On the 1 year anniversary of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting in Parkland, Florida gun grabbers are mobilizing to push for more gun control which can be seen throughout the news and social media. David Hogg and March for our lives have already made their appearances and started the Virtue signaling in efforts to push for legislation to infringe on YOUR second amendment rights. At the end of march bumpstocks will be banned unless various gun rights groups can successfully fight it in court and have ban suspended until a decision is made. The question has always been whats next? Well they’ve gone from one item onto the next and that slippery slope theory isn’t looking like a theory anymore. Various bills have been introduced and this is another that has been added to the pile. Responsible gun owners need to take action before their freedoms are taken away!
According to Fox2news After a year without any significant gun legislation passed by Congress since the Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting in Parkland, Florida, Democrats introduced a bill banning high-capacity gun magazines Tuesday, as the one-year anniversary of the massacre nears.
The Democratic legislation, cosponsored by Rep. Ted Deutch of Florida and Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, would ban any magazine that exceeds 10 rounds of ammunition. The legislation, which has been dubbed the “Keep Americans Safe Act,” currently has no Republican cosponsors, one of many obstacles that would stand in the way of it advancing.
During a news conference on Capitol Hill on Tuesday, the Democratic legislators described the bill as one step in a process of passing individual gun control measures instead of a big comprehensive package.
“Guns become doubly and triply deadly in these massacres because of these high-capacity magazines,” said Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a Connecticut Democrat. “And so if we take one simple step in approving this prohibition, we can literally save lives. There is no more simple, straightforward way to save lives from gun violence than to ban these high-capacity magazines.”
On an issue that has consistently failed to advance in Congress and that many Democrats from more moderate or conservative districts don’t want to vote on, the proposal marks a significant development. It comes as Democrats control the House and it follows years of deadly shootings, many of which included guns with high-capacity magazines. Most of the recent legislative proposals related to gun control have focused narrowly on ways to improve background checks for gun purchases, and those have also struggled to advance.
Democrats are hoping that the reaction to mass shootings — especially those reactions from high school students — can translate to pressure on members.
Responsible Gun Owners need to act. We need to be more politically active. We need to show up at the polls. We need to fight unconstitutional laws no matter how we feel about what they are banning because once they ban one thing they move onto the next object that triggers them and so on. Contact your state representatives. Develop counter initiatives to combat these dumbass anti gun campaigns that are based on lies and feelings instead of facts and evidence.
