Below the Radar: The Urban Progress Act of 2020
United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- Omnibus bills are often tools that can be used for all sorts of mischief. They end up being behemoths that nobody can really read, much less understand, in time to make an informed vote. That means all sorts of stuff can be slipped in there… and to paraphrase what Nancy Pelosi once said, you don’t find out what’s in there until it’s passed.
HR 6318, The Urban Progress Act, introduced by Representative Robin Kelly (D-IL), is one of those omnibus bills. The good news is, it’s been recently introduced, and with the text online, we can locate the problematic aspects of this bill, and expose them to the disinfectant of sunlight.
One thing to note: This bill has been referred to nine committees. In addition to the House Judiciary Committee, eight others will get a bite at this bill. That’s a lot of chefs in the kitchen. But one portion should be of particular note: Title III, titled “Common Sense Gun Violence Prevention.”
