After three weeks of constant calls and emails from AFA members and supporters demanding action on the Second Amendment, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is feeling the heat.
In the last ten days, House Republicans have scheduled hearings for April 26 (ATF Director Dettelbach) and March 23 (ATF ‘Assault On The 2A’).
There are no coincidences in politics — your heat has forced action.
Just yesterday a resolution was introduced by 183 Republicans (H.J. Res. 44) that would repeal the Biden Administration’s pistol brace rule.
By seeking to invoke the “Congressional Review Act” (CRA), the resolution would “nullify the Biden administration rule if passed by the House and Senate and signed by President Biden, or if Congress were to override a likely Biden veto.”
After ignoring grassroots gun owners for over two months now, your heat is forcing action in the Congress . . .
That’s the good news. The bad news is this type of resolution only has SIXTY to pass.
That means we have serious work to do at the grassroots level to gin up enough heat on the McCarthy and the Republicans to get this done.
As we’ve told you time and time again, without grassroots heat on Congress or state legislatures, the politicians usually do nothing to defend our Second Amendment rights.
While the battle is just getting started, the pressure campaign you’ve waged on McCarthy in recent weeks is beginning to show fruit.
But we can’t let up now . . .
TAKE ACTION — KEEP UP THE HEAT!
