Top Democrat introduced a new gun control scheme that is bad news
Democrats are ripping off the mask.
Every election year they pretend to be defenders of the Second Amendment.
Now that’s all out the window and one top Democrat introduced a new gun control scheme that is bad news.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz is the former chairwoman of the Democrat National Committee.
She pounced on the tragedy at Parkland, Florida to introduce new legislation requiring background checks for ammunition purchases.
The Daily Caller reports:
“In the wake of the “March For Our Lives” rally Saturday, and with no legislative appetite for more gun control laws, Democrats in both the House and Senate have introduced a bill requiring background checks for purchasing bullets.
“You do not have the right to bear bullets,” said Congresswoman and former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz at a press conference Monday announcing the introduction of a bill that would require instant background checks to purchase ammunition.
The Ammunition Background Check Act was introduced by Wasserman Schultz in the House and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) in the Senate. Like its name implies, it would require anyone looking to buy bullets to be subjected to background checks, similar to the one required to purchase a firearm in the first place.
Wasserman Schultz said, “I really think it’s important to underscore that without bullets a gun is just a hunk of useless metal, and a would-be killer lacks the means to actually kill or maim.”
The Florida congresswoman called the ability to buy ammunition a “loophole” in gun control laws.”
Democrats can’t outright ban guns because of the Second Amendment.
So they want to pass legislation that makes purchasing firearms and ammunition so burdensome that it acts as an effective ban.
Democrats are giving up on any pretense of respecting gun owners or gun rights.
That means if they get power back they will make ending the Second Amendment their top priority.
