Senate Republicans like Josh Hawley are Reluctant to Get Behind a Potential Gun Grab

Published

After establishment gun lobbies declared that background check plans being put forward by Attorney General William Barr are a “non-starter”, several Senate Republicans are “treading cautiously” according to a report from The Hill. 

Barr floated this idea to GOP offices last Wednesday as the Senate faces increased pressure to do something to address mass shootings.

The Attorney was cautious in informing his Republican colleagues that his memo on background checks, titled “Idea for New Unlicensed-Commercial-Sale Background Checks,” did not have the support of President Trump.

“I’m up here just kicking around some ideas, getting perspectives so I can be in a better position to advise the president,” Barr said to reporters. “But the president has made no decision yet.”

GOP lawmakers remained on the fence for the most part. Several even want to hear what kind of legislation Trump is willing to support.

“It’s one thing to have a few ideas on paper,” said Missouri Senator Josh Hawley.

Hawley met with Barr and White House legislative affairs director Eric Ueland last Tuesday.

“But in terms of actually being a concrete proposal where you can say, ‘How do you feel about this?’ I need to see a lot,” Hawley told reporters, after summarizing his recent meeting with the Attorney General.

“My question was, where’s the president on this? Is this something — I asked that question directly — is this something the president supports?”

Many believe that this bill being proposed mirrors the Toomey-Manchin gun control bill of 2013— sponsored by Pennsylvania Republican Senator Pat Toomey and West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin—which creates a universal background check on all gun sales over the Internet and gun shows.

Groups like the National Association for Gun Rights played a pivotal role in exposing that legislation in 2013 and effectively killing it.

Toomey lauded Barr’s effort to pitch Senate Republicans on the idea of gun control.

“I think he has advanced some ideas that are very constructive, very thoughtful, and could go a long way toward expanding background checks in a way that poses absolute minimal inconvenience on law-abiding citizens and increases the chances that we would keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people who shouldn’t have them,” he said.

NASCAR Fraud Bubba “Smollet” Wallace Cashes Out on Noose Hoax, Lands Huge Endorsement Deal with Beats by Dre

It pays to be a race huckster in diversity-occupied America.

Affirmative action NASCAR racer Bubba Wallace is cashing out on being the Jussie Smollett of the sports world, inking a lucrative deal with Beats by Dre to sell audio equipment.

“We weren’t going to announce this until later this week, but hate cannot win the day,” Beats said on Twitter.

“No one should ever be asked to apologize for standing up for what’s right …We are proud to welcome (Bubba Wallace) to the Beats by Dr. Dre family,” Beats added.

Wallace had a confrontation with President Donald Trump on Twitter on Monday, in which Trump reminded the world that Wallace is a fraud who performed a hate hoax crying wolf about a noose in his garage that never existed.

The Trump administration is standing its ground in opposing this shameless race-hoaxing narcissist who still has the gall to act like he is some kind of a victim.

“Look,” said White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, “the FBI — as I noted — concluded that this was not a hate crime and he believes it’d go a long way if Bubba came out and acknowledged that as well. This was not a hate crime, as noted by the FBI.”

Big League Politics has reported on how Wallace and NASCAR embarrassed themselves by claiming a garage pull-down rope was a noose:

Another hate hoax has unraveled after an FBI investigation has determined that nobody ever placed a noose in NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace’s garage stall at Sunday’s race in Talladega, Ala.

The FBI released a statement today regarding their investigation into the incident:

“On Monday, fifteen FBI special agents conducted numerous interviews regarding the situation at Talladega Superspeedway. After a thorough review of the facts and evidence surrounding this event, we have concluded that no federal crime was committed.

The FBI learned that garage number 4, where the noose was found, was assigned to Bubba Wallace last week. The investigation also revealed evidence, including authentic video confirmed by NASCAR, that the noose found in garage number 4 was in that garage as early as October 2019. Although the noose is now known to have been in garage number 4 in 2019, nobody could have known Mr. Wallace would be assigned to garage number 4 last week.

The decision not to pursue federal charges is proper after reviewing all available facts and all applicable federal laws. We offer our thanks to NASCAR, Mr. Wallace, and everyone who cooperated with this investigation.”

In addition, Wood Brothers Racing released a statement noting that the so-called noose was just a garage pull-down rope the entire time.

Although FBI resources were squandered on the case, social media figured out the hoax long before the federal investigation was concluded.

The continued embrace of Wallace following his public disgrace shows how deeply delusional and dangerous the Left has become.
