Proposed Federal House Legislation HB5779

this is an anti-gun bill   evalutation

A bill removing authority from the elected District Attorney in most incidents involving use of deadly force. The sponsors of this bill have a long history of anti-police rhetoric and often allege wrongdoing by law enforcement where there is none. Their efforts tend to focus more on supporting criminals than the good in society. For that reason, we believe the authority to decide in this incidents should remain with the chief law enforcement officer in each jurisdiction, the elected District Attorney.
