What you are about to read is why gun rights advocates refuse to cave to leftists on guns. Donald Trump was weak this week when it came to gun control (see WATCH: Trump Discusses Ban on AR-15s and Confiscation. Without Due Process… and Senator Ben Sasse Savages President Trump’s Due Process Comments). He basically listened to Democrats rattle off their anti-gun fan fiction. Then he said #MeToo. If you deny that, your #MAGA underwear might be a little too tight.
Trump caved. So Chuck Schumer can’t introduce a gun control bill fast enough. Per the Washington Examiner:
Senate Democrats said they will introduce a gun control bill that would expand background checks, ban certain weapons, and give the courts the power to temporarily take guns away from people who are deemed to be a threat to themselves or others, after President Trump offered support for these goals in a White House discussion Wednesday.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said the only way to advance the measure in the GOP-led Senate is with the endorsement and help from President Trump. He described a scenario in which the Senate could pass Schumer’s proposal with mostly Democratic support and a few Republicans encouraged by Trump.
“The NRA has had the Republican Party in a headlock for decades,” Schumer said. “Only the president — this president — will have the power to overcome their strength and get his Republican allies on Capitol Hill to move to a place that embraces common sense gun safety policies.”
Yes, MAGA-Americans. I know Trump started to walk back what he said on Twitter. Kind of. He may have even launched a trade war so people would talk about something else. We’ll deal with THAT mess later. Though it would be nice if a Republican president, such as we supposedly have, wouldn’t need his messes cleaned up. Just saying.
But if the president understood what a Constitution was, Democrats wouldn’t be this emboldened in the first place. They saw a weakness. They’re exploiting that weakness. Hence we continue to pound Trump for his egregious misstep in hopes of avoiding more egregious missteps for the next two years. Lord help us.
Let’s talk guns:
