Dear Senator Marshall and Representative Clyde,
On behalf of more than 2.2 million members of the Association of Mature American Citizens – AMAC, I write to offer our support for S. 4986 and its House companion, H.R. 9033, the “Stop Harassing Owners of Rifles Today (SHORT) Act.” We applaud you and your cosponsors for hitting this important Constitutional Second Amendment issue head-on.
Sadly, the political Left, whether in Congress, the Executive Branch, or outside organizations constantly seek to erode our Constitution and Bill of Rights in their strategy to diminish Americans’ Second Amendment rights.
Senator Marshall, as you stated, and with which we fully agree: “The ATF’s federal gun registry is just the latest proof that the Biden Administration has no understanding of firearms and only seeks to limit American citizens’ ability to rightfully own firearms of their choosing. Gun control activists disguised as bureaucrats are corrupting the ATF, and my legislation will put a stop to their extremely misguided and incorrect interpretations of the National Firearms Act (NFA).”
Representative Clyde, you aptly note: “As stewards of the Constitution, Members of Congress cannot allow President Biden to further trample on Americans’ Second Amendment liberties through the continued weaponization of the NFA. By deregulating these NFA firearms, this legislation prohibits the ATF from enacting an unconstitutional pistol ban through a simple rule change — safeguarding the Second Amendment and preventing Americans from being subjected to the Biden Administration’s tyrannical, gun-grabbing tactics. I’m proud to partner with Senator Marshall in leading the fight to protect Americans’ unalienable, constitutional right to keep and bear arms against President Biden’s relentless
attacks on law-abiding gun owners.”
AMAC thanks you, Senator Marshall, and Representative Clyde, for your commitment to the Constitution and strong leadership in introducing this important legislation to protect the Second Amendment.
