As Congress Puts Bum’s Rush on Gun Control, Who Are the Extremists?

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- ANALYSIS – Capitol Hill’s reaction to the Supreme Court’s landmark Second Amendment ruling striking down New York’s blatantly unconstitutional gun permit “good cause” requirement came swiftly as the Senate passed the so-called Bipartisan Safer Communities Act on a 65-33 vote.

The bill went to the U.S. House, where it is expected to pass, thanks to the Democrat majority. As noted by CBS News, the bill “imposes a more lengthy background check process for gun buyers under 21, funds mental health needs and closes the so-called ‘boyfriend loophole’ to prevent convicted domestic abusers from purchasing a firearm for five years.”

Crossing the aisle to vote with Democrats were the following Republicans: Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Sens. Richard Burr of North Carolina, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Susan Collins of Maine, John Cornyn of Texas, Joni Ernst of Iowa, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Rob Portman of Ohio, Mitt Romney of Utah, Thom Tillis of North Carolina, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, Todd Young of Indiana, and Roy Blunt of Missouri, according to Fox News.

Perhaps what is really happening is an effort to overshadow a Second Amendment victory with a gun control push, and maybe skip past an eruption of anti-gun extremism that included one liberal mouthpiece demanding on Twitter that the high court be abolished. Now that the Court has also overturned Roe v. Wade in a Friday morning announcement, the Left is going completely looney.

Sports journalist and political commentator Keith Olbermann raged Thursday, “It has become necessary to dissolve the Supreme Court of the United States. The first step is for a state the ‘court’ has now forced guns upon, to ignore this ruling. Great. You’re a court? Why and how do think you can enforce your rulings?”

He followed that rant with a vulgar tweet in which he declared, “Also, f–k Alito, Thomas, Roberts, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and the paralegal Coney Barrett.”

Note to Olbermann: And you call gun rights advocates “extremists?”

Anti-gun Democrat New York Gov. Kathy Hochul ‘s fury was also exhibited during a presser in which she raged, “I’m sorry this dark day has come, that we’re supposed to go back to what was in place since 1788 when the Constitution of the United States of America was ratified. And I would like to point out to the Supreme Court justices that the only weapons at the time were muskets. I’m prepared to go back to muskets.”

Perhaps her first move in that direction will be to arm her security detail with flintlock single-shot pistols. No? Didn’t think so.

The Biden Justice Department released a statement: “We respectfully disagree with the Court’s conclusion that the Second Amendment forbids New York’s reasonable requirement that individuals seeking to carry a concealed handgun must show that they need to do so for self-defense. The Department of Justice remains committed to saving innocent lives by enforcing and defending federal firearms laws, partnering with state, local and tribal authorities and using all legally available tools to tackle the epidemic of gun violence plaguing our communities.”

Note to Attorney General Merrick Garland:  It was a state law, not a federal law, the Court struck down.

Justice Clarence Thomas reminded the DoJ and everyone else, “We know of no other constitutional right that an individual may exercise only after demonstrating to government officers some special need. That is not how the First Amendment works when it comes to unpopular speech or the free exercise of religion. It is not how the Sixth Amendment works when it comes to a defendant’s right to confront the witnesses against him. And it is not how the Second Amendment works when it comes to public carry for self-defense.”

Rights are rights, not regulated privileges.

Joe Biden issued a statement, likely written by someone on his staff, observing, “Since 1911, the State of New York has required individuals who would like to carry a concealed weapon in public to show a need to do so for the purpose of self-defense and to acquire a license. More than a century later, the United States Supreme Court has chosen to strike down New York’s long-established authority to protect its citizens.”

Note to Joe Biden: New York’s Legislature does not have the authority to override a constitutionally-protected fundamental right to keep and bear arms. One does not need to justify the exercise of a right.

“I urge states to continue to enact and enforce commonsense laws to make their citizens and communities safer from gun violence,” Biden added.

Those laws better comply with the Constitution and the Supreme Court decision.

Steve Kerr, the anti-gun-rights coach of the Golden State Warriors, sent out a fund-raiser for the Brady gun prohibition lobbying group. As part of his pitch, Kerr stated, “Now, with states greatly restricted in keeping concealed guns out of public spaces, who knows where people will bring their guns: public transit, crowded sidewalks, malls, and stores… Everywhere you don’t want them.”

Note to Kerr: A lot of people want the tools to fight back if they are attacked in public spaces such as transit, malls, stores or even on sidewalks.

As reported by Reuters, “The ruling lets states prohibit guns in “sensitive places,” likely beyond locations such as courthouses and legislative buildings those that historically met that definition. Thomas wrote that courts “can use analogies to those historical regulations” of sensitive places.”

The Reuters story was erroneously headlined, “U.S. Supreme Court expands gun rights, strikes down New York law.”

 

Note to Reuters: The Court didn’t “expand” anything. The ruling simply restored a right that has been arbitrarily denied to far too many people.

Watch Biden, Garland, Hochul, Kerr and even Olbermann start trying to define “sensitive places” to apply anywhere outside one’s front door.

The New York ruling just opened the door for more major Second Amendment battles.

The real extremist’s are those manipulators behind the curtain of the Shadow Government’s “Hidden Hand” who pull the strings that pit us against the other controlled opposition polemics they create under the guise of color & authority of law. Doesn’t & isn’t exclusively politics either. Can be religious sect against another’s religious sectarian be-LIE-f’s. Been that way since Egypt/Babylon/Mohenjo-daro cultures. Rome’s founding two twin brother’s raised by wolves Remus/Rebus (Cain & Able) were just the most brutal & obvious. Hindu Caste system was same. They won’t teach you in contemporaneous schools but the answers are there for those who know… Read more »

Who are the elite that control the extremist ? This ny gov will not have it easy if she seeks to run for election. Getting appointed is one thing having the respect of the people is another she has not earned that.She is a party favor that we all hope will fade away she has left a bad taste in the mouths of NYS residents.

swmft

the next elected governor will have their hands full fixing the mess left by the last two

Wild Bill

George Soros, and his many organizations and sub organizations. Research the Tides Foundation for more.

swmft

one of the groups that will have to be removed from government by the roots

Ope

I thought George Soros died a few months back. It’s a damn shame I’m wrong about that.

Bucketboy

Another ignorant governor (politicians).
Muskets? How stupid can this dumb B.
I hope some of the damage done by loser Mitch McConnell and Romney and his ilk can be undone if trump gets elected again.
I hope the weak knee senators and reps can pick a stronger senate majority leader and someone in the house that’s not Paul Ryan.

swmft

we need a true conservative as president trump is a product of new york he will never truly be conservative , but he is better than what we have by a long stretch

Oldman

Is there anybody in either the House or the Senate who is a real Conservative? I can only think of one in the Senate, Kennedy from Louisiana? Anyone?

Russn8r

For me it’s limited to the 5 who were ready to vote for the Hawley-Cruz audit & stood tall on both AZ & PA votes in the face of 1/6 hysteria. Sadly excludes Kennedy, who chickened out on one of them, and Rand Paul, who actively lobbied against the audit for weeks, using slimy doubletalk.

Hawley
Cruz
Marshall
Hyde-Smith
Tuberville

Not without flaws, but they’re the only ones brave enough to stay true on both votes.

DIYinSTL

How about the other senator from Missouri, Josh Hawley? Does Tom Cotton (Arkansas), Mike Crapo (Idaho), Rand Paul (Kentucky), or Tim Scott (South Carolina) merit consideration?

Oldman

Thank You! Yes I think they all could be considered, especially Josh Hawley and Rand Paul….Tim Scott? I am not so sure about him.

Russn8r

Kennedy voted for The Big Steal (PA). Only one on that list who stood his ground is Josh Hawley.

Those who certified The Big Steal are not conservatives. Only 5 didn’t:

Hawley
Cruz
Tuberville
Hyde-Smith
Marshall.

Kennedy chickened out, certified PA. Slimy Rand lobbied senate & public for weeks to certify everything. Cotton, Crapo & Scott are all RINOs. Check out Scott here.

Hawley

Hyde-Smith
Marshall

Slimy Rand lobbied senate & public for weeks to certify everything, real doubletalk. Cotton, Crapo & Scott are all RINOs.

Now the next thing to be brought to the Supreme Court should bethese RED FLAG LAWS, Guilty Before DUE PROCESS, this is a bigger threat and totally UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!! Lets see if there is a LAWER with a back bone to take this up before the COURT? This would be a real stop to the GUN GRABBERS!

Russn8r

And the court needs to figure out how to redo its subversive decision in TX v PA or DemComs will eventually lock down The Steal, get perma-control, stack the court, reverse Bruen-Heller-McD & reinstate Roe v Wade.

IN reality, this bill is a nothingburger for the left’s base.

Arkansas Rob

“Biden” urges more laws. Because laws stop lawbreakers.

Olbermann, along with Biden, would have done well for themselves had they been born in communist East Germany or Soviet Russia.

If Workman hadn’t betrayed the reform camp in 1997 to keep LaPew in power by ONE vote this wouldn’t’ve happened.

Downvoting truth doesn’t alter it. FACT: Had Dave not turned coat for LaPew, the ‘hard corps’ would be in charge. NRA would’ve left NY decades ago & up $Billions = ELECTIONS = consequences.

Don’t whine about NRA’s board, then protect those who put them in position to destroy the NRA in the 1st place.

“We tried to fire Wayne in ’97. Workman turned coat to block the reform 32-33.”

The answer to the question,would be the tyrannical action within congress.
The juxtaposition of SCOTUS correcting infringements while those in congress were actively further infringing that which “Shall Not Be Infringed”.

Trump never learns.

Montana454Casull

It appears all these corrupt pieces of crap need the learning curve advanced for them when it comes to rights and the constitution ! Tyrants only learn one way !

Arny

I’m amazed how I can up vote comments but yet it shows NO change. In order for this to happen. I would guess someone has to vote at the very same time I am in the opposite direction each & every time. That or my vote has no value. Kind of like past elections. lol

Laddyboy

This MISCOUNTING of the THUMBS-UP has occurred to me MULTIPLE TIMES!

Russn8r

True, but most of all one who claims to be the smartest executive in the world & leader of the MAGA party needs to start vetting and stop hiring, nominating & endorsing RINOs who are sure to stab him & all of us in the back, e.g. anti-gun dual Turkish perv OZ.

Bucketboy

Yes. He picks the biggest backstabbers. Amazing

Russn8r

And I get downvoted by Glow Jobs and sock puppet crybabies for mentioning it.
