Congress Experiences Rush Of Federal Gun Bills

posted on January 12, 2016

Congress saw a flurry of legislative activity on guns this past week, with the introduction of 11 bills, including two significant pro-gun bills. The D.C. Personal Protection Reciprocity Act would allow gun owners with a valid concealed-carry permit from other states to carry a firearm in the District of Columbia. The Firearms Manufacturers and Dealers Protection Act of 2015 would end Operation Choke Point, which under the guise of fighting illegal arms trafficking has targeted gun sellers without the benefit of due process. 

The roundup also introduced the Gun Violence Reduction Resources Act, the NICS Denial Notification Act, the Gun Show Loophole Closing Act of 2015, the Safer Communities Act of 2015, and the Establishing the Select Committee on Gun Violence Prevention—mostly bills establishing laws that already exist or seeking to lend legitimacy to President Obama’s announced executive orders on gun control.
