And so it was once again that we recently had yet another ‘Gang of 15’ RINOs who had absolutely no difficulty in choosing to side with the Democrats instead of with the Constitution and to once again stab the American people in the back. But then why should we have expected anything different? And in so doing these individuals again made abundantly clear why it is that we should view them as being a far greater threat to our Republic than even the Democrats. This insidious group of individuals routinely betray the trust of those who elect them, thus proving themselves to be nothing less than absolutely useless to us. And yet they’re continually re-elected?
And it was this ‘Gang of 15’ who, this past Thursday night, chose to vote “yes” on the gun control package crafted by RINO John Cornyn together with a few select Democrats. Cornyn’s gun control bill expands background checks for some gun buyers, uses taxpayer money to incentivize states to enact red flag laws, and broadens the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) prohibited purchasers list by using domestic violence statutes to cover dating relationships. It also heightens punishments for gun crimes that had nothing to do with Uvalde, Buffalo, Parkland, Las Vegas, Orlando, or Sandy Hook. The legislation passed by a vote of 65-33.
And here are the names of those 15 turncoats who chose to join with the Democrats and to vote for the new gun controls: Roy Blunt, Richard Burr, Shelley Moore Capito, Bill Cassidy, Susan Collins, John Cornyn, Joni Ernst, Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell, Lisa Murkowski, Rob Portman, Mitt Romney, Thom Tillis, Pat Toomey and Todd Young. No surprises here, really. All the ‘usual suspects’ once again. Some of these RINOs will be gone soon, and the rest need to follow ASAP. Also, if Republicans do regain control of Congress this fall, any Republican majorities will need to replace McConnell as leader in the Senate and McCarthy in the House if we’re to get back on the right track.
It’s clear that this recent piece of legislation was nothing more than another knee jerk reaction to a problem that does not exist. And as such, it will do nothing to stop mass shootings in any real way. If stricter gun laws were the answer then places like Chicago would not be losing dozens of citizens, most of them black, every single weekend to gun violence. Criminals don’t pay attention to gun laws. You know that, I know that, Democrats know that, and these RINOs know that as well. The Constitution clearly states that the “Right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” What this legislation attempts to put into place is constitutionally unenforceable.
Murkowski of Alaska and Young of Indiana are the only two in this cadre of traitors who are up for reelection this fall. Of the rest, four are retiring and those that remain won’t be made to face the voters until 2026. And if you don’t start pounding on their front doors they will continue to do this. We can no longer afford to respect the process, or we will lose, and lose, and lose. These people must be made to understand that they are in office because we put them there, and to current position in jeopardy. We do have a means at our disposal of removing them from office. They must understand that we are no longer going to accept their willingness to go rogue.
Because, in addition to reinforcing the ABSURD notion that a God given ‘Right’ can be somehow modified, or even revoked, by those who are sworn to uphold them, they violate the most profound of all of the implied Rights embodied in our Constitution: The Right to be left the Hell alone. It is not only my Right to keep and bear arms, but how, and to what extent I do so, is none of the government’s business! I would never have thought there would come a day when I would actually live in fear of my government. But when I look at politicians such as these 15, who are supposed to be on the right side, I can’t help but think our days of living in freedom are numbered.
And while, as far as I’m concerned, the political careers of these 15 should now be considered as over, that’s far from a certainty. Sadly, Americans have notoriously short memories when it comes to the constitutional atrocities committed by those whom they vote for. The concept that politicians only do what they are elected to do ceased some time ago. And we have failed to hold accountable those who continually betray us to the point where they no longer fear us. They now feel like they can do whatever they wish and this most recent betrayal is just another example of that. Those who have voted for any if these turncoats should be ashamed of themselves.
And so, it was once again that the Democrats were forced to give up absolutely nothing. But then this is how RINOs typically negotiate. The RINOs who chose to vote for this debacle are clearly, and notoriously, proud members of the ‘deep state’ and devoted to the preserving of the current bureaucratic and political status quo of elites who despise the voters ‘back home.’ It’s important to remember that this is not about gun control, but anyone’s definition. It’s about people control. The millions of law-abiding gun owners are NOT the problem. Guns will continue to be gotten illegally regardless. These laws will do nothing to stop gun violence. Just ask Chicago.
