Democrats Are in Power. Why Are They Not Passing Gun Laws?

NEW YORK (Yaakov M) — The Democrats pretend that they want to stop shootings and murders. They accuse Republicans of being evil.

But Democrat policies cause thousands of murders each year. In New York, Baltimore, Chicago and LA, leftist policies have led to a surge in violence, shootings, gangs, illegal aliens, drunk drivers, and drugs.

Most of the victims of gun violence, including thousands of innocent kids, are blacks and other minorities.

All of this exposes that their rhetoric about mass shootings is phony and hypocritical. They use these tragedies to get soundbites, but they don’t really want to prevent shootings.

In addition, Democrats have controlled the White House and Congress for 17 months, yet they have not voted on a single gun control bill. What are they waiting for?

(Some will tell you it’s because they don’t have 60 votes in the Senate. However that is a bogus excuse. Mitch McConnell, Pat Toomey, John Thune, and John Cornyn have all said they would be willing to work with Democrats on a gun control bill.

Democrats passed a infrastructure bill, a huge spending package, and a $40 Billion for Ukraine. They also voted on an abortion bill. Biden and Schumer have not even attempted to get 10 Republicans onboard gun control.

Many Republican Senators take little money from the NRA. Jared Kushner once passed a bipartisan prison reform bill, which many conservatives opposed, by cutting deals.

The Democrats have no excuse. They may not succeed, but they’ve been so busy sending money to Ukraine, they have not even tried to pass gun control.)

When Trump was president, they blamed him for El Paso, Parkland, and Las Vegas. They promised that if they were in control, they would pass gun laws. Now that they are in control, they have been exposed as hypocrites.

Democrats are the party of crime and anarchy. Republicans are the party of law and order.

If Democrats care about saving kids’ lives or preventing shootings, why do they support policies that directly lead to thousands of shootings each year? Why have they defunded the police in so many cities? Why do they support BLM?

In addition, their “common sense” gun regulations, such as background checks (which I support) would probably not prevent mass shootings.

I support tougher gun laws, especially if it would prevent these tragedies. However we also need to improve law enforcement, and make schools safer.

Democrats don’t seem to want to discuss these ideas. They take advantage of crises and politicize tragedy to advance their radical agenda.

In fact, Chuck Schumer just blocked a vote on a bill that would help make schools more secure. That is inexcusable hypocrisy.

In my latest podcast episode, I break down the Democrat response to the tragic, heartbreaking, horrific shooting in Uvalde.

very good question and the answer is because DemocRATS don’t care about Americans – they only care about ILLEGAL immigrants – giving them jobs, citizenship, food, shelter and even BABY FORMULA.

The right to possess arms is a fundamental right protected by the Second Amendment. Besides, the democrats need guns to at least keep shooting themselves in the feet.

In Australia and several other countries, where it is gun-free for citizens, the police pushed people around a lot more when attempting to institute and enforce the false ‘covid narrative’, and c19 shot resisters and protesters were arrogantly subdued because of this.

The universal background checks that you support are a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
They sound reasonable, and sensible, and even like a good idea. After all who wouldn’t want every gun purchase to be subject to such a check?
The problem is you cannot implement universal background checks without also implementing universal gun registration. That is anathema to every gun owner and should be the same to every clear thinking American citizen.
The 20th century saw over 100 million civilians murdered by their own governments. Every one of those governments instituted gun registration allowing for subsequent gun confiscation paving the way to the massacres.
There is a reason the founding fathers wanted free and unfettered access to firearms guaranteed for the citizens of the new country.
They were a very smart group of people.

This writers argument is solely planted in the idea that Dems can get 10 GOP votes for gun control, and they just don’t want to. And he uses bipartisan bills as proof that Dems could get GOP on guns if they wish.

Someone is smoking aomething.

But Democrat policies cause thousands of murders each year.

How odd, I would have put the blame on the criminals.
