Whenever a mass shooting happens, liberal Democrats jump on the opportunity to pass gun control.
The recent Texas shooting is no different.
But what is surprising this time is the gun control bill a RINO Senator filed to betray Trump and the rest of America.
“Republican” Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), along with anti-gun Democrat Senators Chris Murphy (D-CT) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) filed a bill known as the Fix-NICS Act.
As reported by Breitbart:
“On Thursday Sens. John Cornyn (R-TX), Chris Murphy (D-CT), and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) announced a new gun control bill which centers on background checks for gun purchases.
The bill was also signed by Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), and Dean Heller (R-NV).
Fox News Congressional reporter Chad Pergram tweeted that the bill is designed to “strengthen the background check system” in the wake of the Texas church attack.
The Texas church attacker passed a background check for his gun, although he had a conviction that should have prevented gun possession. He received his conviction via a court-martial while in the Air Force but NPR reported that the Air Force “mishandled” the matter by failing to report it to the National Instant Background Check System (NICS), which is the system through which background checks are conducted.
The Air Force investigation into where and how the breakdown on information reporting occurred is still underway. In the meantime, Sens. Cornyn, Murphy, Feinstein, Blumenthal, Shaheen, Hatch, and Heller are pushing for a new law.”
The bill is supposedly designed to enforce current law by forcing states to report people’s private medical records to the federal government.
But, as Dudley Brown of the National Association for Gun Rights points out, the bill denied due process rights to American citizens, similarly to how the Obama administration used federal reporting to deny hundreds of thousands of veterans of their Second Amendment rights:
“This new bill FORCES every state to keep meticulous records of gun owners via the ATF, and then mandates every state hand over their records to Big Brother… or else face the consequences.
Federal agencies will continue denying gun rights to veterans and could once again strip Social Security recipients of their Second Amendment rights.
The Feinstein-Cornyn package is nothing but a gun control “super database.””
The bill is opposed by both the National Association for Gun Rights, as well as Gun Owners of America.
But not every self-described gun rights group is on the side of the Second Amendment regarding this issue.
The National Rifle Association has come out in support of Feinstein and Cornyn’s gun control bill.
The NRA believes that if the Government states that you are mentally incompetent, you should be denied the right to own a gun without any due process.
If this law had been in effect before Devon Kelly, the shooter in the Texas church purchased his weapons; it would have been very unlikely to stop him.
The only thing that stops evil people set on doing harm is good people who are legally armed.
