On February 2, 2021, Marco Rubio introduced a bill that would strip any individual of their Second Amendment rights simply for being “investigated” for acts of domestic terrorism.
Unz Review reported the following:
The Senate bill, named the Terror Intelligence Improvement Act, was reentered last week in hopes of exploiting the hysteria surrounding the January 6th Capitol protests. The law intends to violate the civil liberties of American citizens who are not charged or convicted of a crime if somebody is deemed politically dangerous.
David Codrea of AmmoLand observed that “Rubio tried this before in 2016 as a “‘kinder, gentler’ alternative to a bill being pushed by then-Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid.” Rubio’s move is in line with the Republican belief that by offering compromise or constructive Republican alternative proposals (C.R.A.P), they will satisfy the Left.
Despite all the talk about safeguards in Rubio’s bill, there will effectively be no protections for “due process” since Rubio’s bill would still take away guns from citizens who haven’t been convicted of a crime. Even worse, Codrea said guns would also be taken away from individuals not charged with any crime.
The Florida Senator exemplifies the flaccid nature of contemporary GOP politics, which concerns itself more with emulating the Left, albeit with a watered-down twist.
If we want to preserve our freedoms, Rubio’s behavior cannot be tolerated. All told, Rubio has no place in serious national populist movement.
POLL: Less than Half of Americans Want Tougher Gun Control Laws
D.C. gun grabbers should be careful because they might awaken a sleeping giant.
According to a new Gallup Poll, Americans are not as keen on passing gun control as the corporate media would have many believe.
Gallup surveyed 1023 American adults on how satisfied they were with the current gun laws. The pollster found that 56% of Americans felt dissatisfied with the existing gun laws, while 42% approved of the current measures.
Of those unsatisfied with current gun policy, 41% desire stricter gun control policies, while 8% want fewer restrictions. Only 7% want the existing laws to stay in place. Public opinion towards passing gun control has witnessed a notable decline over the last two years. Back in 2018, for example, only 46% of Americans wanted to pass more gun control.
Lone Star Gun Rights astutely observed the way Gallup used a misleading title to confuse would be readers:
Unsurprisingly, Gallup uses a cryptic title, “Americans Remain Largely Dissatisfied With U.S. Gun Laws” to imply that more Americans want more gun control. The mainstream media and gun control activists will pick on this survey headline and exploit the survey in marketing gun control.
“Given that dissatisfaction with gun laws is primarily seen among Democrats, it follows that people who are dissatisfied prefer stricter rather than more lenient laws,” the authors of the report assert.
With regards to partisan support of current gun laws, 69% of Republicans expressed their satisfaction with existing law. By contrast, only 22% of Democrats held similar views. Democrats have become increasingly anti-gun over time. In 2012, 40% of Democrats were in favor of the current firearms policy framework.
Democrats will try to sneak gun control in, but with the right amount of pressure on Democrats in swing states, any effort by the Biden administration will likely implode.
