A so-called bipartisan group of far-left Democrats, liberal Democrats and RINOs agreed to a package of “common sense” gun control measures. It’s a mistake.
Never underestimate Republicans’ ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. It’s as if Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is throwing a lifeline to Democrats again.
🚨NEWS: We have a deal. Today a bipartisan group of 20 Senators (10 D and 10 R) is announcing a breakthrough agreement on gun violence – the first in 30 years – that will save lives.
I think you’ll be surprised at the scope of our framework.
1/ Here’s what it includes:

The RINOs on the team of 20 included Pat Toomey (PA), Susan Collins (ME), Lindsey Graham (SC), Thom Tillis (NC), and Bill Cassidy (LA) under the leadership of McConnell toady John Cornyn (TX).
The laws they are passing will not stop the next mass shooting. When the next one takes place, they will double down again and pass more laws that also won’t work. They don’t even follow the ones we have. These politicians are taking us down the path to the surrender of our 2nd Amendment.
THE RULES WE DON’T WANT
There will be massive grants to push states to pass Red Flag laws. These laws are violations of American civil rights, canceling out due process and giving rights over to neighbors, relatives, and partners, sometimes with dishonorable motives. It opens the door to anti-gun activists, who will weaponize it.
Billions will be spent on mental health and school safety. Funds will go to community mental health clinics, undoubtedly under the control of confused multi-genders who were churned out from the WOKE social work programs. They can give addicts free crackpipes for the drugs.
They will ban convicted domestic abusers from buying a gun, and open the door to vengeful partners.
There will be a federal law against gun trafficking and straw purchasing.
Enhanced background checks for buyers under age 21 is included.
“Clarification” of laws regarding who needs to register as a licensed gun dealer. You can imagine what they plan to do with that.
This is just the framework. Legislation isn’t drawn up yet.
Politicians feel they are doing something and they are – all bad. They’ve opened several doors here, including one to nationalize gun laws.
Every new power big government gets brings the people closer to losing all control.
More gun laws to go along with the ones that are not enforced already. To prevent gun violence that happens from actions of people the enforcers mostly already knew about but did nothing to defuse. To prevent mass shootings that were not prevalent 40 year ago.
You’re looking in the wrong closet for answers.
Ya might wanna start looking into the increased drug, both illegal and prescribed, use since the late 60’s, along with the destruction of a moral compass and the increase of a more “permissive” society, where you are not accountable for your actions.
Prior to the late 60’s there were fewer gun violence incidences, even though the laws were less strict and guns were commonly available. Now there is more gun violence even though guns are harder to obtain and laws more strict. WHY? The fickle finger keeps pointing in one direction, and it damn sure ain’t the lawful gun owners, the manufacturer, or the guns themselves.
It will be interesting to see how SCOTUS rules on 2nd Amendment cases before them now. I suspect not stopping protesting in front of their homes will ensure our 2nd Amendment Rights since the Justices will realize the only way to set a corrupt Government straight will involve 2nd Amendment Rights.
