As they do every time there is an increase in shootings, Democrats are attempting a massive gun confiscation.
The Texas elementary school massacre in Uvalde was the impetus for the most recent anti-gun movement. It disturbed the conscience that a person could indiscriminately murder little children.
However, the 18-year-old shooter was mad. The local police also failed miserably to enter the classroom where he was hiding.
Despite this, Democrats want to prohibit firearms. They have always had. Because only a well-armed citizenry can oppose tyranny, and tyranny is what socialist Democrats seek to achieve.
The Democrats desire ultimate control over American individuals. Total. Without any resistance.
The Second Amendment is not about hunting or home protection; rather, it is about opposing tyranny. We know from history how quickly a people can lose their freedoms and become subject to the whims of rulers if they are disarmed.
This is why we need firearms that give us a fighting chance against any future dictatorships.
Currently, some Republicans are cooperating with Democrats to disarm Americans.
Twenty senators formed a bipartisan gun safety proposal on Sunday, signifying a significant breakthrough in the campaign to prevent mass shootings (or grab firearms) in the wake of consecutive incidents.
Sunday morning’s declaration by 10 senators from each party publicly approved the agreement. Senator Chuck Schumer supported the bill and pledged to “put this bill on the floor as soon as possible.” The plan, according to Biden, “would be the most significant gun safety legislation to pass Congress in decades.” He then stated that both chambers of Congress should pass it immediately.
The emerging package is anchored around extra scrutiny for gun buyers under the age of 21, grants to states to implement so-called red flag laws and new spending on mental health treatment and school security. While translating the agreement into legislation will take time, the large group of supportive senators shows that the package could gain 60 votes on the Senate floor before heading to the House.
“Our plan saves lives while also protecting the constitutional rights of law-abiding Americans. We look forward to earning broad, bipartisan support and passing our commonsense proposal into law,” the 20 senators said in their statement.

Sens. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), John Cornyn (R-Texas), Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) and Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) are the lead negotiators on the proposal. The most significant piece of the proposal would subject gun buyers 21 and younger to scrutiny of their criminal and mental health records as juveniles. It’s proved tricky to write because each state has different laws governing juvenile records.
A broader bipartisan group has held its own regular meetings on guns over the past three weeks since the elementary school shooting in Uvalde, Texas. And with Democrats controlling only 50 Senate seats, the approval of 10 Republicans is critical to moving forward. Read more…
