Little Marco Rubio Joins the Senate Legion of Doom in Pushing for Gun Confiscation

Published

on

Florida Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) sent a letter to the Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) urging them to consider his bipartisan “red flag” bill (S.7), during the committee’s next business meeting.

Rubio introduced this bill in March 2018, following the Parkland Massacre of February 2018.

A one-pager of the legislation can be found here.

That same year, Florida enacted its own red flag gun confiscation order, becoming one of the first red states to fold to anti-gun pressure.

 The letter can be read in its entirety here.

 Following the Dayton and El Paso shootings, Rubio believes that it is now the appropriate time to pass this legislation:

The two horrific shootings that occurred this past weekend demonstrates why we must enact common sense reforms. Risk protection orders continue to have bipartisan support. Unfortunately, neither state in which these unimaginable tragedies occurred currently have a “red flag” law. It is too soon to say whether the deranged culprits who carried out these unspeakable acts would have been “flagged,” however, the options available to family members and law enforcement are varied, and often limited.

 He then broke down what his bill entails:

My bill simply seeks to incentivize states to enact their own risk protection orders, and ultimately, allow those who seek to do harm the ability to get the help they so desperately need. To have a chance at preventing tragedies in the future, we must be able to identify dangerous behavior that will enable the appropriate individuals to take legal action to remove firearms from dangerous individuals.

 

 

Rubio is not alone in his push for gun control.

He is joined by Republican colleagues such as Lindsey Graham and Dan Crenshaw. Even President Trump is in favor of signing a red flag bill into law.

This has the makings of the biggest Second Amendment fight in recent memory.

Gun rights supporters will definitely have their hands full in the next few weeks.

The fighter himself commented on this news, declaring “The anti communism bus tour will be arriving at a city near you #supernecessary.”

 

Masvidal, whose parents are Cuban and Peruvian, has been an outspoken Trump supporter.

Unlike other sports leagues, the UFC has uniquely positioned itself by not adopting the woke antics of leagues such as the NFL and NBA.

Masvidal is a veteran of MMA promotions such as Strikeforce, Bellator, and the UFC. He is currently fighting under the UFC banner and holds a record of 35-14. According to MMA website Sherdog, he is currently ranked in 4th place . Similarly, he is ranked in 4th place according to the UFC’s rankings.

The Welterweight fighter currently owns the record for the fastest knockout in UFC history, after he knocked out Ben Askren with a flying knee five seconds into the first round. Additionally, Masvidal won the “BMF” championship against Nate Diaz in 2019 after he battered Diaz and forced a technical knockout via doctor stoppage.

Masvidal fought current welterweight champion Kamaru Usman on less than a week’s notice for the UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 251, after he replaced the original challenger Gilbert Burns, who tested positive for the Wuhan virus. Before the fight took place, Masvidal signed a multi-fight contract with the UFC. Masvidal ended up losing the fight via unanimous decision.

Nevertheless, the card reportedly netted 1.3 million pay-per-view buys in America.
