Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives issued a strong statement in support of the Second Amendment by passing H.J. Res. 40, which would repeal Barack Obama's scandalous attempt to grab guns from thousands of law-abiding Social Security Administration (SSA) beneficiaries.
Since then, anti-gunners and their media collaborators have been issuing false, contradictory, and downright dishonest attempts to derail this critical measure to protect the Second Amendment rights of tens of thousands of innocent, law-abiding, non-violent Americans.
Make no mistake, the SSA rule:
The Social Security Administration in fact didn't even try to defend the rule on public safety grounds. In responding to commenters who submitted evidence the rule was not supported by science or evidence, Social Security wrote:
Indeed, the SSA's rule has been opposed by dozens of legal, medical, and advocacy groups from across the political spectrum (see, for example, the list included in this article by Charles C.W. Cooke at National Review).
A vote on the repeal is expected as early as next week in the Senate.
That's why gun control advocates are ratcheting up their attacks in the press.
And that's why it's imperative that your U.S. Senators hear from you so that they do their part to send the repeal of the SSA's anti-gun rule to President Trump's desk.
You can use the Contact Your Legislators feature on the NRA-ILA's website or call the Congressional Switchboard at (202) 224-3121.
The first pro-gun legislative act of the Trump era Congress is on the verge of success, but it needs your help to get over the line.
Don't delay. Please contact your U.S. Senators TODAY and urge them to vote YES on House Joint Resolution 40, a measure to roll back one of the worst of Barack Obama's executive gun control actions.
