The Senate recently passed the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, a significant piece of gun control legislation that will help create Red Flag Laws, enhanced background checks, and other firearm regulations, with the help of several high-profile Republican Senators.

Of the Republican Senators who pushed this legislation, of which were 15, many of them are recipients of NRA funding. These are the 11 US Senators who received the most funding from the NRA according to Newsweek; those names in red voted to pass this gun control legislation.

Mitt Romney (Utah) $13,647,676
Richard Burr (North Carolina) $6,987,380
Roy Blunt (Missouri) $4,555,722
Thom Tillis (North Carolina) $4,421,333
Marco Rubio (Florida) $3,303,355
Joni Ernst (Iowa) $3,124,773
Rob Portman (Ohio) $3,063,327
Todd C. Young (Indiana) $2,897,582
Bill Cassidy (Louisiana) $2,867,074
Tom Cotton (Arkansas) $1,968,714
Pat Toomey (Pennsylvania) $1,475,448

The NRA has sold the 2nd Amendment out once again. For reference, here is what the Senate bill would do:

Red Flag Laws

The legislation, as currently proposed, has numerous concerns regarding due process. The bill outlines that Americans will have a right to due process under the proposed Red Flag Laws but does not specify what it will do to protect the 5th and 4th amendment rights of Americans.

While Americans will be granted a right to an attorney during these proceedings, they will not be provided with one if they can not afford one. Unlike traditional cases, there are no public defenders in this space; you will be expected to provide your attorney.

Enhanced Background Checks for those Under 21

This bill included enhanced background checks for those purchasing a firearm under the age of 21. However, before the bill’s release, it was unknown what this meant.

These enhanced background checks will involve a waiting period of 3-10 business days, 3 being the minimum number of days, and 10 is the maximum it can be extended to if searching through records takes longer than expected. All agencies involved with the new background checks must inform the FFL by the third day if they need the full ten business days.

These new background checks will involve looking through state juvenile records, mental health records, and a check-in with a local law enforcement agency for any other disqualifying records.

Federal Firearms Licensee Changes

In what is the most concerning part of the bill, the government intends to change who is an FFL.

An FFL or a Federal Firearms Licensee is an individual with a government licensee to sell firearms. This bill would make those who are looking to liquidate their gun collection and those who inherit firearms that they want to sell an FFL. However, this would mean that those who fall into those circumstances must adhere to federal law regarding the buying and selling of firearms.

New Penalties for Straw Purchasers

This bill will allow new, increased penalties for those convicted of purchasing a firearm for a person prohibited from owning a firearm.

Current law allows for a $250,000 fine and five years in prison for straw purchasing. The newly proposed bill would allow for 15 years in prison, and if the firearm involved in the straw purchase was used for a “crime of terrorism,” the purchaser can face up to 25 years in prison.

The “Boyfriend Loophole”

This bill contains language that will redefine what a domestic partner is but fails to give specific guidelines. The bill reads:

“In its review, the Commission shall consider, in particular, an appropriate amendment to reflect the intent of Congress that straw purchases without significant criminal histories receive sentences that are sufficient to deter participation in such activities and reflect the defendant’s role and culpability, and any coercion, domestic violence survivor history, or other mitigating factors.”

Update: It’s amazing how giddy you were yesterday over the NRA’s victory at SCOTUS and then today it’s all about how bad they are because some GOP Senators decided to stab us in the back.

Sounds kind of two faced doesn’t it?

They stabbed the NRA in the back and I doubt they will get any more funding going forward.

The senators stabbed NRA members in the back, with the blessing of the ILA. That’s how it’s been since 1871. It’s what the NRA does.

These GOP Senators sold out the 2A not the NRA, unless you expect them to hire fortune tellers to tell them which politicians will turn traitor in the future and when.

Way to sound like a liberal…

1: DEMAND THAT THESE TRAITORS “RETURN” THE MONIES TO THE NRA AS THEY HAVE UNDERMINED THE 2nd AMENSMENT AND THE AMERICAN CITIZENS.
2: MOUNT A PROGRAM TO “REMOVE” THESE TRAITORS FOR “NOT” DEFENDING THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES, WHICH THEY TOOK AN OATH WHEN THEY WERE SWORN INTO OFFICE FROM ANY AND ALL GOVERNMENT AND POLITICAL OFFICES.
3: BAN THEM FROM EVER RUNNING OR HOLDING ANT GOVERNMENT OR POLITICAL OFFICE.
4.MAKE THEM PAY OUT OF THEIR OWN POCKETS FOR ANY “ARMED” SECURITY THEY WANT. NO BURDEN ON THE TAXPAYERS
5.PROSECUTE THEM FOR TREASON AND ACTS TO OVERTHROW THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES..

When was the money given? Two weeks ago? Six months ago? A year ago?
Without knowing when these Quislings received the donation, how can you blame the NRA for these RINO’s actions?

Blaming the NRA for these A$$holes actions is intellectually dishonest.

The NRA-ILA came out against this proposed Legislation before the Senate signed off on it and sent it to the House. Unless you can produce evidence that the NRA contacted the 14 with a “go ahead,” that’s a spurious an unvalidated claim. The NRA urged its members to call/write our Senators voicing our opposition to this legislation before it ever went out of committee.
I would hardly call that doing what the NRA wants.

The senators are doing EXACTLY what the NRA wants them to do. The NRA has been selling us a bill of goods, since 1871. No major gun law has ever been enacted that didn’t have the NRA’s blessing from the gitgo.

I would never give the NRA a single dime! These wolves in sheep clothing supported the 1968 Gun control act that was lifted directly out of Nazi Germany law.  They do not support the 2nd amendment in the least.

Watch the whiney NRA members, bitch and moan about how these scumbag senators sold us out. Fact of the matter is, the NRA “leadership,” especially under Wayne LaPierre, Chris Cox et al, are the driving force behind these compromise deals. On the other hand, the NRA has been Negotiating our Rights Away since 1871.

Here’s my question. Will the NRA continue to fund these Senators after their betrayal. I’m sure the NRA wasn’t the only Pro Gun entity throwing shekels at these Quislings prior to getting screwed over by them. If they continue to fund these A$$holes after their betrayal, then I take issue with that. The NRA may be just as upset as we all are at these Traitorous Hypocrites.

The NRA is just as much of a victim as Gun Owners are because of this betrayal.
We need to get these Products of Assholism Out Of Office for their betrayal as soon as we can, and make sure they know their betrayal is the reason why they’re being FIRED.

Hmmm ? When were these funds handed out ? These rascals on the red list need to be cut off from funds as well as red listed in future elections ! The once great NRA has become a sad example of giving into the Democrats led by Wayne Lee Peeery in his $3000. suits. I’ve joined the GOA as they do not cut deal with the radical left.
