GUN CONTROL FIZZLES: Sen. Ron Johnson Does Not ‘Anticipate’ Passage of ‘Federal Red Flag Law’

The fervor in the Senate to pass gun control is dying down.

Published

Senate Homeland Security Chairman Ron Johnson (D-WI) does not expect red flag gun control to be passed any time soon, as the media-driven hysteria following the gruesome mass shootings in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH continues to wane.

“I really don’t see the dynamic having really changed there much,” Johnson said. “I don’t anticipate we’re going to pass a federal red flag law.

“There are a lot of downsides to passing more legislation that doesn’t do anything positive,” Johnson added.

Johnson’s statements follow news that President Donald Trump, who initially signaled support for strengthening background checks and enacting federal red flag laws following the shootings, was pivoting on the issue following strong constituent feedback against gun control.

“A lot of the people that put me where I am, are strong believers in the Second Amendment, and I am also. And we have to be very careful about that. You know, they call it the slippery slope. All of a sudden everything gets taken away,” Trump said to reporters. “We’re not going to let that happen.”

Johnson understands Trump’s point regarding the pulse of Republican voters. They are firmly opposed to gun control, particularly red flag laws that could be used by their political opponents to seize their guns without due process.

“If he’s talking to the same people I’d be talking to, he’d probably be a little bit more careful in terms of saying: ‘This is for sure what’s going to happen,’” Johnson said.

“All I can really tell you is what I hear in Wisconsin: The debate really hasn’t changed at all,” Johnson added. “I realize the clamor and I realize the polling, but I don’t think that really assesses peoples’ knowledge of what we’re really talking about here.”

Trump reportedly told NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre yesterday that background checks are off the table, and the pro-gun group issued a tweet in celebration of the good news.

Democrats are up in arms about the apparent unwillingness of President Trump’s Republican Party to sell out the 2nd Amendment for the purposes of political expediency.

“These retreats are heartbreaking, particularly for the families of the victims of gun violence,” Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said in a tweet.

“It’s time for Republicans and President Trump to decide whose side they’re on,” Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CN) said in a statement. “Are they going to stand with the 90 percent of Americans who want universal background checks, or are they going to once again kowtow to the desires of the gun lobby?”

In an era where Democrats are accusing all Republicans of being extremists, racists and white supremacists, President Trump and GOP Congressional leaders are finally understanding that infringing upon the 2nd Amendment is not an option.

2.5 Million Guns Sold In March, SMASHING Previous US Record For Gun Buys

Americans want their guns.

Published

on

Federal firearms licensees sold more than 2.5 million guns to the American public in March 2020, easily smashing the previously held record for the most gun sales in an individual month by more than a million transactions.

The gun sale data has been gauged by Small Arms Analytics, and the estimation of a total of 2,583,238 sales has been pulled from raw FBI National Instant Criminal Background Checks System data. It’s actually possible that the total figure of guns sales is a bit higher, considering gun sales between private individuals are not subject to the NICS system.

Not only does the figure of 2.5 million gun sales surpass the previous monthly record holder from March 2019, but it does so in a resounding fashion. 1.4 million guns were sold in that month, meaning that March 2020 surpassed the record by approximately 1.1 million sales.

A breakdown of the sales between long guns and handguns was provided by Small Arms Analytics. Handgun sales in particular spiked exponentially, easily surpassing previous quarterly highs in gun sales that preceded major American elections.

An alternate system of quantifying gun purchases utilized by the National Shooting Sports Foundation verified that March was in fact a record-setting month for gun sales.

The surge in gun and ammunition sales in the wake of the nascent Chinese coronavirus epidemic is well documented at this point, with gun and ammunition retailers reporting selling out their entire inventories and still not coming close to meeting demand.

As Americans arm themselves in unprecedented record-setting numbers, some major American municipalities and states have taken it upon themselves to wholly shut down the lawful firearms commerce and manufacturing industries. However, several of them have been stopped cold in their tracks, in light of federal guidelines from the Trump administration that recognizes businesses serving the Second Amendment community as “essential.”

New Jersey and Los Angeles County are among the two biggest governmental entities forced to walk back arbitrary commands that gun stores close in light of the guidelines.

Dubious state of emergency declarations that try to implement backdoor gun control in a hour where more Americans are seeking to lawfully arm themselves than ever before simply aren’t going to work, judging from historical amounts of armaments freedom-loving patriots have secured in the last month alone.
