CNN Thinks the NRA Blockade Can be Broken
While looking through the morning news for anything firearms related, an article from CNN came up. The author of the article did an excellent job talking about the Brady Bill, and the 1994 assault weapons ban.
However, the author then makes a rather telling error. He thinks Republicans from urban areas can be swayed to pass more gun control laws.
What he does not mention, is how Democrats lost over 1,000 state seats while President Obama was in office. When Democrats held both houses and the presidency, from 2008 – 2010, they were unable to pass any new gun control laws.
Article from CNN – How gun control advocates could break the NRA’s blockade.
Since early in Bill Clinton’s first term as president, the National Rifle Association and its legislative allies have effectively stymied meaningful federal gun control legislation.
That blockade has held for two decades despite a succession of mass shootings over so horrific they have become known simply by their location: Columbine, Aurora, Newtown, San Bernardino, Orlando and now Las Vegas.
What exactly is “meaningful federal gun control legislation”? Gun control advocates have taken and taken until there is nothing more to give.
While it is true some Republicans may be swayed, gun control advocates should be concerned about the foundation of the Democrat party.
If Democrats were unable to make progress between 2008 – 2010, when they controlled the federal government, what makes them think they can pass anything at all? This is especially true after the electoral college landslide defeat of Hillary in the 2016 presidential election.
After the scandal of the Democratic National Convention (DNC) favoring Hillary, and the DNC email leaks, the party should be worried about their survival, and less worried about gun control.
The honest truth is, there has been an open rebellion against the aging Democrat leadership. Nancy Pelosi has been asked to resign several times.
Sen. Feinstein said there was no law that could have stopped the Las Vegas shooter. In a video interview, she could not list any new laws that could prevent a repeat shooting.
Yet, while the Democrat party is falling apart, CNN thinks the NRA blockade can be broken?
No wonder President Trump calls CNN fake news.
