Drudge Report Recognizes Republican Betrayal on the Second Amendment
Famed Conservative news aggregator Drudge Report recognizes the anti-gun shenanigans that D.C. Republicans are trying to pull off.
It linked to an MSN News story detailing Republicans’ latest rally around red flag gun confiscation orders.
Under “red flag” laws, law enforcement would be allowed to confiscate firearms from individuals who allegedly pose a “threat” to themselves or others. These laws are already present in multiple states, and now appear to have strong bipartisan support in Washington D.C.
Right off the bat, Republican Congressman Dan Crenshaw and Senator Lindsey Graham endorsed “red flag” legislation. President Donald Trump seconded their motion and said that he would sign such a law if it came to his desk.
Senate Majority Whip John Thune of South Dakota has joined them as well. He told his his hometown newspaper, The Argus Leader, that he was “confident Congress will be able to find common ground on the so-called red flag issue.”
Additionally, Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey wants to revive his failed universal background check bill that he co-sponsored alongside Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin in 2013. Toomey tweeted, “I also agree with Senator Lindsey Graham that we should pass a bipartisan ‘red flag’ measure that enables families and law enforcement to obtain a court order to keep guns away from dangerous individuals.”
Political commentators, who are in touch with Middle America, strongly disagree with Republican leadership on this move.
Like Drudge, Rush Limbaugh understands that red flag bills are gun control. But this time with a fancy title.
During his show on August 6, 2019, Rush Limbaugh described red flag bills as a “pipeline to gun control.”
Tensions are running high in America.
Nevertheless, Republican leadership must maintain its calm and respect the will of its voters and not the hand-wringing from the anti-gun media.
One false move, and the floodgates to massive civilian disbarment will burst wide open.
