(RepublicanInformer.com)- Freshman Republican Congressman Madison Cawthorn warned during a recent Newsmax TV interview that two new gun control measures passed in the House of Representatives on Thursday could potentially stop all sales and transfers of guns in the United States.
It would effectively remove every American’s Second Amendment right to bear arms.
Speaking on “American Agenda,” Cawthorn also warned that Congressional Democrats were using “extraordinarily benign names” to pass the extreme legislation.
“They sound like something that makes sense, but when you start a deep dig down into these bills – which is why I’m so disgusted by the way Democrats have been pushing these bills through Congress without giving people enough time to read them to the American people to understand them – (No.) 1, neither of these bills would stop either of these horrific shootings that happened and they’re saying they want to stop, specifically the one that happened in Charleston,” he said.
Kind of like the Equality Act – a bill pushed by the Democrats that advances the radical transgender cause and may ultimately lead to parents being stripped of the right to overturn a decision by their minor children to undergo hormone therapy.
Cawthorne also noted that the new anti-Second Amendment legislation proposed by the Democrats would allow the Department of Justice or the FBI to indefinitely hold up the purchase and transfer of firearms, should the departments ever become weaponized.
Under the “commonsense” gun control legislation put forward by Democrats, the FBI would have no time limit on pausing the sale of guns to anybody that they intend to investigate. Should a person flag on their system for any reason, be it a legitimate issue with a prior criminal record or something as minor as an individual having a similar name to a criminal or a terrorist, then that sale may never actually happen.
And the buyer wouldn’t be able to do anything about it.
On Wednesday, the day before the new bills were passed, Rep. Cawthorn used a floor debate to criticize the proposed bill.
“I want to remind my colleagues of a simple fact that is far too often swept under the rug by the left: Americans have a right to obtain firearms for lawful purposes,” he said.

“Let me be clear to everyone in this chamber, you will not take this right away from us. I know it’s easy to be sucked into the DC bubble, but outside of here, in real America, when we say ‘Come and Take It,’ we damn well mean it.”
And if this new legislation wasn’t enough, Diane Feinstein is also coming for your assault weapons.
The California Senator revealed that she was working on yet more reforms that will ban the sale of what she calls “assault weapons.”
I look forward to working with my colleagues to pass this bill and other reforms, including the assault weapons ban I will reintroduce in the coming weeks. With a new administration in the White House, it’s time to take action to end gun violence. pic.twitter.com/SRSJ7BSDs0

Whether or not these radical new bills become law depends on two things: whether some Senate Republicans cave and vote for them or the Democrats finally get rid of the filibuster and pass them with a simple majority.
