NRA Responds to Senate’s Gun Control Package

The National Rifle Association has responded to the gun control deal that just passed through the senate, with the help of ten Republicans.

The package includes plans to assist states in creating and implementing red flag laws, prohibit those convicted of domestic violence from being able to own guns, and listing more gun sellers as Federally Licensed Firearm dealers — which would require them to do background checks.

Additionally, it will provide “major investments to increase access to mental health and suicide prevention programs; and other support services available in the community, including crisis and trauma intervention and recovery.”

In response to the package, the NRA tweeted that, “the NRA is committed to real solutions to help stop violence in our communities. We encourage our elected officials to provide more resources to secure our schools, fix to our severely broken mental health system and support law enforcement.”

“As is our policy, the NRA does not take positions on ‘frameworks’. We will make our position known when the full text of the bill is available for review,” the statement continued. “NRA will continue to oppose any effort to insert gun control policies, initiatives that override constitutional due process protections & efforts to deprive law-abiding citizens of their fundamental right to protect themselves/loved ones into this or any other legislation.”
