Late last night the House held a vote to raise the national minimum age for buying a semi-automatic rifle. Americans are free to join the military at 18 and change their gender at 5 years old. For some reason, Democrats (and many Republicans) believe they should be forced to wait until 21 to exercise their full Second Amendment rights.
The 10 Republicans voted to pass the legislation:
Bryan Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, Anthony Gonzalez from Ohio, Chris Jacobs of New York, John Katko of New York, Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, (no surprise there) Nicole Malliotakis from New York, Maria Salazar from Florida, Chris Smith from New Jersey, Michael Turner from Ohio, and Fred Upton from Michigan are all “Republicans” and all voted in support.
Democrats Jared Golden of Maine and Kirt Schrader of Oregon voted against the legislation.
Democrats framed the legislation as a response to recent mass shootings. Still, they refuse to enact basic and simple measures like locking doors to schools. If they’re not willing to take basic steps to secure schools, how can be honestly believe they are doing this out of pure motivations?
Biden doesn’t want to harden the schools. Which means we should harden the schools. https://t.co/XVo0fFgyrD

We should be doing far more than locking doors and installing security guards. We should be arming teachers and teaching students not to cower and hide but stand and fight. Some programs across the United States are working to do just that.
Worse still, gun control legislation only makes the problem of school shootings worse. In Buffalo, the shooter chose his target because of strict gun control. The psychopath saw New York’s strict gun laws as an opportunity to pounce on unarmed victims. Are we really going to make life easier for villains like him?
There are no good intentions or good outcomes to policies like this. While it’s not even close to what the Democrats really want, it’s a solid step in the wrong direction. After all, Democrats are currently pushing for a federal firearm registry. Biden has also pushed a ban on 9mm handguns. Overall, they will gaslight us by claiming “it’s not all guns,” but if you follow their rhetoric, that’s what Democrats want and it has a brutal history.
You know who confiscated their people’s firearms? Mao did. Hitler did. Stalin did. Democrats have even made efforts to claim that gun control was not responsible for the mass atrocities at their hands. Check out this hilarious Snopes ruling:
Let’s tear apart that wording. What’s true? That these mass killings were preceded by gun control and confiscation. That’s the whole claim. It’s simply true. While “gun control” is not necessarily confiscation, Democrats have made their stance clear that they do not believe civilians should own what they refer to as “weapons of war.” To think that dictators would stop at “gun control” without moving to confiscation is a laughably naive notion.
No, Democrats do want to disarm the population. Democrats don’t believe you have a right to defend yourself. They even make it clear that they don’t believe the Second Amendment is designed to protect that right. So why in the world would we allow 10 Republicans to vote for even the mildest of gun control policy? It’s time to vote them out.

Vote them out. We don’t need them. Vote people that believe in our Constitution!!!
What makes anyone think that additional laws would change the behavior of the criminals
• Why don’t we enforce the laws we already have?
• Why don’t we stop the insane “catch & release – no bail” policies?
• Why do we encourage and reward the small petty crime, which then escalates, since there are no real consequences?
• Why don’t we provide the proper security for the soft targets (schools) with retired police and military people who are well trained in the use of fire arms?
A Department of Justice report shows that only seven percent of nearly 300,000 state and federal prisoners who possessed a firearm during their crime purchased the gun from a licensed firearm dealer.
• 10.1 percent obtained the gun by purchase or trade from a retail source. 7.5 percent from a gun store, 1.6 percent from a pawn shop, 0.4 percent from a flea market, and 0.8 percent from a gun show.
• 25.3 percent got the gun by purchasing, renting or borrowing it from a family friend, or receiving it as a gift.
• 43.2 percent obtained the firearm off the street or from an underground market source
The fact that about 90 percent of firearms possessed by prisoners during the commission of crimes were not purchased or traded at legal retail sources could be used to inform the debate over gun control efforts, which often target legal gun owners and purchasers by restricting the availability of guns from legal sources or by attempting to outlaw possession of certain types of guns.
The point of the discussion is that none of the proposed Gun Control laws have any impact on the Gun Violence. They only impact the law-abiding citizens – people control.
According to a 2013 report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost every major study on the issue has found that Americans use their firearms in self-defense between 500,000 and 3 million times a year. There’s good reason to believe that many of these defensive gun uses aren’t reported to police, much less make the local or national news.
Most mass shootings have occurred in gun-free zones – why – a safe place for the shooter.
Public Gun Registration would have some serious unintended consequences
• Let the criminals know which house may not be the safe ‘target’ to break in
• Also, where one could find some guns for their criminal activities
They’re not trying to stop gun violence they’re trying to stop the law abiding citizenry of the U.S. from owning fire arms.
I saw an FBI report that said more people are killed with knives than with guns if someone wants to kill someone they’ll use whatever is available after all David killed Goliath with a stone!
There you go—–Dem’s make a good point on their stance but Rep’s have a better one, Dem’s want our guns and if they can’t have them they want our name on their lists. Should we trust Dem’s with this info? The 2nd Amendment guarantee’s our right to own. They say we shouldn’t have “Weapons of War” but when the future turmoil from Jan. 6th, any hearings on shootings, COVID, immigration, the elections, Trump haters and more, we will need to protect ourselves. I believe the Bible tells us that we are going to have WWIII but GOD will end the world before the entire human race is destroyed. I am a Vietnam vet and refused to own a gun until the Jan. 6th incident and I went out and bought a gun (legally). I never thought it would ever get to this but the hate between d’s and r’s has gotten so bad that we may be looking at anarchy, I pray we don’t but I now say that “they will have to pry the gun from my cold dead hand”. If people would fight for our politicians to get something done for all the citizens, quit lying about each other, and if our elected officials don’t do what they promised we wouldn’t be in this situation. It’s ironic that the call for votes is being advertised as just 1 seat, I get 20-50 text messages a day from my registered party and all are saying they need my money to win that 1 seat or they will lose.
LMAO if these fucking idiots think that the criminals are going to care about gun control then they live in a world with unicorns, rainbows and clouds made of cotton candy!
They already live in a world where men menstruate
and have babies.
Our latest Supreme Court justice can’t
Articulate the difference between a man and
Just an observation.
These 10 Republicans should be kicked out of office as they have gone against their oath of office. They are really Democrats.
More children are killed by abortion that any mass shooting but they say nothing about that because I think they have an interest in selling the body parts of the unborn. ABORTION IS MURDER OF THE UNBORN
