    I believe the combined bill has already passed the House. Is that not so?

    By combined bill, I mean the bill that combined or merged the reciprocity bill with the House version of the fix NICS bill.

    Texas, ya'll
    If that is the case, then we need to hold the legislators accountable for voting for or introducing any bill that attempts to violate the 2nd Amendment. That's obviously treasonous behavior and as such, they deserve to rot in the worst prison we can find for the rest of their lives. The Founding Fathers made the 2nd Amendment pretty easy to understand. They explicitly stated, "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED". They did not provide for ANY exceptions. As such, every gun law out there that attempts to restrict or regulate firearms is blatantly unconstitutional.

    We also need to quit combining these bills together. A bill needs to be able to stand on its own right.

    Here’s answer:
    https://www.usnews.com/news/politic...mit-to-new-fix-nics-bill-in-house?context=amp

    The reason the House version only has 9 votes in support of the House version of ‘fix NICS’ is because they’ve abandoned passing the ‘stand alone’ bill. The House version of the ‘fix NICS’ bill is included in the same bill as the House reciprocity bill and it has already been passed (by the House).

    And here’s the GOA warning to House members (especially Republicans) as to how they will score their voting record on this attempt to attach a “clean version” of the ‘fix NICS’ to the Omnibus bill.

    I’m still not sure why they feel the need to attach a “clean version” of the ‘fix NICS’ bill to the Omnibus spending bill.

    Unless this is just some kind of maneuver to keep member’s votes on the reciprocity bill from being recorded and made a public record, it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. I think it’s just some kind of “gamesmanship” going on....

    Seems like GOA could have explained that to those of us who don’t have a through knowledge of the internal political workings of Congress.
