House Passes Backdoor Gun Ban for Boyfriends, Dates

 In 2nd Amendment, Politics

We wrote previously that Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Democrats in the House were planning to add a gun ban to the “Violence Against Women Act.” You know, to “protect” women. She let it expire on purpose so they could add the gun ban, and it worked. The tradition of re-upping the bill went through in spite of the partisan politics in it. But many Republican Representatives in Congress weren’t happy that she used women as political pawns. Vital programs for women could lose funding.

“Nancy Pelosi forced it to expire so she could use women as part of some political leverage.” Rep Steve Scalise (R-LA) in Breitbart

Idaho’s freshman Rep Russ Fulcher, actually read the bill and released this media response because he did not vote for the Democrats’ scheme. (Emphasis in the press release is mine)

“Although a bill called the “Violence Against Women Act” sounds like an effort everyone can support, upon looking further into this legislation, I found several provisions that concerned me. Among them:

The bill expands the list of misdemeanor convictions that can result in a permanent ban on an individual being able to purchase a gun.

Creates a new lifetime prohibition for person’s convicted of “stalking” crimes, that could include emotional distress as adequate evidence for a gun purchase ban.

Applies prohibitions on certain and related misdemeanor convictions to those that occurred before the legislation would be passed.

The bill allows federal grant funds to be used to develop and implement assault and violence policies that result in victims and accused being in the same room. This can not only be traumatizing for the victim, but may also pose legal consequences. In a non-courtroom setting where both sides are discussing what happened, the alleged victim could be revealing information and emotion in a way that could undermine that information in court.  For the alleged perpetrator, they could be unduly “quasi-adjudicated” in a process that does NOT follow proper court procedures.  This could not only violate the 4thAmendment of the U.S. Constitution, but also undermine a credible case of sexual assault.

The bill expands tribal jurisdiction over “non-tribal people.”  These include giving tribal government law enforcement authority over non-tribal individuals when in regard to “domestic violence, dating violence, obstruction of justice, sexual violence, sex trafficking, stalking, and assault of a law enforcement or corrections officer.”  In the past, any legal concern by a tribal law enforcement authority has meant working with non-tribal law enforcement to investigate, arrest, etc. This should continue to be a joint effort.

Additionally, republicans have requested for this bill to be passed multiple times in its original form, without the partisan portions that have been added to the bill. Instead, democrats have insisted that this controversial, partisan version is voted on, which is not likely to be approved by the Senate or signed by the President, and could result in a lapse of funding for these vital programs.”

The real Violence Against Women Act was passed many years ago and re-upped every time it was about to expire as a bipartisan action. But Democrats allowed this bill to expire this time so they could play partisan politics. Rep Fulcher is correct, it is unlikely to pass the Senate or the President. Way to go, Nancy.

    Correct me if I’m wrong. I believe every new law they pass, exists an already existing law that already addresses this issue. I think they are passing so many damn laws, that an attorney can pick whichever one he wants to prove his case. US legal system and progressives are a joke

    We do need to take our country back and make the House of Representatives and the Senate directly answerable to us on a weekly basis . We elect them, we pay their salaries, we expect honesty and action in their service to us. The question is how can we make it happen? I think a system (? Computer) that lists the issues, lists synopsis and detailed information about the issues, creates a timetable for action and action taken , should be provided to every American (not illegal aliens) so we can be in front of the issues and left to spin our wheels. Does anyone have a suggestion how to do this so we can hold the elected officials accountable to us on a regular basis? Instead of our current system of representation over years, I think the time has come (with the computer age and speed of communication) for us to change the accountability of our elected individuals‼️

    You pick up a newspaper, a magazine, a peek at FB and the internet… and in all of these place you find women beaten, strangled, bludgeoned, knifed, burned… brutally murdered without a GUN. Ted Bundy murdered 36 women, not one of them with a gun. One on one, women are the first targets for a man to go after… very seldom are they killed with a gun. This bill among many that will follow in the next two years is about CONTROL of the masses… they will still have their armed protectors. And for a fact we don’t need anymore damn laws. Our congress won’t fix the ones we have… the blood is one their hands.

    Time to take a “VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE” in Washington and call for a Confederation of States. This would give the people back their rights and destroy the Democratic Socialist Train set to destroy our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Congress and the Senate have been in violation of the Constitution for more than 100 yrs by voting themselves pay raises and passing legislation on their healthcare and retirement that the rest of us don’t have and can’t get, they should live by the same laws that we do. CONGRESS SHALL NOT PASS ANY LAW THAT THEY THEMSELVES DO NOT LIVE BY!!

    Cleaning up the process. To end these bad bills full of pork and bad law, Make this one tiny change. All bills will be allowed to have one item. Each will be voted on up or down no attachments, noting except a real bill clean and precise. No compromises, govt. managed and passed on the individual merits of the law.
