It appears the Democrats have NO PROBLEM with illegal aliens having guns.
It turns out the Democrats would rather protect criminal aliens than stop dangerous people from purchasing weapons. Yet those same lawmakers want to take guns from law-abiding citizens.
The evidence is their rejection last week of an amendment that would’ve required law enforcement officials to be notified if someone trying to buy a weapon failed a federal background check.
As proposed by Republican Congressman Greg Steube, an addition to the Democrat-written “Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019,” the amendment would’ve also applied to illegals.
“In the case of an alien illegally or unlawfully in the United States, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement” officials would be notified, is laid out in the amendment.
Because of this stipulation, the Democrats in the House Judiciary Committee scrapped the amendment and passed their bill by itself. H.R. 8 requires that background checks be run prior to any and all sales or transfers of firearms from one entity/person to another entity/person.
“Republicans said they were ready to offer additional amendments when Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, (D-NY) shut off debate around 8 pm, 10 hours after the hearing began,” Fox News reported, citing the events that transpired in Congress last Wednesday.
“Nadler called the background checks bill long overdue to address a ‘national crisis of gun violence’ that claimed nearly 40,000 lives in 2017. ‘Our country is awash in guns, and we have the shameful death toll to show for it,’ he said.”
However, what good is Nadler’s background checks bill if the authorities aren’t notified when bad people try to buy weapons? What’s telling is that Steube’s amendment was based on a bill the Democrats had proposed years earlier. Huh, what possibly could have changed their minds?
“The language of the Amendment came from the text of a bill from the 115th Congress. The Unlawful Gun Buyer Alert Act (H.R. 4343), introduced by Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI-1) and sponsored by Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY-10),” Steube noted in a press release. “However, both voted against the Amendment today, along with the rest of their Democratic colleagues on the House Judiciary Committee.”
“Clearly, the Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee don’t care about preventing gun violence, they simply are playing politics with Americans’ Second Amendment rights,” Steube stated. The fact that Democrats do not want law enforcement notified if an individual attempting to purchase a firearm fails a background check is truly troubling.”
Steube went on to say, “In rejecting this amendment, the Democrats have shown their true colors. It is clear they are not interested in preventing gun violence or stopping the illegal purchase of firearms, but rather they are only interested in limiting the rights of law-abiding citizens to advance their own political agenda.”
So there you have it, my fellow Patriots. The Democrats have proven once again they care more about those here illegally than they do the American citizen.
This is why we all need to work hard to reelect President Trump, increase the Senate, AND take back the House. We also need to make sure those we elect are for America First. No more wishy-washy, lukewarm Republicans.
We must vet anyone running for office at ALL levels of government. If we continue to put those in office who care more for illegals than their constituents, we are doomed.
