On Thursday, the Democrat-led House Judiciary Committee advanced a huge gun-control bill in response to recent, deadly mass shootings in Tulsa, Buffalo and Uvalde, Texas. Republicans and Second Amendment supporters see the legislation as "a partisan power grab." Washington Examiner reports:
The Protect Our Kids Act was passed along party lines, with 25 Democrats voting in favor and all 19 Republicans opposed. The legislation is expected to reach the House floor next week. ... The legislation seeks to raise the legal age for purchasing semi-automatic centerfire rifles from 18 to 21 years old, create additional federal offenses for gun trafficking, and strengthen current gun laws by closing loopholes, which would be done by amending the definition of "manufactured firearms" to include using 3D printers to create guns, among other reforms.
On Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pledged to bring legislation to the floor next week that would ban so-called "assault weapons." With the Protect Our Kids Act now out of committee, she'll get her wish. It's an election year, and Democrats want to pass sweeping gun-control legislation before losing dozens of seats in Congress.
A "red wave" is coming, so the radical, unhinged Left is politicizing tragedies in hopes of "fundamentally transforming the United States of America" -- Barack Obama's stated goal. Count on House and Senate Democrats to push unconstitutional, un-American legislation until the 118th Congress, likely led by the GOP, convenes in January 2023.
+ + Tell Republicans To "Protect The Second Amendment!"
In 1985, then-Senator Joe Biden said, "I am convinced that a criminal who wants a firearm can get one through illegal, non-traceable, unregistered sources, with or without gun control." So, if criminals are still able to acquire guns, what's the point of the increased calls for more gun control?
On Thursday night, Tucker Carlson shared his theory. He said Mr. Biden "has decided to leverage the murder of 19 children in Texas last week for a political advantage. ... The point of this, of course, is to disarm people who did not vote for Joe Biden."
Take immediate action to ensure your constitutional right to "keep and bear Arms" is NOT violated, repealed or infringed. If you oppose Joe Biden's and radical Democrat efforts to disarm the American people, make your voice heard on Capitol Hill.

Gun-rights supporters fear that with Democrats controlling the House of Representatives, the Senate and the White House, lawmakers will "overreach" in the wake of recent politicized tragedies. Either through additional executive orders or new legislation, the Biden regime -- with help from House and Senate RINOs -- could infringe on the constitutional, rights of law-abiding gun owners.
As American cities become battle zones of rising crime and gang violence -- and as the U.S. southern border disintegrates -- the Biden regime, radical Democrats and Senate RINOs should NOT make it harder for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves.
When criminals use guns to hurt and kill people, it's tragic and unacceptable. Most Americans would agree that no terrorist, criminal or mentally ill person should be allowed access to firearms. But if you think gun-control laws should NOT prevent mentally competent, law-abiding citizens from exercising their God-given constitutional right "to keep and bear Arms," you can make your voice heard. Click here to sign now.
The Second Amendment clearly states: "...the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed." The U.S. Constitution is very specific when it comes to gun control. Americans have used firearms to defend their lives and property for nearly 250 years.
Take immediate action by clicking here to add your name to the "Protect The Second Amendment!" national petition now. With gun-control legislation pending, Grassfire plans to deliver petitions to key congressional leaders NEXT WEEK. Demand lawmakers protect your constitutional right "to keep and bear Arms"! Thanks, in advance, for making your voice heard today.
For life, liberty and limited government,

- "We have a Natural Right of self-defense to guard against tyranny in the Second Amendment. This is something that makes us American. And Joe Biden showed that he does not respect the Constitution. He does not support this Natural Right. That really is an impeachable offense to talk this way against something so foundational to the country.”
