Democrats just pushed through the House an absolutely insane gun control bill.
Obviously, with a Republican Senate and a Trump President, they can’t make this into law.
But this is exactly what you’re going to get as soon as Trump’s out, assuming there is no way to transfer power to another Republican (there probably is not).
The Democratic-controlled House on Wednesday approved a measure requiring federal background checks for all firearms sales and transfers, the first major gun control legislation considered by Congress in nearly 25 years. Democrats called the 240-190 vote a major step to end the gun lobby’s grip on Washington and begin to address an epidemic of gun violence, including 17 people who were killed at a Florida high school last year.
The bill is the first of two that Democrats are bringing to the House floor this week as part of an effort to tighten gun laws following eight years of Republican control. The other bill would extend the review period for background checks from three to 10 days.
Both bills face dim prospects in the Republican-controlled Senate and veto threats from President Trump, who said they would impose unreasonable requirements on gun owners.
The White House said in a veto message that the background-checks bill could block someone from borrowing a firearm for self-defense or allowing a neighbor to take care of a gun while traveling.
Democrats called those arguments misleading and said gun owners have a responsibility to ensure firearms are properly handled. The bill includes exceptions allowing temporary transfers to prevent imminent harm or for use at a target range. The long-delayed bill would merely close loopholes to ensure that background checks are extended to private and online sales that often go undetected, Democrats said.
“People who are felons or are dangerously mentally ill shouldn’t have guns,” regardless of whether they buy them from a federally licensed dealer or their next-door neighbor, said Democratic Rep. Mike Thompson of California, a key sponsor who has pushed for expanded background checks since the 2012 killing of 20 elementary school students in Newtown, Connecticut.
“For six-and-a-half years, we had no cooperation from the past majority” in the House, Thompson said. “We couldn’t get a hearing on the bill. We couldn’t get a vote. Today, we’re here to tell you it’s a new day. With this (Democratic) majority, we have made a commitment to address the issue of gun violence.”
To demonstrate their support for the bill, Thompson and other Democrats wore orange ties, while others wore orange scarves, the color used by the movement against gun violence.
Rep. Madeleine Dean of Pennsylvania said she hopes the symbolism will soon become obsolete.
“I long for the day when orange scarves are a fashion statement, not a cry for help,” said Dean, who was wearing a bright orange scarf.
This is sickening.
Full background checks for every gun sale in the entire country.
And it is just a taste of what awaits you.
When the Democrats take over, this is going to be hell on earth. They will be passing hate speech laws. They will be rounding up political dissidents. And they will be using spying technology to catch political dissidents who have remained anonymous.
Remember that every time you get angry at Trump, or see some right-winger talking about how he’s going to vote Democrat because “worse is better.”
Just imagine being thrown in prison after a show trial. Imagine your guns being stripped from you because you posted something mean about the Jews on Facebook. Imagine your children being taken from you by the state because you said you don’t think trannies are real women, and the state then pumping them full of tranny hormones as revenge on you.
That is what people who say Trump should be taken out of office because he didn’t build the wall are demanding.
I don’t know what else to tell you.
I’m not happy about Trump either, in general.
But the hell that is going to come down on all of us if he loses is simply immeasurable.
You NEED to be stocking up on guns from the gun show NOW.
Because you aren’t going to get another chance.
