Second Amendment Group Rallies Members Against McCarthy’s First Gun Bill Aimed at Illegal Immigrants


House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has a gun bill planned for a vote soon that is aimed at rounding up illegal immigrants through the federal gun background check system. The bill would utilize the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System to attempt to find people who are in the United States illegally.
However, the Second Amendment advocacy group Gun Owners of America (GOA) alerted its members about legislation, warning that it would empower the FBI to target and conduct warrantless surveillance of law-abiding gun owners.
“I could think of a thousand ways to target illegal aliens without harassing law-abiding gun owners named Rodriguez,” GOA’s attorney Rob Olson told The Epoch Times in an interview.

House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-La.) put the bill “Illegal Alien NICS Alert Act” on the public list outlining the legislation to be brought to the floor for a vote in the first two weeks in session. The bill was first introduced by Rep. Gregory Steube (R-Fla.) in January 2021. It has not yet been filed in the new Congress.
