Gun Grabber Round Up

The Children's Crusade (I don't know why am bothering with the reference, nobody seems to get it) pushes forward.

On Wednesday, Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., declared his intention to introduce a bipartisan bill with Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., to raise the age limit on buying rifles for non-military gun purchasers.

The Senate is also considering other gun control measures. Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Penn., will introduce legislation to expand federal background checks.

Another bill has been proposed by Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, that would strengthen background checks by incentivizing states and federal agencies to upload information to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. Critics like Gun Owners of America fear the names of millions of law-abiding Americans may be included in this federal database and worry that “false positives” could illegitimately deprive individuals of their Second Amendment rights, potentially at a time when they are seeking a firearm for their personal safety.

Time was, it used to be pretty damned unusual for a Republican to be seen backing a gun control measure, let alone fucking introducing one. But as I said yesterday, "there is no one more free than someone who has nothing to lose and the Cuckservitves have nothing to lose." Soon to be ex-Senator Flake has less to lose than that. There maybe electoral disaster in the fall but at least that son of a bitch will be a memory no matter which way it goes.


Hey big shock coming in guys.  You know, the Catamite News Network's teen drama from the survivors of the high school shooting?  It was a completely scripted event.

Colton Haab, a student who survived last week’s mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, refused to participate in a CNN Town Hall on Wednesday night after he was told to ask a “scripted” question.

Haab, a junior at the high school, told Fort Lauderdale ABC affiliate WPLG that CNN invited him to speak at the televised town hall in nearby Sunrise, Florida, and that he and his parents had dressed up for the occasion.

Haab: I expected to be able to ask my questions and give my opinion on my questions.

Reporter Janine Stanwood: But Colton Haab, a member of the Junior ROTC, who shielded classmates in the midst of terror, says he did not get to share his experience.

Haab: CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions, and it ended up being all scripted.

Stanwood: Colton wrote questions about school safety, suggested using veterans as armed school security guards, but claims CNN wanted him to ask a scripted question instead. So he decided not to go.

Haab: I don’t think that it’s going to get anything accomplished. It’s not going to ask the true questions that all the parents and teachers and students have.

The kid quit the event rather than be part of it.  Probably for the best, the SJW siege he would have gone through for defying the Holy Narrative would be a lot for anybody of any age to have go through.  For a kid who is trying to apply to college?  Forget it.  Although apparently he is JROTC, so Haab might have a better plan than that going for him.


In other unshocking news.

Former Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke has suggested the teenager survivors of the Florida high shooting massacre are being influenced by Democratic billionaire George Soros as they push for gun control.

Clarke, a prominent supporter of President Trump, took to Twitter on Wednesday to insinuate that the recent rallies for gun reform are actually a political effort driven by Democrats.

'The well ORGANIZED effort by Florida school students demanding gun control has GEORGE SOROS' FINGERPRINTS all over it,' Clarke tweeted.

'It is similar to how he hijacked and exploited black people's emotion regarding police use of force incidents into the COP HATING Black Lives Matter movement.'

My own view has been that this whole thing was exceptionally well organized from the start. The #NeverTrump Cucks were read in and the high school kids are being organized in a way that just doesn't happen simultaneously. I had suspected Nanny Bloomberg. But this effort has been too effective for that. I agree with Clarke's suspicions. I'm smelling Soros.  The old bastard is 89 years old. What is the Grim Reaper waiting for?


To end on something that approaches a positive note.

Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan says that the House will vote down any legislation on expanding federal background checks for gun purchases if it does not include provisions guaranteeing concealed carry reciprocity.

Concealed carry reciprocity would allow permitted handgun owners to carry concealed in all states where the practice is lawfully allowed. The House passed a concealed carry reciprocity measure in December, which was passed to the Senate and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary.

Jordan told Politico’s Rachael Bade that passing a new bill without a reciprocity clause — including the current version of the bill being pushed in the Senate by John Cornyn — “would allow bureaucrats and administrators to take away an individual’s Second Amendment liberties, and something that fundamental you’ve got to have a court make that decision to give due process to American citizens.”

Expect the Democrats to shoot down any background check legislation that includes reciprocity because the idea of any kind of constitutionally guaranteed freedom being exercised in a Blue State is a horror beyond imagining to them.

I wish a Congress Critter had the guts to attach a poison bill to Flake's Folly. Can't buy a rifle until 21? Let's raise the voting age also, then!

It stands to reason, if you're not mature enough to drink or buy a rifle, you're not mature enough to vote.
