Gun Control & More Included in Next Stimulus Package

Quote:Gun grabbers – including some Republicans – are looking to make gun control a part of the most recent COVID-19 stimulus package, reports the National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR).


Quote:Included in the GOP proposal are some of the $3.8 billion in Pentagon programs canceled in a “reprogramming” notice the Trump administration released this year.

In one example, the administration sought to zero out a $261 million account for the Navy’s Expeditionary Fast Transport ship. The coronavirus bill would put $260 million back into this program. The ship is built by Austal USA, based in Shelby’s home state, Alabama.

The administration’s reprogramming notice also took $180 million from the budget for the Navy’s P-8A Poseidon aircraft, saying there were already enough planes and describing it as a “congressional special interest item.” The new bill would put more than $1 billion into the P-8A program.

And more.

There's all kind of crap hidden in these bills. And the Fast Transport trip you noted was cut because, much like the Navy's other recent acquisitions, it's pointless.
