Editors note: The Republicans told us they needed the senate to stop horrible unconstitutional detrimental Obama dictates and interpretation of laws. We got both houses yet nothing was done. Democrats only have the Whith House yet seem to get whatever they want. Think of the omnibus Bill shoved through by our new Speaker Paul Ryan. Lets be honest, the Republicans are spineless. They say never Trump so their establishment graff and perks can continue with Clinton, the most corrupt liar in modern politics who is responsible for numerous deaths and loss of classified information. Think about the Clinton Foundation getting millions from all over the world.
It’s official. The anti-gun, turncoat Republicans have announced they have enough votes to pass their gun control bill…
Even More Turncoat Republicans Side With Radical Gun Control!Fellow Conservative,
Late last week, Mitch McConnell held a test-vote on gun control. Before being embarrassed with another floor vote, he wanted to gauge support before moving forward.
The Senate could have killed the anti-gun Collins Amendment for good, but that’s not what happened. 52 Senators voted in favor of the amendment. This isn’t entirely accurate because notable anti-gun Senators Diane Feinstein and Bernie Sanders did not cast votes.
So the next time this bill comes to a vote, it will only need SIX Republicans to swap sides to pass it.
The amendment’s author, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), has publicly declared that another 10 Republican Senators have told her that they intend to vote in favor of this gun control bill. That would give this amendment more than enough support to meet the 60-vote threshold for passage.
We’re not out of the woods yet. The Commerce, Justice, and Science Appropriations bill is still being voted on. It hasn’t passed yet.
As long as this stays remains on the agenda, then the Collins amendment remains the greatest threat to American gun owners and liberty lovers.
You already know the specifics. The Collins Amendment would give the FBI the power to block someone from purchasing or owning guns without even having to produce enough evidence to charge them with a crime.
Instead of forcing a prosecutor to prove a suspect to be “guilty beyond a reasonable doubt,” this amendment would allow the suspension of constitutional rights without even forcing investigators to meet a “probable cause” standard.
Gone are the days of “innocent until proven guilty.”
A majority of US Senators officially voted to make American gun owners guilty until proven innocent.
It is a gross abuse of our Constitutional rights. This bill would gut both the 2nd and 5th Amendments.
Eight Republican Senators voted to give the government the power to arbitrarily suspend your Constitutional rights. You can see how each Senator voted here.
They came up just a couple votes short. We have lived to see another day.
But that other day is today!
The Senate is moving through the bills on its agenda to pass as many pieces of legislation as possible before going home to celebrate the 4th of July holiday.
If we’re going to save the Bill of Rights, we need to do it now!
