  • Guess Who Voted Down The New Senate Gun Control Bills?

    DEMOCRATS!

    That’s right. The Senate killed all four of the new gun control measures brought forth since the Orlando shooting.

    The shocking part is that it was the Democrats who killed them. What a strange world we live in.

    After screaming for years for more gun control the Democrats refused to take it when the Republicans offered it up.

    From The Blazes’ Stu Burguiere:

    You probably heard that the Republican Senate blocked four gun control bills in the wake of Orlando.

    Simple, common sense measures, rejected.

    For example, one measure that would allow the government to delay firearm purchases to terror suspects for three days to give time to present the evidence to a judge for a final ruling.

    Common sense.*

    It needed 60 votes, and only received 53, leaving 47 NO votes with blood on their hands. By, the way, here is the party of each of those Senators:

    3 of the 47 NO votes were from Democrats.

    Look at the vote for yourself, and think of what incredible liars these people are.

    Elizabeth Warren accused Republicans of wanting to sell guns to ISIS, and then voted against the measure I just described.

    Democrats could have had gun control. They voted against it to maintain it as a campaign issue.

    The truth is that it’s all politics to the Democrats. It’s all an angle, a strategy. None of it really has people’s interests at heart. The four gun bills basically gave the Dems what they’ve always wanted. Two bills were authored by Democrats and two were authored by Republicans.

    The Republicans had already agreed to the Democrats demands, but the Democrats tossed it away.

    Why?

    Pure politics. They did it to be in a stronger position going into the elections.

    From The Federalist:

    Rather than agree to the incremental gun control measures Republicans proposed, the Democrats chose to pass no gun control legislation at all. At some point after loudly demanding legislation for more than a week, Senate Democrats decided it would be better for their reelection prospects that no gun control bills pass the Senate during the election season. Their decision was hypocritical, unprincipled, and pure politics.

    Republicans were willing to link the terrorism watch list to a gun sales ban, as Democrats have demanded. The price of agreement was due-process protections for Americans placed on the list. But apparently due process is too much for the Democrats. They would rather have no sales ban than a sales ban that comports with the Fifth Amendment. The Democrats similarly rejected an incremental expansion of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. Apparently, some gun control is not worth sharing credit with the Republicans.
