Top 10 Anti-Gun Representatives
Ranked by the National Rifle Association.
10. Sheila Jackson Lee (D.-Tex.):
Always prepared to offer anti-gun amendments, whether they’re relevant to a bill or not.
9. Diana DeGette (D.-Colo.):
A reliable fixture at press conferences on any anti-gun initiative. Wants to hold gun manufacturers liable for the illegal use of firearms.
8. Mike Castle (R.-Del.):
Consistent sponsor of anti-gun legislation. One of only six House Republicans to vote against the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act that restricted reckless anti-gun lawsuits.
7. Anthony Weiner (D.-N.Y.):
Promotes New York City gun laws (among the most restrictive in the nation) as a model for the rest of the country.
6. Carolyn McCarthy (D.-N.Y.):
Sponsor of unsuccessful legislation to drastically expand the "assault weapon" ban of 1994-2004 to cover even more guns. Gun-control supporters claimed a crime wave would ensue after the ban’s demise, but violent crime instead fell to a 30-year low.
5. Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.):
A reliable vote for anti-gun legislation, and poised to put anti-gun bills at the top of the agenda if she becomes Speaker.
4. Jim Moran (D.-Va.):
One of only four representatives who voted against requiring that, in the event that a prospective firearm purchaser is rejected by the national background check system, the government must tell the person why.
3. Zoe Lofgren (D.-Calif.):
Always ready to lead the "Million Moms" on the House floor in favor of any anti-gun legislation, no matter how extreme.
2. Henry Waxman (D.-Calif.):
Like the child who can’t understand the meaning of "no," Waxman is the congressman who most frequently turns to the GAO to conduct studies designed to support "gun control" schemes he knows do not have support in Congress.
1. John Conyers (D.-Mich.):
The only current House member who voted for the Gun Control Act of 1968, has been a vocal opponent of 2nd Amendment rights ever since.
