The Gun Owners of America released an alert this weektrying to smoke out a betrayal they claim is in the works.
"The biggest threat to gun owners in the omnibus is the potential that the anti-gun Fix NICS may be added into the bill before it comes to the floor," the alert said. "If Fix NICS (or Take the Guns First) language is added, it will kill concealed carry reciprocity for the rest of the year."
The GOA warned that Obama-like gun control, an anti-gun Obamacare bailout, amnesty for anti-gun voters, or an internet sales tax on gun purchases could be added to the omnibus spending legislation. The group is hoping that Republicans will follow its platform, and refuse to comply with big spending Democrats who want to enact sweeping gun control provisions.
"Our message to House Republicans is this: If the omnibus spending bill is turning into such a Democratic bill — pursuing a Democratic anti-gun agenda — then let the Democrats provide the votes to pass it," the alert said.
