Gun owners nationwide oppose the nomination of Xavier Becerra to lead the Department of Health and Human Services.
- the Standard Capacity Magazine Ban in California’s Duncan v. Becerra calling the measure “sensible and constitutional,”
- a so-called “Assault Weapon” Registration mandate in Miller v. Becerra,
- a handgun ban also known as the so-called Unsafe Handgun Act in a case known as Pena v. Horan, and
- a failed Ammunition Background Check System even though it had a false positive denial rate of over 97 percent at the time in a case labeled Rhode v. Becerra.
If confirmed, Xavier Becerra will surely use the 80,000 HHS employees and $1.3 budget to circumvent the Dickey Amendment to advocate and promote gun control using a loophole created recently by the passage of the anti-gun Fix NICS legislation.
For all of these reasons, I believe that Xavier Becerra is also unfit to serve as our nation’s Secretary of Health and Human Services.
I also oppose the anti-gun Judge Merrick Garland to lead the Department of Justice as Attorney General.
