A bigger, more extensive, and more intrusive government is not the answer. Just look at what is being funded by this bill – including communist front groups shilling for the Democrat Party.
Buried under the results of disastrous domestic and foreign policies and lacking any tangible accomplishments heading into the mid-term election cycle, fourteen GOP Senators rushed to snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory by giving the progressive communist democrats not only a “win” on gun control, but a “bi-partisan” win demonstrating their leadership in a matter of national importance.
The culprits are Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Todd Young (R-IN), John Cornyn (R-TX), Thom Tillis (R-NC), Richard Burr (R-NC), Susan Collins (R-ME), Mitt Romney (R-UT), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Rob Portman (R-OH), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO). All are chameleons who will do or say anything to preserve their perks, privileges, and purloined profits. These corrupt douchebags do not represent their respective constituencies, they represent themselves!
And, if that wasn’t enough, we find Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) hard at work to complete the destruction of the GOP’s almost-guaranteed election superiority…
Sen. John Cornyn Hints at Amnesty, Pro-Migration Deal with Democrats
Texas GOP Sen. John Cornyn suggested Tuesday evening he would push through an immigration bill with amnesty advocate Sen. Alex Padilla (D-CA).
The suggestion came as Cornyn congratulated Republicans and Democrats as they voted for a bill to curb gun violence.
Now, he is back-pedaling which usually signals the truth of his original comments…
GOP gun bill negotiator John Cornyn says he was joking when he said he would move on to immigration reform now that gun bill is in hand
- John Cornyn is walking back his comment saying he will work an immigration deal after negotiating with Democrats on gun reform legislation
- The bipartisan bill passed the Senate on Tuesday evening
- On the floor of the Senate, Cornyn was overheard saying to a Democratic senator: 'First guns, now it's immigration'
- 'The Democrats and their allies in the media really can't take a joke,' Cornyn told conservative outlet Breitbart in Wednesday. 'There's no secret amnesty bill'
- Cornyn was booed at the Texas annual Republican Party convention last Friday for his work negotiating a gun legislation bill with Democrats <Source>
Like all legislation, the devil is in the details, the "do something" gun control bill is a red flag danger for law-abiding American citizens…
About those red flag laws that can be used to remove guns from mentally-ill, violent individuals, or domestic violence suspects – while the legislators promise to protect an American’s right to due process and protection under the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments, the law is vague. While it promises that you have a “right to an attorney,” no public defender is available-- and you will have to pay for your own attorney – spending hundreds or thousands of dollars for representation. An apparent attempt to make gun ownership unavailable to the poor, women, and minorities that need a force multiplier to stave off injury or death.
Likewise, there is no penalty for those who improperly or maliciously deprive you of your God-given right to self-defense and your Second Amendment right to own and bear arms. One can easily imagine an evildoer disarming his intended victim by filing an anonymous complaint or an activist teacher filing against a student’s parents.
For juveniles, enhanced background checks would open up juvenile records and possibly prevent further career-killing expungements of criminal records.
The legislation defines “domestic partners” and excludes boyfriends and girlfriends.
The legislation imposes additional burdens on those wishing to sell their gun collections by demanding a federal firearms license before the sale if a profit is involved.
Fifteen years for ammunition smuggling? Imagine leaving a few rounds accidentally in your travel case. Boom -- you are a felon.
But, most importantly, the legislation does nothing to curtail criminals, crazies, and terrorists who neither respect nor follow the law. Criminals and terrorists do not legally purchase guns at gun stores. Mentally ill individuals will have their mental health status flagged, which could be used by landlords, employers, insurers, schools, and others.
Legislation rarely solves problems; otherwise, the inner cities would not be awash with blood.
It is time that Republicans held their party to stricter standards and quit providing aid and comfort to our enemies, both foreign and domestic.
It’s not about gun control, it’s about crime control.
We are so screwed.
