. That is why we MUST need stop this anti-gun package right now before it picks up any more steam. And we cannot do this without your help!

Stop them!
