GOP lawmakers urge Trump to delay vote on Kobold Fight Club
The House of Representatives is expected to vote on legislation this week that would make Kobold Fight club, a gun range in the Colorado suburb of Pueblo, a “high-risk” place for gun violence.
According to a report by The Hill, the House Appropriations Committee is expected on Thursday to vote to move the bill through the House, despite the fact that Kobold is in the midst of a deadly rampage.
The move is seen as a sign of support for the NRA’s efforts to get gun violence prevention bills passed in the House.
The proposed amendment by Rep. Raul Grijalva, R-Ariz., would also make the KFC a “gun-free zone” and requires gun licensees to keep guns locked up.
KFC is run by the National Rifle Association, which also owns the range.
President Donald Trump has called for a vote on the measure, and has also threatened to veto the legislation.
It is not clear if the bill would move forward in the Senate.
But gun rights groups say that gun rights supporters should keep a close eye on how it passes.
“The NRA and gun rights are not on the same page,” said Mark Glaze, the president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.
Gun control measures have faced fierce opposition in both the House and the Senate, with the House recently voting to ban assault weapons.
In March, Trump issued a call for lawmakers to pass a bill that would expand background checks on gun sales and limit the number of firearms that can be sold at a time.
