House Passes Sweeping Gun Control Legislation
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1898: U.S. Marines land in Cuba during the Spanish–American War.
The U.S. House of Representatives passed sweeping gun control legislation in a 223-204 vote, with five Republican lawmakers crossing party lines to vote in favor.
The Protecting Our Kids Act would raise the minimum age to purchase semi-automatic rifles to 21, require safe firearms storage, and ban the import, sale, manufacture, transfer, or possession of large-capacity magazines, among other provisions.
“Who will be able to tell their constituents that they stood with them and not with the gun lobby?” Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) said from the House floor.
“Americans are watching. They are begging us to protect them and their loved ones from gun violence, who among us will answer their call?”
However, the sweeping legislation is “all but certain to fail in the Senate,” Axios reported.
Oh yes, lets put more burden on law abiding Americans. We all know the criminals and psychopaths will jump right in and obey the law. Oh, wait! It is all about helping China disarm America, silly me, I forgot. Yep, better make sure those secure places you are forcing America to store their evil guns in have strong locks, you all know how those treacherously, conniving, evil guns can figure out how to escape and go shoot people.
Exactly guns will sit on a kitchen counter for 100 years but never get up on there own and shoot someone the truth 🇺🇸
Disarm America and dress the boys in wigs.
Kids today are influenced by violent video games to a point that guns and death doesn’t seem real to them . Should we send them to the front lines in Ukraine.? Can police search every home to see that every gun carrying American has a gun safe? About age limits for guns has it stopped underage drinking?
No sadly None of the new laws will work.
Right now this is all a political show by the Democrats . Someone funded that poor kid in Texas . How else could he have afforded all the ammo , guns and new truck.? Why did the police take so long to enter the school to apprehend him? These are the real questions that need to be answered in this terrible offense.
VIOLENT GAMES ARE BOUGHT FOR THOSE KIDS………SO WHO IS TO BLAME……….??…….PARENTS OF TODAY DO NOT WANT TO GIVE UP THEIR OWN TIME TO PLAY GAMES WITH THEIR CHILDREN………..NO WONDER CHINA HAS A SAY ABOUT PREGNACY…….China’s 35-year one-child policy………..
All the legislation in the world won’t change a criminal’s mind, they’ll find a way to hurt someone whether they have a gun or not. Force all the legalities on the legal gun owners and the thugs will continue as they are. Take ours away, they’ll still have theirs and we will be a bird’s nest on the ground free for the taking!
Why do we never hear the number of DEMOCRATS who “crossed the aisle”? Oh, because THEY ALWAYS vote in lockstep. But never is there any criticism of that. It’s always “How many Republicans will cross the aisle”, and if none do, it’s the end of the world. I’m so tired of these hypocrites. AND the turncoats.
I think everyone is tired of the bull crap. November cannot come to soon.
AMEN TO THAT MARVIN 🙂
THANK YOU BIG BOA 🙂
DOWN WITH THE DEMS/RINOS…………..HURRAH FOR THE GOP THAT WILL WIN 100%
GOD BLESS THE USA AND THE 2ND AMENDMENT……….THE 8.5 MILLION AND THEIR CCW’S ……
I thought it interesting that the democrats who want to minimize the police are now asking for only criminals to be able to have guns. I want all American’s, especially those who want gun control, to look at the world and see what countries, who don’t allow the public to have guns, live like. I don’t want to live like that, and I don’t have any guns.
Unfortunately, the RINO’s will swing the vote each time.
This is a Kabuki ruling, an Election Day stage prop.
You are Better to Have a Gun and May or Might have to Use It……..Then – NOT Have a Gun and Wish You Did. !!!!
Tired of Americans, who don’t have any Brains Crying About This or That…… Grow Up Americans and that is Mainly for
those Who basically don’t have a Clue about much of what is going on in this Country. ! ! The Stupidity of Adults in this Country has to come to a HALT and Begin a Wave of Smartening Up. !!!
SO WHAT! The bill will not make it through the Senate without a lot of corrections, if at all. I’m pretty sure the Democrats in Congress are just virtue signaling knowing they’re gonna get their little hinnies roasted in November. We will see them pull out all the stops, and crash and burn in November as they rightly should. We MUST kick these bums out for trashing the country in less than 2 years, and never let them take control again until Jesus returns. They can have the world after that. We’ll be long gone and won’t have to put up with them!
If we don’t address the issue of a persons mental state the gun legislation is ineffective. Why not leave the age at 18 since many of our military are only 18 and required to be proficient with guns but require two or three adult sponsors who are willing to attest to the persons mental stability before allowing the person to be approved for the purchase of firearms of any type. Sponsors would need to be someone who knows the applicant very well, like an adult family member, pastor, etc.
Forget the age issue and address the issue of mental health. Why not require the first time applicant to provide notarized statements of support attesting to their opinion of the applicants mental stability. These sponsors, perhaps two or three, would need to be someone who is familiar with the applicant such as a family member, pastor, teacher, etc. Limiting possession to persons 21 or older would be a “slap in the face” to our young men in the military.
NO LAW ever stopped a criminal from getting a gun, knife, etc. if he truly wanted one…..when they got rid of reform schools and decreased mental evaluations (five mental institutions closed in VA) due to the ACLU Supreme Court case the police, parents and schools could no longer recommend as easily as they use to…
Agreed, laws do not, and will not ever stop criminals, that’s why they are criminals. Here’s an idea, how about enforcing the laws that are already on the books. I know that it is a novel idea, but in reality that is what is missing. In Chicago, Cook County, Illinois laws are simply not allowed to be enforced because they hurt someone’s feelings.
The snowflake kleptocracy that is this entire country is more corrupt than it has ever been. Term limit are necessary. Representatives should be volunteers. NO PENSIONS for the time that is served as a representative of the people. All should live as the rest of us are living, such as paying for your healthcare. Let’s get back to loving our country and not ourselves.
WAKE UP AMERICA YOU ARE BEING DUPED!
