Last Monday the Senate voted down four gun control measures, the least offensive of which was Senator John Cornyn’s (R, TX) proposal to let DoJ delay a gun purchase by someone DoJ suspected but that also would require Justice to show probable cause in court within 72 hours in order to permanently block the purchase.
The Democrats’ response was as predictable as it was disingenuous. Here’s Senator Chuck Schumer (D, NY), for instance.
It’s hard to believe, but still true, that our Republican colleagues voted to allow suspected terrorists to buy guns. We will keep pushing until they see the light.
It’s hard to believe, but astoundingly still true, that Democrats continue to insist on depriving Americans of our rights whenever those rights become inconvenient to Democrat agenda goals. Suspected terrorists. Never mind conviction. Never mind even probable cause, which isn’t anything more than a showing to a judge that a case that might be brought has a legitimate chance of success in court, in front of a jury. Due process? Democrats don’t need no stinking due process.
72 hours is too short? The DoJ already has an extensive file on the suspected individual; that’s why they suspect him. The long pole in this tent is the drive over to the local courthouse.
We must keep resisting because Democrats disparage American rights and refuse to see the light.
Elections have consequences.
