Gun Sense Begins in the House
Here are 7 WHITE MEN from ILLINOIS who have been bought by the NRA. We can call them TODAY regarding HB 367** (the silencer amendment– it’s to protect our HEARING, isn’t that thoughful?) since they are the ones who perpetrate most violent crimes in our country. In the U.S., 98 percent of mass shootings and 90 percent of all murders are committed by men according to Newsweek last week and a vast majority of those are by white men. If every Muslim can be off-handedly turned into an intentionally profiled would-be terrorist, so should these men be responsible for “their kind”. (Doesn’t sound so nice does it? Maybe you can point that out in the call.)
Let them know you hold them personally responsible for every mass shooting in this country. The gloves are off and the life you save my be your own or your child’s.

HB 367 Hearing Protection Act of 2017
This bill amends the Internal Revenue Code to: (1) eliminate the $200 transfer tax on firearm silencers, and (2) treat any person who acquires or possesses a firearm silencer as meeting any registration or licensing requirements of the National Firearms Act with respect to such silencer. Any person who pays a transfer tax on a silencer after October 22, 2015, may receive a refund of such tax.
The bill amends the federal criminal code to preempt state or local laws that tax or regulate firearm silencers.
