The House voted for the so-called Violence Against Women Act which NRA opposed due to it’s gun control provisions.
Tom Reed screwed us over:
“… Rep. Tom Reed (R-N.Y.), who ultimately did vote for the bill, said he opposed the “red flag” gun control provisions that were added but supported other expansions, such as transgender protections. “To me, it was the gun issue that they were really playing politics with,” Reed told reporters this week. “We’re talking about a constitutional freedom, and they’re going down a slippery slope of not having that due process right protected.” …”
Who exactly is playing politics here? Reed. He says he opposed the gun control provisions, but ends up voting for the bill with those provisions in it.
