Representative Justin Amash (R-MI) is warning about an upcoming Republican Gun bill that he says would infringe on the “1st, 2nd, 5th & 6th Amendments.”
The bill is called the “Homeland Safety and Security Act,” and has been was introduced by Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). IDIOT!
The bill seems to be in response to the lunatic Democrat sit in last week.
Amash states: Under
#HR5611, govt denies your gun rights not because you committed or attempted a crime, but merely because govt claims you’ll act in the future.
A new homeland security bill introduced by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy contains a section on gun control that would infringe on several constitutional amendments, Michigan Republican Rep. Justin Amash warned on Twitter Sunday.
McCarthy’s bill, the “Homeland Safety and Security Act,” was introduced in response to House Democrats’ sit-in staged after House Speaker Paul Ryan and other House Republicans would not advance a gun control package after the Orlando nightclub shootings last month. The stated purpose of the bill is to “prevent terrorists from launching attacks and obtaining passports, and for other purposes,” but Amash lambasted it on Twitter:
Under the bill, the attorney general would be able to arrest and detain any person if there is probable cause to believe he or she has either committed, conspired, or attempted an act of terrorism. It would also establish the Office for Partnerships to Prevent Terrorism, a division in the Department of Homeland Security to combat radical Islamic terrorism.
House Republicans are pushing a horrendous bill this week. The gun section alone infringes the 1st, 2nd, 5th & 6th Amendments. #StopHR5611

Here comes another insane situation where we need to call congress and explain to them that we have a Constitution! How we got to the situation where our elected servants throw bills at us and worry about Constitutionality later is beyond me!
The House is expected to vote on the measures this week so there is no time to wait.
