Congress Restores School Shooting Sports in Humiliating Defeat for Biden

Joe Biden signed a bill called the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act in law last September. The zealots at the US Department of Education immediately interpreted the law to mean that schools with archery, hunting, or shooting sports programs could not receive federal funds. In a bit of good news for students across America, Congress just overturned that law in one of Joe Biden’s most humiliating defeats to date.

Schools across the country were forced to cancel their archery, hunting, and gun safety sports rather than lose federal funding. This was a shock to almost every single Member of Congress who voted for the bill, which was supposed to increase mental health funding for schools and various other things.

The law was sold as a way to keep communities safer, and yet Joe Biden’s Dept. of Education used it to eliminate safety training with firearms for tens of thousands of young people across the country.

Rep. Mark Green (R-TN) introduced the Protecting Hunting and Heritage Act to counter the Biden regime’s wild misinterpretation of the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act. The new bill was intended to restore federal funds for all archery, hunting, and shooting sports programs that Biden had eliminated.

The passage of the Protecting Hunting and Heritage Act was far more bipartisan than the other bill that had “bipartisan” in its name. The House voted 424-1 to pass the new legislation, and the Senate voted unanimously in favor of it.

As Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ) noted, the Protecting Hunting and Heritage Act was not about passing a new law. It was about forcing the Biden regime to follow the law as Congress had originally intended.

This was by far the most crushing defeat of any of Joe Biden’s signature legislation to date.
