Kirsters Baish| The left has this obsession with pretending they know what they’re talking about when it comes to firearms. The fact of the matter is that if they were gun experts, they wouldn’t need to resort to making up statistics. They can’t win the argument based on truth or they have to resort to devious tactics such as making things up and exploiting fear and ignorance.
We’re all aware of the gun control rallies that have been taking place around the country. We have heard Hollywood celebrities complain that Congress must act now, but we aren’t really clear on exactly they want Congress to do. In most mass shooting cases that we’ve seen, no gun control law could have stopped it from happening. Not to mention that killing people has been against the law since the beginning of time.
This past Tuesday, at least part of Congress did take it upon themselves to act, and what they did wasn’t what anyone expected.
The Daily Caller reported:
In the wake of the “March For Our Lives” rally Saturday, and with no legislative appetite for more gun control laws, Democrats in both the House and Senate have introduced a bill requiring background checks for purchasing bullets.
“You do not have the right to bear bullets,” said Congresswoman and former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz at a press conference Monday announcing the introduction of a bill that would require instant background checks to purchase ammunition.
The Ammunition Background Check Act was introduced by Wasserman Schultz in the House and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) in the Senate. Like its name implies, it would require anyone looking to buy bullets to be subjected to background checks, similar to the one required to purchase a firearm in the first place.
That doesn’t seem like much of a solution if you ask me.
The Sun Senteniel reported that the proposal wouldn’t have stopped any mass shootings by itself. Wasserman Schultz said that the legislation already has 36 co-sponsors. None of those co-sponsors are Republicans. The far-left Democrat totally dismissed the argument. She claimed that “common sense gun safety laws” would step on the Second Amendment right which enumerates American’s God given right to bear arms and defend themselves.
Clinton Inc. henchman, Debbie Wassewrman Schutlz, claimed during a news conference at the Pembroke Pines Police Department, “You do not have the right to bear bullets.” She attended the conference with political leaders and a police representative as well as teachers and students who survived the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
The whole thing is just ridiculous. With somewhere around 12 billion rounds of ammo in our country, the left thinks that the government can come and seize it all successfully? That worked so well with drugs like heroin and methamphetamine. All while taking away the rights of all Americans.
This legislation has about zero chance of making it past a Republican-conrolled Congress. Things could change, however, if the GOP does badly in the midterm elections, which is pretty unlikely. Only time will tell. Remember, only you can prevent tyranny … VOTE.
