Maxwell Frost, a 25-Year-Old Gun Control Activist, Heads to Congress Today to Demand That Congress Pass the M2A2 Gun Control Act
March is National Gun Control Month. This year it’s happening right before America’s most controversial government spending bill, the continuing resolution to keep the government funded until April 15. (Some of you may be looking at the title of this post, “M2A2”, and thinking, That’s a mouthful and I’ve heard of “M2A” before. Well, in this case it’s “M2A2” because there are only two types of guns, military and arms, and they’re spelled M for military and 2 for arm.)
Maxwell Frost, a 25-year-old gun control activist, is taking his fight to Congress for the M2A2 Gun Control Act. If that sounds like a big deal to you and you didn’t know that an activist was pushing for gun control, it’s because the government spends so much time pushing for gun control that you actually don’t need to know all the arguments to understand that an attack on gun rights is an attack on liberty—a fundamental principle of freedom.
So, why does Maxwell Frost, a 25-year-old member of the NRA, want to take his fight to Congress for the M2A2 Gun Control Act (or M2A2), one of the most hated bills in Washington today? The reason is simple and it’s the same reason that every single anti-gun control activist that has ever come to Congress has had:
Because it is the law of the land. The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), passed by Congress and signed into law by President Bush last year (signed into law on December 17, 2011), was written at the behest of the anti-gun control lobby. When a pro-gun person or group comes to Congress and says, “Hey guys, I was wrong about the NAA,” they’re just lying.
The truth is that the NAA, passed by Congress with overwhelming majorities in both houses, was written in a way that allows the government to circumvent our Second Amendment rights with absolutely zero oversight. It’s that simple. This is the fundamental reason for the NDAA.
The legislation is so badly written that it will virtually guarantee that gun owners will still have full Second Amendment rights, even if they’re not allowed to purchase any new guns. It
