NRA pledges to continue to oppose any effort to override ‘fundamental right’ of self-defense

The NRA responded to the Senate gun control deal by making it clear that the organization will continue to oppose any effort to override the “fundamental right” of law-abiding citizens to self-defense.

In a series of three tweets, the NRA Explain that their position is that the Senate agreement, at this point, is only a framework, and “the NRA does not take a position on ‘frameworks.'”

The NRA said it would comment “when the full text of the bill is available for review.”

They emphasized, “The NRA will continue to oppose any effort to insert gun control policies, initiatives that override constitutional due process protections, and efforts to deprive law-abiding citizens of their fundamental right to protect themselves/their loved ones in this legislation or in any other legislation”.

Breitbart News reported that the Senate deal contains incentives for states to pass red flag laws, deeper records searches for gun buyers under 21, a crackdown on criminal purchases straw, funding for mental health, funding for school safety and school safety measures designed to “help put in place safety measures in and around elementary and secondary schools, support efforts to prevent school violence and provide training for school staff and students”, among others.
