Democrats Have Gotten Big Business Involved In The Destruction Of The Second Amendment- The Right To Bear Arms. You Won’t Believe Who Else Is Helping Them!
Unbelievable! It’s one thing that Democrats have teamed with big corporations to chip away at the American Constitution but Republicans are on the attack as well? Tonight’s news brought some disturbing facts to light.

Using the Congressional Review Act, Republicans and two Democrats passed a bill overturning the regulation. But the bill did more than that. It also prevents any future president from reinstituting the ban without new legislative authorization from Congress.
Unfortunately, the spending bill passed Thursday allows the ban to be reinstituted because it reauthorizes the 2007 National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) Improvement Amendments Act.

House Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions, R-Texas, said during testimony late Wednesday that he was “disturbed” that the bill would undo part of Republicans’ good work. But by Thursday morning, the House leadership had decided to go ahead with the measure.
