Texas Congressman John Carter Fights ATF Rifle Registration with Amendment to Defund Federal Registry, Passes!

Via LH

“Buying and owning a gun is the right of each and every American. Frankly the federal government has been stepping all over that right and it’s time to rein it in…The government has no business tracking the gun purchases of law-abiding citizens. American’s should not be placed on a watch list for simply exercising their constitutional rights. President Obama should focus his attention on criminals rather than honest citizens exercising their rights.”
 -Congressman Carter on defunding the ATF Southwest Rifle Registration Program

Texas Congressman John Carter is standing up for gun owners and the gun industry with new legislation targeting and stopping the ATF Federal Rifle Registration Program by defunding it.

Congressman Carter introduced his Amendment to the 2014 Commerce, Justice and Science Appropriations Bill, which would defund the unconstitutional ATF rifle registration program by forbidding any federal funds be used for it in accordance with Section 923 of Title 18, United States Code, US law related to licensing in the American gun industry. The Amendment passed and will go to the House of Representatives within the 2014 Commerce, Justice, and Science Appropriations Bill.
