COWARD: ‘Little’ Marco Rubio Continues to Agitate for Gun Control

He is leading the push for red flag gun laws.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is leading the charge for gun control in the U.S. Senate, calling for “red flag” laws to be passed to legalize gun confiscations.

Rubio is not letting this crisis go to waste following this past weekend’s mass shootings, as he is relentlessly pushing for firearm restrictions that could conceivably be abused to take firearms away from conservative Republicans.

He opened up about his full-fledged support for the measure during a recent interview with Fox 13 in Tampa Bay where he defended gun control to the fake news media.

“‘Red flag’ legislation makes all the sense in the world. Today, if you identify someone as dangerous, you can’t do anything about the guns or the weapons they have until they commit a crime,” Rubio said, explaining his disdain for due process and the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution.

“How it works in Florida, is that you have to go before a judge. It can only be a family member, or someone who lives with you, or law enforcement. You have to prove to a judge that this individual is a danger, and you have to meet a certain standard, and then they can issue a court order, which can’t be any longer than a year,” Rubio added.

The anti-constitutional legislator used the tragedy to score political points and betray the tea party values that initially put him into the U.S. Senate.

“As a father, husband, and American, I am as concerned as anyone about the serious epidemic of violence plaguing our nation. Whether this violence is the product of radical jihadists, white supremacists, or personal grievances, too many killers have taken the lives of far too many innocent Americans. We must confront the societal and cultural issues that breed violence,” Rubio said.

“Research has shown that the vast majority of these terrorists and killers exhibit clear warning signs before committing these atrocities. That is why I have offered a number of bipartisan proposals to help identify and stop them before they act. I will continue to push for these solutions and support any new law that can prevent these tragedies,” he added.

In addition to red flag laws, Rubio also supports the Threat Assessment, Prevention, and Safety (TAPS) Act, legislation that would create a new federal bureaucracy tasked with formulating gun control schemes.

Jared Yanis of “Guns & Gadgets” recently explained how the TAPS Act would profile gun owners and create the underpinnings of a national pre-crime system:

Rubio is leading the GOP astray, as usual, and showing why he was rejected soundly as the Republican presidential nominee in 2016. President Trump would be wise to stop taking cues from the likes of Rubio and stand up firmly for the Bill of Rights.

2020 Was a Record Year for Gun Sales

Americans will not abandon their gun rights.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation reported that 2020 was a record-setting year with over 21 million background checks conducted on gun sales. 

In a press release that was published on January 4, 2020, Mark Oliva, the director of public affairs, stated: 

“This record year surpassed 2019’s totals by 60 percent and the previous record of 2016 by 34 percent. NSSF estimates that more than 8.4 million people legally purchased a firearm for the first time in 2020.

This occurred under the most challenging of circumstances. Law-abiding Americans demanded to exercise their right to lawfully purchase, keep and bear arms. Some governors, mayors and even Members of Congress actively stood in the way of that and didn’t relent until faced with court action. At the same time, workers in these firearm and ammunition factories, distributors, retailers and ranges made adjustments to keep their workforce safe and protected from infection while keeping pace with the demand of the American public. That’s a testament to the determination of the American worker that makes our freedoms possible.”

The overload of the National Instant Check System (NICS) shows how serious Americans are about defending themselves in times of unrest. 

Oliva recognizes that Americans will still be buying firearms in large quantities. 

“Retail shelves are still sparse, telling us there is still a strong demand and that elevated levels of firearm sales could continue for some time,” Oliva noted.

On top of 2020 being a record year for firearm sales, December 2020 turned out to be the busiest month in NICS history. According to Cam Edwards of Bearing Arms, 3,937,066 background checks were processed in December. According to estimates adjusted by the NSSF, roughly 1,906,916 firearms were sold in December. This represented a 22.7% increase compared to December 2019.

While there’s a lot to be anxious about, one thing remains clear: Americans still want to stay armed. The Left can deny this reality all they want, but any overzealous effort to regulate the right to bear arms will be met with fierce resistance.

The Right would be wise to recognize and rebuild their political forces at the state and local level by engaging in fights to pass Constitutional Carry and promote Second Amendment sanctuaries.
