Gun Owners of America issued a news release communicating that the fate of gun control could be determined in the next few days. In fact, Senator Harry Reid has moved to proceed to Senate Bill 649, the Safe Communities, Safe Schools Act of 2013.

Discussing the matter with Jim was Erich Pratt, Director of Communications with Gun Owners of America.

Erich believes that SB-649 will not do anything to make schools safer and instead feels this is all about restricting the 2nd Amendment rights that we enjoy.

SB-649 would put you in jail for 15 years if you sold guns to someone and you didn’t realize they were a prohibited person. Erich also noted that nothing in Senator Harry Reid’s bill would have prevented the carnage that took place in Newtown, Pennsylvania.

Erich indicated that Gun Owners of America has been working with Rand Paul of Kentucky, Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah to begin a filibuster to prevent SB-649 from even coming up for a vote. However, Senator Pat Toomey from Pennsylvania has made a deal with Joe Mansion, a Democrat from West Virginia and they are promoting their own bill as a compromise which may give other Senators the excuse they need to go ahead and vote for Harry Reid’s bill.

The final language that goes into the bill is critical to protecting your 2nd Amendment rights and you can voice your concerns via the legislative hotline number listed below.

Later in the program Jim also discussed two articles that highlight the fact that our government believes evangelical Christians are an extremist threat to America.
