Democrats Already Looking To Push Scary Looking Rifle Ban

A bunch of interesting gun news. First, the Supreme Court did their thing

If you scroll around the news outlets, most are not taking it well, failing to understand that the 2nd Amendment is a national Amendment, and does not preclude some gun control. What States cannot do is restrict a state from requiring citizens to show “need” for a permit. New Yorkers do not need to show a need to purchase a guitar, SUV, or fish tank. None of those are actual rights, so, the State could actually do that, right? If they were complete morons. Guns are a right.

Here’s The Hill: “Supreme Court expands gun rights in major Second Amendment ruling.” It’s not expanding, it’s returning. The Washington Post editorial board goes with “The Supreme Court supercharges the 2nd Amendment.”

How’d all that gun control work for the Buffalo wackjob? How’s it working with all the shootings in NYC? If guns are so dangerous, when will Hochul give up her own armed protect?

(Breitbart) The Senate on Thursday easily approved a bipartisan gun violence bill that seemed unthinkable just a month ago, clearing the way for final congressional approval of what will be lawmakers’ most far-reaching response in decades to the nation’s run of brutal mass shootings. (big snip)

The vote on final passage was 65-33.

Yup, 15 Republicans voted for it. Most are either retiring or not up for re-election til 2026. The only section that will truly have any impact will be looking at juvenile records for those 18-21 who are applying for a gun permit. Pelosi is looking to take it up today

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced on Thursday that the House will take up the Senate-passed gun safety bill “first thing” Friday morning, after the legislation cleared the upper chamber in a bipartisan vote.

“First thing tomorrow morning, the Rules Committee will meet to advance this life-saving legislation to the Floor. When the Rules Committee finishes its business, we will head immediately to the Floor,” Pelosi wrote in a statement minutes after the Senate approved the measure.

How long will it take before it gets a vote? How much more crazy will they add into it, which would require another vote in the Senate, which might lose the support of the 15 Republicans?

And, of course

Dems toe delicate line on assault weapons ban

House Democratic leaders are toeing a delicate line with their promise to consider legislation this summer banning assault weapons — a politically explosive concept that divides both the Congress and the country. (snip)

The concept is overwhelmingly popular in the Democratic Caucus — a proposal sponsored by Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) has attracted 209 cosponsors — and liberals in the ranks are pressing the party brass to bring the legislation to the floor before November’s midterm elections.

“I would love a chance to vote for it,” said Rep. Jared Huffman (D-Calif.), “and I would love a chance to put others on record.”

But there’s a much smaller group of centrist Democrats, some of them facing tough reelection contests, who oppose banning a class of firearms that has emerged in recent years as among the most popular guns in the country. Most of those centrists voted earlier this month for a package of separate gun reforms — which included provisions to raise the age for assault weapons purchases and bolster state red flag laws — but are set against an assault weapons ban.

So, it might be popular with the gun grabbing caucus, but, there are too many centrists to get it done. And not enough to pass in the Senate. But, they’ll still try. Before they lose Congress after the mid-terms.

    It’s not expanding, it’s returning.

    More than that, it is returning a right to NY residents that residents in most of the other states already enjoy with provably no harm done.

    I’ll keep doing everything in my power to keep New Yorkers safe.

    She isn’t keeping anyone safe. She is oppressing them to death. She needs to get out of the way of them defending themselves.

    …and I would love a chance to put others on record.”

    So it is just election year show-boating, not a real attempt at improving life in America.

  2. UnkleC says:

    Probably no harm done. History is on your side, Professor. Typically, crime rates generally drop with more “liberal” carry regulations. The bad guys don’t want to confront an armed victim. The figures don’t lie, but the liars are figuring as we type.

  3. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    “More guns, less crime!!”


    Except in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Japan, S Korea, Lithuania, Monaco, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Sweden, UK etc.

    Every other advanced nation on Earth have lower violent crime and homicide rates than the US of A. Is the problem that we don’t have enough guns? LOL

    Shouldn’t the US of A be SAFER by now?

    • drowninpuppies says:

      Rimjob: Every other advanced nation on Earth have lower violent crime and homicide rates than the US of A.

      No need to go back and prove the dipshit is absolutely lying and/or misinformed.

      Bwaha! Lolgf

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        It should be easy for lil Cumbreath* to list the advanced nations with homicide rates greater than the US.

        Unless he wants to be known as the gay lord who say “Is not!”.

    • david7134 says:

      Again, your analysis always falls over your links of correlation and causation. You don’t understand that just because one factor seems to give causation because of correlation, the two rarely are linked. It shows ignorance and stupidity when you can’t learn.

  4. L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

    First of all Dowd you are welcome to give your rights away all day long but k3ep your commie paws off ours! Second, those other nations have smaller more homogeneous populations. If the US was all white Christians we would have a much lower crime rate too. Sorry but that’s a fact jack. If we could just pick up and move all the AA’s in the US and move them to Ottawa our crime rate would drop by 70% and Canada’s would skyrocket. We all know it’s true but go ahead and call me names because I said it. Now, if FJB the jerkoff would stop bringing in criminals and other third world undesirables into our country maybe we could start addressing crime.

    Stopping you and me and Teach from owning machine guns does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to reduce crime. It doesn’t matter if we have 10 round mags or us flintlocks, drive a car or a tank and have a cannon on our laws. WE ARE NOT THE ONES COMMITTING THE CRIME YOU LEFTISTS FAIL TO UNDERSTAND. yET WE ARE THE ONES YOUR ANTI GUN LAWS ARE “AIMED” AT. Why?

    Cause crime is not what you want to stop. WE are what you want to stop. You are ll liars.


    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Guns wouldn’t be a problem if they weren’t used to kill people. Only a few PETA-type nitwits try to interfere with the US’s 12 million hunters.

      The gun arguments are over. Guns are here to stay. In fact, the reactionary SCOTUS is expanding gun availability.

      Fewer than 1000 Americans are killed each year by gun accidents – thousands more suffer serious injury – but that’s acceptable given all the benefits of having handguns handy. The firearm homicide rate has been increasing since 2016 after reaching a nadir under President Obama. There were some 13,000 gun homicides in 2020. And we average about 20,000 gun suicides per year.

      On the plus side, guns make America much safer. The US already has the highest homicide rate of all advanced nations – just think how high the murder rate would be without all those guns!!

      L.G. repeats the conservative wet-dream of deporting all Black Americans to make America a better place.

      • david7134 says:

        So you agree that our troublesome 12% causes most problems in the US and that moving them back to Africa is the best measure. David Duke would be proud of you.

      • drowningpuppies says:

        Self-defense can be an important crime deterrent,” concluded a study by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) mandated via executive order by President Barack Obama. The findings also question the effectiveness of gun-control measures.
        Bwaha! Lolgf

      • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

        I used what you communists label “the conservative wet-dream” as an example of how you will ignore the truth. A fact. Not hard to see but hard to swallow for people like you who are more concerned about keeping blacks voting left than saving lives, property and tons of cash on law enforcement and incarceration. Is it not a fact that if the AA’s are removed from the equation our national crime rate drops by 50-70%? Then why instead of facing this fact and helping us do something about it would you rather continue blindly allowing criminals to exist? What is it about you that makes a virtue like facing a fact about American crime such a moral dilemma?

        WE are NOT ALL ADVANCED NATIONS, Dowd. We are the USA and we have traditions, culture, 350 million people most of them still Americans and a country full of leftist “diversity”. You are comparing apples to bananas. If you like other countries better then go! Let them benefit from your adroit wisdom and uncanny snark.

        See, the Democrat problem is, they’re hell-bent on replacing white America with a new, illegal-alien population that has no conservative American values. But they don’t want people to NOTICE what they’re doing. They don’t want anyone to call them out on it, or to object.
        They want to replace the population by stealth, attacking and berating everybody who dares to point out what they’re doing, until it’s too late for white normal citizens to react.

        I’ve come to the conclusion that the racial component of the replacement theory is secondary. The Dems just want to replace ANYONE who won’t vote their way. The fact that many of them are white is coincidental.

        Are whites the only victims of replacement?
        No. The Great Replacement affects whites more than any other group, but demographic change can dispossess other groups. In the United States, blacks have been pushed out of many cities and replaced by Hispanics. Here are figures for Los Angeles:

        Year Percent Black Percent Hispanic
        1990 11.20 37.81
        2000 9.78 44.56
        2010 8.73 47.74
        2020 7.93 47.98

        From 2000 to 2010, Chicago’s black population decreased by 17 percent in the face of gains by Asians and Hispanics.

        You can easily find all sorts of clips of democrats crowing about how demographics are on their side, that soon European white people will soon be a minority in the US. Including junta joe himself (2017), stating that this was a ‘good thing’. How is this ‘replacement theory’ a big bad invention of white supremacist right-wing extremists?


      • Down on the Corner says:

        I was horrified living in Texas back in the 90’s when the state made it legal for citizens to open carry in the state.

        I was livid. I thought there would be running gun battles on the interstate and people would be mowing each other down right and left.

        An interesting thing happened. GUN VIOLENCE went down. There is something about going to a Walmart with the intent to shoot it up and then you realize half the people in the store could be packing. So after a few years, I started open carrying, before getting my concealed carry because I found open carry is just too stressful. It actually gives the advantage to the bad guy knowing you are carrying and it gives him time to figure out how to get the gun from you while you have no idea what he/she is planning.

        Why do you think these evil bastards CHOOSE SCHOOLS and CHURCHES to shoot up? Or do it in states where people are not heavily armed.

        I would rather run the risk of a shootout with some crazed madman while possessing a legal firearm myself than hoping that 911 call results in SCOTTY BEAMING A DOZEN POLICE OFFICERS TO ME INSTANTANEOUSLY.

        In the end, we are all responsible for OURSELVES and OUR LOVED ONES. Just yesterday I was at the gun range re-zeroing my 300 blackout with my new SIG tactical scope and practicing with my Glock 19. I have ZERO desire to shoot anyone. I do however Conceal carry for a reason. MY wife and I both also carry pepper spray, which will always be our first choice.

        Just remember if you decide to carry pepper spray and use it, you will be sued even if exonerated by a criminal court and that is why IF you decide you are going to defend yourself you should have something like USCCA on your side.

  5. david7134 says:

    I said it is rare to see correlation result in causation. But, if you look again at your little list of perfect countries, you will find a recent sharp increase in violent crime, why? Well they made to mistake of importing masses of Africans. Now, you check this to get the proof and look at arrest records, and there it is, almost all of the violent crime arrest have a black/ brown perpetrator. Now, do the same for all your other ridiculous correlation like carbon and your other imagined issues.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      david good,

      No country is perfect. But other advanced nations have a much lower homicide rate than does the US. Australia, the UK, Canada, many European nations are, “diverse” yet with much lower homicide rates.

      Why do you think US homicides increased between 2016-2020? Were these from violent immigrants during the trump years?

  6. L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

    Dowd in his usual distorted view “Why do you think US homicides increased between 2016-2020? Were these from violent immigrants during the trump years?”

    Yes, some were. Most were in the democrat controlled ghettos in blue cities. Others were caused by gangs, drug deals gone bad and general crazies. But NONE were caused by a gun.

    There are many reasons why bad people do bad things none of which should affect any of our constitutional rights from gun ownership to trial by jury. You also need to understand NORMAL people don’t care what “other countries” do, they care about what we do. And NO, other European countries are not diverse compared to the US where the left has made it a religion.

    Guns don’t run around killing people, people do. Eliminate the killers not the guns. Leftists always concentrate on their politics not their reason, because they have none.

    The gun question is “settled science” as leftists love to say. It’s our BIRTHRIGHT and nobody is taking it away without a war. Or is war what you want Dowd? BTW, just like Hairy keeps yamming about EV’s but doesn’t drive one you keep yamming about guns but still own them. Even AR-15’s. Get rid of your guns hypocrite, or are you SPECIAL? “Two gun safes” fraud!

    FJB and all the jerkoff gun grabbers.
