Gun Group Wants Schumer Resignation; Prez Says GOP Senator ‘Would Be in Jail’

A somewhat contrite Sen. Charles Schumer tried to walk back his comments about Associate Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. (Screen snip, YouTube, C-SPAN)

U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- The head of one of the nation’s leading grassroots gun rights organizations says Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer should resign for his threats against two conservative Supreme Court justices, and President Donald Trump told a Town Hall audience the veteran Democrat would be in jail, had he been a Republican.

During a demonstration outside of the Supreme Court Wednesday, Schumer declared, “I want to tell you (Neil) Gorsuch, I want to tell you (Brett) Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”

Writing for the Washington Post, columnist Mark Thiessen observed, “On Thursday, Schumer said, ‘I shouldn’t have used the words I did, but in no way was I making a threat.’ Of course he was.”

Appearing Thursday evening at a Fox News “Town Hall” event in Scranton, Pa., President Trump told the audience, “If a Republican did what Schumer did they would be in jail right now.”

It’s not the first time Schumer has been criticized for his rhetoric, but this time it could stick. He was admonished by Chief Justice John Roberts and subjected to a rebuke by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and at least some members want him censured.

But Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, wants Schumer gone. In a bristling statement, Gottlieb observed:

“This is the real Chuck Schumer, a Capitol Hill bully who has engaged in political demagoguery for decades in an effort to crush the Second Amendment and silence citizens and organizations who have defended the right to bear arms.”

While he agreed with McConnell’s admonishment of the senior senator from New York, Gottlieb suggested Schumer’s problem goes deeper.

“The First Amendment protects speech,” Gottlieb noted, “except when used to threaten someone. How would Chuck Schumer react if our office declared the Second Amendment protects the public from people like him? He would probably whine that some ‘gun nuts’ had threatened him…Can you imagine the reaction if a Republican senator had made a similar remark about Justices Sonya Sotomayor and Elena Kagan at a gun-rights rally?”

Schumer is a perennial anti-gunner who championed the Brady Law when he was serving in the U.S. House. When he ascended to the Senate, he brought his gun control baggage along.

Recalling last summer’s effort by other Senators to influence the high court in relation to the lawsuit challenging New York City’s now-defunct handgun control regulation that prohibited travel outside the city with a handgun licensed for home protection inside the city, Gottlieb said “intimidation and thuggish behavior seems to be a pattern among anti-gun Democrats in the Senate.”

Schumer’s outburst didn’t involve firearms. It was about a different case out of Louisiana.

“Regardless of the issue,” Gottlieb said, “nobody of Schumer’s stature should ever engage in the kind of boorishness that produced the senator’s vile remarks. Schumer’s problem is that he’s made a habit of it, and he’s always gotten a pass. Maybe that might come to a halt after being rebuked by McConnell, but unfortunately, I doubt it.

“Chuck Schumer has made a career of trying to bully gun owners and gun rights groups, but (this time) he crossed the line,” Gottlieb said. “What Schumer did wasn’t just disgusting, it was despicable. He should hand in his resignation, the sooner the better.”

And now, Schumer’s behavior may not be the only problem facing Capitol Hill Democrats.

Appearing Friday morning on “Fox and Friends,” a gun rights activist named Antonia Okafor Cover declared Democrats do not understand true feminism. She said gun ownership empowers women, and in the process took swipes at both Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden, who are now in a face-off for the Democratic presidential nomination with several important primaries still to come.

Both candidates have announced gun control proposals, and Biden even said he would make former candidate—and extremist anti-gunner—Beto O’Rourke his point man on dealing with the gun issue. O’Rourke’s campaign crashed after he declared during a debate in Houston, Texas, “Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.”

Washington Post columnist Thiessen brings it all into perspective, showing there is much more at stake than Schumer’s runaway mouth. The U.S. Supreme Court makeup is on the line, as are any further vacancies in the lower federal courts that President Trump has been filling for the past three years with conservatives.

“This much is certain,” Thiessen wrote. “If Democrats win in November, their base will not be satisfied with simply replacing aging liberal justices with younger ones. They have watched with horror as Trump has transformed the federal judiciary. They will not accept the status quo and what they consider an illegitimate conservative majority on the Supreme Court. In other words, regardless of who the Democrats nominate, the future of the Supreme Court is on the ballot in November.”

Senator Schumer is strong anti 2A and has been even when he was a Congressman. His words to threaten verbally and on the news two Supreme Court Justices by name is absolutely wrong. He does need to resign and sadly we on the pro gun side never demanded he resign in the past for his support on numerous gun control bills. He should be made to resign, you can find his Senate Office address on the US Govt website a flood of letters to his office and to Senator Mitch McConnell that Schumer is forced to resign from the Senate.… Read more »

“He does need to resign and sadly we on the pro gun side never demanded he resign in the past for his support on numerous gun control bills.” How true. And I haven’t been as active in this regard as I should be, either. We have been putting up with infringements both big and small, and it has become a bad habit. Go along to get along. “I don’t need a machine gun…can’t afford the ammo, anyway.” “I don’t need X to hunt. Nobody needs X.” “My double-barrel’s just fine…” “I don’t want to wind up in the pen…” “Well,… Read more »

Schumer “The Scrumer” has NEVER had a real job. From the age of 25, he has been sucking off of the taxpaying public’s dime/teat! One of the biggest abusers of FREE air to ever populate the planet and ‘the people’s halls of congress.’ He is but another member of that DO NOTHING party that expells nothing but bloviating gas out of their gasbag blowholes constantly! He and many of his criminal cohorts are proof positive that our vaunted (not) American Electorate is far from intelligent, it is criminally STUPID! That “silent majority” that consistently ‘sits on its collective hands’ in… Read more »

After Schumer is made accountable, we get that mouth of the south belonging to Maxine Waters for saying the same thing. See it here. https://www.cnn.com/2018/06/25/politics/maxine-waters-trump-officials/index.html

It does beg the question as to why these ‘FREE speech’ instigators of violence are NOT held accountable. An abhorrent, despicable and overused phrase, “People of color,” tends to convey some idea that ‘people of color’ can not be ‘racist’ or incite violence, and that is accepted? When people were all but assaulted while attempting to enjoy a meal at some restaurant, why were the likes of ‘Mad Mouth’ Maxine, who advocated “push back against them and get up in their faces,” etc., ad nauseam, not prosecuted?

Any court I have ever been in, had anyone spoken like that to any of the judges or other minions of that court the presiding judge would have banged his gavel and demanded the chief law enforcement person on hand immedately arrest the speaker, remand him to costudy, and charge him with Contempt of the Court.

“Judge?” Might ask ole Chief Justice of the SCOTUS if your judge is a Clinton, Bush, or Obamanation judge;) He will give your his Nirvana answer, “all judges simply do their best in administering their Constitutional duties, and there are NO Clinton, Bush, or anybody’s ‘judges!’ LOL!

He is absolutely correct, if anyone except a gun-grabbing dumbocrat had said that they would most likely be in jail. If the republicans had the guts, the least that would happen to Schmucker is censure if not removal from the senate.

Arm up, and carry on.

When Schumer apologized, he admitted that he was wrong. You don’t do that unless you know you did bad. What more do these politicians need: a signed confession? The rubber hose treatment? If ever there was a time to make an example of behavior like this, it’s now.

Schumer, and most of the Congress and Senate are immune from prosecution, which is just plain wrong. Either by statute (law) or simply by practice (tradition) Washington politicians can get away without having any responsibility for their words or actions, and almost all Federal agency agents/employees are never held accountable for even the most heinous violations of law. The worst that happens with the politicians is that they are censored (which is simply a slap on the wrist), or they aren’t re-elected in which case they become lobbyists or are hired by the same corporations who already own them.

Ever wonder why Jews are so protected by our government? Because 99% of jews that are in political office are on the left. It is these jews who have caused the massive corruption in government. I’s also pathetic how so many on the right, especially Christians, who have fallen for the lefts fake hatred for jews, which they created to push the antisemitism agenda, thereby suckering the right into supporting and protecting jews. Even God/Jesus condemned the jews in the Bible, calling them the synagogue of satan! It is jews, like Weinstein, who control Hollyweird, it is jews who control… Read more »

In response to your first sentence I offer: Article I, Section 6., Clause 1. Of US Constitution … for good reason. Can you envision an Obama or Clinton arresting the opposition on false charges based on and including sworn statements from senior investigators / directors of the FBI, DOJ and other agencies ?

And, the dead in Benghazi is forever dead, while the criminals (Clinton/”The Anointed One”) remain FREE to sip margaritas and are still living off of the taxpaying public’s teat! That recent call to depose ‘The Criminal Clinton’ will result in the most replies of “I don’t recall, I have no memory of that, I don’t know” that there will be nothing left for her to remember except possibly her name!

Yes, our Constitution, our rights, and our form of government are the only things standing in the way of these Socialists. Unfortunately, too many are uninformed/misinformed and unwilling to learn the truth. We are close to what our Founding Fathers warned us about.

Schumer should be in jail right now, without bail because of his authority, money and ability to flee. He has not said he was sorry for what he did. If he gets the chance, he will do the same things again. To those whom much is given, much is expected — unless you call yourself a democrat. If Trump or any of his staff or anyone in the republican party had said what Schumer had said they would be in jail. If you or I had said what he did, we would be in jail. This event, sadly, is further… Read more »

If Schumer doesn’t go to jail there can be no confidence in our elected officials either. McConnell has the chance to lower the boom on Schumer but will he? Or does Schumer get a pass as DB indicates and we get further proof of the existence of the two tiers of justice.
