Pelosi Begs Trump To Help Her Violate Our Rights
In light of the recent shootings in El Paso and Dayton, House Speaker Pelosi is calling on Trump to force the Senate to return from break to vote on Gun Control measures. She is trying to take advantage of the tragedies while they are still fresh in the public’s mind. But there is no reason to, it is a Republican majority, which means they should stand up for our rights, well that is aside from Lindsey Graham.
An excerpt from Pelosi’s letter to the president:
“It is with deep sadness and great urgency that I write following the horrific loss of life that occurred in Gilroy, El Paso, Dayton and Chicago, after which you said, “I think background checks are important. I don’t want to put guns into the hands of mentally unstable or people with rage or hate, sick people. I’m all in favor of it.” Mr. President, we have an opportunity to work in a bipartisan way to pass gun violence prevention background checks. However, Leader Mitch McConnell, describing himself as the “grim reaper,” has been an obstacle to taking any action.
Today, as Speaker of the House, I am writing in good faith to request that you call the United States Senate back into session immediately under your powers in Article II Section 3 of the Constitution to consider House-passed bipartisan gun violence prevention legislation.
One of the first acts of the new Congress was to pass the Bipartisan Background Checks Act (H.R. 8) and the Enhanced Background Checks Act (H.R. 1112). H.R. 8 simply expands the existing background checks law to include guns sold at gun shows, online and through person-to-person sales. Commonsense background checks are supported by more than 90 percent of the American people and are proven to save lives. H.R. 8 was so named because it was passed eight years after the deadly attack on Congresswoman Gabby Giffords that stole six lives. The House also passed H.R. 1112, closing the dangerous Charleston loophole that enabled the tragic hate crime at Mother Emanuel Church that killed nine devout parishioners engaged in worship.”
It’s a slippery slope once you start trying to regulate a right you are inviting the possibility of completely violating that right. The vast majority of gun owners are law-abiding citizens, Dems are counting on people to forget this in light of these tragedies. That’s why we need to keep in mind that these shooting are not by any means the norm. If Dems really cared they would be talking about the mental health problem we have in our country that needs far more attention.
