In light of recent shootings, Democrats have rushed to push a radical gun control agenda. Other measures that would keep Americans safe they ignore—knowing that they’d work. Instead, Democrats from all corners demand we restrict the Second Amendment, further depriving citizens of the means to defend themselves.
One of their top goals, set by Joe Biden himself, is to ban “assault weapons.” This term, which does not properly describe any type of firearm, broadly applies to semi-automatic rifles like the AR-15. Democrats are eager to rip these firearms out of law-abiding citizens’ hands for no reason whatsoever.
But a recent expert just broke the bad news to Nancy Pelosi.
Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., sponsored the guns measure, which would ban a plethora of semi-automatic rifles with detachable magazines and/or select external features.
More than six House Democrats, however, remain uncommitted to such a ban, delaying or nixing its passage…
Others have openly opposed the measure, including Reps. Kurt Schrader, Oregon; Henry Cuellar, Texas; and Jared Golden, Maine.
“This is a bill that destroyed the Democrats in ‘94. I guess, do we really have a death wish list as Democrats?” said Schrader, per Politico. [Source: Just the News]
Democrats need all but four Democrats to vote yes on a weapons ban in order for it to pass in the House. But, as it stands right now, six House Democrats refuse to support it. For some, they are openly opposing it.
With the midterms fast approaching, the few moderates left in the party are terrified. Joe Biden’s horrible performance, along with Pelosi and Schumer, have all but doomed them. Pushing a radical ban on firearms millions of Americans own would be the death knell.
Rep. Schrader even warned that the “assault weapons” ban of the 90s doomed Democrats in the House. Soon after they passed that bill, Republicans took over.
Far-left progressives have been dragging the party down with one bad idea after another. Democrats lost seats in 2020 and stand to lose enough this year to lose the majority. Perhaps, if these six reject a weapons ban, they stand a better chance of surviving.
That might be the case. But chances are Pelosi will push for this legislature and even try to bend the arms of enough Democrats to vote for it.
Either case, it does not have much of a chance in the Senate. But Americans will see Democrats rushing to take away yet another right protected by the Constitution.
How do you think they’ll vote then?
