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

He is leading the push for red flag gun laws.

Published

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.

Massachusetts Gun Store Remaining Open in Defiance of Governor’s “Non-Essential” Declaration

The Gunrunner isn’t closing its doors.

Published

A Massachusetts gun store is remaining open even after Governor Charlie Baker labeled firearm retail establishments “non-essential” and directive them to close under the commonwealth’s state of emergency declaration.

John Costa, owner of The Gunrunner in Middleboro, believes that the Second Amendment provides his gun store with authorization to remain open.

Costa explained that “under the second amendment we have every right to defend ourselves,” justifying the operations of The Gunrunner. Business has been booming at the store according to Costa, with unprecedented amounts of gun purchasers patronizing the establishment despite Baker’s command that they stay away.

Baker expressed discontent at a Wednesday press conference upon learning that some gun stores in the commonwealth were remaining open.

They shouldn’t have been open last week. The only folks on the firearm side that have been essential been in Massachusetts since we issued the initial order are manufacturers.

Costa is practicing social distancing measures, as well. He’s not even letting customers to enter the physical space of his store. Instead, potential gun buyers are describing the kind of gun they want for Costa to bring it out to them curbside. It’s hard to imagine more stringent social distancing measures being utilized by any business, but it’s not good enough for the commonwealth of Massachusetts.

The store has received a cease-and-desist order from town officials after declining to close in accordance with state directives. Gun stores aren’t included as essential retailers in the proclamation issued by Massachusetts’ nominally Republican governor, and he’s going to greater lengths to close them than progressive Democrats in states such as New Jersey and California. Governors and sheriffs in both states caved when the Trump administration declared firearms retailers to be essential businesses under updated DHS guidelines, but Baker is steadfast in insisting that gun retailers close.

Americans have shattered previous monthly records for firearms purchases during the month of March, showing a desire to lawfully acquire arms that correlates sharply with the coronavirus epidemic. With an unprecedented demand for guns among the public, policy makers should think twice about arbitrarily demanding the industry shut down.
