Gun Control At Top of Nancy Pelosi’s To-Do List

Published

House Democrats are taking the next step to pass Universal Background Checks in the US House of Representatives.

H.R. 8, the House’s Universal Background bill, is expected to receive a vote in the House Judiciary Committee on February 13, 2019 and then be sent to the House floor for a full vote.

The current legislation has 230 House co-sponsors, which include 5 Republicans Peter King (N.Y.), Brian Fitzpatrick (Penn.), Brian Mast (Florida), Fred Upton (Mich.), and Chris Smith (N.J.).

This gun control scheme would have the government snooping in on all private firearm transactions, thereby building a quasi-gun registration scheme under the Brady law which was passed in 1993.

In other words, nearly all firearms purchase made in the United States would have to go through the Brady-NICS registration system.

For those who gift guns to others, H.R. 8 is a bureaucratic nightmare waiting to happen.

H.R. 8 requires that loans, gifts, and firearm sales be processed at a gun store. The same bureaucratic hoops—fees, paperwork, and record-keeping—apply to the purchase of new guns at stores as well.

If an individual skips going to the gun store when loaning out a gun to a friend, they can still be subject to the same penalty as someone who knowingly sells a gun to a convicted felon.

With Democrats in firm control of the House and a handful of moderate Republicans jumping on the gun control bandwagon, the likelihood of gun control passing the House is very high. H.R’s 8 potential passage would mark the first time since the Clinton era that a massive gun control was passed out of a chamber of Congress.

That being said, H.R. 8 will have a hard time making its way to the Republican-controlled Senate.

UBCs are the law in eleven states (California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington) and the District of Columbia. Maryland and Pennsylvania impose background checks for handguns, whereas long guns, such as rifles and shotguns are not covered by background checks.

Economist John Lott has found that UBCs have very little impact on fighting crime, and actually create another layer of gun control that makes it harder for disadvantaged groups like minorities to exercise their gun rights.

However, when emotions run high, sound public policy goes straight out the window.

The Left Wing Media is Leading a War on Conservatives & Hope To Destroy You

Published

At the New Republic, staff write Osita Nwanevu called for the destruction of the GOP.

Nwanevu cited the cases of Donald Trump and Roy Moore as why the GOP should go the way the of the Dodo.

The writer took issue with the Republican National Committee’s decision to continue supporting Moore amid allegations of child molestation. He also criticized the Trump administration for its caging of children at the border.

What bothers Nwanevu the most is how the Republican Party has backed Trump all of this time.

He even tried to link Trump to the previous failed administration George W. Bush.

Nwanevu attempted to draw the comparison below:

Trump’s own rhetoric of division and exclusion was preceded by the 2004 reelection campaign for George W. Bush, which took advantage of homophobia to boost turnout from social conservatives. Before thousands of Puerto Ricans devastated by Hurricane Maria were forced by the Trump administration’s shoddy recovery effort to ask themselves whether they were really Americans after all, thousands of African Americans failed by the Bush administration’s relief efforts after Hurricane Katrina posed the same question to themselves. Trump’s intimations that the federal executive is above the law may well have been bolstered by the Bush administration’s warrantless surveillance of the American people. Even Trump’s efforts to integrate his companies within the processes of the state were preceded by the Bush administration’s curious keenness for contracts with Halliburton, the company Vice President Dick Cheney ran before Bush took office.

The writer also criticized Trump for sowing divisions based on racial lines.

In Nwanevu’s view, “Donald Trump is not a departure from the values defining the Republican Party, but the culmination of its efforts to secure power in this country.”

He took it a step further by describing the Republican party as “a reliable opponent of equality and a malignant force in American life—a cancer within a patient in denial about the nature and severity of her condition” that must ultimately be “destroyed—vanquished from the American political scene with a finality that can only be assured not by electoral politics or structural reforms alone, but by a moral crusade.”

The staff writer gushed about demographics, largely propelled by post-1965 Immigration Act policies, as a main driver of the inevitable political change in America.

The Left is no longer hiding their intentions when it comes to mass migration.

They understood full well its political implications, which is why they constantly brag about the GOP’s upcoming demise.

The GOP should take these threats seriously, and work day and night to re-elect President Trump and take back the U.S. House.

Trump should take the gloves off in his second term and carry out substantial immigration restrictions such as ending birthright citizenship and chain migration, fully funding the border wall, restricting pathways to citizenship, and completely defunding sanctuary cities to deny Democrats the permanent electoral majority they so desire.

The time for talk is over.
