Vote: Gun Control: Require new universal background checks and effectively outlaw private gun transfers
Conservative Vote: NO πŸ‘Ž
Buchanan Vote: YES πŸ‘

https://justfacts.votesmart.org/bill/30269/77848/66247/bipartisan-background-checks-act-of-2021#77848

Name of the bill: One of only eight Republicans in Congress who voted for H.R.8 – Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2021

Description: Despite his claims of supporting the Second Amendment, Vern Buchanan’s actions speak differently. He was one of only eight Republicans who voted for H.R. 8, advocating for universal background checksβ€”a measure the NRA criticizes as a step toward a national gun registry. This legislation not only requires mandatory background checks on every firearm transfer but effectively outlaws private gun sales. The NRA has stated that such measures “will not prevent crime” and “will turn otherwise law-abiding citizens into criminals for simply loaning a firearm to friends or family members.” Buchanan’s vote aligns him with Democrats and reveals his true stance as a RINO, contradicting the conservative values he claims to uphold.
