Today in the US House Judiciary Committee there will be a hearing on gun-control legislation that spells long-term bad news for gun owners.
Please read this short email, and when you are done call and email Ohio’s two Congress members who sit on the US House Judiciary Committee!
It is no secret that background checks don’t stop madmen bent on committing murder, and here’s a list of shootings where the killer used guns bought with legal background checks:
– Las Vegas concert shooting
– DC Congressional Baseball game shooting
– Newtown, Connecticu shooting (Sandy Hook)
– Aurora movie theater shooting
– Charleston church shooting
– Chattanooga recruiting station shooting
– San Bernardino shooting
– Gabby Giffords shooting
– Fort Hood shooting
Sadly, I could go on on and on.
And murderers who can’t or don’t want to use guns can go right to Home Depot and rent a truck, as we just witnessed in NYC a couple of weeks ago.
But not only does the background check system fail its stated goal, it is also a dangerous weapon in the hands of an anti-gun administration!
In fact, Gun Owners of America has tracked over 250,000 veterans who have had their gun rights taken away by the NICS database with no due process!
Worse, in 2014 the Hartford, Connecticut Courant called on the Connecticut state police to use the NICS database to find out which gun owners had refused to register their “assault weapons” after they passed a forced registration law in 2013!
Demanding that the state police use the NICS database, they want the state police to round up all gun owners who refused to be treated like sex offenders and either force them to register their guns or be prosecuted for their class D felony crimes of failing to do so!
I don’t know about you, but I find that outrageous.
That’s why today’s hearing on expanding the NICS database is so dangerous!
So please take a moment to contact Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan and Steve Chabot.
They are Ohio’s two Judiciary Committee members that will be hearing this legislation today, but they need to hear from YOU first.
As you’ll see, you can either call them by phone or send them a pre-written email. Whatever you do, please do it right away!
