Proposed Federal House Legislation HR318

this is an anti-gun bill   evalutation

A resolution from a group of anti-gun congressmen and congresswomen railing against so-called gun violence while at the same time calling for much more stringent gun-control measures. This measure is being mentally open ended vehement anti-gun rhetoric!

Subject: Business records: Criminal investigation, prosecution, interrogation: Criminal justice information and records: Firearms and explosives: Government information and archives: Retail and wholesale trades: State and local government operations: Violent crime: Crime and law enforcement

Description: Expresses support for the President's Plan to Reduce Gun Violence. Urges: (1) Congress to enact legislation based on the President's recommendations to reduce gun violence, (2) state legislatures to reject proposed stand-your-ground legislation, and (3) states to repeal enacted stand-your-ground laws. Condemns: (1) gun violence, (2) relevant parties for their roles in obstructing the ability of communities to be safe from gun violence and in proposing stand-your-ground legislation and similar legislation that compromises public safety and the integrity of the prosecutorial system, and (3) all efforts to weaken gun laws and proposals that stand in the way of comprehensive gun law reform.
