The Speaker of the House is up to her old dirty tricks again.
Nancy Pelosi is a seasoned politician who will stop at nothing to cram through her liberal agenda.
And now she just made one bold gun control threat to congressional Republicans.
Congress is back in session, which means Democrats are back in the lab, cooking up terrible ideas that they’ve been trying to push for decades.
Gun control is at or near the top of the list.
For years, Democrats have preached that they simply want “common sense” gun laws, but they always fail to articulate what that would mean, or they call for laws that are already on the books and being disobeyed by violent criminals.
However, Democrats have lately taken a new tack.
They’re straight-out calling for what they want, which is gun confiscation and a national registry.
With this new stance on gun control, Nancy Pelosi’s threat to GOP congressmen is even more chilling.
During a press conference, Pelosi said, “Some of the gun violence prevention groups have upped the ante even further to say that if this bill is not passed, Mitch McConnell and Republicans in the Senate and the president will have hell to pay.”
“Hell to pay” likely be a gun control push like the country has never seen before.
After the tragic school shooting in Parkland, Florida, liberal politicians and activists used kids who survived the rampage as cudgel against Republicans and other Americans in favor of gun rights.
The entire movement was astroturfed; the kids were the face of the push and the shield against criticism while the gun control puppets pulled the strings from behind the scenes.
Some of the initiatives Democrats will be pushing hard are the “Keep Americans Safe Act,” the “Extreme Risk Protection Orders Act of 2019,” and the “Disarm Hate Act.”
Each of these are deeply flawed, but the Democrats believe they will magically end gun violence.
They don’t address the problem that criminals do not follow the law.
The “Keep Americans Safe Act” is a ban on magazines over 10 rounds.
This is great news for home invaders and criminals who will simply use modified magazines to increase capacity.
Also, reloading isn’t a big issue for mass shooters when they’re preying on “gun free” zones.
The “Extreme Risk Protection Orders Act of 2019” is a “red flag” law that would temporarily suspend gun rights.
This could easily be used as a Trojan horse to seize guns from law-abiding citizens on dubious grounds.
Barack Obama tried to implement a similar policy, and even the left-leaning ACLU thought it was unconstitutional.
The “Disarm Hate Act” would revoke gun rights from anyone convicted of a misdemeanor hate crime.
This is complete nonsense.
Firstly, all violent crime is arguably motivated by hate.
Second, most gun violence has nothing to do with the left’s definition of hate.
And finally, criminals do not follow the law.
As usual, none of these Democratic policies are effective, but they help them move the ball down the field toward full gun confiscation.
Several Democratic candidates have flat-out said they’re coming for your guns.
They want mandatory buybacks, which don’t work, and gun registries, which is a gross violation of civil liberties.
Nancy Pelosi is not to be underestimated.
She and the Democrats will stoop to any level to get what they want.
