Maxwell Frost to speak to House Armed Services Committee on Gun Control

Maxwell Frost, a 25-Year-Old Gun Control Activist, Heads to Congress to Speak on the Importance of “Gun Control”

Maxwell Frost, a self-proclaimed “progressive” gun safety zealot, will speak to the House Armed Services Committee on the importance of “gun control” on June 1, in an effort to sway Congress on some gun-control legislation.

Frost told the media that he’ll be seeking to educate the members on the importance of gun control, but he made it clear that he doesn’t want to take away gun rights when it comes to firearms. Frost, who will be seeking to speak to the House Armed Services Committee (the main committee that’s been pushing gun control, with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan among its members) as well as the House Financial Services Committee, says, “They need to understand the gun ownership that’s legal in the United States is the most powerful weapon to protect civil rights, and that is not under assault.”

It will be interesting to see how the two committees he’ll be speaking to on gun control, Armed Services and Financial Services are going to react his comments.

Meanwhile, a gun-rights group has organized for him to stop at the Capital building in Washington for an event on gun control. That event is scheduled for June 1, but as of the time of this posting, only a handful of people have received it, and there are no details as to when the event will be.

Congress is likely to get its hearing on gun control, and that will likely be in June — this coming week. There will be a hearing on “gun violence prevention” this Wednesday, June 15, before the House Financial Services Committee. The House Armed Services Committee will hold a hearing on the same issue on June 16.

Congress could vote on gun-control legislation to prevent shootings from becoming more common, but gun rights activists and even some Democrats have warned against it, stating that it could have unintended consequences. We’ll be watching how this plays out to see if the Senate steps up and is able to act, as well.
