"This bill is imperative to block the DOJ's backdoor gun registration scheme," Schweikert said. "Law-abiding Americans should not have to sacrifice privacy to exercise Second Amendment rights nor should we in the southwest be discriminated against or treated differently than any other American."

"The government has no business tracking the sale of rifles to law-abiding citizens," Amash added. "Americans should not be put on a watch list simply for exercising their constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms."
