Over the years, there have been a number of laws introduced into the US. Senate and House that deal with gun control in some fashion. Not all of them have become law, but there have been some significant ones that have impacted us all and I believe violate the Second Amendment.
My wife saw this graphic that listed seven major gun control laws that had become laws and forwarded it to me. I did a little research on who was president at the time and which political parties controlled the Senate and House. I found a very interesting trend that points a huge finger at the liberal Democratic Party starting back in 1934.
Here is that list of seven (eight actually as I added one that was ruled unconstitutional by the US Supreme Court five years after being signed into law.)
1934 – National Firearms Act – FDR – Dem; Sen – Dem; House – Dem
1968 – Gun Control Act – LBJ – Dem; Sen – Dem; House – Dem
1986 – Firearms Owners Protection Act – Reagan – GOP; Sen – GOP, House – Dem
1990 – Gun Free School Zone Act* – GHW Bush – GOP; Sen – Dem; House – Dem
*Ruled unconstitutional by US Supreme Court in 1995, when it was revised and passed.
1993 – Brady Handgun Violence Act – Clinton – Dem; Sen – Dem; House – Dem
1994 – Assault Weapons Ban – Clinton – Dem; Sen – Dem; House – Dem
1995 – Gun Free School Zones Act – Clinton – Dem; Sen – GOP; House – GOP
Now here is a list of the gun control bills that have been introduced into the US House and US Senate so far year. I may have missed some and if I have, I apologize, but I hope that you still understand the scope of danger we are in from a liberal progressive administration that wants to disarm the American citizenry.
The link provided with each will take you to a tracking cite so you can get a summary of each one and then follow the progress of each resolution or bill. It also tells you who sponsored or introduced the bill.
Realize that again, we have a Democratic president, the Senate is controlled by Democrats but the House is controlled by Republicans. I hope you see a very dangerous agenda here and contact your Representative and Senator and tell them to vote no on these unconstitutional measures.
2013 – HR 137 or Fix Gun Checks Act
