    Stockman slams Cornyn’s Anti-Gun Bloomberg Bill



    RINO Cornyn Joins Lyndsssssey Graham To Support Bloomberg Anti-Gun Bill:
    ***

    …Congressman Steve Stockman announced Wednesday he is organizing opposition to an anti-gun control bill to be introduced this year by U.S. Senators John Cornyn and Lindsay Graham, which appears to closely follow an Executive Order issued last Friday by President Barack Obama.

    Cornyn announced the bill in an interview this month with traditionally liberal “Texas Monthly” magazine. According to Cornyn the “Graham-Cornyn Mental Health and Criminal Justice Reform Act” expands the National Instant Criminal Background Check (NICS) system to include Americans who have sought treatment for mental health issues. The bill seems to be nearly identical to an Executive Order issued last Friday by Obama.

    “Cornyn’s Bloomberg Bill is the Holy Grail of gun control,” said Stockman. “Cornyn’s Bloomberg Bill is an aggressive expansion of the anti-gun agenda. Unable to ban guns they are now banning law-abiding gun owners, and Cornyn is leading the charge.”

    “John Cornyn has opened a new front in the Left’s War on Guns by now seeking to ban law-abiding gun owners. Cornyn’s Bloomberg Bill is the same gun control bill demanded by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and appears to be nearly identical to Barack Obama’s latest Executive Order,” said Stockman. “With Republicans like Cornyn who needs Democrats?”

    PRESS RELEASE

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Congressman Steve Stockman announced Wednesday he is organizing opposition to an anti-gun control bill to be introduced this year by U.S. Senators John Cornyn and Lindsay Graham, which appears to closely follow an Executive Order issued last Friday by President Barack Obama.

    Cornyn announced the bill in an interview this month with traditionally liberal “Texas Monthly” magazine. According to Cornyn the “Graham-Cornyn Mental Health and Criminal Justice Reform Act” expands the National Instant Criminal Background Check (NICS) system to include Americans who have sought treatment for mental health issues. The bill seems to be nearly identical to an Executive Order issued last Friday by Obama.

    “Cornyn’s Bloomberg Bill is the Holy Grail of gun control,” said Stockman. “Cornyn’s Bloomberg Bill is an aggressive expansion of the anti-gun agenda. Unable to ban guns they are now banning law-abiding gun owners, and Cornyn is leading the charge.”

    “John Cornyn has opened a new front in the Left's War on Guns by now seeking to ban law-abiding gun owners. Cornyn’s Bloomberg Bill is the same gun control bill demanded by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and appears to be nearly identical to Barack Obama's latest Executive Order,” said Stockman. “With Republicans like Cornyn who needs Democrats?”

    Cornyn’s examples of those to be stripped of their Second Amendment rights under his bill were people who sought treatment, but had no criminal record and had never been deemed a threat by doctors or a court.

    “It throws millions of Americans on a lifetime gun ban list without a court hearing or due process of law. Even worse, Cornyn’s Bloomberg Bill strips military veterans of their constitutional rights just for speaking to a medical professional about their combat experience,” said Stockman. “There is nothing more un-American than stripping law-abiding veterans of their constitutional rights.”

    Last year Stockman introduced the Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act (HR 577,) which requires that a judge issue an order that an individual is a danger to self or others before a veteran’s ability to receive or transport guns is taken away.

    Stockman, along with Senator Rand Paul, also introduced the Restore the Constitution Act ( HR 410) which nullifies and prohibits funding of any executive action that oversteps the President’s constitutional authority.

    “It’s a stark contrast. John Cornyn’s bill would follow Obama’s Order and ban many law-abiding veterans from owning guns. My bills block Obama’s orders and protect veterans by banning the government from taking their guns away,” said Stockman.

    Stockman is endorsed by Gun Owners of America and has a 100% lifetime rating from the NRA.

    Black Blade: Strange how Texas has been slowly moving toward anti-gun sentiment in the last few years. They used to lead the charge for gun rights.

    If it passes those who need mental help will not seek it an then look out .

    being sad because you were divorced or a loved one died or lost a job an trying a anti depresant will cost you your guns , trying a ADD med will cost you your guns .

    I think a lot of shrinks will loose a lot of customers .

    Im not sure why veterans should get special treatment here this should be the same for every American.

    This is a real shame....I remember watching a senate debate earlier this year when Feinstein and her supporters were pushing their bullshit and Cornyn made them look like absolute idiots with his questioning/statements(which were all pro-gun). Just goes to show you literally cant trust a single one of em.

Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”

    agreed Cornyn has done some strange sh*t very RINO ish in his stands and this is not a good bill,
    but on the 10th of january he introduced Constitutional concealed carry

    http://www.alicetx.com/opinion/artic...fbb314d74.html

    I support forcing anti gun states to recognize my concealed carry permit/license , like my driver license and marriage license
    Sprat and sprat1 are one and the same.

    If it closely resembles Barky's EO, then it is a No Go IMHO.

    They don't believe in the OATH they take when they are sworn into office, and when you challenge them, they tell you that the 2nd is just like a driver's license. Pathetic!!

    Well this is good. Just another layer for an unelected government official to pick and choose who the Bill of Rights applies to. First New York wants to treat gun owners like registered sex offenders and now they are trying to push a Bill that would subject law abiding people to the same result on a background check as if they were a convicted felon.
