This is Where Republicans Stand on Gun Legislation

The New York Times went to every Republican Senator and asked them what it was they thought about gun control in the wake of the recent mass shooting in Texas, some said they were open to the idea, others said they were completely opposed, and some declined to respond.

Here are all the Republican Senators who are open to the idea of gun control as well as those who are putting their foot down when it comes to gun control:

Do they really believe that enhanced gun control would have stopped this wacko kid? If they do then they are far dumber than I ever imagined.

From the beginning of time, evil men have found a way to kill the good. Remove the weapon, and they’ll find another-or aquire one another way. The ONLY answer is for the good to be armed, and trained to protect themselves and their loved ones! That is the ONLY reason Japan didn’t attack us during WWII. Some things, haven’t changed!! From “clubs” to knives, to muskets, to automatics, their has always been evil, because Satan has always tried to defeat God. Guess what Satan-you’ll never succeed!!! You can kill the man, but not his soul, if he’s given his heart to God!!!

Tragic event yes but will more legislation stop such things from happening – “No.” The only thing democrats want to do is punish law abiding gun owners. Perhaps if authority would punish the little bastards instead of catch and release some of this will stop. The kid had been bullied for a period of time because of his speech, etc. He had mental issues and they even knew about the fighting between him and his mother and the fact she was a drug user. No “Red” flags came up when that was mentioned either by the media or known associates. So why do you want to punish law abiding gun owners once again. Treat the problem not the hipe from the media and democrats.

Guns do not kill people. Terrorists, Criminals, and Crazy People are “Using Guns” to kill people so the Liberal Democrat Gun Grabbers can use “Mass Shootings” as an “excuse” to pass More Gun Control Laws that will only affect Law Abiding American Citizens. Liberal Democrats want to Disarm the American People and Defund the Police so the Gangs and Criminal Rioters who make up a large percentage of their Voter Base will be the only ones with Guns and will be able to Control the Streets of our Cities (be the only ones who can use the Streets to Protest anything).

Schools must have Armed Guards and Locked Doors and Fences with locked gates. Police need to patrol streets around schools so they will be close enough to stop “mass shooters”.

New Yorkers generally never learn what is good for the city and state! They keep voting in the wrong people to lead. The liberals have destroyed this state and city which once was a beautiful and vibrant one. The daily high volume of crime with murders, theft and destruction of property is inconceivable and unfortunately no one in power currently is doing anything to curtail these horrific acts. I had high hopes that the new mayor of NYC, who was active in the police department, would turn the city crime around, but he has failed. He is running short on what his campaign promises signified.

“South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds said in a statement that ‘It’s one thing to say that, regardless of the facts, you should just do something. The question is whether something you would do would actually make a difference.’ ”

He has a point. There is no crisis so dire or situation so desperate that government cannot make matters worse. Doing the wrong thing, in this case, making it more difficult and expensive for law-abiding people to acquire the means to defend themselves and others from the evil and insane, is worse than doing nothing.

Congress would do far more good by doing away with policies and regulations that reward fatherlessness and investigating claims that certain anti-depressant medications unleash violent ideation in adolescents and young adults.

The first thing tyrannical governments do is take away the ability of the public to defend themselves. Stalin, Mao and Hitler all did it. They then went on to kill millions of people. This is why our founders put in the 2nd Amendment. The right of the people to bear arms shall not be infringed. Every single gun ban is unconstitutional. Bad people will always find a way to kill. They stab, bomb, burn or whatever they can think of. They also will get illegal guns. The left uses mass killings for their agenda of disarming the public. This is really what they want. So much easier to wield power when you have a defenseless population.

All this does is increase gun “sales” overall, because ppl go out & buy more guns, they are more afraid of these goddamned, incompetent, corrupt-‘virtue’-signalling, politicians, than, any deranged punk a-hole, shooter 👀for “soft” targets in ‘gun-free’ zones, the nincompoop-demo(n)©️rats & RINOs in the Swamp, have always & consistently, got this wrong. That’s their record, and the NRA thanks them for their screw-ups❓😂🤣

The real issue is not the weapons. It’s the total lack of respect for human life along with the hostility of these killers, and that is a societal problem that needs solved, not gun control. We are raising these killers, and we need to figure out what we are doing wrong. I think a large part starts in broken or dysfunctional families that fail to raise kids with love and training in morality and respect for others. Other clues may be in medications kids are raised with (ADHD, etc.), violence in entertainment (video games, movies, music, etc.), and an isolation from other kids that breeds resentment. Even though the guns were available, we did not see this when I grew up in the 1950s, so there must be causes in the society we have become. Sadly our stinking politicians won’t tackle the tough causes and want simple solutions, so they falsely pile on the inanimate weapons. The 2nd Amendment is needed as much today as at anytime in history to protect out freedom from those who would take it.

Politicians all want to look like they are really in support of the people. Let’s take Vehicles that KILL THOUSANDS of people of all ages every year. Why don’t they pass legislation that force auto makers to make cars go no faster than 75 mph, save approx. 50% more people, children and grown ups. How about banning the manufacturing of FUEL OIL AND ANHYDROX AMMONIA (FERTILIZER) the two substances used in the Oklahoma City Federal Building by Timothy McVay. How about making it mandatory to register HAMMERS, they kill more people every year much more than Firearms! To solve the problem we have, you have to have a POWERFUL DETERANT like the DEATH PENALTY. New York has NO DEATH PENALTY. That kid that killed all those people in Buffalo will just get the LIFE SENTENCE, THATS IT! Liberal politicians just want to disarm honest law biding citizens so they can have no resistance when they want to take over like they did in Germany and Russia. Democrats will do and say EXACTLY THE OPPOSIT of what they want. They want to have all the Firearms in their own CONTROL. CONTROL OF THE MASSES IS WHAT IT ALL ABOUT.. Liberal DEMON-CRATS HAVE A MENTAL DISORDER!!! They can’t handle the truth!!
