Lindsey Graham has announced that the Senate Judiciary Committee WILL hold a full hearing and vote on a radical new gun confiscation bill.
Graham and the GOP have been meeting with Democrats to see if they can come up with a "compromise" gun control bill.
You see, Democrats have plenty of ideas. They want to outlaw private sales and transfers of weapons, creating a nationwide federal registry of gun owners in the process (H.R. 8). They want to give the FBI the power to arbitrarily block gun sale background checks for weeks on end (H.R. 1112). Dianne Feinstein still wants to implement the largest gun ban ever, banning any semi-automatic rifle or shotgun that has a grip you can hold in your hand (S. 66).
And as if that wasn't bad enough, the Left is now pushing for mandatory background checks on all ammunition sales. Even if you went in to buy a single box of ammunition, you would have to pay for a background check that costs two-times the ammunition itself. This new tax on gun ownership was just introduced this week (Jamie's Law).
Republicans should be fighting against these unconstitutional gun control proposals. Instead, they are vowing to find 'common ground' and meet the left halfway.
Their "compromise" is Senate Bill 7, the Extreme Risk Protection Act and Violence Prevention Act.
Instead of fighting for your rights, the GOP is going to rubber stamp this radical gun confiscation bill!
Americans have a right to be considered innocent until proven guilty. The presumption of innocence is the foundation of our justice system. If the government believes that you have committed a crime, they need to prove that beyond a reasonable doubt and convince a jury of your peers.
The same applies to civilian disarmament. If the Federal government believes you are too dangerous or deranged to own firearms, they have to prove it. Either by proving someone is a criminal or seeking a mental defection adjudication.
That is because Americans have a right to keep and bear arms. It is deliberately hard for the government to suspend rights.
But Senate Bill 7 would abolish those principles for gun owners, crafting a special exemption for state and local governments to disarm gun owners without having to jump through the same hoops.
As long as a friend, family member, or neighbor claims that a gun owner is dangerous, police would be able to petition a judge to have his or her guns confiscated. No evidence... no actual proof of a crime... the government wouldn't even need to accuse the gun owner of breaking the law. Basic hearsay would be enough to get a confiscation order.
Once a disarmament order was approved, police would raid the gun owner's home early in the morning and confiscate all of their guns and ammunition. It would then be up to the gun owner to prove they deserve their rights back.
Instead of being innocent until proven guilty, the gun owner is presumed guilty until they convince a judge they're innocent. And if they can't do that, then the confiscation order remains in effect for at least one year.
Liberal states around the country are trying to impose these radical gun confiscation bills. The Republicans want to accelerate this and impose a "red flag" law on the entire country!
Lindsey Graham has already scheduled the hearing. In a little more than a week, Republicans plan to team up with Democrats to pass the most radical gun confiscation package ever envisioned.
We saw this week just how many Republicans are itching to vote with the Democrats. 12 Senate Republicans and 13 GOPers in the House voted to block Pres. Trump's border wall project. There are at least twice as many Republicans eager pass this gun confiscation bill into law.
And President Trump... has promised to sign it if it reaches his desk.
Only YOU can put the fear back into the GOP and force them to stand down, but you must take action now before it's too late!
We warned that this was going to happen. This confiscation bill isn't a Democrat creation... it is sponsored by Republicans.
Democrats want a total gun ban and nationwide registration and the GOP wants to "compromise" for passing a new firearm confiscation bill.
Now, they're using a mass shooting in New Zealand -- 7,000 miles away from the United States -- to justify rushing this bill through.
You CANNOT let this happen!
