The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives just passed two gun control bills that should be DOA.
H.R. 8 and H.R. 1112 both passed the House in the first serious gun control legislation to be passed in 25 years.
The White House released a statement earlier this week signaling President Trump will veto both bills if for some reason the Senate passes them:
“The extensive regulation required by H.R. 8 is incompatible with the Second Amendment’s guarantee of an individual right to keep arms. By overly extending the minimum time that a licensed entity is required to wait for background check results, H.R. 1112 would unduly impose burdensome delays on individuals seeking to purchase a firearm. If H.R. 8, or H.R. 1112, are presented to the President, his advisors would recommend he veto the bill.”
Freshman Republican Dan Crenshaw spoke about the truth on the universal background checks before the vote. The video is more great common sense coming from Crenshaw who has risen to the top of the class of new congressman.

Crenshaw is unafraid to speak out on what he believes in to Democrats like Adam Schiff:
Crenshaw called out Schiff on feel-good policies that do nothing to prevent gun violence.
Here’s what you left out:
#HR8 wouldn’t have prevented any of the horrific tragedies you just mentioned. People have a right to protect themselves, and you should not remove that right for feel-good policies that won’t actually DO any good.

Crenshaw also spoke with the NRA on the two bills:
We had a great conversation today with @RepDanCrenshaw about how #HR8 and #HR1112 exist to limit our constitutional rights under the guise of improving safety. Rep. Crenshaw is a freedom-fighting patriot and true defender of #2A. pic.twitter.com/lXJN68JNeq

If Crenshaw is the future of the Republican Party then we’re in great shape!
