NRA: Senate could soon hold a hearing on “Biden’s extreme gun control” plan

The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed several pieces of legislation aimed at gun control. Now, it appears as though the Senate is going to follow suit.

Breitbart reports that the Senate could take up gun control as soon as next week – the week of March 22nd. 

The latest

Breitbart’s report was based on a recent tweet from the National Rifle Association (NRA).

The NRA on Monday wrote that “Biden’s extreme gun control will likely get a hearing NEXT WEEK.” The NRA said that this was information that it has received from “U.S. Senate insiders.” The NRA has released similar tweets in the past, warning about upcoming congressional hearings, and they have been right.

“Anti-gun bills just passed the House. If they pass the Senate, the gun control will go to Biden to become law,” the NRA wrote in its tweet.

The organization concluded by urging people to contact their senators.

Background

Recently, President Joe Biden called upon Congress to pass several pieces of legislation aimed at gun control. The measures that Biden said that he wants to see Congress pass ranged from universal background checks to eliminating immunity for gun manufacturers.

Congressional Democrats have heeded Biden’s call. Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives passed House Resolution 8, which was sponsored by Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA). What H.R. 8 does is require background checks for just about all gun sales, including private ones. The measure passed the House by a vote of 227 to 203 with eight Republicans voting in favor of it.

In addition to H.R. 8, the House also passed H.R. 1446, which was sponsored by Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC). What H.R. 1446 does is extend the length of time that the government has to complete a background check for a gun license from three business days to ten business days. There is even a provision in the bill that allows that period to go to twenty days if those conducting the background check are not confident enough to hand out a gun license after ten days.

Looking ahead

The NRA did not specify the gun control measure or measures on which the Senate is planning to hold a hearing.

On top of the two measures that passed the House last week, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) has also introduced a piece of legislation that she is calling the “Assault Weapons Ban of 2021.” It would ban 205 different “assault weapons,” and it would also ban ammunition magazines that have the capability to hold more than ten rounds.

The saving grace for Second Amendment supporters, here, is the Senate filibuster. With the Senate split 50 to 50, it appears unlikely that the Democrats will get enough Senate Republicans on board to reach the 60-vote threshold needed to get the legislation through the Senate.

  3. Guns hav no conscious. There are already gun laws on the books. They need to be enforced. This is just another way for the democrats to justify the forth coming tax hike/raise of taxes, Just like the covid bill.

    1. There is already a background check in place when you buy guns you democraps so why do you need to control it more and not let store stock ammo I cant even go hunting because the shelves are empty wake up and leave it alone

  6. Democrats/liberals after guns !!! I wonder why – could it be they’re afraid of them or legal carrying gun owners are a threat versus the possession of illegal guns ??? What have they got to fear except themselves and their lax control of gun control and democratic cities that incite such happenings !!! They want to do away with police forces – what do families do to protect themselves ??? Rely on what ???

  7. Awsome post and straight to the point. I dont know if this is actually the best place to ask but do you folks have any thoughts on where to employ some professional writers? Thank you 🙂
