PostSubject: King and Thompson to Introduce Gun Bill in House   Sat Apr 13, 2013 2:41 pm

Republican Peter King of New York and Democrat Mike Thompson of California plan to introduce a replicated version of the Senate gun bill in the House next week.

“I will be introducing, along with Mike Thompson, basically the House version of the Manchin-Toomey bill on Monday or Tuesday at the latest,” King said.

King said imposing mandatory gun purchase background checks on the American people is the “best route to go.” He admitted working closely with Republican Senator Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania on the House version of the Senate bill. If passed, it will impose de facto firearms registration ahead of eventual confiscation.

The New York representative said he will introduce the bill “probably be Monday or Tuesday at the latest” and will have a legislative office draft of the bill “ready on Monday. We’re also showing [it] to a number of possible other co-sponsors.”

King said none of his House colleagues have voiced support for the House bill, but explained “when the time comes, if it comes to a vote, there will be significant support among Republicans” to undermine the Constitution.

We’re not talking about a majority, but a significant number realize we have to do something,” he said. “Certainly having Pat Toomey involved, who was such a solid conservative, and when you see the polls saying 90 percent [of Americans are] supporting [background checks], many Republicans see that as the way to go.”

So far, King is the only House Republican to support the House version. He represents a suburban Long Island district where residents support weakening the Second Amendment rights of Americans who own firearms.

AOL Huffington Post predicts a House version of the anti-Second Amendment legislation may pass if the Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner of Ohio, decides to bring it up for a vote.
