Congressman introduces bill to end Federal funding for states with gun registration
Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) is taking aim at state gun registration schemes by introducing a bill to cut federal dollars for those jurisdictions.
His bill would eliminate Department of Justice funding through grant programs for state agencies that maintain a list or registry of gun owners. Introduced on April 2, it is currently being reviewed by the House Committee on the Judiciary.
“In states like New York, gun-grabbing politicians are using gun owner registries to hunt down law-abiding gun owners and demand they surrender their personal firearms,” said Stockman in a statement Wednesday.
“My bill ends anti-gun tyranny by cutting off the funds gun grabbers use to implement their tracking and confiscation schemes,” Stockman contends.
