In comments that were no surprise to gun owners, Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D- NY) promised last Thursday to bring several gun control bills to the Senate floor for a vote. ust hours after Nancy Pelosi’s House had passed H.R. 8 – a universal background check bill – and H.R. 1446 – a mandatory waiting periods bill – Schumer exalted over the seeming win by Democrats.
The New York Post reported Schumer’s comments,
“In the past, when they sent it over to us last time, it went into [former Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell’s legislative graveyard. The legislative graveyard is over.”
Schumer went on to promise to bring H.R. 8 and H.R. 1446 to a vote, saying,
“H.R. 8 will be on the floor of the Senate, and we will see where everybody stands. No more hopes and prayers, thoughts and prayers. A vote is what we need, a vote, not thoughts and prayers.”
They Think Americans Are Buying This?
Schumer wasn’t the only Democrat who was working the virtue signaling and false guilt angle.
Over in the House, H.R. 8 cosponsor and House Judiciary Committee Charmian Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said, “If Republicans stand in the way, they will pay a price both morally and politically.”
The idea of a pro-abort Democrat from New York lecturing the average American citizen about morality is laughable, of course.
But the leftist millionaires stuck together, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) saying, “It challenges the conscience of Congress not to pass this legislation.”
We doubt that even the average blue collar Democrat would believe that the 80-year-old hypocrite really gives he conscience all that much attention, but then, that’s just conjecture.
Things In The Senate Will Be Tight
If gun owners want to have a chance of stopping Dianne Feinstein’s ‘Assault Weapons’ ban, H.R. 8 and H.R. 1446, then gun owners need to make it clear that EVERY single Senator who even thinks about voting for any of these gun control bills will be looking for a new job in short order!
To that end, the American Firearms Association — just the sort of ‘No Compromise’ group we can get behind — has given us this petition that will help gun owners quickly contact their Senators and tell them to VOTE NO on the radical left’s gun control!
