Senators Reach Agreement on Gun Control, Take Guns from Law-Abiding AmericansReader06/13/2022 (Mon) 03:16:14 Id: 9f37a0No.18526del
A group of bipartisan senators on Sunday reached an agreement on principle for gun legislation which includes ‘red flag’ laws. 10 Republicans joined the Democrats and bowed to their demands. The actual legislation has not been written yet. Last week the House of Representatives approved sweeping gun control legislation that bans high-capacity magazines and raises the age to purchase an ‘assault rifle’ to 21. The House passed the gun legislation 223-204 – 5 Republicans voted “yea” – 2 Democrats voted “nay.” Back in September 2019, Rep. Ken Buck reported on the real intent of the Democrat’s red flag laws.
Rep. Buck said Democrats want to use the laws to take guns from rural Americans but that Democrats voted down his amendment to include gang members in the legislation. Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee rejected an amendment that would have red-flagged anyone who law enforcement lists as a gang member. According to JPFO.org 80% of gun homicides are committed by gang members. The Red Flag Laws by Democrats are not meant to stop crime. They are only meant to take guns from legal gun owners.
