NRA Warns That Chuck Schumer’s New Bill Is an ‘Attack on the Constitution Itself’

via CBS

The National Rifle Association (NRA) has strongly criticized Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s proposal to ban so-called assault weapons, claiming it is an attack on Second Amendment rights.

Schumer’s pledge to reintroduce the Assault Weapons Ban has been met with opposition from the NRA and Republican Senator John Barrasso, who argue that it would violate constitutional rights and burden law-abiding citizens. (Trending: Hunter Biden Indicted on 9 New Criminal Charges)

The debate comes amidst a record number of deadly mass shootings in the U.S. in 2023, with both sides presenting contrasting views on gun control legislation.

“Sen. Chuck Schumer launched a failed attack on the Constitution itself, targeting firearms legally owned and used by millions of Americans,” said Randy Kozuch, executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action.

“This is yet another attempt by gun control extremists to erode and eventually destroy our self-defense and Second Amendment rights,” he continued.

“This week, I will put the Assault Weapons Ban on the Senate floor,” Sen. Chuck Schumer wrote on X this week.

“After I led the passage of the Brady Bill and the Assault Weapons Ban 30 years ago, America saw a decrease in mass shootings and gun deaths,” the senator continued.

“We must stand with the American people and against the gun lobby,” he added.

“Almost every single page of the bill that’s in front of us today adds new restrictions and new burdens on people who follow the law,” contended Sen. Barrasso.

“It tells you what you can buy, what you can’t buy,” Barrasso continued.

Adding, “It bans more than 205 rifles, shotguns and pistols by name.

“Republicans reject these unjustified and unconstitutional restrictions,” proclaimed Barrasso.
