Gun Control Liberals Exploit Tragedy, Expand Government
Three weeks have passed since the Las Vegas shooting sent shockwaves throughout America, and many questions remain unanswered. What was the gunman?s motive for such a terrible crime? Why did he choose Las Vegas? Did he have help?
While our dedicated law enforcement officials search for answers, the Left has put its anti-gun agenda into overdrive. This month, California Gov. Jerry Brown has signed three gun control bills, all focused on adding specific requirements? for gun purchases. As if the gun industry isn?t regulated enough: Gun-buyers often have to wait weeks for background checks to clear before receiving their firearm.
In Massachusetts, Democratic State Rep. David Linsky has introduced a bill that would ban modifications commonly made to firearms, almost always by law-abiding citizens. In Illinois, Democrats introduced an omnibus package aimed at reducing gun ownership. If only they cared as much about addressing Chicago?s gang violence epidemic and supporting local law enforcement as undermining the Second Amendment.
Members of Congress, meanwhile, have put forth sweeping gun control legislation to target bump fire stocks. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and 38 other Senate Democrats recently introduced the Automatic Gunfire Prevention Act, which would ban any device designed to increase rates of fire. In Feinstein?s words: So we need a law and we have an opportunity to get it. I hope Americans will step up and say enough is enough?Congress, do something.?
