BREAKING: Gun Banners Pull Last-Minute Stunt, Pass “Assault Weapons” Ban



Now you see it, now you don’t!

So the gun banners pulled a fast one on us Friday!

Last Thursday, our friends over at Freedom’s Lodge reported the news that House Democrats had decided to kick the “assault weapons” ban bill–aka H.R. 1808–down the road for a vote after the summer break. Turns out that the gun banners were waiting for the end of the news cycle to quickly pass the legislation Friday evening. This is a well-known tactic among legislators and their lickspittles in the press: Dump the news that you don’t want people to see on Friday nights. The fact that House Democrats don’t even want their own loyal voters to know about this is just one more piece of proof that the anti-gunners are not doing this for their electorate. (For whom are they doing it? It’s a mystery!)

We’re livid. So are the gun-rights organizations. The reactions range from outrage to pure foul-mouthed fury. For example, here’s the NRA:

NRA-ILA Executive Director Jason Ouimet released the following statement on Friday regarding the passage of H.R. 1808:

“Barely a month after the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in NYSRPA v. Bruen, gun control advocates in Congress are spearheading an assault upon the freedoms and civil liberties of law-abiding Americans. The promises made in HR 1808 are nothing short of a lie based on willful ignorance of the disastrous 1994 Clinton Gun Ban which failed to produce any significant drop in crime. With more than 24 million potentially-banned firearms in common use, these draconian restrictions fall in blatant opposition to the Supreme Court’s rulings in BruenCaetano v. Massachusetts, and DC v. Heller. Their refusal to recognize this reality places everyone at risk. Any legitimate attempt to address our nation’s surge in violent crime cannot commence until anti-gun legislators step away from the radicals who defund our police departments, support prosecutors who refuse to prosecute dangerous criminals, and promote no cash bail policies that have turned once proud communities into a playground of lawlessness and fear.”

The FPC is putting it a little more bluntly.

Firearms Policy Coalition issued the following statement in response to the House vote on H.R.1808, the “Assault Weapons Ban of 2022”:

Today, the House of Representatives passed H.R.1808, which would, if enacted, criminalize the lawful and constitutionally protected conduct of millions of Americans.

In a time of economic recession, gross overreach and abuse of power by the federal government, and cascading governmental policy failures at all levels, 217 depraved representatives, including the deciding votes cast by Republicans Jacobs (NY) and Fitzpatrick, voted to violate natural rights and our Constitution, choosing to promote policies that would imprison peaceable people who have done no wrong.

There is no world in which American gun owners bend the knee and comply with this evil legislation. Further, if H.R.1808 is enacted, FPC Law will swiftly and aggressively take all actions necessary to fight and enjoin the bill.

And to all of those who supported and passed this immoral legislation, we say simply this: “Fuck you. No.”
