The vote was on a Mike Thompson (D-CA) and Peter King (R-NY) amendment to the Commerce-Justice-Science funding bill. Both Representatives hold an “F” rating with Gun Owners of America.
Their amendment would add an additional $19.5 million to pay states to turn in more names to the federal gun-ban (NICS) list.
FK – When I tried to do this, the letter to Whitfield, my rep., thanked him for voting against the bill but he’s listed as voting for it. When I tried to email GOA I’m not sure if the form submitted correctly. Haven’t heard back from them.
