(Republican Party News) – Now that Democrats control both chambers of Congress and the White House it was only a matter of time before they made radical moves to come for our guns.
Just hours after the House passed an outrageous bill that allows for unlimited delays for FBI background checks, and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer brought back to life a previously House-passed bill that would require background checks for private firearm sales, Sen. Dianne Feinstein made it clear they’re only getting started.
Feinstein announced that she will soon be working “with her Senate colleagues” to get other gun reform legislation passed, including a ban on assault weapons, in the coming weeks.
Democrats have yet to define what features on the big bad assault weapons that are functionally equivalent to guns classified as “hunting rifles” will be banned, but rest assured they’re dutifully working on restricting Americans’ Second Amendment rights any nonsensical way they can.

In her statement, Feinstein called universal background checks a “commonsense approach” to curbing the supposed gun violence “epidemic” plaguing our country. Clearly a restoration of American and Judeo-Christian values is no answer for the Dems.
They’re perfectly content with this broken, backwards and morally corrupt society that they’ve created where everyone is angry and offended. They would just prefer if people would stop shooting each other, which tends to be a bigger problem in minority communities, specifically black neighborhoods that Democrats have neglected for decades. The only violence they condone is against defenseless babies inside their mothers’ wombs.
Feinstein discussed her support of the recently House-passed bill that would “require background checks on all gun sales and transfers, including for private and unlicensed sales for which they are not currently required.” She contended that this measure is actually “one of the best ways” to make sure guns aren’t ending up in the “hands of dangerous people.”
She went on to claim that the majority of Americans want “universal background checks” and cited a 2019 Washington Post-ABC News poll that showed 89 percent of Americans are supposedly in support of background checks for all gun purchases.
Of course, the Washington Post-ABC News poll was undoubtedly taken using an extremely biased group of respondents but it’s just the kind of poll the Dems prefer.
Feinstein concluded by saying that she is looking forward to working with her Senate colleagues in passing this bill and “other reforms” which she went on to specifically list an “assault weapons ban” that she plans to introduce.
She claims that “common sense” gun reform bills have already been introduced in the House and now that Biden is in the White House it’s “time to take action to end gun violence.”
Remember, Democrats truly believe that guns kill people rather than people.
Feinstein isn’t alone in her zeal for renewed efforts to restrict and trample on Americans’ Second Amendment rights. On Thursday, Schumer promised to reintroduce gun reform legislation.
Keep in mind, this is all going on while illegal immigrants flood our southern border. Cartels are taking full advantage of Biden’s open door policy and you can believe they’ve got their own guns and they’re bringing them with them.
While Democrats attempt to strip Americans of their guns they’re allowing dangerous illegal immigrants to flood into our country bringing with them their own weapons. What could possibly go wrong?
“No more hopes and prayers, thoughts and prayers—a vote is what we need,” said Schumer, vowing to bring bill H.R. 8 out of former Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s “legislative graveyard” after it stalled in the Senate in early 2019 after passing through the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives.

I introduced #HR8, my bill to help keep our communities safe from gun violence. This bill expands background checks to be universal, the fastest and most effective way to save lives. Watch my message on the Bipartisan Background Checks Act here: pic.twitter.com/GEwXhc5vCQ

Republicans are not convinced that the bill is going to do a darn thing to keep guns out of the hands of criminals.
“The idea that this is going to make us safer is laughable,” said Rep. Mary Miller (R-IL). “Criminals looking to get their hands on firearms to use in crimes are not going to submit to background checks. Only law-abiding citizens will follow the law. This is a back door means of setting up a national registry of firearms – something I completely oppose.”
These bills only serve to restrict the rights of law-abiding citizens. They won’t do a thing to deter illegal gun sales that are happening all over the country already.
