A major piece of legislation just passed — Democrats pushed it through against President Trump’s wishes. Now, there’s an update on the controversy.
In the wake of the horrific shootings in El Paso and Dayton, Democrats are demanding that the Senate take up a gun control bill they passed through the House in February. But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is standing firm.
Furthermore, there is no indication from McConnell that he intends to ever allow a vote on the bill. Known as the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019, the legislation would severely and unconstitutionally restrict gun purchases.
In short, the bill would require a background check for any person-to-person gun purchase. Some people might find this change to be innocuous, but it is not — Democrats are taking aim (pun intended) at the Second Amendment.
With this requirement, gun purchases online, at gun shows, and through private dealers would be rendered virtually impossible. You couldn’t even sell your hunting rifle to a family member or friend without a background check being performed.
McConnell shows no signs of budging, despite being attacked by radicals like Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez. She recently accused McConnell of “sitting on it since February and giving bogus excuses.” No, AOC, he’s protecting the Constitution.
