YOUR VOICE WAS HEARD – OBAMA ABANDONS BULLET BAN

 

YOUR VOICE WAS HEARD – OBAMA ABANDONS BULLET BAN

This past week, I joined with other colleagues in the House to demand that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) not go forward with a plan to ban bullets used for the AR-15, the most popular sporting rifle in the United States. I simply will not stand for attempts by the Obama administration to infringe upon our Second Amendment rights.

85% of you told me that you disagree with the president's backdoor bullet ban. Afterputting the pressure on the Obama administration, it has announced it will abandon its plan to ban this bullet. 

 

Your voice was heard, and your voice mattered.  The overwhelming opposition of my constituents to this proposed ban helped me convince colleagues to take a united stand against this constitutional overreach.  

As a member of the House Judiciary Committee, I will continue to be the first line of defense for safeguarding the Constitution and holding the Obama administration in check. We cannot allow the president to circumvent the Constitution and attempt to write laws on his own. I believe I was sent to Congress to defend the Constitution, not rubber stamp its abuse. 

I urge you to continue to reach out to my office about the issues that matter most to you.  As your voice in Congress, I work for you. Every time I vote, I remind myself that I’m voting on behalf of 700,000 Texans.  That’s a privilege I take very seriously.                                  
 
God Bless,

John Ratcliffe 

U.S. Representative for the 4th Congressional District of Texas
