Fake National Populist Marco Rubio Promotes Gun Grab
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.
