GOP Making Unprecedented Move Toward Gun Control In Decades Following Outbreak Of Mass Shootings

This is disappointing.

This past weekend saw two, not one, but two, awful mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio respectively, and as you can imagine, in the wake of these tragedies there has been an outpouring of cries for the government to enact strict gun control that will infringe on the rights of law-abiding gun owners across America.

Normally, this is an issue that Republicans stand against, but for some reason, many folks in the GOP are moving toward gun control in unprecedented ways, no doubt disappointing voters in the process.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire:

Following Trump’s speech, the Times’ Sheryl Gay Stolberg reported that Republicans are “coalescing around legislation to help law enforcement take guns from those who pose an imminent danger.” As examples of the increased unification on the issue, Stolberg cites multiple Republicans expressing support, including Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who has proposed federal grants to help enact state red flag laws, Sen. John Thune (R-SD), who expressed confidence Tuesday that Congress “will be able to find common ground on the so-called red flag issue,” and Rep. Michael R. Turner (R-OH), who pledged to support not only a red flag law but a “military-style” weapons ban and magazine limit. ​

As The Daily Wire reported Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) appointed a three-person committee Tuesday to look into potential bipartisan solutions reflecting Trump’s priorities. “I asked them to reflect on the subjects the president raised within their jurisdictions and encouraged them to engage in bipartisan discussions of potential solutions to help protect communities without infringing on Americans’ constitutional rights,” McConnell said in a statement Tuesday.

“Red flag legislation also appears poised to move in the House,” Stolberg reports. “The Judiciary Committee was consulting with its members on Tuesday about whether to briefly return to Washington from a six-week recess to advance a red flag bill and other gun-related legislation, according to an aide to the committee.”

No matter what folks on either side of the aisle think, gun control laws are not going to solve the problem. Guns are banned in Chicago and that hasn’t done anything to curb the massive acts of violence carried out there on a daily basis.

Instead, it’s created a massive number of potential victims out fo the law-abiding individuals who live there. This is exactly what’s going to happen across the country when more gun control is put in place.

You can’t stop the evil in men’s heart with laws. If we could, then the fact murder is already illegal would be enough to stop these shootings. But it’s not. We need to change hearts and minds and that’s only going to happen through the spread of the gospel of Jesus Christ, who truly has the power to change lives.

Biden Condemns Trump for Using the Word ‘Lynching,’ But Said the Same Thing In 1998

Ain’t that something?

Democrats can literally quote themselves from decades past and then argue they didn’t say what they said. Doesn’t even matter if their words are on record. If that sounds funny to you, it’s because it is. They are ridiculous. President Trump for example, if he wanted to, could pull a word-for-word sentence from Joe Biden’s past, blast Biden for using it, then Biden would claim he never said it. That’s how Democrats operate. It’s just lie after lie. On Tuesday, Trump used the word “lynching” to describe how he’s being treated by Congressional liberals. Naturally, the left blew a gasket. Biden, himself, wasn’t pleased with 45’s words. But Biden is pretty much a comedian at this point. From Daily Wire: Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden was quick to attack President Donald Trump on Tuesday after Trump referred to impeachment as a “lynching,” which is the same term that Biden used in 1998 to describe the impeachment of then-President Bill Clinton. “So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights,” Trump tweeted. “All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching. But we will WIN!” So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights. All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching. But we will WIN! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1186611272231636992 Impeachment is not “lynching,” it is part of our Constitution. Our country has a dark, shameful history with lynching, and to even think about making this comparison is abhorrent. It’s despicable. https://twitter.com/JoeBiden/status/1186691273870233601?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1186691273870233601&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F1998-remarks-from-biden-surface-after-he-attacks-trumps-lynching-remarks WATCH: While Biden has called Trump’s lynching…

Dem Lawmaker’s Bill Would Put Citizens In Jail for Six Months for Using the B-Word Out of Context

In what world??

Democrats not only want to regulate the 2nd Amendment but they figure it’s time to go after the 1st, also. Because who needs freedom of speech? After all, even Rhodes Scholar Lebron James said there are negatives that come with freedom of speech – and he’s someone to be listened to! Check out this Democrat lawmaker from the same state as Elizabeth Warren. He wants the word “bitch” to be taxed but he’s going about it in a way only a Democrat would go about it. If you use the word in a wrong way, you’d be fined $200 or sent to jail for six months. Seems just a tad bit excessive for using…a word, doesn’t it? Oh, those silly Dems. From Reason: Massachusetts is taking the fight against nasty words to the next level with a new state bill that would ban the use of the word bitch in certain contexts. State Rep. Daniel Hunt (D–Boston) has put forward H. 3719 that would prohibit the use of the big, bad b-word when deployed to “to accost, annoy, degrade or demean” another person. Anyone who did so would be considered a “disorderly person” under state law. Penalties could include fines of up to $200 or six months in jail. Hunt’s bill specifies that either the person called a bitch or a witness to the bitch-calling could report the crime to the police. Reactions: Thanks a lot Massachusetts! California, the center of the universe when it comes to stupid, stupid laws, will see this and not only copy it but one up it somehow. https://twitter.com/Arqahn/status/1186764482611236864?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1186764482611236864&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F10%2F22%2Fmassachusetts-democrats-bill-would-make-it-a-crime-to-say-the-b-word%2F What will we do with all the dogs https://twitter.com/SorryNotaBot/status/1186786524991389696?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1186786524991389696&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F10%2F22%2Fmassachusetts-democrats-bill-would-make-it-a-crime-to-say-the-b-word%2F “Don’t mess with my first amendment, bitch.”- Jesse Pinkman (probably) https://twitter.com/presidentshemp/status/1186776934958665733?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1186776934958665733&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F10%2F22%2Fmassachusetts-democrats-bill-would-make-it-a-crime-to-say-the-b-word%2F Free speech unless some bitch gets feelings hurt. https://twitter.com/AnthonyBialy/status/1186766905442537474?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1186766905442537474&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F10%2F22%2Fmassachusetts-democrats-bill-would-make-it-a-crime-to-say-the-b-word%2F Daniel J.
