We all need to take a moment and write our House representaives in Congress and tell them to oppose H.R. 5717 This is a BS bill being brought to the floor by Hank Johnson D GA (the same moron that thought the island of Guam my capsize if too many people got on it) and it mandates a federal firearm license in order to be able to buy/sell/own firearms and ammo. It also bans all so called assault rifles and silencers. It mandates that all gun owners must have an "approved" safe to store firearms in, increases the govt's authority to siezw guns under so called "red flag laws," and a host of other nefarious demands. The text of the entire bill can be seen here:

https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/5717/text

I have already written my Rep, Mac Thornberry, and also wrote Ken Buck in CO since I own property in his district and have an address there as well. Note this is a house bill and the senate has nothing to do with it unless it clears the house so writing Cruz and Cornyn is a waste of time right now.

The problem is too many of our hunting brothers are in denial of the problem. I still here to often form many of them that it will never happen.

That ain't the point! What an incredibly narrow-minded thing to say. If you are willing to just sit back and allow it to clear the house and go to the senate without trying to stop it then YOU are part of the problem the nation is facing.

You'd think he would want to invest in a giant outrigger for the poor island of Guam first.

They must of forgotten who this schmuck is Hud, over 200 proposed bills and 7 passed, naming post offices.

No politician will sign on for that in an election year, it would be suicide to their career

I was simply stating a fact! Not sure what makes you the expert to determine that I am narrow minded but my representative is a Republican and I don't see a need to write him!

My congressman is a republican also. But I will take the few seconds it takes to email him and tell him my opinion and how I expect him to vote. And I expect a reply!
Sidebuster, I don't agree with your not writing your congressman, but I also defend your right to not write him! But as for myself, I want it in writing as to how my State reps/senators stand as well as my Federal reps/senators stand on any subject I question them about. Just my 2cents

If anyone feels a need to email their Congressman, by all means do it. I'm just saying in this case any Republican from Texas that voted for a bill that Rep Johnson brought to the floor pertaining to guns would be committing political suicide and they know that.

Mo Brooks has already said no need to call or email. He is 100% against it.

This ^^^^ There are 22 House Republicans not seeking re-election. This carries a lot of possibilities. The more on-the-record "NO" constituents the better.

Edited to add: And three Senate Republicans are not seeking re-election.

Calling your Representative is a great idea but joining the NRA is a must if you enjoy shooting/hunting. I know they have had problems and I may not agree with them 100% of the time but still the greatest voice we have for the Second Amendment.
Adios,
Gary

Better yet, join the GOA, I am a life member of both, but the GOA has their **** together, they even supply you with postcards already addressed to your representatives, all you have to do is sign, stamp and mail to help us fight crap like this.

Wow thank you for that the heads up. I didn't even know Gun Owners of America existed. And I am a lifetime NRA member. I just joined GOA. Thanks for that!

There is also Firearms Policy Coalition and Second Amendment Foundation. Both groups, along with GOA have been really quick to file lawsuits against state and local municipalities during this COVID-19 shutdown where local gun stores have been told to close.

I joined NRA but likely will not renew unless they get rid of Wayne LaPierre. They just laid off a bunch of staff and the rest are taking a pay cut while good old Wayne got a big pay raise in 2019 above the big bucks he was already getting paid. Also got over 400K in bonuses last year according to regulatory filings. How many rank and file jobs could have been spared with a portion of his salary if he had been willing to give it up.

I want NRA to be a powerful voice and keep our rights in place, but the constant begging for money while mismanaging finances just rubs me the wrong way.
