Chuck Grassley Writing Alternative Gun Bill
#1
Looks like we have another gun bill be crafted in the Senate, this one by Senator Grassley of Iowa.

Quote:The top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee is crafting his own bill to reduce gun violence as the White House and gun-control advocates continue a nationwide push for stricter gun laws.

Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley’s bill would be an alternative to a measure that Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is preparing. Reid’s bill is expected to include additional taxpayer aid for school safety, tougher penalties for gun trafficking, and expanded background checks for gun purchases.

“Sen. Grassley, along with other concerned members, is putting together an alternative bill that addresses gun violence in a manner that doesn’t violate the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens in contrast to what appears to be in the bill proposed by the majority leader,” Beth Levine, Grassley’s spokeswoman told Newsmax in an email.

I've heard rumors from GOA that Grassley is working with the WH on this legislation. If that's true...

Iowa will be my new home shortly. I will be watching this "Republican" very carefullyShrug

FROM the article:


Quote:“Sen. Grassley, along with other concerned members, is putting together an alternative bill that addresses gun violence in a manner that doesn’t violate the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens in contrast to what appears to be in the bill proposed by the majority leader,” Beth Levine, Grassley’s spokeswoman, told Newsmax in an email.

“It’s not finished yet, so we aren’t able to share it at this time. It will be ready when the majority leader’s bill is ready,” Levine said.

Grassley has supported cracking down on illegal gun trafficking and bolstering security at schools. However, he has said that he would not support expanding background checks on gun-buyers or renewing a ban on the sale of “assault” weapons.


I HOPE these fellows will filibuster their own side too if needed(if this is possible). Always tougher doing the right thing....against those who you are supposed to be aligned with.

Quote:But GOP Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky, Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah have said they plan to filibuster a procedural vote on any gun legislation, which will require 60 votes to overcome.
