8/16/2019 CONGRESSMAN BRIAN FITZPATRICK (R-PA01) ONE OF ONLY 2 REPUBLICANS TO COSPONSOR DEMOCRAT-LED ERPO RED FLAG GUN CONFISCATION LAWS https://www.newsweek.com/gun-control-bills-democrats-judiciary-committee-1454785 H.R. 1236, the Extreme Risk Protection Order Act of 2019, introduced by Rep. Salud Carbajal of California (D-CA), is commonly known as a “red flag” law, which provides grants to states that adopt laws allowing local law enforcement to remove firearms from the possession of individuals believed to be an imminent threat to themselves or others. H.R. 1236 has 159 co-sponsors: 157 Democrats & two Republicans, CONGRESSMAN BRIAN FITZPATRICK of Pennsylvania & Christopher Smith of New Jersey. Rep. CONGRESSMAN BRIAN FITZPATRICK (R-PA) ALSO VOTED WITH NANCY PELOSI, ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ & RASHIDA TLAIB TO CONDEMN PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP AS “RACIST”
8/26/2019 NYTIMES: CONGRESSMAN BRIAN FITZPATRICK (R-PA01) HAD NRA GRADE REDUCED TO “F” IN 2018… & “GREATEST LIABILITY IN HIS RACE MAY HAVE BEEN THE PERCEPTION THAT HE DIDN’T SUPPORT GUN CONTROL STRONGLY ENOUGH” https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/08/26/us/politics/nra-congress-grade.html Eight Republicans had their grades reduced, compared with four in 2016 & zero in 2010. Three House Republicans — Brian Mast of Florida, Peter King of New York & CONGRESSMAN BRIAN FITZPATRICK of Pennsylvania — now have F’s. All three were re-elected last year, & Mr. Fitzpatrick’s greatest liability in his race may have been the perception that he didn’t support gun control strongly enough.
9/5/2019 CONGRESSMAN BRIAN FITZPATRICK (R-PA01) IDENTIFIED AS REPUBLICAN WHO CAN “SHOW EVERY REPUBLICAN ON THE HILL THAT THE NRA CAN BE BEATEN” https://www.thedailybeast.com/the-odessa-shooting-&-3-ways-the-nra-loses-in-2020 This year, Mast & seven other Republicans voted with the Democrats in late February to pass a background-check law. The other seven were: Vern Buchanan of Florida; Mario Diaz-Balart, also of Florida; CONGRESSMAN BRIAN FITZPATRICK of Pennsylvania; Will Hurd of Texas; Peter King of New York; Chris Smith of New Jersey; & Fred Upton of Michigan. Hurd is retiring, & others may. Of the ones who seek re-election, will they be primaried, & will the NRA back that primary opponent to the hilt? This is an absolutely crucial question. If they can stare-down NRA-backed primaries & win, even if it’s just three or four of them, that will show every Republican on the Hill that the NRA can be beaten. & that is the exact moment when this poison will start to weaken. Rep. CONGRESSMAN BRIAN FITZPATRICK (R-PA) & Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX) ALSO VOTED WITH NANCY PELOSI, ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ & RASHIDA TLAIB TO CONDEMN PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP AS “RACIST”
9/12/2019 CONGRESSMAN BRIAN FITZPATRICK (R-PA01) JOINS 3 DEMOCRATS TO COSPONSOR H.R. 1236 “EXTREME RISK PROTECTION ORDER ACT” ALLOWING “RED FLAG” CONFISCATION OF LEGALLY OWNED FIREARMS WITHOUT TRIAL OR CONVICTION https://augustafreepress.com/extreme-risk-protection-order-act-passes-house-judiciary The Extreme Risk Protection Order (ERPO) Act of 2019, H.R. 1236, passed out of the House Judiciary Committee’s gun violence prevention markup, moving it one step closer to a vote on the House floor. The bipartisan legislation was introduced by Rep. Salud Carbajal (D-CA) & co-led by Rep. Don Beyer (D-VA), Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) & Rep. CONGRESSMAN BRIAN FITZPATRICK (R-PA). The ERPO Act, also known as a ‘red flag’ law, is a bill to temporarily keep guns out of the hands of those who are deemed a threat to themselves or others. It establishes a grant program to incentivize states to adopt extreme risk laws that would reduce gun deaths & injuries, while protecting due process rights. After the Judiciary Committee markup, the bill also includes an amendment to create a federal extreme risk protection order program. The bill will now move to the House floor for final passage.
11/13/2019 PHILLY INQUIRER: QUESTIONS RAISED ABOUT CONGRESSMAN BRIAN FITZPATRICK (R-PA01) ACCEPTING CASH AND ENDORSEMENTS FROM BILLIONAIRE DEMOCRAT PRESIDENTIAL HOPEFUL MICHAEL BLOOMBERG’S ANTI-GUN GROUPS https://www.inquirer.com/news/mike-bloomberg-2020-pat-toomey-brian-fitzpatrick-endorse-pennsylvania-politics-20191112.html Gun-control groups backed by Bloomberg endorsed U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey in 2016 and U.S. Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick in 2018, lending weight to their pitch to voters that they were independent voices who could collaborate across the aisle. In both races, the lawmakers were trying to win over moderate swing voters, and each narrowly squeaked to reelection. Bloomberg’s endorsements and cash behind Pennsylvania Republicans “will present its problems,” said John Cordisco, chairman of the Democratic Party in Bucks County, where Fitzpatrick’s district is based. “There’s going to be a core of Democrats that are going to need to understand what prompted him to do that, and it just doesn’t remain within the borders of Bucks County. Other groups throughout Pennsylvania are going to be asking those same questions.” Bloomberg wasn’t alone in praising Toomey and Fitzpatrick, two of the rare Republicans to support tougher gun laws. Former Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who was gravely wounded in a mass shooting, also backed both men, along with endorsing a number of Democrats.
