It’s Time To Contact Senators About SSA Gun Ban Vote

American gun owners should take this opportunity to contact their U.S. senators about an important piece of legislation that could be considered on the Senate floor as early as this week.

The U.S. House of Representatives last week passed House Joint Resolution 40, a measure that would repeal President Barack Obama’s not-so-subtle attempt to take guns from thousands of law-abiding Social Security Administration (SSA) beneficiaries. After the House vote, media and gun-ban advocates have launched a concerted fake news effort to discredit the measure as an attempt to arm the severely mentally ill.

In truth, according to NRA-ILA, the SSA rule is contrary to science, the Second Amendment and fundamental principles of due process; is unrelated to public safety; and cynically targets a misunderstood, marginalized population.
