A high-ranking Republican member of the U.S. Senate just dropped a gun control shocker. Millions of Americans are completely stunned.
“In my judgment, we do not need more gun control,” said Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA). “We need more idiot control. How do we do that? We have already tried, the Republicans have.”
Kennedy continued: “Senator Grassley, Senator Cruz had a bill to strengthen our national database. […] Grassley and Cruz’s bill, which I support, would have tightened up the database, and it would have cracked down on people who have guns who shouldn’t have guns.”
Now, there will obviously be debate even on this bill, however, here’s the irony: Senate Democrats filibustered it — likely because it didn’t ban a thing. No ban on so-called “assault rifles.” No ammunition capacity ban.
The reason is that Democrats want to ban the Second Amendment. They aren’t interested in strengthening the national debate to just prevent criminals or the clinically insane from owning guns.
Democrats want all law-abiding citizens to be disarmed. Well, we have the Second Amendment for a reason, and the U.S. Supreme Court has already declared individual gun-ownership a constitutional right.
