    House Votes to Put Anti-gun ObamaCare and ATF on Chopping Block

    Last Friday, the House tacked defunding of the anti-gun ObamaCare law onto the "continuing resolution," which is required to fund the federal government through September 30.

    In a series of four votes, the House approved:

    * An amendment offered by Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-MT) to defund ObamaCare for the next six months;

    * Two amendments sponsored by Rep. Steve King (R-IA) to defund previously appropriated provisions of ObamaCare; and,

    * An amendment offered by Rep. Jo Ann Emerson (R-MO) to defund IRS implementation of the "individual mandate," which is the ObamaCare requirement that forces Americans to cough up their medical information which could later be used by the FBI to block gun purchases (and forces them to buy government-approved insurance).

    In addition, the House, by a sizable majority, adopted the Boren-Rehberg amendment to defund ATF's efforts to create a new gun registry for many multiple gun sales. (Rep. Dan Boren is a Democrat from Oklahoma.)

    Gun Owners of America contacted every member of the House of Representatives prior to the vote on the Boren-Rehberg amendment. This is an important provision that will stop the ATF's attempts to illegally register gun owners.

    Since last year, the ATF has been trying to require licensed firearms dealers (in some states) to report to the government the sale of two or more semi-automatic rifles that are .22 caliber or greater, that can accept a detachable magazine, and that are purchased by the same person within five business days.

    The House's actions last week put us in a position where 41 senators can force Democrats to either:

    1. Defund the anti-gun ObamaCare, plus ATF's unlawful gun registry; or

    2. Shut down the non-essential functions of the Obama administration, including ATF.

    Shutting down the ATF would represent a boon for gun owners' rights. (Click here to see GOA's report on the most recent egregious abuse by the ATF.)

    The fight to defang the ATF -- and to repeal ObamaCare -- are two top priorities at Gun Owners of America.

    Given that there are 47 Republicans in the Senate -- and 51 senators who purport to oppose ObamaCare's mandate that you buy insurance you don't want -- you would think that defunding ObamaCare and the ATF would be an imminently winnable fight, right?

    Well, let's hope so. Because you can be sure of this... if the shoe were on the other foot, Senator Barack Obama (in 2008) would NOT have shied away from shutting down the non-essential functions of the Bush administration in order to get his way.

    Heck, no!

    The good news is that we have the vehicle to kill ObamaCare and the ATF's unlawful multiple sales registry -- if we just have the will to do so.

    ACTION: Contact your two Senators and insist they filibuster any version of the "continuing resolution" which does not defund ObamaCare and bar funds for ATF's unlawful multiple gun sales registry.

    It's not defunding the BATF, unfortunately. It's only defunding the multiple long gun sales reporting that the ATF is pushing in the name of border security.

    I know, but it's always been a fantasy of mine to see the Jack Booted Thugs out of a job.
