Tillis and Burr turn traitor to the Second Amendment

Dan Zimmerman, writing at TheTruthAboutGuns.com, reports:

A group of Senators have announced that they’ve reached a bipartisan deal on a framework for legislation they say will do something about “gun violence.” According to The Hill, “The framework includes funding for school safety measures and mental health, a requirement to review juvenile records for firearm buyers under 21 years old and incentives for states to implement ‘red flag’ laws.”

The deal was pushed through by Connecticut’s Chris Murphy and Texas’s John Cornyn. The group’s press release states . . .

“Today, we are announcing a commonsense, bipartisan proposal to protect America’s children, keep our schools safe, and reduce the threat of violence across our country. Families are scared, and it is our duty to come together and get something done that will help restore their sense of safety and security in their communities. Our plan increases needed mental health resources, improves school safety and support for students, and helps ensure dangerous criminals and those who are adjudicated as mentally ill can’t purchase weapons. Most importantly, our plan saves lives while also protecting the constitutional rights of law-abiding Americans. We look forward to earning broad, bipartisan support and passing our commonsense proposal into law.”

The Senate compromise is a pale imitation of the radical gun control bills passed in the House that included safe storage mandates, federal “red flag” confiscation, and a ban on semi-automatic gun sales to adults under 21 years old. From the AP . . .

The proposal falls far short of tougher steps long sought by President Joe Biden and many Democrats. Even so, if the accord leads to the enactment of legislation, it would signal a turnabout from years of gun massacres that have yielded little but stalemate in Congress.

Leaders hope to push any agreement into law quickly — they hope this month — before the political momentum fades that has been stirred by the recent mass shootings in Buffalo, New York, and Uvalde, Texas.

As Murphy makes clear in his last tweet, this is an outline of an agreement. None of this has been actually written into bill form. The devil, as they say, will very much be in the details. Particularly concerning the sections on under-21-years-old “enhanced” background checks, FFL licensure, and federal funding for local “red flag” confiscations.

If you’re wondering who the Republicans are who have signed onto the agreement, they are . . .

John Cornyn – Texas
Thom Tillis – North Carolina
Roy Blunt – Missouri
Richard Burr – North Carolina
Bill Cassidy – Louisiana
Susan Collins – Maine
Lindsey Graham – South Carolina
Rob Portman – Ohio
Mitt Romney – Utah
Pat Toomey – Pennsylvania

Democrats Joe Manchen and Kyrsten Sinema are reportedly on board. Republicans Blunt, Portman, Toomey and Burr are retiring.

The Gunowners of America (GOA) has a fill in the blank form to email Burr and Tillis against this gun control bill. It is at www.gunowners.org

GOA and the National Association for Gun Rights are already opposing this bad bill. The more wimpy NRA is still in a wait and see posture.

RINO traitors like Burr and Tillis need to be G-O-N-E. Fortunately we are ditching Burr this year, and he will be replaced by a real Republican, Ted Budd. We need to replace Tillis in 2024. He is a disaster on many fronts from gun control to illegal immigration to overspending. I am embarrassed that the two clowns Burr and Tillis are my senators.

Gun grabbers like Burr and Tillis ought to remember what happened when George III sent his redcoats to grab the patriot guns at Lexington and Concord. I think many Americans today would have the same response that Spartan King Leonidas, defending the narrow pass at Thermopaylae (sp?) with 300 hand picked warriors, did when the Persian Emporor demanded with a million man army that the Spartans lay down their arms. "Molon labe" King Leonidas replied "come and take them!". It cost the Persians ten of thousands of their troops to take them.
