The Senate appears ready to pass sweeping gun control laws with the help of several turncoat Republicans who have agreed to help Democrats come after your gun rights!
This evening Republican Senator John Cornyn said he had enough Republicans promising to vote for the Senate’s latest gun control bill and expected to push it through in the next 24 hours.
Among the many disturbing attacks on the second amendment in the bill, the legislation would encourage Backdoor Universal Background Checks by redefining many private sellers as gun dealers, financially incentivize states to enact unconstitutional “red-flag” laws, and would allow for so-called “enhanced background checks,” which are arbitrary delays in transferring firearms to adults not yet 21 years old.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said his chamber would begin debating the measure immediately and move to the final passage “as quickly as possible.”
Chinese-owned traitor Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell voiced his support, calling it “a commonsense package of popular step.”
“I support the bill text that Senator Cornyn and our colleagues have produced,” Senate Minority Leader McConnell said in a statement. “For years, the far left falsely claimed that Congress could only address the terrible issue of mass murders by trampling on law-abiding Americans’ constitutional rights. This bill proves that false. Our colleagues have put together a commonsense package of popular steps that will help make these horrifying incidents less likely while fully upholding the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.”
Here are the 14 Republicans who voted with New York’s Chuck Schumer last night to allow the Senate to begin debating this anti-gun bill:
- Blunt (MO)
- Burr (NC)
- Capito (WV)
- Cassidy (LA)
- Collins (ME)
- Cornyn (TX)
- Ernst (IA)
- Graham (SC)
- McConnell (KY)
- Murkowski (AK)
- Portman (OH)
- Romney (UT)
- Tillis (NC)
- Young (IN)
- NOTE: Toomey (PA) missed the vote but said he supports it
Erich Pratt, GOA’s Senior Vice President, issued the following statement:
“Once again, so-called ‘conservative’ Senators are making clear they believe that the rights of American citizens can be compromised away. Let me be clear, they have NO AUTHORITY to compromise with our rights, and we will not tolerate legislators who are willing to turn gun owners into second-class citizens. GOA fully opposes this unconstitutional legislation and will continue to encourage our millions of members to make their voices heard to their elected officials on this bill.”
Republicans Yet Again Betray Gun Owners
As we wrote about in our article showing the history of Anti-Gun Republicans and how the Republican Party has constantly betrayed gun owners, these people are two sides of the same coin — They all hate giving you your freedoms!
From Nixon to Trump, almost every significant piece of gun control legislation has been pushed through with the help of Republicans!
