Gun Control On The Verge of Passing In The Senate

Gun Control On The Verge of Passing In The Senate IMG NRA-ILA

Washington D.C.-(Ammoland.com)- Congress is attempting to pass “red flag” gun confiscation orders and other gun control measures in the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA).

For years the gun measures have held up negotiations on the bill in the Senate, but it seems like Republicans are ready to cave in pass the bill with the gun control measures intact. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.)([with caveats], and Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) said that they see “a path forward” on the bill with the anti-gun provisions in place.

The bill has been one of the centerpieces of President Joe Biden’s anti-gun plan. On the day that Biden announced the David Chipman nomination for Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Director, the president pushed Congress to pass the bill. He framed it as a way to protect women from abusers.

“I held over a thousand hours of hearings to pass the Violence Against Women Act… this has been a hobbyhorse of mine for a long time — got it done once,” Biden told the media during the Chipman announcement.

The bill would establish federal grants to fund firearm seizures from Americans. These grants would be given to states to support the stripping of firearms from the State’s citizens. The bill would also create another category of “red flag” laws that would expand gun confiscations to people convicted of just a misdemeanor.

The bill would also increase funding to prosecute National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) denials. The vast majority of denials are false positives. Roughly 95% of denials are false positives. The funding would burden tens of thousands of law-abiding American gun owners that the system falsely flagged as prohibited.

One of the most concerning parts of the bill is that it provides special appointments and deputations to carry out the gun control measures listed in the proposed law. Many gun-rights advocates see these special appointments as a way of building a new anti-gun force that will violate the firearms rights of Americans. They point out that nothing in the bill makes women safer.

There has been some push back on the bill by Senators Josh Hawley or (R-MO), Tom Cotton (R-AR), and John Cornyn (R-TX). None of the pushback from the Senators centers around the built-in gun control measures. The lack of pushback against the anti-gun efforts concerns many gun rights activists who hoped Republicans would reject the gun control in the bill.

During the hearings in the Senate, Democrats were confident that the bill would be passed with the anti-gun measures intact. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) was all smiles at the end of the hearing on VAWA. He believes that the bill will pass with a filibuster-proof majority. With no filibuster in the House of Representatives, the bill cannot be stopped in that chamber of Congress.

“I look forward to introducing the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act [Senate Compromise Bill] with Senators Ernst, and Feinstein, [and] many of our colleagues, quickly,” Durbin said at the end of the hearing. “We want to move on this. We need to get this bill to a president who is ANXIOUS to receive it as well and sign it into authorization.”

Concerned gun owners have time to encourage their Senators to vote against the VAWA, but time is limited. Right now, it looks like the VAWA has the votes to pass in the Senate with the gun control measures intact.

Unless and until good people with guns stand up to criminals trying to take away the guns (and all of our other rights) nothing is going to change. This is the way of the world. The scumbags use force to make us comply, and that is the very tactic required of us to resecure our liberty.

We’ll see if it passes and then who will enforce it. In New Mexico all but 3 counties are 2nd Amendment sanctuaries and oddly NM is, and has been a Blue state for decades. Here in Arizona, the governor (surprisingly) signed a bill that prevents enforcement of any new Federal anti-gun laws in the state and other states and counties within states are refusing to enforce anti-gun legislation at any level. Pass all the laws you want, but when people refuse to abide by them and officials refuse to enforce them you’re just pissing in the wind.

No we are not. New Texas laws simply say that only feds can enforce new legislation. Existing law will continue enforcing any law the enforced before and will mistakenly enforce new laws. Nobody is going to be stopping federal agents doing whatever the f*** they want. Law was silent as to how our law enforcement will handle redefinitions. ATF would argue that shoelaces are machine guns and pistol braces make SBRs – no legislative changes, so Texas LEO are still free to enforce the newly reinterpreted (pre-existing) law. Not saying I do not approve the new laws, because I do.… Read more »

Also, there is nothing prohibiting Texas state, county, city/town enforcers from contacting federal enforcers (as they have before) and throwing their neighbor to the wolves. The new Texas laws have no provision that removes the not-so-qualified immunity (that TStheDeplorable doesn’t understand) from Texas enforcers who contact federal enforcers. Also, one of the laws Will (“TEX”) is referring to is the Texas suppressor law. At the time the law was up for vote, Will (“TEX”) claimed there would no longer be a federal process for buying a made-in-Texas suppressor in Texas. That was never the intent of the law and now,… Read more »

Reply to Will (“TEX”):

Yes, Will, that is the name for the category.

However, just like the dogs in Animal Farm (and the enforcers used by Mao, Stalin, Hitler, the Kim family, Pol Pot, etc.), they are enforcers for those who want their will imposed on non-government employees.

Most will enforce that will in order to retain their government job. A large percentage will do so enthusiastically because they get off on the power trip.

All totalitarians rely on enforcers.

When there are not enough laws to intimidate the people they want to intimidate, many enforcers will simply fabricate laws and attempt to enforce them:

I remember that case. I remember the cops on AR15.com defending the cops who attacked Watts.

Also, when an ex-LAPD enforcer says only 0.05% of enforcers are bad, it’s clear there is a difference of opinion of what is bad.

The hypocrisy is hysterical – that same guy criticizes the BATFE (who are bad) even though the LAPD (who are even worse) enforces much more draconian gun laws than the BATFE.

It’s not an insult.

Enforcers enforce what they are told to enforce against those they are instructed to enforce against. Sometimes they enforce laws without being ordered to do so just to ride the power trip. Sometimes they enforce things that aren’t even laws. Why not?

I’d by content if they just left good people alone.

It’s easy to pick cherries in a cherry orchard. Will (“TEX”) was an average enforcer and just like the average enforcer he would use laws to mess with people he didn’t like. He would use minor traffic violations to stop people he didn’t like and then use all the cheap cop tricks to do his best to escalate the situation and then lie and charge people with trumped-up charges. The people would not be found guilty because they weren’t guilty. However, the process is the punishment and people like Will use that to punish people for not submitting to his… Read more »

Too bad you can’t turn on a light in your head so you don’t get owned all the time. Or at least be smart enough to know you’re owned. After a life of confusing thug-power with IQ & groveling with respect, you have no mental equivalent of a side arm to control smart people. Sad.

Just as the firearms industry finds work-arounds for poorly written laws, LEO will take advantage of every chink in laws protecting our rights from them.

There is still a federal process for buying a made-in-Texas suppressor in Texas. Call any firearm store in Texas that sells suppressors and ask them if you need to go through the federal process – they will say “yes.” You were wrong about that, Will (“TEX”).

After Chief Deputy, Captain Dan Weanburg (sp?) of the McLennan County Sheriff’s office contacted the BATFE and got them involved in the affairs of the group at Mt. Carmel, nothing happened to him.

When Weanburg directed Gene Barber, who was a Lieutenant of the McLennan County Sheriff’s Department, to work with the BATFE he did so and nothing happened to him.

“Red state*” rural sheriffs are not what people think.

“rural TEXAS will keep it RED for 100yrs”. NO SALE. It’s infested with dozens of Vichy Rs like Cornyn, Crenshaw, Abbott & his tag-team pal Speaker Phelan.

e.g. Abbott refused to put child gender change on the special agenda “because it has no chance” (after he & Phelan took big $ from gender change firms).

Their games are well documented on https://texasscorecard.com/

“We’re approaching the point where transcripts from Abbott’s pressers can be used as a border wall. Abbott’s usual border crisis theme: ‘We hope Biden fixes it.’

Asked if he’d close ports of entry (urged by challenger Don Huffines to pressure Mexico) Abbott deflected.
   
The crisis won’t be fixed by begging Joe Biden. The states must exercise sovereign authority, stop asking permission, get to work.”

Phelan passed ‘vote integrity’ but cut fraud to misdemeanor. Abbott signed hoping no one noticed. But pressured by irate real Rs, he talked tough, put ‘enhanced penalty’ on the agenda for Phelan to block.

Those numbers only tell part of the story.

People like Carter, McCaul, Cornyn, Crenshaw, and others are another part of the story.

@JSNMGC – Thanks for the info. Will call Cornyn as soon as I get out of current meeting. @Wild Bill – My admiration continues to grow. I struggle to just train my dog to not attack other dogs in public. As for cats – maybe I need to stop trying to sweep them away from keyboard, but they distract our parrot and are risk of injury if they piss her off.

As for me, I don’t see the “Conservative vs. Libtard” equation as state by state, but rather as city vs. rural. I see it that way due to the voting maps that I have seen. The good news is that rural people have the cities surrounded. We could starve them out whenever we want to.

“rural TEXAS will keep it red 100yrs” –WillTEX

BS. It’s infested with Vichy Rs like Abbott & tag-team pal Phelan, Cornyn-Crenshaw et ilk. It’ll go red if guys like you stop dissembling/praising them. Their games can be seen on https://texasscorecard.com/ e.g.

Abb refused to put child gender change on the special agenda “because it has no chance” (after he & Phe took big $ from gender change firms).

Phe cut vote fraud to a misdemeanor. Abb signed hoping no one noticed. Pressured by irate real Rs, he talked tough, put ‘enhanced’ penalty (restore felony) on the agenda – for Phe to block for him.

Response to Will (“TEX”):

Was I wrong about the McLennan County Sheriff Department contacting the BATFE and initiating their involvement in the Waco atrocity?

You have said I’m wrong about everything before, but you avoid specifics.

I’d say Texas is purple.

Ahh. Will (“TEX”) lashes out emotionally at comments that don’t fit into his worldview. My original point was that there is a misconception among many that rural sheriffs, especially from “red” states, are on the side of good* firearm owners. They (as a group – I’m sure there are some exceptions) are not. I specifically include Wyoming sheriffs in the group who are not on the side of good* firearm owners – they gave public testimony to the Wyoming State Judiciary Committee (when they sided with Moms Demand Action and Everytown for Gun Safety) that all of them want to… Read more »

We are living & watching a incremental death by a thousand cuts war of attrition on USA from within based on the Roman axiom – “ By Endurance We Conquer” of the Roman Masonic system in place & tactics used by Roman Emperor Fabian. He was dubbed “Cunctator” for a reason & it’s not a compliment. The founder & origin of irregular Guerrilla Warfare (they don’t teach it in schools either) against it’s own people. Also the origin of Fabian Socialism’s name. Stuff they leave out & don’t teach either.

I would like to recommend to you “In the Name of Rome” by Adrian Goldsworthy. It is about the generals that built the Roman Empire. I think that you will like it, and you can find a copy, inexpensively, on one of the various used book sites.

Thier oath to uphold the constitution means nothing . So in response anything these Marxist idiots pass means nothing . If it violates thier oath or the constitution then it is to be ignored as unconstitutional. Nice try clowns in DC but your circus act is a joke that I will never comply with .

The people who will enforce the laws took “oaths” as well – many of them at two different times in their life as armed, non-civilian, government employees.

They don’t need a backbone because they know people who view themselves as strong 2nd Amendment supporters will not only vote for them, but defend them when they push for more gun control.

Unfortunately, it’s in the nature of most government employees who represent or interact with non-government employees to attempt to control non-government employees. A free civilization (mid point between anarchy and totalitarianism) requires laws and people to enforce and prosecute violations of the laws. However, most politicians have positioned themselves away from the free civilization range on the continuum and placed themselves at various points in the totalitarianism range. We already have more than enough laws to prosecute people who commit violence against women (or anyone else). Regrettably, we have so many laws now, that enforcers and prosecutors can ruin (or… Read more »

Nothing will happen to them and the politicians who are “fighting for your 2nd Amendment rights” will not do one thing to organize an effort to see that those criminals:

  • Lose their jobs;
  • Lose their benefits, including their pensions;
  • Be put on a list of people who are not allowed to work for any federal government entity;
  • Be required to pay back the amounts they illegally received; and
  • Pay fines.

Thanks for posting the article.

The most likely outcome (based on countless other examples of egregious behaviour by federal, state, county, and city/town law enforcement), is that they will investigate themselves and find no wrongdoing.
