On Thursday, Rep. Lauren Boebert led 28 of her colleagues in introducing the Shall Not Be Infringed Act. This bill seeks to repeal the so-called “Bipartisan Safer Communities Act,” legislation that was signed into law after numerous RINOs broke rank and failed to defend the Second Amendment.
Rep. Lauren Boebert stated, “The so-called ‘Bipartisan Safer Communities Act’ tramples on the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens and will have no significant impact in stopping mass shootings and deterring gun violence. This poorly written law was negotiated behind closed doors by a small group of Senate RINOs that do not reflect the interests and values of the American people. Shockingly, this bill was rushed to the floor a few days after introduction and didn’t receive a single Congressional hearing or markup despite the legal implications for millions of gun owners in America. Rather than hardening building security and allowing resources to be spent on training and staffing schools with more armed personnel, this bill seeks to bribe states with promises of Washington money for adopting red-flag gun seizure laws. The Shall Not Be Infringed Act fully repeals this unconstitutional bill and defends the Second Amendment rights of all Americans.”
