Statement from the National Rifle Association of America in Response to Pelosi “Gun Violence Prevention Task Force” Proposals

Thursday, February 7, 2013

Fairfax, Va. – The proposals by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s “Gun Violence Prevention Task Force”, chaired by Rep. Mike Thompson (D-Calif.), represent the Obama Administration’s gun control wish list. 

The Pelosi-Thompson Task Force calls on Congress to ban millions of commonly owned semi-automatic firearms and magazines; criminalize private firearms transfers; ban common hunting and sport-shooting ammunition; waste taxpayer dollars on government studies to promote gun control and on flawed and ineffective “gun buyback” programs; and remove legal protections on sensitive law enforcement information. 

“The 4.5 million men and women of the National Rifle Association and our tens of millions of supporters across the country strongly oppose this effort to enact the Obama gun control agenda”, said Chris W. Cox.  “The last thing America needs is more failed solutions to our nation’s most pressing problems.  Congress should instead focus its energies on the things that will actually keep our families and communities safer – prosecuting criminals who misuse firearms; securing our schools; and fixing the broken mental health system that keeps dangerously ill people on the street.”
