Rep. Jim Jordan will investigate the FBI for secretly pressuring Americans to waive their gun rights should the GOP take back the House, the Ohio Republican told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
The fact that the FBI provided forms to people that relinquished their rights to own, buy or even use firearms underscores a “pattern” in the Bureau that is “frightening,” said Jordan, revealing in a Monday interview he will probe the FBI if Republicans secure a November House majority.

“All we can do is get facts and the truth, so the American people know exactly what’s going on,” said Jordan. “That’s what we will attempt to do because that’s part of our constitutional responsibility. To do the oversight and the investigation that you need to do so the country gets the facts.”
There are at least 15 Americans between 2016 and 2019 that signed the secret FBI forms, the DCNF first reported Sept. 6. The forms ask signatories to declare themselves as either a “danger” to themselves or others or lacking “mental capacity adequately to contract or manage” their lives and specify signatories will be permanently registered with the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).
