Rep. Stephanie Borowicz (R-Clinton/Union) today condemned Democrat legislation and votes last week which violated our state and federal constitutions.
Borowicz issued the following statement:
“Last week, Democrats brought forth four unconstitutional gun control bills to the state House. Republicans were able to strike down one of these measures, a bill that would make gun owners criminals if they lost their gun or someone stole their firearm.
“However, two of these unconstitutional bills passed the House and were sent over to the Senate – a so-called “red flag law” and a background check “expansion” that actually creates a statewide registration of all firearms and their owners’ identities. Every country that has instituted gun registration – be it Cuba, Australia or Nazi Germany – has followed it up with nationwide confiscation.
“The fourth bill, Mandatory Storage of Guns, would require firearms to be kept locked when not in use and penalizes owners whose unsecured firearm is later used in a crime. Of course, such requirements render the ability for self-defense completely useless. Democrats pulled this bill from the floor, presumably because they had overreached and did not have the votes for passage.
“Here are my floor speeches fighting against the “red flag law
” and the background check/gun registration bill
“Please pay attention to what is happening in the state House
. I am fighting back and standing up for your God-given rights.”
